Description Hendrik Brummermann 2005-07-13 05:25:24 UTC

Wikipedia uses a Java Script to prevent it being put in a frame set. The
interwiki link checker, however, is a very useful tool, which creates an
interwiki diff using frames. There should be an Referer:-based exception for
urls starting with ""
Comment 1 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-07-13 20:02:26 UTC
Implemented a hack on live site for this.
Comment 2 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-07-13 20:10:17 UTC
Removing the crosswiki keyword.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-09-10 10:01:45 UTC
The hack on the site has left our frame-breaker completely inoperable for over a
month, as you cannot read the document.location value from another site's window
-- it causes an exception and the whole thing fails.

The hack has been removed.
Comment 4 Dirk O. Brückner 2006-01-31 14:03:46 UTC
I moved to the url

I wrote a little hack. Now user can use the tool with and without JS.
