Description Chris McKenna 2005-12-30 23:01:42 UTC
The rollback link next to an entry in your watchlist and in a contributions list
for a page move should rollback the page move. Currently the rollback link has
no effect as it just attempts to rollback the null edit. To rollback the page
move you have to use the link from the page move log. 

This will make the behaviour inline with what you expect a rollback button to do
- rollback the change.

(see also bug #3185 that I guess may be easy to fix at the same time as this one)

Those move entries are actually just dummy edits, so (revert) links could not be
made for them.
Comment 2 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-05-10 17:04:21 UTC
Of course they can.  They'd just have to be implemented differently, which may
or may not be tricky.

Well yeah, you can always do schema changes. But that goes without saying :)

hopefully a better summary

We seriously need a true rollback function for page moves. We have vandals who do nothing but move pages because they know it's such a pain in the ass for admins to undo that (and because ONLY admins can, if undoing the move requires deletion of a redirect). Ideally, some rollback function for pagemoves should exist that simply puts things back the way they were before the vandal made his move.

Well, we have revert links on the page move log, so I'm not clear how it is significantly different to have the rollback link do the same thing in the various locations is appears.

Fix it or remove the link. It's confusing :/
