Message "apihelp-blogpage-param-pageName" should be in lowercase
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In order of being able to upgrade grunt-banana-checker to its latest version, the message "apihelp-blogpage-param-pageName" should be in lowercase. That also means finding and replacing where the message is being used in the code itself I guess.

Thank you.

Though in the long run I think it would be a good idea to actually rename this pageName parameter to all-lowercase pagename. (In fact, it’s already documented under that name on To do this without suddenly breaking clients, you should probably declare both pagename and pageName in ApiBlogPage::getAllowedParams(), marking pageName as deprecated (PARAM_DEPRECATED => true), and read $params['pagename'] ?? $params['pageName'] in execute() (assuming the extension already requires PHP 7, otherwise ?? isn’t available); announce the change wherever you want and wait for however long you think is necessary (since this extension isn’t bound by MediaWiki’s formal deprecation policy); and eventually get rid of the pageName parameter.

The whole API module was removed in 6b108f850027baa93ba3bc7109e9671bc6f2271b so thus the message is also gone.
