Closed, ResolvedPublic


After T202773 releases, some wikis will have Partial Block functionality disabled. There will be some minor UI changes that happen:

We should make these alterations before T202773 deploys:

  • The 'Prevent editing' (or soon to be 'Editing') checkbox should be checked and marked as disabled

TBolliger created this task.

Based on what's in Special:Preferences, there is (more information)and (learn more) Both are lower case and all the text between the parentheses is linked. I prefer 'learn more' personally but am open to alternates.

[mediawiki/core@master] Update the design of Special:Block

Disabling the checkbox and using a link instead of a tooltip looks like this:

(Labels have also been updated in accordance with the discussion on T202773)

Yikes, I hate that link there. Let's remove it and continue working in T213101: Add help text to Special:Block for Partial Blocks

Otherwise the checkbox state looks good in the screenshot.
