Is that so hard to implement? I mean't split "ignore templates, refs, link targets, and heading" into separate options, and improve "ignore images" to ignore "images target" not the whole image section

As a first step we have to call HideText and HideMoreText individually.

For now, how about just the ability to selectively add replacements to the edit summary? That seems like it would be the easiest to implement, and would be very useful to me. I often have intermediate, temporary replacements which should definitely ''not'' be in the edit summary, but other replacements which ''should''.

A workaround I use is to set up Find & Replace rules for replacements I want in the edit summary, and Advanced Find & Replace rules for replacements I don't want in the edit summary.

Please move the ignore options that are in the find and replace options (templates, wikilinks, external links, HTML comments, files, excreta) so that these rules can be applied on a per item basis, often I have find/replace that I want to do on external links, while others that I don't want on external or internal link. Having the ability to set these on a per item basis would make it easier.

:I've run into a need for this myself today. I have a rule that I don't want run on links/refs, but I don't want these ignore options applied to everything else. This is very frustrating as I want all my general cleanup F&R's in one settings file.
