Special page to view the html text generated by wikitext
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Create a special page (either in core or as an extension) which lets you view the html generated by the wikitext.

  • You have a wikitext form, like the action=edit one, and a «Preview» button.
  • When you click on that «Preview» button, instead of being shown the equivalent html rendered, it is shown inside a textearea.

Could be added on to special:expandtemplates

To be honest, I just usually hit view source...

Yes, I want something a bit less technical :)

Special:ExpandTemplates is now in core (bug 28264), too.

This would be rather easy to do, assuming we want to do it :) I see no reason why we couldn't add a checkbox there.
