inputbox with type=commenttitle and page=Special:MyPage loses the input comment heading
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: lars


With the combination above, where Special:MyPage redirects to the user's own page, the text entered into the box does not appear as preloadtitle= in the resulting the URL and thus doesn't show up as the heading for the new message/comment. With page=User:LA2 it works just fine, but now I wanted to create an inputbox that adds a new section to the user's own page, not LA2's user page. Other parameters, such as preload= and editintro= are passed through just fine.

This was tested on in March 2011.

Special Pages *cannot* be edited.But Special:MyPage will redirect us to the current users page(which can be edited).When we use above InputBoxForm for editing Special:MyPage , it redirects us to another link by a *302* error.During this process the value of preloadtitle is lost.

SpecialMypage in SpecialPage.php (core) has a list of "allowedRedirectParams" which contains "preload", but not "preloadtitle".

Adding "preloadtitle" to the list of SpecialMypage and SpecialMytalk would fix this.

Proposed Fix of the bug

Added preloadtitle in allowedparaters list of SpecialMyPage and SpecialMyTalk
I guess we have to add few more parameters in the allowedparameters of specialmypage and specialmytalk..which may be causing few more problems somewhere else
