"Request account" Link
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I am referring to the documentation, it seems to be a bit faulty.
In my experience, you do not need the function described there including the hook. Also, you do not have to add "Request account" to page "MediaWiki:Requestaccount".
You simply have to add "[[Spezial:Benutzerkonto_beantragen|Benutzerkonto beantragen]]" or what ever language you speak to "MediaWiki:Loginprompt".

Hi @Markusb-96, thanks for taking the time to report this and welcome to Wikimedia Phabricator! Could you provide a link to that documentation, please?

That's correct. It can be removed.

JeffreyWang claimed this task.

@JeffreyWang Thanks for updating the docu, however what we see now on the page leaves me a bit clueless. The latest version from Git could be master or some branch like REL1_35. 1.35 is affected however master would break the wiki since it requires 1.37 minimum. I suspect you have a specific commit in mind. I guess this should be back-ported to the affected supported branches, or we need to tweak the docu to point to a specific commit.

I believe adding something to "MediaWiki:Loginpromt" should somehow be part of an updated docu. This tip could safe people quite some time.

Would it perhaps be better to say to upgrade to the latest version of the branch? REL1_35 users should stay on REL1_35, and this works just fine on the latest version of the REL1_35 branch.

Indeed, this will be better to avoid misunderstandings.

I e.g. am on REL1_35 with the latest commit and I am definitively not getting the link. Thus we should probably also note that REL1_35 does not contain the fix.

EDIT: I am using the Tweeki skin. This one may be involved too. :|

EDIT 2: I think Tweeki may be the pain point in my case. So disregard my comment on REL1_35 not working.
