Description Seth Frey 2006-12-06 18:03:48 UTC
I added a line to autosubmit forms on the editpage (part of my hack for
automated page creation).  I called it 'EndOfEditForm' and put it 'around' line
1200 of EditPage.php between the closing brace and 
             $wgOut->addHTML( "</form>\n" );  

to end up like this:

$wgOut->addHTML( "</form>\n" );    

This is my first bug report, and first big coding project, so if there is any
more standard format I should follow (The essay was more about higher level
concerns, like not being dumb) don't hesitate to let me know.

I read "hack for automated page creation", and I'm wondering whether or not the
right approach was used in the first place. Nevertheless,

1. Please submit patches as unified diffs against the latest code in Subversion,
attached to the relevant bug report
2. There are some notes on coding conventions in docs/design.txt
3. The hook would be more useful to other developers if it passed the edit form
object, or at least some extra information, to hook functions

Comment 3 Rob Church 2006-12-23 13:15:58 UTC
Point 3 was not addressed, so I'm closing this one for later - without extra
information, most hooks aren't useful.

Implemented with EditFormInitialText and friends now. If something else is needed, please open another feature request.
