Create a "support" button that perform the signature automagically in one click
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

On the Commons page their are links to the support page on Meta, which when followed give the description of additional action required to put a signature with wikitext. Instead of that, it would be great to have an action blue button that once clicked perform this changes automatically. Ideally, the button could be place anywhere on a Wikimedia site, but it should at least replace the instructions asking to edit the wikitext of the Meta page. If OOUI enable a cross site changes, it should nevertheless redirect to the modified page, so the user can see it's signature was indeed added, and a site notification should indicate that. If the user is not logged in, it might be interesting to add a modal frame with incentive to log in or sign up, but still allow anonymous signature as option.

Event Timeline

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Ivanhercaz/Tests seems perfect to me as far as the appearance goes, than you @Ivanhercaz we only need to add the functional part edit the page, possibly first checking if user is logged.

I will check it tomorrow to know if my knowledge I am able to do this or if I can learn to do it. For the moment, I am going to claim this task.

@Ivanhercaz any news on this?

I tried something on my side https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Psychoslave/test

But I'm not satisfied with the result. It does add text at the end of the aimed subpage (and section is targetable too), but it still show wikitext prefilled zone and the user have to save this form. Moreover it will insert an extra "\n" before, so numeroted list are not correctly interpreted.

I set up the probox template
