Add GET parameter prelad for EditPage (4.19 KB, patch)
2006-08-20 11:25 UTC, Carl Duisberg
Details

Description Carl Duisberg 2006-08-20 11:23:37 UTC
In Mediawiki 1.7.1 when editing a new page an existing text can be preloaded by
using the GET parameter preload

Example:
http://www.wikia.com/index.php?title=Forum:Just_A_Test&action=edit&section=&preload=Template:Forumheader/Help%20desk&editintro=

The GET parameter preload is not respected in mediawiki 1.5.8.

The following patch solves the problem.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2006-08-20 11:24:53 UTC
1.5 is an old and unmaintained version, and thus does not contain newer features.

Add GET parameter prelad for EditPage

With the patch when opening a page for editing the GET parameter preload
specifies with which page text to preload the edit box.

Applicable only to Mediawiki 1.5

Unfortuately many webspace providers have not upgraded to PHP 5.0.

Use 1.6.x in this case.(In reply to comment #3)

1.6 does not offer preload either. EditPage.php will need same type of patch.
