Chameleon Infobox float on right and thus is offset on the left on narrow screen

See File:Infobox is offset on the left.png

because float: right is hardcoded in table style...

>1140 px Chameleon The content width is limited to 1140px, which could cause tables to appear squished on larger screens.
@media (min-width: 1200px) { 
  .container { max-width: 100%; } /* Convenient for readers with large monitors */
  #p-logo { margin-left: 30px; } /* Aligning logo with page title */
on mobile phone screens. Chameleon Navigation boxes and the bottom option bar appear squished

done to make {{anchor highlight}} work:

      display: inline;

      background-color: gold;
      border-radius: 0.2em;
      color: black;
      line-height: 1em;    
      padding-top: 0;
done The cookie bar warning (displayed to first-time visitors) should be at the bottom of the page instead of the top, because it inconveniently blocks the Login button, which requires users to click twice to reach the login page. This code puts it at the bottom.
.mw-cookiewarning-container {
done narrow screens: To avoid #toc squishing on
@media (max-width:960px) {
         #toc { max-width:50%; }
@media (max-width:640px) {
         #toc { float:none;max-width:100% }
done All page containing a TOC Highlight section titles when navigating to their anchor (clicking a section title inside the table of contents), to allow the user to find it again faster and orientation.
.mw-headline:target { 
done Module The 'stub templates read “Wikipedia” (examples). The word “Wikipedia” has been changed to “EverybodyWiki” in line 233 of Module:Asbox 2020-09-19.
done User pages In user sub pages (example), the sections show up: Creator of 0 articles, Last editor of 0 articles and Editor of 0 articles. These counts are only supposed to show up on user's main pages, not sub pages. Fix on MediaWiki:Hf-nsfooter-User
Missing user links at the top on narrow screens


  • When clicking on bell of notifs a blank screen appears instead of content of notifications



  • Done 2020-08-20 Table of content is not yet clear:right;, which cause it to protuce to the left (see: Iran), if an image is inserted at the top.
    • Until this is fixed, a temporary patch added to articles such as Benefits of user-replaceable batteries is <span style="float:right; clear:right;">__TOC__</span>.
    • But in some case, the TOC could appear at the bottom of the page :(
  • Done 2020-08-22 165px tall logo,#p-logo a { height: 165px ;}
    • Because many people view pages at more than 100% browser zoom, the logo (File:Mon Logo.png) should be re-rendered as scaleable vector graphic (SVG) to provide indefinite scalability on higher resolution screens.
      • 2020-09-20 WikiMaster i'm designing a new logo and will make it in svg
  • Add td { vertical-align:top;} to align the content of table cells to the top, which improves the readability of larger tables.
  • Add this to MediaWiki:Common.css to allow linking to section anchors while still including the section title on screen:
    • 2020-09-27 WikiMaster: Where can I see this beahaviour (screenshot or page) ?
      • Here: Sandbox#test4. The anchor is inside section, yet the title is on screen. The other parameters (updated code) are to prevent blocking the mouse 100px above the anchor. --–– Handroid7  discuss
        】 01:38, 28 September 2020 (CEST)
/* To include section title on screen when jumping to a section anchor created using Template:Anchor */
.anchor > span,
span.anchor { 
    padding-top: 100px; 
    pointer-events: none; 
.anchor-plain { z-index: -100; }

  • Too much text distance on {{su}}. Example
  • Right border of user boxes covered by center area. Example on the right.
    Check-green.svgThis user appreciates constructive criticism

Site appearance[edit]

  • Since around three days, the icons from the links and tool bars are missing.
    • WikiMaster you mean close to "Recent Changes" link ?
      • I mean close to username and the tools at the bottom (What links here, etc.). --–– Handroid7  discuss
        11:54, 30 October 2020 (CET)


  • When logging in without checking “☐ Keep me logged in”, the login session expires after only three minutes. It should be extended to 15 minutes to prevent encouraging users to enable “☑ Keep me logged in” when editing from public computers and risk forgetting to log off.

Template loop[edit]

https://en.everybodywiki.com/Category:Pages_with_template_loops 2 pages 2019-05-08

References appear as blank[edit]

on Quantum_field_of_magnet ref # 3,4 and 5

Reason: lua errors has been hidden by Common.css

Solution : fix error message

Bad content model[edit]

Page Template:Nobold/styles.css must have content model "Sanitized CSS" for TemplateStyles (current model is "wikitext"

Solution : change the content model thanks to the Special:ChangeContentModel

Structured discussions[edit]

Special pages[edit]

  • The MediaWiki page Special:Export does currently not work. More information about it here. This may be caused by a setting in LocalSettings.php.
  • On a user contributions page, an “Internal error” appears instead of showing the editing history when viewed without being logged in, if it attempts to list structured discussion.
    • 2020-08-22 Wikimaster cannot reproduce this BUG as anon

Error messages[edit]

How to get Nb pages in error ? -> Search the error message on Special:Search, increase th elimit to 5000, search error message wiith control F. the total or number of result is dispayed at the top right. Example "Results 1 – 612 of 612"
