VisualEditor: Add support for (the equivalent of?) editintro and preload
OpenPublic

Description

I read in wikitech mailing list that VisualEditor is going to be deployed for testing on new users on enwiki. New users may use tutorials/wizards which use editintro/preload features, which aren't supported by the visual editor yet.


Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement

bzimport set Reference to bz49622.

I think editintro/preload would be very useful not just for new users, but for many kinds of repetitive administration tasks/queries for which preloads are now used. Having TemplateData integrated (I guess), users could be presented the fields they have to fill in the visual way, avoiding errors and fully controlling the input.

Editintro/preloud are parts of inputbox extension? Or how it is related?

Editintro and preload are parameters supported by the core, but it is "hidden feature", which is exposed natively by InputBox extension (on non native - using external link)

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
