Closed, DeclinedPublic


Hi this is a suggestion that wikieditor be added to the core and replace the old toolbar. since this would make the editor look really nice and more advanced.

Please provide actual objective and convincing reasons.
"look really nice and more advanced" is not a reason, especially not without providing proof why that would be the case.

Well the objective and convincing reason is that with wikieditor built into mediawiki core it will provide an advanced editor instead of the current one installed. it will also make it add customisation which it already has but built into mediawiki which the current ecitor doesent have yet. it would also reduce people having to download wikieditor instead just downloding the updated mediawiki code which would include the code.

I believe moving the classic edit toolbar out of core (instead of bringing another toolbar to core) is the way to go (see T30856).

WikiEditor has been bundled with MediaWiki since MediaWiki 1.18. So anyone installing it by normal means as a customer already gets it by default.

As for moving into MediaWiki core, that has no added positive value and lots of negative value (at the very least it needs a way to be fully disabled to allow users to install other editors, such as CKEditor, like Wikia does). Having bare MediaWiki only provide a text area with nothing around it seems like a great platform to build on. Extensions can bring in their own and site administrators can install the one(s) they want.
