Description Licsak 2006-08-21 16:41:26 UTC
If I try to modify own user page at (ja)Wikipedia, on logged-in, using Firefox / Internet Explorer 6.0 sp2, Mediawiki backs 'index.php' file.

[Contents of "index.php"]
Type=Edit text
Special namespace=特別



is editing page to be expectedon logged user.)

But anonymous users CAN modify my user page!

Same behavior occured when I try to edit the article don't have any contents. 
Its behavior will not see anonymous users, (i.e. all users not logged in)
and anonymous user can be edit unprotected pages.

1. Go to Special:Preferences
2. Select the "Editing" tab
3. Uncheck "use an external editor"
Comment 2 Licsak 2006-08-24 16:48:53 UTC
I could not find "Special:Preferences" is located on /Mediawiki/ because I'm
using i18n-ed Mediawiki.

This solution should be added the location to go.
