Description Daniel Friesen 2008-04-07 07:41:15 UTC
This is a tracking bug for bugs which depend on the proposed and in development title rewrite.

The proposed changes/ideas as a extremely shortened list:
* Pair the page_title with a page_real so that something like [[_main_Page]] has "_main_Page" stored and used for display instead of "Main Page". While these two pages still do mean the same thing.
** This is accompanied by a user name rewrite as it is required to prevent major bugs caused by the new output of getText();
* Do all normalization of titles inside of a special TitleNormalizer class, and break it up to allow for extension of the normalizer to alter steps and change the way titles are normalized.
* Convert the DISPLAYTITLE hack into a special extra class system. One which is not a big hack and allows for extension of a Display Title by extensions as well as extension of the DISPLAYTITLE parser function itself.
