Yeah, I'd be happy to lose the footer [search
Will wait for you to look at your London changes before doing anything
about this, because the default front page won't have any search box
to have wikitext in its recent changes which is displayed.
Which is confusing, because clearly it isn't Just Another Wiki Node.
I think you're referring to some edit comments I made. This is a habit I
picked up from Wikipedia; I'm aware that this doesn't do anything at the
moment. It was kind of a reminder to myself to make a suggestion here about
it, which I can now do.
No, I mean the text that appears in the content box at
There is clearly unexplained magic happening here; if it is a wiki node,
it should just contain a macro that lets it list recent changes. If it's
not, why does it contain an editable wikitext space?
I think it would be very useful if Recent Changes
comments could support
precisely one form of wiki syntax, namely local links ([[blah]]). It's a
nice thing to be able to do when documenting certain types of edits, e.g.
category/locale changes, because it means you can look at a comment that
says "moved from Category X to Category Y" and click through straight into
those categories to decide for yourself if it was a good edit. There's no
reason to support any other kind of syntax in the comments, though, due to
obvious security issues.
Hmm, I'm not so keen on this. It seems like too much added complexity
for the benefit.
