Description Paolo Liberatore 2008-02-22 15:57:25 UTC
In some cases, one may want to enter an edit summary with a redlink, but this is more often the result of a mistake. Since edit summaries cannot be fixed at a later moment, I believe it would be nice to have (as a user preference) an option of being requested confirmation when entering an edit with a summary containing a redlink. This would be similar to the "null summary" check, so that the user could stilll decide to commit the edit anyway.

Is this basically a request for "templates and links in summaries should be rendered on editing" (hence parsed), as a first step required to warn on redlinks? In that case, this would depend on bug 5019 I guess?
