<inputbox> is a great achivement.
a) However it might be usefull to provide the ability to *insert predefined
titles* (for the articles to be created. Each wiki could decide (on each
occurence) if it would start with sandbox, a timestamp or what prefix / sufix
would be best related to the location of <inputbox> on a particular page.
Practice will show how usefull this would be.
b) Another issue I am not aware is if there is an alternative to place the
"header" *between* the input box and the button and
c) to have *another button label* then the one specified in
Why to ask for this enhancement:
Wiki software should be intuitive and flexible without many "you just have to
know" - "you need to follow the procedure step by step". Do not believe that all
visitors read every bit of a page. At the beginning I pressed the button myself
*without* inserintg any title leading to edit (the protected) [[Main Page]]. I
assume that these additions would help to avoid similar situations.
Thanks in advance! Best regards [[user:gangleri]]
P.S. I am not quite shure if <inputbox> is an extension of not. If so please
change the Product: to MediaWiki extensions , if necessary create one.
shows also bug 2788 and bug 2286
* added main URL http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Inputbox
(perhaps to be set into the URL field of this bugzilla ?)
* changed Product code to "MediaWiki extensions"
Gangleri, please file separate bugs for separate enhancement requests, thanks.
<inputbox> now supports a default= parameter to set the preferred default title.
- bug 2847: "<inoutbox> usage of template constructs to generate the "default"
- bug 2842: "<inputbox> should allow alternatively to place the header *between*
the inputbox and the button not only above the inputbox"
- bug 2844: "<inputbox> should allow allow to label a button differently then
changed title: <inputbox> should allow to set predefined titles
