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...

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.

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.
