"Special:Log" should have a help link
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I propose to add a help link on the top-right corner of [[Special:Log]] (at all log types). I mean the same kind of help link that appears on revision history pages, "user contributions" pages, etc.

By default, The link should point to a relevant page on MediaWiki.org, and wikis should be able to modify the link target using MediaWiki:Log-helppage.

Where should it link to? If there's already a page, it should be good first task to do.

I'm pretty sure there is at least one page on MediaWiki.org about logs..

I'm really surprised to see that there is currently no specific page about logs on MediaWiki.org. I will write this page on MediaWiki.org soon, based on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Log. I will update here when it's done.

@Legoktm, @Aklapper, @matej_suchanek:

The help page is done:

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Log

Now it's possible to create a help link from the top-right corner of [[Special:Log]], pointing to this page on MediaWiki.org. Similarly to all help pages, wikis should be able to modify this target using [[MediaWiki:Log-helppage]].

Awesome, thank you very much! I've submitted a patch for it, and it'll be overridable using the 'log-helppage' message.

Thanks! :)

BTW, do you have the right to make the new help page on MediaWiki.org translatable (i.e. using the translation extension)?
