BUG MIGRATED FROM SOURCEFORGE
Originally submitted by Zoran Obradovic (zocky) 2004-07-12 17:02
The autogenerated edit comments for sections should
show as links to edited sections in Recent Changes,
watchlists and such.
Maybe leave the current /* */ syntax should still grey
the text and a more obvious #section or ==section==
syntax should be displayed as links.
*** Bug 46 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This could only be done using a link separate from the comment itself, since
section titles themselves may contain links (particularly important on pages
like Featured Article Candidates, VfD etc.). Also, these links are likely to
break after a while.
Why does it matter if a link breaks?
You're probably right that it doesn't matter much. I'm willing to hack this in
if you tell me how we should format the links. As I explained, we can't just
take the section heading and linkify that, because that might contain important
links itself. So we could use an icon or some text sequence next to the text to
link to the section. What do you suggest?
IMO it should be an icon or a single character. A hash # at the very left of the
edit comment would probably suffice.
This is now implemented in CVS. I used → as a default character for the
section link, but it can be changed through MediaWiki:sectionlink.
