  • I and Robergestudios were contacted by a new staff member from the wiki central community she wanted us to change our interface for info boxes to make displays easier for mobile phone users. This is the link she sent me on the subject. Also as she put it.

    We all have a lot of other projects that need our attention naturally, but we should get started on this soonish. So I just wanted to let you know about the interface change for that coming up and what it's for.

    • I look foreward to having my wikimoble fixed. Thank you

      By the way, what do you mean by Clean up issues? You mean like...gallery limits?

    • I think Mesektet means and the categories that are to be deleted but with large amounts of pages like the Humans Category.

    • Perhaps I should sign myself in on my iphone? I've never have signed for edits on my iphone just this computer. Maybe I should do that?

    • Unfortunatly my phone is down for now and am using a very unreliable and slow computer so it might take a little time to respond. Sorry but the only advise I can give is log out for a short time give it a few moments so that it has time to cool down and log back in. Again sorry but that is all I got at the moments.

      that didn't work. Any other ideas? Does Meskeret or other admins know what's the problem?

    • Sadly no I don't and not sure if the others have any ideas best you ask them personally if Meskeret doesn't answer here soon.

    • The issue is apparently our info boxes were technically out of date so the conversion tool Central wiki gave us was out of date. It's like putting a Windows 10 update on a computer which up until then has only had Windows 8. This is apparently a somewhat common issue for other wikis so I am looking for someone on another wiki who has experience making technical data upgrades and is willing to help.

    • Meskeret, It's been almost a month and my moble wiki STILL is not working. How close are you to fixing the moble wiki and make it display correctly? I wanna be able to edit not only on the computer but also my phone. And the moble display still isn't displaying properly. How close are you to fixing the issue? please tell me.

    • Little progress has been made I am sorry to say, we still don't know why the interface works for some wikis and not others. I have put this to the side while prioritizing some category issues but you are right the issue needs to be pressed.

    • There is now a Portable info box that should be Iphone captable however still unsure how to add a edit and image icon to it which somewhat undoes the point.

      I'm...not sure what you mean by that.

    • When entering templates type Template:Portable Infobox, use that to see the boxes you wish via your moblie phone. However there is still an issue with them. The edit and image parts of the template are still not showing up.
