Enable signature button on meta in main space
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

When trying to add my signature on meta to endorse a project, I noticed that the signature button is grayed out in VE, so I couldn't add it. I had to switch to wikitext.

Please enable the signature button because it is useful to endorse projects or add support.

Event Timeline

The signature button is only enabled on namespaces marked as "wantSignatures" in MWNamespace.php. This is the same behaviour as WikiEditor. Extra namespaces can be added per-wiki through the $wgExtraSignatureNamespaces config, so if you think one has been missed you can request a specific namespace be added on a specific wiki (see for example T133978 or T195588)
