"Title for new section" part of bug fixed (861 bytes, patch)

Description FT2 2008-06-23 12:21:28 UTC
Could benefit from a parameter to pre-load a given default into the section title/edit summary. At present this is always blank.

A more serious problem is that the title, and main text, to be pre-loaded may differ depending whether "type=comment" finds the page exists or not. A lot of pages have the format "header followed by repeated standard sections". So if the "type=comment" finds the page doesn't exist, it may need to preload a template including the header and a title saying "creating page for X". if it does exist then it would preload a template without the template and a title saying "adding section for X". 

Ideally:

title = <text> ; sets the default text which will be preloaded into the title/edit summary input box.

and also for type=comment:

title_newpage = <text>
default_newpage = <wikipage>

to allow preloading of different defaults if the page doesn't exist. (Ignored for other types)
Comment 1 FT2 2008-06-23 12:23:28 UTC
(Should be easy, it's just "preloaded text" parameters, as already exists)

According to this if the user enters a page which doesn't exist we must allow him to create that page with header saying "creating page for X"..but below you want to have default page and deafault title if user enters a page which doesnt exist.

Vivek, please see the comments at https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/4433/ and respond.  You have trailing whitespace.
Comment 8 Bagariavivek 2012-05-25 09:03:57 UTC
I had submitted a new gerrit patch - https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/4434/. It was abandoned.
Comment 9 Sumana Harihareswara 2012-05-25 09:07:38 UTC
Vivek, yes, Reedy abandoned it because he thought it was a duplicate of changeset 4433.  Please instead revise and resubmit ("amend") 4433 to get rid of the whitespace.  If you cannot figure out how to do that, please abandon changeset 4433 yourself and resubmit it as a new changeset.
