Description T. H. Kelly (Pink&) 2013-02-19 00:51:14 UTC
When you try to edit an item that's been protected, you still see the "edit"/"add" buttons and have the ability to type in the text fields. While the "save" button is initially greyed out, once you start typing, it turns blue again. It's only when you try to save the change that you get the message saying the page has been protected. Seems to me it would be better to have all of the buttons just not appear, like when you're viewing an old revision, and to have the notice about the page being protected pop up in a bubble, like the one that tells you if you're editing logged out.

What kind of browser do you use? Is it possible to edit only parts of the page? Is the text boxes grayed out?

I use Google Chrome, version 23.0.1271.111, on an Alex series Chromebook.

Well... strangely enough, when I went to check your question, I found that the buttons were in fact all greyed out. Maybe something changed in all the updates yesterday? It's much better right now. I'd mark this as resolved, but, while we're on the topic, I notice that the text says "You are blocked from editing", when it should say that the page is protected. Try editing from a non-admin account to see what I mean. (Or while logged out.)

Yes, its about the same I found and I think there is a merged changeset that made the links stay disabled.

The blocked message is a bug and should be fixed.

Just pinging to see where we are on this. All that needs to be changed is for a new message to show up on the tooltip instead of [[d:MediaWiki:Wikibase-blockeduser-tooltip-message]].

The code in this commit seems to wrongly assume that the only time blockItemActions is called would be when the user is blocked, but it also seems that this is also called when the page is protected.
