RecentChanges: Discrepancy in filtering for 'PHP7' tag (non-active)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


'PHP7' tag as being marked non-active cannot be selected in Tag filters, yet there are many records on RC that are marked with this tag. To filter for 'PHP7' tag can be done from Special:Tags page by clicking on the 'Tagged changes' link which redirects to <a href="/w/index.php?title=Special:RecentChanges&amp;tagfilter=php7" title="Special:RecentChanges"></a>

  1. On enwiki go to Special:RecentChanges - there will be some records with PHP7 tag. However, when trying to filter by this tag - no such filter would be found.

  1. Checking Special:Tags - PHP7 tag has many edits, but is marked as non-active. Clicking on the number of edits link, Special:RecentChanges page will be displayed filtered for PHP7 tag.

This is because the patch (ff024d6e9e6dbedf05f3da74e18fbbe833227be1) which added the php7 tag only added it to the list of defined tags, not the list of active ones. The RC filters UI only allows for filtering by active tags. Since the tag is actively tagging edits, I'll submit a patch to add this to the list of "active" tags so you can filter by it in the RC filters UI.
