A wiki can be made readonly like so:
$wgReadOnly = true;
If the editor has been opened before read only mode has been invoked, and an edit is completed with the mobile source editor, when the save fails, a toast is presented with a generic error message, but the toast is not visible until you scroll down, and the toast appears "underneath" the article content. The error message should probably display the "apierror-readonly" message EditorOverlay.js#L285
- Make sure any error is displayed inside the editor itself, above the preview, using errorbox class (note other box styles may be inside mobile.special.styles.
- Remove code relating to toast error handling.
- Include and display the apierror-readonly error message when this error occurs
Code lives inside MobileFrontend.
read only mobile
Open the mobile editor.
While open, ask a developer to enable
$wgReadOnly = 'This wiki is currently being upgraded to a newer software version.';
- Does the read only message show inside the editor when you try to save your edit?
