Mobile Infoboxes

Hello Alwaysmore2hear,

I saw your message here and I was wondering some stuff about making pages mobile friendly. In the past I have tried to do this, but maybe you can help me out with some questions.

  1. How to properly include CSS for mobile devices? What I have tried is: add css to MediaWiki:Handheld.css. Back in 2013 this seemed to work, but now some stuff with class "mobile-hide" still shows up on my mobile phone.
  2. Is there a way to make Javascript be included and work on mobile phones as well, or is this not a good idea to have?

For another site I made responsive I used

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
in the html and then for example
@media (max-width: 480px) { some css }
in the css. Isn't that a better approach than having one thing for desktops and one for mobile phones? I'm curious to hear your opinion and advice. Kind regards, -- Bennie (talk ~ fellows) 18:34, July 26, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. It seems I misjudged your expertise, apparently your were more the messenger than the expert, but that's ok, I'll ask via Special:Contact. Btw, my question was actually quite directly related to making Infoboxes mobile friendly, hiding redundant parts via CSS is simply a way to achieve this. -- Bennie (talk ~ fellows) 09:58, July 28, 2015 (UTC)

Hey Jamie,

Thanks for your message. I took a look, but I don't think our wiki is interesed in this new feature. Thanks for reaching out though! -- Bennie (talk ~ fellows) 17:00, January 5, 2018 (UTC)
