Section editing by right-click is broken
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: rdsmith4

Since the upgrade to MediaWiki 1.5, section editing by right-clicking on the
header (enabled in the "editing" tab of one's user preferences) no longer works,
though the [edit] links still appear to work well enough.

Version: 1.5.x
Severity: normal

reopening because the reporter indicated they have section edit links enabled,
and bug 2534 is about JS section editing not working only when section edit
links are disabled.

Works for me with:

Please double check:

  • javascript is enabled in your browser
  • edit on right click is checked in your preferences
  • you are actually using the correct mouse button and clicking on the header

(ok just kidding on that last check)

Eventually purge your browser cache.
Uncheck preference, save, recheck, save + clean browser cache.

Yes, now it works with [edit] links enabled, but when I disable those,
right-clicking still doesn't work.
