Description

Author: dan

Description:
In versions 1.21 and previous versions MediaWiki:Loginprompt could be used to add useful information to the login page and we were using this in all our wikis in Moodle.

Starting with version 1.22 -> 1.23 this message is no longer displayed in the new login page and we can not find a suitable replacement to add a message there.

You can see the existing use of this:

This ticket sounds more like a support question to me actually than a bug?

I had seen that bug, but I don't see LoginPrompt mentioned in the release notes or any of documentation about removed messages:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Account_creation_user_experience/Strings

So assumed it was an unintentional loss of functionality.

I'm not asking for support, I can implement this functionality locally, but non of the available strings are now appropriate for a longer description on the login page.

This is a 1.23 regression that will need a backport.
