Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-01-17 09:36:29 UTC
Hallo!

The url's used here are mentioned at
Bug 4637: MediaWiki:Charset.js for special character menu options

Please note that
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Charset.js&diff=35495451&oldid=35293962
offers a valuable result but
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Charset.js&diff&oldid=35293962
fails with
The database did not find the text of a page that it should have found, named
"Charset.js (Diff: 35293962, 0)". ...

Please note also that similar "hacked" links provide valuable results if the
oldid is a revidion of "title". See:
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Main_Page&diff&oldid=33475905

There beside "&diff" you may use also "&diff=curr", "&diff=cur", "&diff=foo"
etc. See:
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Main_Page&diff=foo&oldid=33475905


*request*
Please enhance diff to allow comparision of a curent revision of a page
(specified in "title=") with an old revision from another page.

*notes*
Comparision of two revisions belonging to different pages is possible already
*if* both revisions are specified. See:
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Charset.js&diff=35495451&oldid=35293962

That undocumented feature needs some improuvements. See
Bug 2455: correct navigation links for diffs between two different pages
and
Bug 3957: restructure the code to evaluate ?title=foo&oldid=nnnn ; allow
?oldid=nnnn without title

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

P.S. About other errors at the url of this bug see also
Bug 4638: Error condition generates wrong tabs links pointing to {{PAGENAME}} in
the main namespace and not to {{FULLPAGENAME}}

Changing to INVALID. The correct url would be:
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Charset.js&diff&oldid=35293962

Sorry for this bug.

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]
