Preload does not work correctly on mobile view
Open, LowPublic


Text preloaded with &preload= when editing a page in desktop view is not preloaded when using the mobile view.
Other url query parameters as &preloadtitle= and &editintro= are also ignored.

Compare desktop and mobile views of the same edit page with preload message. The only difference is .m added to the url.

Using Extension:Inputbox does not help.

Hello. I request this be re-triaged. It's been 2.5 years. And it breaks more than Wikinews. For example, it makes it impossible for mobile users (remember some people *don't* have a non-mobile device) to request hardware in [[m:Hardware donation program]].

(Also, it's not just on the Visual Editor. It doesn't work with wikitext editing either, on mobile.)

Six months on, I again request that this be re-triaged. Perhaps some volunteer devs could be steered to consider fixing this?

This appears to have been fixed somewhen. Not sure if there's any other issue though.
