Community Wishlist Survey 2017/Multimedia and Commons/Enable additional links in the GallerySlideshow

Enable additional links in the GallerySlideshow

  • Problem: In a gallery page I can insert links (to further images in a category or gallery) in the image's captions. Any link is visible and works only in the pages view, not in the GallerySlideshow.
  • Who would benefit: Each User of a Slideshow of a gallery containing such links
  • Proposed solution: Enable the Gadget to show links containd in the captions

  • Phabricator tickets:


  • I've moved this from the "Bots and gadgets" section to the "Multimedia and Commons" section. However I wonder if it could be merged into the Community Wishlist Survey 2017/Multimedia and Commons/Fix Gallery slideshow proposal, which is currently a list of the 4 specific bugs that @MichaelSchoenitzer: has identified. (We discourage abstract "fix all the things with X" proposals, but I think a limited and specific list like that one, is ok.) Thanks. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 19:48, 17 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • It's not a bug, but a fail in function for galleries. Showing file descriptions ist enough for category slide shows. A gallery slideshow should show the gallery file captions, and, may be, the file descriptions, too - but not the file descriptions only (without the captions). Please consider that even the captions are essential for underständing a gallery. Thanks and greetings --Wilhelm Zimmerling PAR (talk) 22:39, 9 December 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
