Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2007-11-24 01:29:59 UTC
Dear friends,

Brion has created some time ago
which is used to select the directionality in « textarea forms » .

It is part of

and facilitates both BiDi editing as at

The code there is:
<textarea tabindex='1' accesskey="," name="wpTextbox1" id="wpTextbox1" rows='20'
cols='80' >

and « show source » due to the fix of
bug 005611 · 'name=xxx' for the 'textarea' when viewing the source of a protected page

Enhancement request:

Please add « id="wpTextbox1" » also at « [[special:Emailuser/Foo]] ».

At this moment the code generated there is:
<textarea name="wpText" rows='20' cols='80' wrap='virtual' style="width: 100%;"></textarea>

Thanks for your efforts in advance.

Best regards Reinhardt [[user:Gangleri]]

Thanks Raimond for the patch. It seams that this patch is not live.

REOPENing and adding keyword « shell » .
Comment 4 Danny B. 2008-02-16 12:49:53 UTC
1) This is not shell issue, please don't add this keyword.

2) The id="wpText" has been added instead to keep the compatibility, see r27869.

Dearr Danny;

The enhancement request said clearly :

 add « id="wpTextbox1" » to the « textarea » at « [[special:Emailuser/Foo]] »

« id="wpTextbox1" » triggers
[[commons:MediaWiki:Gadget-BiDiEditing.js]] [[meta:MediaWiki:Gadget-BiDiEditing.js]] at [[incubator:]], [[wm2008:]], beta.wikiversity and copies at wikis either being st to RTL or supporting both LTR and RTL scripts as:
w: ar:, arc:, dv:, fa:, ha:, he:, ks:, ku:, lad:, pa:, ps:, sd:, ps:, tk:, ug:, ur:, yi:
and their sister projects.

The gadget is working already for editing pages or sections, viewing protected sources and should be available for the other three actions mentioned at

Please take all this into considertations.

Best regards Reinhardt [[user:Gangleri]]
