Someone reported:
"Is there a way to put the [edit^] and [History^] buttons on the top of the page as tabs.

I understand that the point in threads is to allow for discussion, however moving the buttons from their standard position makes it harder for people to use the page. I'd be willing to modify my source code if you could give me a hint at where the change might be located."

I fully support this idea and filed this as enhancement bug.

There is a distinct difference between editing a *page* and editing a *thread* and editing a *post within a thread*. This is a complicated problem, but putting the edit and history links at the top of the page is not going to solve your problem as described.

Sorry Brandon, you misunderstood. The requester wanted to have the single additional buttons [^edit] and [^history] on top of the "standard, non-lqt" mediawiki page, i.e. the action=edit and action=history for the current page. I support this wish, as I often was puzzled where to find this unusual links, when they were not tabs.

Take this example:
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension_talk:User_Merge_and_Delete

User coming to that page do _not_ see how they can add or edit the page - they need to go down the whole page to find [^edit] and [^history] links (after having Lqt activated on this page.

The bug aims to ask the Lqt developers to find a solution, that these two links are tabs of the page, on top of the page.

LiquidThreads has been replaced by StructuredDiscussions on all Wikimedia production wikis (except one, which will be done soon). It is no longer under active development or maintenance, so I'm re-classifying all open LQT tasks as "Lowest" priority.
