Special:NewLexeme no longer supports passing lemma-language in the URL
Closed, ResolvedPublic3 Estimated Story Points

Description

For some languages, Special:NewLexeme requires entering the lemma language separately. Until a few weeks ago, it was possible to pass lemma-language as a URL parameter to Special:NewLexeme to prefill the form fields. Now the lemma-language parameter is ignored and the lexeme can't be added unless the user manually fills in that field. Other parameters still work.

Examples:

It would be useful for this to work again, because then people can create links/bookmarks for common combinations.

Marking as high as it is a Regression

This was happening before the refactorings (I used an old version) and it's a frontend issue. When you apply it, the input element has the value of the language but it gets overridden by the language selector widget. Probably @Jakob_WMDE is better suited to take a look here.

Tarrow added a subscriber: Tarrow.

Since @Jakob_WMDE is now hiking on Termbox I'll pick this up and take a look. If I hit a wall I'll page him :)
