WikitextEditor overrides the ordinary translation mechanism
Closed, DuplicatePublic


The page m:Coockie statement has been translated into Norwegian Bokmål, and as a translation it should only be maintained through the translation tools. After enabling WikitextEditor (beta feature) on Meta I discovered that I could edit the page without going through the translation tools. This seems to me to be an error.

Page with the translate tools clearly enabled

With WikitextEditor I'm able to edit the page

Note that I have not tried to save edited wikitext, as this might create additional problems. The page is about to be proofread by other users.

Setting this as high as users accidently might mess up previous translations.
