Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-02-09 20:34:22 UTC

Section links in "Preview" generate links as
{{fullurl:{{NAMESPACE}}:{{PAGENAME}}|action=submit#section}} .

Personaly I can not see many benefits of such links. Original changes are not
"preserved" when clicking to such a link. It should be clear to everybody that a
section link is *not* the edit link.

I assume that it would not be inconsistent to render a section link 'foo' at
page 'bar' in "Preview" as [[bar#foo]].

Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-02-09 21:16:54 UTC
looking at "View" | "Page source" in
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv: Gecko/20060111

at the TOC I found
<li class='toclevel-2'><a href="#New_Proposal_-_Artist_of_the_Month"><span
class="tocnumber">2.1</span> <span class="toctext">New Proposal - Artist of the
in the body I found
<p><a name="New_Proposal_-_Artist_of_the_Month"

This is very helpfull for "view" and "purge". At "action=submit"
they generate (for me)

I was asking if they should generate

(In reply to comment #2)

I assume it would be more helpfull to generate links to rendered rections and
*not* "edit" links"
REOPENing the request.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2006-02-14 20:34:16 UTC
It's an on-page link. It has no "edit" action in it.
Please stop reopening these things.
