some installer fields should always be LTR
Closed, ResolvedPublic


added 'dir'=>'ltr' to some fields

Some fields in the installer should always be dir="ltr" by default, because they are most likely Latin:

  • config-upload-deleted
  • config-db-name
  • config-db-prefix
  • config-upload-deleted
  • config-logo

In a rare case that some of these fields would be written in an RTL alphabet (an Arabic directory name, for instance), the user will be able to change the direction using Ctrl-Shift(-X).

Patch attached. It's my first PHP patch, so please be gentle :)

It's sometimes hard to decide which fields should be LTR by default, imho..
