"<-- Go back to the page I was reading" when I was editing
Closed, InvalidPublic


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Start editing a page as anon
  2. Click "Create account" and fill out form
  3. Get redirected to Special:GettingStarted

The link on the bottom to return to what I was doing says "Go back to the page I was reading". But I was editing. Note that clicking on the link does bring back the edit view. My only concern is about the wording.

Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement

Yes, if we stick with sending users through Special:GettingStarted, we need to either fix this wording, or simply not interrupt users who were editing (like we do in the test version of [[m:R:OB6]])

This may be invalid soon since we're removing the Special page in favor of modals.
