Thanks - Joshua Pearce (talk) 16:33, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

@J.M.Pearce, Sophivorus: We'll look into it. Is the domain thriveglobal.com? Emilio (talk) 17:28, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
Yes. Thank you! Joshua Pearce (talk) 17:35, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
Done! Sophivorus (talk) 21:09, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Profile icon idea[edit source]

Just wondering about an idea?... What if when you hovered over a link to a user page, rather like when you hover cursor over an internal article link you get a popup preview incl image, over a userpage link you got a smallish popup preview of the image from the user info box? Would this be a good idea to make the site seem a bit more friendly, personable, welcoming, sociable, etc? Or is it a daft idea? It's late at night here! Just wondering. And is it do-able? Philralph (talk) 22:49, 30 December 2020 (UTC)

It's a great idea, but unfortunately there's a software limitation to it, see mw:Extension:Popups#Why don't I see Popups outside of content namespaces? There's a workaround mentioned there, but it's kind of hacky and would have some undesirable side effects like counting user pages as content pages in the site statistics, among others. :-( Sophivorus (talk) 23:01, 30 December 2020 (UTC)
Requesting this to the mw:Extension:Popups maintainers isn't a bad idea. The specific case for users seems like a really valid use for this! Let's cross fingers and hope they implement it. :)) Emilio (talk) 23:06, 30 December 2020 (UTC)
@Emilio Philralph Good news! While looking if it had already been requested, I found a ticket about it and there someone mentioned a workaround that, per being at the JavaScript level, should have much less side effects, if any. So I just enabled popups on the user namespace, check it out by doing a hard refresh (ctrl + alt + R) and scrolling over our names here! Sophivorus (talk) 23:55, 30 December 2020 (UTC)
Wonderful! Even better than I imagined! My image not displaying though? :-( I can maybe just swap another picture into the info box if that's the easiest thing to do? Philralph (talk) 10:30, 31 December 2020 (UTC)
@Philralph: Your image displays fine to me. Did you do a hard refresh? Sophivorus (talk) 11:14, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

'back to top button' for end of articles?[edit source]

Is there a way to do a back to the top of the page 'button' towards the end of articles? Or could we make one? eg see Citizens Action Network handbook#Featured video. No worries if not, happy to just use this for now, but just thought I'd ask, Cheers Philralph (talk) 09:25, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

Yes: just make a template that has any text you'd like with a link that leads to "[[#top|text]]". Koavf (talk) 11:14, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
@Philralph Hi! I just created Template:Back to top. You can use it wherever you want a back to top button, like I just did at Citizens Action Network handbook#Featured video. Will this do? Cheers! Sophivorus (talk) 12:37, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
@Sophivorus Terrific! Thanks! Philralph (talk) 15:10, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

Display skipping to other parts of the page[edit source]

Since yesterday when I go to a page it goes to some other part of the page rather than the top. Don't know if this anything to do with the above? Just now I tried clicking on back to the top at Citizens Action Network handbook#Featured video it goes to the top of that section? But the skipping seems to happen on other pages as well (?) Philralph (talk) 09:50, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

@Philralph You're right, it was my wrongdoing, sorry, I just fixed it. Please do a hard refresh (shift + ctrl + R) and it should behave normally now. Thanks for the report! Sophivorus (talk) 09:54, 6 January 2021 (UTC)
@Sophivorus, cheers! Philralph (talk) 10:00, 6 January 2021 (UTC)
