Description Amir E. Aharoni 2011-04-28 19:01:23 UTC
If a user attempts to move a page to the same title, he sees the error message selfmove (Source and destination titles are the same; cannot move a page over itself.). This can be avoided by disabling (graying out) the "Move page" button until a different name is entered.

* disable on load from JS (not from PHP, to avoid non-JS viewers from being unable to move)
* on key touch if not empty, enable, id empty, disable.

Will do soon.

Do we /ever/ disable buttons in JS? I don't think so, the save page button isn't grayed out if the page hasn't been edited, for example, so why is this a special case? If the user submits invalid input, they get an error message, I don't see what the problem is. Marking as an enhancement, because it is, but I'm not sure whether it makes sense to start disabling buttons.
