There are two preferences when WikiEditor is installed:
- Enable enhanced editing toolbar
The first option is not related to WikiEditor and it is only relevant to the classic toolbar. However, regular editors don't know that the new one is called "WikiEditor" or that it is enhanced. This preference has practically no effect if "Enable enhanced editing toolbar" is checked. A user may want to disable the toolbar, so he will uncheck "Show edit toolbar", but the WikiEditor will stay. That is very confusing.
I would envision something different:
- If WikiEditor is installed, then it will have radio buttons or a dropdown for selecting the kind of toolbar the user wants: classic or modern.
There are other possibilities, such as:
- showing the classic toolbar with Monobook and the new one with Vector.
- retiring the classic toolbar entirely.
Implementing this should be fairly easy, but i suppose that a decision from usability people is needed.
