I propose that sysops be allowed to "enable html" on a per-page basis. This
could be stored as a property in cur_rights, or in a separate table. When
enabled, it would eliminate the limits to the HTML code which can be used. The
selected pages. For instance, we could put a "Donate" form on the Main Page. In
order to prevent accidental mischief, the "enable html" option could only be
available on protected pages.
(I may do this myself, I'm entering it here in case anyone else wants to code it
and to get feedback.)
"Allowing HTML would require development work, which Brion did during the
meeting and checked in to CVS head the next morning. ... HTML will be used only
There is in 1.4 an option for enabling full HTML site-wide. This is very dangerous on an open site and should only be used for
Doing per-page HTML mode safely is possible, but be very very careful. I would not recommend going this route though, as it's
generally un-wiki; all pages should have the same abilities.
Bumping priority as the Wikimedia folks want it.
You bumped the priority on this one a while ago and I thought I heard something
about 1.6 having a similar feature/functionality.
Could you look into this again?
1.6 doesn't have this. We seem to have dealt with the fundraising form issue separately, so
we probably won't want this at all.
Going to resolve as LATER, on the off chance we need to resurrect the idea.
Any chance of resurrecting this idea... or at least discussing its merits, now that we are almost 4 years down the line?
Something like the Widgets extension would probably be ideal for the sort of "and here insert a donate button" case.
