Confirmation box before removing a publisher
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Newsletter extension helps users to - create newsletters, create issues for those newsletters, make other users publishers of the newsletters and many other related activities. One of the special pages which delivers these functionalities is Special:ManageNewsletter wherein you can remove a publisher of a newsletter. On clicking the 'Remove' button you remove a publisher of the newsletter if you have the right for it. This task requires you to add a confirmation box when the remove button is clicked asking the user who is removing the publisher whether he/she is certain of the removal (just like the dialogue boxes you get when you close the browser when mulitple tabs are open).


  1. Install Mediawiki (
  2. Install Newsletter extension (

  4. Click the remove button in the table and see how a publisher is removed right away without giving a second chance to the user to rethink the decision.
