Description Melancholie 2008-07-03 17:32:41 UTC
With http://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&titles=1|2|...|50 there is a limit of 50 titles, but the documentation does not mention this (quote: "titles         - A *list of titles* to work on").

BTW: Is there a limit for http://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=parse&text={{Project:Sandbox}}...{{}}...{{:Main_Page}} too?

Actually, the limit doesn't just apply to titles, but to all multivalue parameters: 50 for regular users and 500 for sysops/bots. I'm not really sure where to document *that*.

Implement permission info for API

This patch adds a new "Permissions" area to the API's help page output. So far, the only two rights that are API-specific are 'apihighlimits' and 'writeapi'. Nabbed the descriptions from the English lang files.
