Rename Special:FundraiserLandingpage to Special:LandingPage
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points


I would like to use Extension:FundraiserLandingPage on a campaign wiki (See: TBC)

However the name for the Special Page isn't appropriate for non-fundraising uses.

I would like to propose that the title for the special page is changed to Special:LandingPage or alternately that it is added as some sort of alternate title

The former would cause a degree of disruption, mainly for email I would image so we would need to assess what such a change would result in.

[mediawiki/extensions/FundraiserLandingPage@master] Primary name for special page is now LandingPage

Change 357883 merged by jenkins-bot:

We would need to update URLs in email, yes, but that's just a one-time
inconvenience. Give us a few days' lead time before emails need to go out
and we can make sure we stay up-to-date.

Can we keep 'FundraiserLandingPage' around as an alias indefinitely? Breaking old links would be a bad idea.

Yep, it'll definitely stay around as an alias! I'm not planning to get rid of the existing name.
