Testing Styling Improvements for Contribution on Mobile

Testing Styling Improvements for Contribution on Mobile

We're excited to share that we are testing some new styling changes for our contribution experience on mobile in order to make it more convenient for our customers to contribute.

 

Some of these changes include:

  1. The 'Submit' button becoming sticky which means you don't have to scroll to the bottom of the form to move to the next page.
  2. Improved styling of the forms so that it is convenient for you to find the desired options, and
  3. Reduced number of options on each page so that it reduces confusion.

Some of you might see these changes immediately but others might not as it's part of our testing strategy. If you have any feedback, we would love to hear from you.

Is anyone else having issues navigating the new Mobile page contributions layout? The "add" credits button was removed when you select "correct/delete" and the new layout is just so clunky looking.

Yes, I'm not sure why reduction of functionality (like being able to correct and add to the same section in one submission) is considered progress.

Previously there seemed to be a focus on providing the same features to mobile and desktop.

"b. Improved styling of the forms so that it is convenient for you to find the desired options"

"c. Reduced number of options on each page so that it reduces confusion."

 

For me the new layout caused more confusion and is harder to use, not convenient at all.  As the say goes "If it isn't broke, don't fix it".

Something else is going on, whereby the contribution history won't load without JavaScript being available and enabled.

Hi @jeorj_euler​ -

I confirmed with our tech team that this is expected behavior as the feature relies on JavaScript to fetch data and render it to the page.  Is there any particular reason you would want to disable JavaScript?

Yes, in order to make a copy of all my submissions, I used to be able to fetch every individual page without employing any additional mechanics. This would allow me to search for specific submissions. Also, even with JavaScript operational, one of the Web browsers I use won't load the contents of the submission form. When I observed what page elements the browser was fetching in the background, I noticed that some of the connections were returning HTTP error 400. I adjusted my cookie settings to make them more permissive and disabled some addons, but that didn't help. No errors show up in the browse's console logging facility.
