Description Omegatron 2007-08-10 03:03:32 UTC
Currently it links to the login page.  Why force users to click a second time?  Include the login form on the same "Not logged in" page.

Seems like an even better idea to me.
Comment 4 Alexandre Emsenhuber [IAlex] 2009-09-25 07:53:06 UTC
Resolving this as WONTFIX for the same reason as bug 15320: this is againt making the login form available (only) from a secure location.
Comment 5 Scott Martin ( 2014-07-15 13:23:48 UTC
Can this be looked at again now that we've been HTTPS only for some time?
Comment 6 Scott Martin ( 2014-07-15 13:24:49 UTC
Apologies - that's a Wikipedia-specific question.

Not really. This feature could be only available on wiki sites that are HTTPS-only for logged in usage, which is an increasingly large percentage of the web.
Comment 8 Scott Martin ( 2014-07-16 21:09:41 UTC
Ah, sure - I wasn't conversant with whether that was a MediaWiki built-in option that this would have to interface with somehow, or a WMF-local server setting of some sort.

Either way, it turns out that this bug is in the process of being fixed - I'm going to mark this as a duplicate of bug 15484 (even though this one was filed a year earlier) as there's patch action happening over there.
