Description Broken Arrow 2006-12-03 22:49:51 UTC
Due to the new long autosummaries, the current layout of Special:Newpages is
hard to read, especially on small screens (see example above). 

The lack of dedicated CSS classes prevents code-independent changes (e.g.
margins, bolding items, indenting) that could be implemented locally, without
triggering site-wide UI-change syndrome.

Note: Unpatrolled entries currently have the "not-patrolled" class if patrolling
is active.

This bug can probably be closed. Special:Newpages can be styled based on the page-Special_NewPages class on the <body> tag.
Comment 2 Daniel Friesen 2008-03-24 03:07:14 UTC
Checking on various Wikipedia locales:
fr: page-Special_Nouvelles_pages
de: page-Spezial_Neue_Seiten
it: page-Speciale_PaginePiùRecenti

The page css class is localized. IMHO, this wouldn't be a proper way to resolve the issue, especially if said css was used somewhere that setup css shared across all their sites in different locales, or if a wiki tried to copy css from a wiki using the technique which was in a different language of the wiki they are on.
Comment 3 Mike Dillon 2008-03-24 03:43:08 UTC
It seems like it would be easy enough to make it so that pages in the Special namespace always have a class for the canonical name in addition to the current class for the localized name.
Comment 4 Raimond Spekking 2010-08-09 19:12:40 UTC
With r70773 I added classes to all elements of a NewPages line. Should be stylable for all kinds of fashion now :-)

Also, unneeded elements can be hidden per CSS in case of transclusion.
