Responsive Design[edit]

@Traveler100: I have updated this template to match guidelines on mobile design at Template:WikivoyageSister/sandbox. As you'll notice, it no longer changes depending on desktop or mobile view. Instead, it changes based on the resolution of the browser. You can test this by resizing your browser window. This is called responsive design, and is the preferred way to do mobile sites. It is a little rough now, but incremental changes should be very simple to make by editing the styles.css file. If there are no problems, I will be expanding this design philosophy to more templates. Then, hopefully, we can shut off the deprecated mobile site and switch to the preferred one, and this will improve performance, greatly simplify the structure of the page, and allow us to easier troubleshoot problems.

@ARR8: this is a better solution. Just starting to discover the details of this topic. Agree we need to review Wikivoyage code and gradually fix pages to be responsive to browser size.--Traveler100 (talk) 05:51, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
Getting the idea. Create {{Communityportal}} using at Wikivoyage:Community portal/sandbox. As yet not worked out how you centered the icons on the page or how to make the gap between them wider. --Traveler100 (talk) 08:14, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
I've updated the code there to do centering. It is much simpler with that template than with this one, and so should be more obvious what is going on. The gap between items is controlled by the padding property. ARR8 (talk | contribs) 15:53, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
Again the issue now with template. When on another page it shows in mobile view, when on the main page does not show. --Traveler100 (talk) 12:19, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
I'm now convinced the issue is related to the deprecated main page we are using. Once we phase out mobile specific code and switch to a responsive design for all templates, everything should display properly (if this is indeed the case). ARR8 (talk | contribs) 15:53, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
I was wondering if it was to do with a mix of methods on the same page, but the sandbox is using the same methods and is not showing the problem. --Traveler100 (talk) 16:14, 13 February 2019 (UTC)


@SelfieCity: For consistency, please consider replacing Wikiversity's "Learning tools" with "Learning resources". See Wikipedia:Template:Wikipedia's sister projects and associated discussion. This would make Wikiversity the longest sister project description, but I'm not sure what else would work. Learning is fine, but the others are all nouns rather than verbs. I'm not sure "Resources" by itself conveys the same message. But "tools" just doesn't seem right. Thanks! -- Dave Braunschweig (talk) 18:41, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

Also, please consider adding or importing Wikipedia:Template:Edit protected. Thanks! -- Dave Braunschweig (talk) 18:41, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

@Dave Braunschweig:I’ve done the first of the requests. I’m not used to editing templates but I can look into doing the latter. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 20:20, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
