On my IPAD, Wikipedia’s automatically generated table of contents section no longer displays (unless I request the desktop site), although the heading and show/hide controls are still visible. On my Android phone, the table of contents including the header has disappeared. Have I misconfigured something or has Wikipedia indeed changed its TOC display on mobile devices? And where in Wikipedia can I read about this sort of thing?

  • This is one of the alterations made by the MediaWiki extension called MobileFrontend on the subdomain m.wikipedia.org. Normal extensions have help pages, in this case you have to dig under the devs documentation at mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:MobileFrontend || Note that, if you register on Wikipedia and stay logged in, you can select a responsive skin in your preferences (like monobook or Timeless) and that may be enough to solve your problem. – Nemo Dec 3 '18 at 9:37
