Description billinghurst 2012-04-16 14:23:01 UTC
Would it please be possible to have the account name added to the section "Global user info" (centralauth-admin-info), non-wikilinked, so that a search result clearly identifies the username whose data has been called up.  At the moment the only identification of the account name is from the data field, which can be changed, all other links on the page point to a range of pages, non-explicitly stating the name of the user.
Comment 1 Sam Reed (reedy) 2012-04-17 16:50:48 UTC
As in:

Global user info
User ID: 1555
Registered: 22:35, 30 March 2008 (4 years ago)
Home wiki:
Total editcount: 34,489
Locked: no
Hidden level: no

on ?
Comment 2 billinghurst 2012-10-30 09:51:27 UTC
Yes, adding a username into that section would be terrific.
Comment 3 Peter Gehres 2013-03-04 21:54:57 UTC
Comment 4 Marius Hoch 2013-03-05 19:09:13 UTC
Change merged
Comment 5 billinghurst 2013-03-10 21:40:09 UTC
Thanks, it works! :-)

There is no default label text for "MediaWiki:Centralauth-admin-info-username"   I have created this locally [[m:MediaWiki:Centralauth-admin-info-username]] and inserted "Username:" and would recommend that in lieu of better suggestions.
Comment 6 Peter Gehres 2013-03-10 22:07:30 UTC
Looks like it was deployed without rebuilding the message cache. Reedy is taking care of that.
Comment 7 Marius Hoch 2013-03-10 22:10:02 UTC
That was a temporary l18n cache problem on the production cluster caused by the fact we deployed this earlier then originally planned.
