Description Gurch 2010-04-24 10:23:34 UTC
If a user adds one or more URLs pointing to internal pages within the wiki itself, they are forced to solve a captcha before they can submit the edit. 

However, adding such URLs in external link format is necessary in order to link to diffs, older revisions and so forth, as MediaWiki lacks any functionality for doing so by other means. This makes makes participating in discussions where such links frequently need to be created very frustrating for affected users.

The extension should ignore URLs that point to pages within the wiki.

FYI: You can link to old revisions by using e.g. [[Special:PermaLink/12345]].
