Description Jamie Hari 2007-10-05 05:07:53 UTC
BACKGROUND:

The Marvel Database is a wiki about comics and a feature we would be interested in would be a link which adds comics to a users 'wishlist' or 'collection'.

I envisioned implementing this in ootb mediawiki by having a link to a sub-page of the user page which would store their wishlist.

http://en.marveldatabase.com/User:Jamie/Wishlist

This page can successfully be reached by instead typing in the URL:

http://en.marveldatabase.com/Special:Mypage/Wishlist

This gives the dynamic nature of the link, so the link is on the comic and responds accordingly, no matter which user hits the link. (Jamie, Rob, or Brion. ;)

To account for PEBKAC, I would like to have that link preload a template, display an edit intro message and be loaded as a 'new section'. This leaves little room for user error as the work is all done for them, they just have to hit 'save'.

I can pretty much accomplish what I have outlined above, using the following URL:


DESIRED EFFECT:

http://en.marveldatabase.com/?title=User:Jamie/test&action=edit&section=new&preload=Template:Gallery%20Template&editintro=MediaWiki:AddCharacterMessage


THE BUG:

http://en.marveldatabase.com/?title=Special:Mypage/test&action=edit&section=new&preload=Template:Gallery%20Template&editintro=MediaWiki:AddCharacterMessage

Replacing title=User:Jamie/test with title=Special:Mypage/test kills all the parameters that follow it.


SUMMARY:

Including title=Special:Mypage or title=Special:Mytalk should allow all the same paramters as if the URL were explicitly defined.
Comment 1 Jamie Hari 2007-11-01 04:59:43 UTC
http://en.marveldatabase.com/?title=Special:Random&action=edit

would be interesting, too.
Comment 2 Jamie Hari 2008-05-04 17:38:16 UTC
(Changing severity to 'enhancement' and updating version to latest.)


After testing the above links, it seems like the new/current behaviour is that in the above scenarios 'Special:Mypage' and 'Special:Random' are somehow being defaulted back to 'Main Page'.

How would that happen? Is that intended behaviour?
Comment 3 db [inactive,noenotif] 2011-08-19 19:31:51 UTC
At the moment the following parameter are kept, when the page is redirects:

* action
* preload
* editintro
* section
* oldid
* diff
* dir

If you are missing a parameter, please open a new bug. Thanks.
