Lost edit summaries

From Support
Jump to: navigation, search

The popup thing that is supposed to warn you about the importance of edit summaries actually eats them if you submit the edit form via keyboard.

Or the "publish" bottom at the top of the edit form (which is what a keyboard submit falls back to as the first submit element), instead of the "save" at the bottom.

Thanks for reporting. What do you suggest/plan to do? Did you report this on phabricator with more details in the meanwhile?

T111670. I suggest removing $wgDefaultUserOptions['wikieditor-publish'] = 1; from the TranslateWiki configuration; it seems to be a thoroughly useless feature.

Thanks, now I understand. I never use WikiEditor so I had no idea those buttons existed.

I don't find such a setting in the current or past configuration for twn. Hmm.

Tested with a new account and it indeed defaults to off. Maybe I just enabled it manually a long time ago and forgot it (it's the "Enable step-by-step publishing" option in Editing > Labs features btw). Sorry for the noise.
