Make the CAPTCHA display on the initial edit page when possible
Closed, ResolvedPublic


As it is, the CAPTCHA doesn't appear until you try saving your edit. If the CAPTCHA will definitely be displayed for an edit (because $wgCaptchaTriggers['edit'] or $wgCaptchaTriggersOnNamespace[NS_FOO]['edit'] is set), we should show it on the edit page before the user presses "Save page."

Copying stuff from bug 65913...

Nemo said in bug 65913 comment 2:

Thanks for working on this. It's indeed an issue that the user

  1. has to double the minimum "save" clicks required,
  2. may not notice that the edit wasn't saved and neglect to confirm it with

the captcha.
I assume we're not talking of the cases where an "addurl" captcha could be
triggered though, because we can't know beforehand whether the user will add
an URL; updated summary.
