We’ve just pushed another update to the Kuma platform deployed on MDN! Let’s take a look at an overview of what’s been done:

  • Page move now correctly disallows attempts to move pages to a URL for which there is no parent page.
  • Page move is now constrained to a single locale.
  • Template (macro) pages no longer have a language selection menu, since these are always edited in the en-US locale and are localized in their code.
  • When viewing on a mobile phone, MDN is now presented in a 1-column view.
  • The list of search filters on search results pages now has an empty checkbox drawn when not selected; previously there was no indicator until you selected each filter.
  • The height of the sidebar “See also” box has been corrected in “small desktop” layout.
  • Updated the appearance of the search box in the header area.
  • Rendering of the language drop-down has been improved so that parentheses are no longer in the wrong place in RTL languages.
  • Corrected the layout of the search results page in right-to-left locales.
  • Improve heading structure on the homepage to put items in the correct order for screen readers.
  • Microdata has been implemented for breadcrumbs for Google search results.
  • The left margin has been removed on the first navigation item, and its submenu shadow has been lightened.
  • The home-globe.svg image used on the home page has been replaced with a PNG to save bandwidth.
  • PNG images have been optimized to save bandwidth.
  • The padding at the bottom of the <li> element has been tightened up.
  • Platform localization docs have been updated a bit.

Whew! That’s quite a list! As you can see, page move is getting there. It’s technically done, but we’ve run into a clash with another process that needs to be resolved before we start using it in the field. Soon, I hope!
