Main Page (talk)
Note: This page is for discussion of the Main Page only. General discussion or questions about Wikisource belong at the Scriptorium.

Older comments are moved to the archives. The main page code is modularised for ease of editing. Some of the formatting is in the site stylesheet, and the major sections are templated: featured text, new texts, main categories, Collaboration, and sister projects.

What ever happened to the new look for the main page[edit]

It was around this time last year when the idea came up and its been sitting in the Sandbox ever since? If nobody is going to work to its end, I'd like to remove not only the old .css from more than 2 revisions ago but this idle attempt as well. -- George Orwell III (talk) 01:32, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

link to draft revisions?--Doug.(talk contribs) 17:21, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
@Doug: The only one I'm aware of is found at... https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Main_Page/sandbox
By all means -- feel free to take the bull by the horns. I was referring to 6 years of accumulated .css however -- mostly parked in Gadget-enws-mainpage.css but there's some code in the current Common.css however. -- George Orwell III (talk) 17:52, 5 March 2015 (UTC)


Problem with July’s Grab A Download link[edit]

The featured text is Doctor Syn; the Grab A download is for Ellis Stanyon’s Magic. Or am I missing something? Akme (talk) 11:36, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Fixed. Thanks. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:58, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Not that I have anything against a little magic in my life. -- Akme (talk) 14:00, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Multilingual Wikisource[edit]

Hi. The one place it doesn't look like you can find directly from this page is the Main Page for the multilingual Wikisource (i.e., //wikisource.org/, or mul:). Any chance of someone adding a manual link to there somewhere on this page? Or maybe that will work through Wikidata, as long as only the one page from :s:mul: is linked there? (it doesn't) StevenJ81 (talk) 15:56, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

This was contemporaneously resolved with a manual link. StevenJ81 (talk) 00:10, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

June's featured text 'Grab a download link'[edit]

Link is wrong, downloads "Studies of a Biographer" instead. – Jberkel (talk) 10:53, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

Looks like there's a mistranslation on the main page[edit]

It currently says "Œdipus (1718, 1906 for traduction)". It looks like the French word traduction has been incorrectly used in place of the English word "translation". Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 13:20, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

Looks like it's okay English, but there should be no objection to making the change at Template:New texts. User:Bradype is the editor who made the edit. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 16:11, 5 April 2017 (UTC)
OK. I've done that. And now that I know about it, I won't hesitate to make any changes I think need to be made to the New texts template in the future. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 16:59, 5 April 2017 (UTC)
Oups… Sorry for the French word… Bradype (talk) 05:55, 6 April 2017 (UTC)

Main page in mobile[edit]

On my mobile device, the Collaboration section of the main page doesn't appear in mobile view. Just curious as to why. Londonjackbooks (talk) 19:18, 28 October 2017 (UTC)
