currently looks horrible in the wiki. The font is too big. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Fixed (well, I assume you wanted it the same size as everything else) as seen in https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Fortasse:Sandbox.

The css change if you’re interested:

/* fix blockquote font size */

blockquote p {
    font-size: 14px;
}

/* end fix blockquote font size */

If you have any other blockquote-related css changes you want to make, you can do it in the block at the bottom of https://www.whonix.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Common.css.

Yay, that’s great!

On a related note, can we reduce the size/impact of the break (br /) function also?

For example, look at my recent changes to this template here:

http://kkkkkkkkkk63ava6.onion/w/index.php?title=Template:Prevent_Bypassing_the_Tunnel-Link_Warning_Box&oldid=28697&diff=cur

The 1 x break (br /) insert make its look like there is two or three carriage returns between the lines, when ideally you’d have a one line gap between text blocks?

But, the (br /) function seems to work okay in blockquotes okay e.g. see this example in first quote here:

http://kkkkkkkkkk63ava6.onion/wiki/Template:FoxyProxy

What gives?


#5

I wonder why we need <br /> inside blockquotes anyhow. For me that’s a bug.


#6

This is a symptom of how Mediawiki interprets
tags. It puts them in their own

tag (for whatever reason) and our stylesheet has a margin of 10px on

elements.

I don’t know of any way to fix this without making all other

elements be squished together as a side effect.


#7

Another mediawiki issue.

Note that when wiki entries have the normal (non-footnoted) text ending in bullet points, the references (footnotes) lose their numbering [1, 2, 3…] and instead have bullet points in place of those numbers.

This appears in many places throughout the entire wiki.

Here’s one example, my edits here:

Template:Qubes_NetVM_error

Fixable?


#8

A post was split to a new topic: Wiki Footer Font should be increased


#9

Perhaps if someone manages to successfully explain that issue to the mediawiki developers and create a bug report.
