Editing pages on double click broken in Classic and Nostalgia skins
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Author: mediazilla

Editing pages on double click (a feature that can be enabled with a user preference) does not work in MediaWiki 1.20 when using the Classic or Nostalgia skin.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. On any Wikimedia wiki, switch to the Classic or Nostalgia skin in Preferences->Appearance.
  2. Enable page editing on double click in Preferences->Editing->Advanced Options.
  3. Load any page you would normally be able to edit, e.g. your user page.
  4. Double click on the page.

Expected result:
The "edit page" form is brought up.

Actual result:
Nothing happens.

Further notes:

  1. When using any other skin (Chick, Cologne Blue, Modern, Monobook, MySkin, Simple and Vector), everything works and you get the expected result.
  2. I've tested different older MediaWiki versions; 1.18(.6) is fine, 1.19(.4) is not.

Version: 1.21.x
Severity: normal

At first I was thinking of bug 44522, but as you state that it's already a problem in 1.19... Is there any JavaScript debug output in the web console of your browser?

This isn't an issue anymore since the old skins were removed in Ia6d73c2d. Marking WONTFIX.
