Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-06-19 11:01:58 UTC
Hallo!
http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Val_warning&diff=7555&oldid=1949
is a diff between revisions of *two* pages because oldis is not *949* but *1949*.

This (diffs between two different pages) is a very interesting feature I was
about to issue a feature request.

However as the diff behaves now the only indication is in the page title:
*MediaWiki:Val view version, MediaWiki:Val warning*

I would suggest that links to both titles should be above the revisions.
I could not understand how "← Previous diff"  and "Next diff →" would behave
(what they would generate.
A more clear indication that this is a diff between *two* pages would be usefull
too.
The error description at a diff with a deleted page is OK.

Hallo!

Please read first bug 3957
restructure the code to evaluate ?title=foo&oldid=nnnn ; allow ?oldid=nnnn
without title


http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Val_warning&diff=7555&oldid=1949
compares oldid 7555 and 1949 (belonging to *different* titles) and generates the
difference between these.


http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?title=Detelion_messages_testpage&diff=7556&oldid=1949
Revision as of 19:53, 25 April 2005
 is http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?title=User_talk:WikiSysop&oldid=1949
← Previous diff
 is
http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?title=Detelion_messages_testpage&diff=prev&oldid=1949
Here the titles *differ*

here a testcase with the deleted oldid=8682
http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Val_warning&diff=8682&oldid=1949

http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?title=missspellled_title&diff=7555&oldid=1949
shows has also a mismatch in the titles

If "title=foo" is removed
http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?diff=7555&oldid=1949
will show
← Previous diff
http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?title=Main_Page&diff=prev&oldid=1949
Next diff →
http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?title=Main_Page&diff=next&oldid=7555
Here Main_Page is used as title

At http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?&diff=7556&oldid=1949
"Current revision" is refered without an oldid and the link
to http://test.leuksman.com/view/Main_Page has *nothing* to do with the diff.

*request*
- Please allow to make diffs between oldid's from two titles also in the future.
This is a very usefull featrure.
- Some links need minor fix. It should be checked if the title mentioned in the
url is the "owner" of the oldid. This is not the case at
http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?title=Detelion_messages_testpage&diff=7556&oldid=1949
- add a MediaWiki message to notify if "title" is not the owner of any of the
verions

I could not comment this one:
http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?title=Detelion_messages_testpage&diff=prev&oldid=1949

Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2008-04-27 00:05:42 UTC
Changed example URL to one on Wikipedia which is functional.
Comment 4 Liangent 2012-12-01 17:49:04 UTC
Things are almost fixed now except that "Article" "Talk"  "Read" "Edit" ... links are only for one article.

Better to show it as a invocation of Special:ComparePages?
