Hey. The current Deity Infobox uses a tabbed design for the edition sections, which may compromise the portability of the infobox and make it less adaptable to Mercury. While the tabs are not native, it is possible to have collapsible groups that are toggled by the headers. These are both native and portable.
  • The header-collapsible groups in the draft work in Mercury.
  • There is no way to style these to be tabbed.
  • On desktop, they take up more vertical space than the original solution.
  • They do not rely on an initialism so they'll be more intuitive.

I made this forum to suggest copying the infobox code in the draft template I've made to the parent template (and then deleting it). The linked draft has the full infobox, with the header-collapsible groups.

As the self-appointed Keeper of the Templates around here, please do not make any changes to our templates without getting approval from myself or one of the other admins.

I prefer the tabs because of your third bullet point above. Expanding and collapsing the groups messes with the flow of text and other pics in an article (tabs do this also, but to a lesser extent), and it's easier to compare the same stats between editions just by toggling the tab. However, I realize that more and more people are using mobile devices to access our wiki and the change to collapsible groups might make it more appealing to those users.

I would like to hear what other people think, especially those who view this wiki on a mobile device. This will change the style of the wiki somewhat. How do you feel about it?
