Description Jelte (WebBoy) 2006-06-09 16:06:35 UTC
When using {{DISPLAYTITLE|xyz}}, <h1>Main Page</h1> becomes <h1>xyz</h1>, but
<title>Main Page - TestWiki</title> becomes <title></title>

Rewritten, please.  It's sorely needed.  

There are now javascript hacks in Common.js to implement the same functionality,
but it would be better if it were done in Mediawiki itself.

Patch to fix bug 6253

In this patch I:
* Removed parsing of the given title, since the title is always escaped.
* Hid the text "(Link to this page as $1)" when the given title equals the real
* Altered OutputPage::addParserOutputNoText() to set both $mPagetitle (<h1>)
and $mHTMLtitle (<title>) (actual fix)

Both OutputPage::$mPageLinkTitle and $this->data['displaytitle'] (MonoBook.php)
are not used before and after this patch and should probably be removed.

Fixed back in r23393.
