Description Mike Lindeen 2005-12-25 22:16:09 UTC
Apparently, on semi protected articles, "edit this page" is available but you
cannot edit by section. In other words, the "edit" button at the beginning of
each section does not exist. Please fix. Thanks.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2005-12-25 23:10:20 UTC
Is this a cosmetic issue, i.e. the section editing link is hidden, or is it a
functional issue, i.e. index.php?title=foo&action=edit&section=n doesn't work?
Comment 2 Mike Lindeen 2005-12-26 00:20:34 UTC
It's cosmetic. I tried the direct links and they work. Still. Needs to be fixed. 
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-12-26 07:08:51 UTC
1) Provide URLs to particular pages
2) Describe what type of accounts you are testing with (sysop, old, new, anon)
3) Does ?action=purge clear it up?
Comment 4 Mike Lindeen 2005-12-26 15:38:10 UTC
It's basically all semi protected articles.,, are just a few. As far as who I tired it
with. Well, it's not going to apply to anons and new users (and yes I tested it)
because they can't edit semi protected pages. I used purge and yes it cleared it
up. Thanks. 
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2005-12-28 15:17:03 UTC
Looks like it's all protected pages, not just semi-protected ones. Semi-protected pages probably change more often, making it more visible. Fix is probably to change ParserCache.php to add $title->userCanEdit() or such into the hash key, so it saves different versions for those who can and those who can't edit.
Comment 6 Brion Vibber 2005-12-28 22:37:46 UTC
Done on HEAD, should work now. Do a purge on any already-affected pages.
