Hello everyone! I’d like to draw your attention to a software change coming
to wikis this week:
When you click on a footnote which is referenced multiple times in an
article, it can be hard to find your way back to your reading position in
This will soon become easier: If you have jumped to a multi-referenced
footnote and want to go back to your previous reading position,
1) you can now click on the *jump mark* at the beginning of the footnote
(in most wikis it's an arrow, in some, like enwiki, it's a caret ^). The
tooltip says "Jump back up".
2) or you can click on the *superscript jump mark* in the footnote. The one
leading you back to your original position is now highlighted *bold*.
This second part of the change doesn’t work for wikis where these
superscript jump marks are bold by default, e.g. enwiki. If those wikis
want this highlighting as well, they would need to change their default
style for these superscript jump marks to regular.
Deployment of this change is scheduled for this week’s train .
Originating from the German community’s Technical Wishlist, it was made by
Wikimedia Germany’s Technical Wishes team .
Feedback is always appreciated. The best place for it is the project talk
page . More information is available on the project page  and on
