We need to disable or at least favor the source editor even on mobile for the mobile mode of All The Tropes, there seems to be no option in the wiki management to toggle this, configurations for that are noted here:

Event Timeline

Hi,

I would like to start by apologizing on the project's behalf that your task was not resolved within a reasonable time. The community has now decided via RfC to merge with WikiTide and former volunteers will be returning and new ones will likely join. An event such as this one is unlikely to occur again.

Since your task has been opened for a long time, please let us know if (1) you still need it to be done or (2) if it's a bug: if it's still occurring.

Yes, we would still like this issue fixed. Thank you for responding.

If I understand correctly, you'd want to set wgMFUsePreferredEditor to true so that it uses the user's preferred editor?

We need source editing to be the default. Visual Editor causes issues with some for the formatting we require in the main namespace and we need source to be the default for that namespace on all skins.Elsewhere like talk pages Visual Editor is no problem.

Unless I'm mistaken, as you also pointed out above, there doesn't seem to be a configuration setting to be able to do this in MinervaNeue

Restricted Repository Identity added a commit: R9:674621d8e066: T11332: Add $wgMFDefaultEditor to ManageWiki (#5422).

This setting will appear in ManageWiki shortly.
