Dieter: (Resolved) Comments not shown for mass edits (2008-07-14 01:42) [#4853]
  • Comments are not shown for mass edits
  • A fortiori, the (mass edit) is not appended, though it's stated it will

I see them all - edits are minoredits. See FRC mode in RecentChanges. Am I missing something?

I do see the edits in FRC. When doing an edit, you can add a comment, just like for a normal edit. Next to the comment box it says "(mass edit) will be appended automatically". But since the mass edits are minor and can be seen only in FRC, no comments are shown, no do they show up in the page info.

It is not necessary for me, only the existence of the comment box is confusing.

ArnoHollosi: Re: FRC mode not FullRecentChanges (update) (2008-07-05 15:41) [#4857]

I did not mean FullRecentChanges (which does indeed not show any comments), but FRC mode of RecentChanges - there you can see the comments.

Update: oops, just saw that the FRC mode is my private RecentChanges profile. If you like to have it too, go to UserPreferences, section "RecentChanges settings" and set the fourth profile (RC4) to

Name: FRC
View: "most recent"
Period: 3 days
Minor edits for: "all pages"
Watched pages #1: check Hl: check
Watched pages #2: check Hl: check
Watched pages #3: check Hl: (unchecked)

ArnoHollosi: edit summaries (2008-07-15 01:02) [#4889]

Edit summaries are now shown in FullRecentChanges too.

OK. Got it: you can see it in diff mode.
