Customizable default preload/editintro in add-new-section link for Talk page
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Author: anon.hui

Description:
Suggestion to change the add-new-section link on the top of Talk page (which appear as a plus sign "+" beside the edit link).

Current status

  • The link look like {{fullurl:...|action=edit&section=new}}

Suggestion for improvement

  • The link should look like {{fullurl:...|action=edit&section=new&preload=xxx&editintro=yyy}}
  • The value "xxx" and "yyy" can be customized in MediaWiki namespace, MediaWiki:talk-new-section-link-preload and MediaWiki:talk-new-section-link-editintro, for example.
  • If the page MediaWiki:talk-new-section-... is empty, then the link should look like {{fullurl:...|action=edit&section=new}}, which is the same as current status

Checks preload and editintro system messages and adds them

This proposed fix searches the system messages “talk-addsection-preload” and “talk-addsection-editintro” and loads them if they exist.

Maybe it would be nice to try loading “talk-addsection-…-<namespace>” (e. g. “talk-addsection-preload-0”) and then (if it doesn’t exist) try loading the standard “talk-addsection-…”. Comments?

Improves the previous proposed patch

Adds the two messages to MessagesEn.php (value ''). So I can check whether the system messages are '' (==> no editintro/preload) or not.

One may notice that, why not put the preload like,
{{fullurl:...|action=edit&section=new&preload=mediawiki:talk-addsection-preload&editintro=mediawiki:talk-addsection-editintro}}?
Well, this will always prevent the user from editing the preload template, which is not desired.

Good, this is very useful.
