2015 black menu bar -- some "wiki tools" links are wrong

Kdrinkwa 13:00, 13 March 2015 (CDT)


  • "Move Page" link should be *[PageTitle] , rather than *[PageTitle]&action=move
  • The wrong page title is getting inserted into links sometimes -- for example, if you go to the deletion page for Page X, and then click Edit, it will try to edit the deletion page, not Page X.

Priority: Should probably get fixed before we start approving teams
