Description Daniel Gravenor 2005-12-30 01:15:53 UTC
There seems to be a trend towards AJAX support.  I am wondering if there will be
more support to edit pages, with the goals being to make it easier to edit, and
to decrease the amount of page reloads required?

I am sorry if this is submitted to the wrong place - there is not great
documentation on how to submit feature requests.

Would greatly like this feature.

I definitely agree. I had a WikiProject once, but the interface was so hard that
I stopped using it. My idea (posted elsewhere) is as follows:

All you'd have to do to edit is highlight a section, click Cntrl-X-Q or
something like that, and your selection turns into a WHYSIWYG edit box within
the rest of the page! Just put the command toolbox on teh side and have it
scroll up and down with the page. When you are done, click the Edit button on
the toolbox, and it switches back to normal without reloading!

Sorry. Right one. (Sigh)

I would like to see this, too. It would be nice, also, to have the JavaScript code involved contain hooks where user JS code could detect when AJAX editing begins and alter/replace the edit box (to allow for tools such as wikEd on enwiki). It would certainly make section editing easier. And having the + tab on talk pages do an AJAX edit at the bottom would be very handy.

Some Etherpad-like functionality would be nice.

This is essentially what LiquidThreads currently does for talk pages. For example, try clicking "Add topic" at this page:

and which can be tested at the page
