Create an early hook "BeforeInitialize" in initialize() in Wiki.php.
I did the httpsExtension and ran across Bug #10719 ("SpecialPage hooks are broken"). My goal is to create a "SecurePages"-Extension where the administrator can easily define which pages should be hit via https (a similar extension is available for drupal). The Problem is that there is no good hook that
- Is called on ALL pages (so you can actually check if I should redirect to https)
- Is called relatively soon (so not to much work is done before being redirected to https)
I therefor propose to create a new "BeforeInitialize"-Hook that is called in initialize() in includes/Wiki.php. The attached patch (for 1.13.0) would create such a hook. I tested this on a test-wiki with a modified version of the httpsLogin extension and it works just fine.
I think this would also solve some of the problems in Bug #10719?
