Believe it or not, it's finally happened. I think at least some of us were suspicious — I bring one of them — thanks to the category bug yesterday. Alao, our images preview, which you get when you click on an image in the images module, is quite different as well — more of a sideshow.
This upgrade also brings to where we have to catch with web standards. The signature that worked until now could stop doing so! Thr same applies to other code you and everyone else wrote using older tags, such:
- center (and other placement tags)
- clear="all" (all tags with that attribute)
And many other older HTML tags. Here is a list of the supported tags. If you want to, located your signature and other code, go on the reference page, click Ctrl+F or Command+F (for Mac), type in the name of the tag, and tap on enter. See what information you can find about it, and if it's not supported in HTML5, it will need be fixed, then do so.
Or you can just go to the Coding Companions and find an HTML5 specialized user; they'll do all that work for you! Feel free to request a faster job. Just put
MediaWiki upgrade: in front of your request.
Have a great day!
