action=purge generator mode does not show query continue
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When purging a list of titles with the generator param of action=purge, no query continue is provided to allow going to the next batch of titles to purge.

This makes the generator mode not helpful on a fix list of titles, only when the titles to purge will go from the generator module (using forcelinkupdate on a list of backlinks from a changed wikilink in a template) it is useful, because it can be resubmitted over and over until the list is empty or it content does not changed.
