VisualEditor: Consistency when restoring a page
Closed, DeclinedPublic


<<[...] When you edit an old version of a page, you get the "save page" at the top of the page, but a "restore page" button instead of the "save page" button at the edit summary page, even if you have made changes in the older version (and thus aren't simply restoring it). Why we have two different buttons (save and restore), when we have only one name otherwise, isn't clear. Beneath the "restore page " button, the small text says "By clicking the "save page" button, you agree...". It doesn't indicate what I agree to by clicking the "restore page" button though...

Reminding the user that they are editing from an old version and restoring it (with any changes they have made) over the top of the current version of the page is intentional. WONTFIXing.
