Description Brion Vibber 2005-07-13 06:26:20 UTC
The Creative Commons license selection option in the installer kind of sucks 
right now: it requires going off-page and returns you with an incomplete form, 
minus any other fields you'd filled out.

Being able to work in-place would be a usability improvement.

There's a GPL-licensed CC selection plugin for WordPress which has recently 
been updated with AJAX-style goodies in the selection; it may be worth reusing 
that code or at least examining it: http://yergler.net/projects/wplicense

Comment 3 Mike Linksvayer 2006-07-25 18:18:22 UTC
The patch and new file attached do not "ajaxify" license selection but they do
fix the problem of overwriting previously entered form values using a tiny bit
of javascript.

Tim, I'm gonna stick this one on your plate as some installer cleanup. Especially since we're now more actively pushing the CC licenses from using them on Wikipedia, we want the selection to work smoothly from the installer. :)

Updated summary.
Comment 7 Tim Starling 2009-07-02 05:04:10 UTC
I think I fixed this already in the new installer. Shall I just mark this fixed once that branch is merged?
Comment 8 Chad H. 2010-09-01 17:50:58 UTC
Still some issues with the CC license picker, but the original issue is fixed.
Comment 9 Krinkle 2012-12-16 17:19:43 UTC
Removing block for bug 14123. This bug is not related to the AJAX interface, it just uses jQuery.ajax and/or MediaWiki API.
