Description T. Gries 2005-07-10 16:39:15 UTC
Only a cosmetic bug, very old, allow my to try to explain this small cosmetic

On top of the main User preference page we have two input fields, which are
correctly referenced (numbered) for the two foot notes, if and only if
$wgAllowRealName equals true:

Real Name(1)
1 Real name = .. (prefs-help-realname)
2 Email = .. (prefs-help-email)

However, and this is the cosmetic problem, if $wgAllowRealName is setr to
_false_, then the fields Real Name(1) and (prefs-help-realname) are suppressed
(= okay), but the numbering for the (now only) fields

Email(sup2) and (prefs-help-email) are wrong: "2"

Should be "1" in this special case.

Changes in both Language.php and SpecialPreferences.php are likely needed.

Confirmed in HEAD.
The fix is trivial although it need editing a lot of language files :/
Comment 2 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-07-14 03:26:04 UTC
Fixed by removing 1 & 2 and replacing by *
