Description Rémi Kaupp 2006-12-02 11:49:11 UTC
Following an idea from Pierre Vigué on fr.wikipedia, it was suggested to have
the preview activated automatically before saving for anonymous users and new
users. This could be done either by hiding the "save" button first (forcing
these users to preview, then the "save" button shows up), or by forcing the
preview the first time the "save" button is pressed.

It was suggested in order to slow down vandalism and avoid typical beginners'
mistakes, without any harm for regular users. It received 100% approbation on
the village pump, see
http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipédia:Le_Bistro/1_décembre_2006#Prévisualisation

Just wondering if this could be done easily by the devs or if we need to do some
hack with the monobook.js. Thanks.

There are discussions on Swedish Wikipedia
(here:http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Bybrunnen#P.C3.A5tvingad_f.C3.B6rhandsgranskning)
as well to implement this functionality. Comments are welcome.

Done months ago with a js hack. If you suggest it as a general feature for MediaWiki please open a new bug under product:MediaWiki. Thanks.
