Description Ryan Schmidt 2008-02-03 23:16:36 UTC
Can you add a hook to the function getEditButtons in /includes/EditPage.php (immediately before the return $buttons; line). Not sure what to call it, perhaps "modifyEditButtons" or something? It would allow for the modification of the array $buttons, which contains the edit buttons Save, Preview, Live, and Diff.

Anyway, the implementation of such a hook would allow for numerous extensions to add their own features to the row of buttons or even change appearances/functionality of existing ones (for example, forcing anonymous users to preview before saving).

I'm too lazy to write up a patch for the addition of a single line, so here's the change :P

/includes/EditPage.php line 1964-1965
>return $buttons;
change to
>wfRunHooks('modifyEditButtons', array(&$buttons));
>return $buttons;
