Package: wiki.debian.org
Severity: wishlist

I have seen people telling me wiki page is immutable.

I am not talking about real immutable pages but pages marked "Immutable Page"
just for people not loged-in.

If such "Immutable Page" text has embedded link to a page explaining "they need
to login", I think people understand better.

See mail exchange as below:

| Could this be fixed? Most wikis say "log in to edit this page", and make

I was able to fix this by creating a new disabledEdit function for the
Debian theme that creates a Login link when the user is not logged in.

There are two caveats:

If you use themes other than debwiki it won't show up.

I couldn't use "Login to Edit" because that wouldn't be translated.

Will have a look at forwarding this change upstream.
