Description Mark Clements (HappyDog) 2006-12-18 19:17:39 UTC
If you use the + button to add a new comment (with title) to a blank page, MW
inserts a blank line above your posting, leaving an odd gap at the top of the page.

I don't know if this also affects adding a message to a page that doesn't exist,
or whether it only affects blanked pages.

The code should test whether the page is blank, and only add the newline if it
is not.

Wow - super quick!  Are you in the mood for another real-quick fix?  If so,
check out bug 8051... :)

Can't touch that, sorry. I'm just a lowly code monkey.
