Description Umherirrender 2012-01-27 16:11:07 UTC
Under 1.17 was it possible for anon to do a purge as POST without getting a form.

It is possible to get this back? The API allows this.

The 1.17 code has a $wgRequest->wasPosted() [1], but that is lost under 1.18 and only the user right 'purge' is used to make the difference [2].

marking as deployment blocker since this is apparently a regression that was in 1.18.  Also, need a test for this if it is fixed to keep it from happening again.
Comment 2 Rob Lanphier 2012-01-30 22:57:15 UTC
Aaron has an idea for how to fix this.  Seems to have been introduced with r86041
Comment 3 Aaron Schulz 2012-01-30 23:44:50 UTC
Fixed in r110342.
