Wikimedia Bugzilla is closed!

Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

Description Alex Nordstrom 2007-01-19 15:06:56 UTC
When the database is write-protected, there is no indication given to the
administrator that blocking will fail and indeed does fail.

The blocking page should show a disabled version much like the page editing view
does when the database is locked. Furthermore, the message stating that the user
was blocked should produce an error message if the block failed because the
database was locked (because the lock could be imposed between displaying the
blocking page and submitting it).

Added standard checks in r19479.
