Description Dan Jacobson 2008-11-30 01:19:28 UTC
On action=edit in text browsers (no CSS) we see
   Anti-spam check. Do NOT fill this in! [                    ]

Couldn't this just appear as
         []
and only if we clicked into it would we see
"Anti-spam check. Do NOT fill this in!"

I.e., employ some width parameter for the textbox hyperlink, etc.

How do you propose to hide the label until tab in a no-CSS, no-JS browser, exactly?
Comment 2 Dan Jacobson 2008-11-30 01:56:47 UTC
All I know is something built around
<textarea rows='1' cols='1'>_Anti-spam check. Do NOT fill this in!</textarea>
would look less obtrusive in text browsers. I suppose the TAB key will still find
it, else whatever spam program you are fighting wouldn't, defeating its purpose.

This is about the AntiBot extension, right?

I do not know.
Comment 5 Nemo 2012-08-24 06:29:55 UTC
Sorry, I meant [[mw:Extension:SimpleAntiSpam]]. No component for it.
Comment 6 TeleComNasSprVen 2014-05-14 12:03:27 UTC
This was merged into core, but is it still happening?

$ w3m -no-proxy -no-cookie -dump 'http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Sandbox&action=edit' | grep Anti
Anti-spam check. Do NOT fill this in![                    ]

Pinging Legoktm since he was the one who merged it into core and might be able to tell us where the code now lives.

But honestly though, the only solution I could think of is to simply add display:none, and that's a CSS class...

The code lives in EditPage.php. (see I185b6a1e232299f496244a23f4bf0dc6ea22b6c9)

The code already does that...
