Description Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-03-18 19:06:37 UTC
This is a feature request for an additional user preference which if enabled
would add an additional textbox to be displayed during editing where regular
expressions to be run on the main input textbox could be performed.

This would be very useful for mass text editing describeable by a patter.

You can do this with a javascript: URL, like this
Comment 2 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-03-27 19:35:12 UTC
You want to copy the text in your favorite editor and use regex
there. The editing box is not meant to emulate emacs / vim :o)
Comment 3 Niklas Laxström 2005-08-19 21:21:11 UTC
This can be achieved without changes to Mediawiki using Javascript to create
needed components. Marking as WONTFIX.
