Wiki preview popups
« on: April 14, 2020, 11:10:59 am »

Since the mediawiki's version is now 1.32, would it be possible to reconsider installing this extension ?

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Popups#Installation

Which would show previews when hovering over a link to an article.
It does not look like we would have to go over every existing article. The preview will be the article's image (if any) with a text excerpt.

Yeah, sounds good! I opened a ticket here, which hopefully helps us remember a little better.

Note that my current priorities on the wiki are upgrading Mediawiki (again...) and figuring out how to upgrade PHP and/or Ubuntu before they reach their end of life, so I can't promise it will happen any time soon.
