  • Hello again. I noticed that on Watts' page his infobox has become quite long. I was thinking perhaps using those dropdown codes that are seen in main character pages could be useful? I'm afraid I don't have much experience with the coding side of things, though - I'm a writer. Just thought it could make for a more organized page.

    • Hi there, thanks for the infobox note. We've stopped using the previous mark-up for the dropdown as they do not function on mobile devices – thus the episode listing remains long. Over half our visitors use their mobile devices to visit. In addition, this wiki was created on Fandom's legacy platform which will eventually move to the new platform in the near future - thus the infoboxes are caught between the codes. Be reassured: Updating the dropdown code across this wiki is on our Summer To-Do list (as soon as we decide which infobox markup to use!), so we will keep you posted as we move forward. ;^)

    • We've begun the update towards migration to portable. To clarify: a couple of years back, Fandom created the portable infobox (different markup) and recommended that legacy wikis (those established earlier) migrate their existing infoboxes to the portable infobox markup as it works better on mobile devices, but not all elements migrate or functions the same. On our MM wiki — compare the inboxes on the actor's page with their character page. Before migrating all the MM infoboxes to the portable markup, we want a closer match to the original design; Admin has been tweaking the markup in CSS (all code) in addition to cleaning up all templates used inside the infoboxes. In addition, collapsibles, tabs and tables do not translate the same on mobile devices (if at all!). So we have been very cautiously working on the migration and preparing for the change to the new platform – so as not to disrupt the visitors' experience of the wiki.

    • Ah, I understand! Migrating all that must be tricky business. Good luck!

    • We updated Watts infobox as you requested; While the lists are not collapsible on mobile devices, it does appear more organized and matches the style/format better. Thanks again for the suggestion.
