Description Markus Krötzsch 2009-12-29 17:39:15 UTC
Since the recent update of Special:Ask, the "Hide query" option does not work any more. This is a major bug since it is a regression that impairs a very important use of Special:Ask: clicking on "further results" on a wiki page. Doing this should lead to a page that shows nothing but the requested results. Most users will be confused by the screen-filling form that now appears instead at the top of the special page.

I also suggest to make the new sub-form of parameter fields hidable independently. While not strictly related to this bug, taking this into account might affect the approach for fixing this bug.

This is now fixed in SVN.
