Closed, DeclinedPublic


Related pages extension should be available as a beta feature T143480 but for few days related pages is no longer available.


Clarification from @Jdlrobson :
The feature has not been a beta feature since April 2017.

The extension is installed as of Special:Version. By browsing the extension's git history, seems it was removed from desktop beta features by dbb73c389d73aef805d7b52f980922106d9d8bcf (see T146436 and T160076 too; commit authored by @Jdlrobson). Hence removing Wikimedia-Site-requests (extension is enabled, nothing for us here) and Regression (the behaviour seems to be intended from some reasons).

This is no longer available as a beta feature and is no longer possible in the code.

Do you want it enabled by default?

@Jdlrobson Can you describe what to do in order to enable it by default?

From our end it's just a config change but the process will need to be followed:

Specifically a link to discussion about enabling the feature. :)

Yeah, but I do not see the config variable that should be changed (if the community agree). Do you have an idea?

The conversation is old but it looks like the vote was in favor of doing this. 5 votes to 1.
That said it's been a couple of years so I'm declining this task. Please feel free to reopen it if you do want it enabled.
