Links from history page in mobile advanced mode

  • Problem: Currently, in mobile advanced mode on a history page, it is just like a fully-featured history page on the desktop version as pointed out during the implementation of the feature. However, there is no link to the [read] page or [edit] page directly at all (for example, from this to this) which is incredibly inconvenient. The history page features were redesigned from the desktop version to fit the mobile web interface but the desktop version has the link above all of those features, and I think that's why these important links were forgotten.
  • Proposed solution: Add the links (read and edit) from the history page. Perhaps having something like "$wgPageName (edit)".
  • Who would benefit: All mobile web users using mobile advanced mode
  • More comments: The link that should definitely be added is that to the [read] page. This is a feature that is also available on the mobile web interface without advanced mode, so it makes no sense to not include it in advanced mode. I would be fine if the [edit] page cannot be linked since the history page is already quite crowded.

    But what about the revision from the mobile? I think mobile users should get the length of the page they're watching the history. Thingofme (talk) 02:21, 1 February 2022 (UTC)
