|Allow the "info" action.
|Introduced in version:||1.3.0 (r4247)|
|Removed in version:||1.19|
This setting, if enabled, allows users to get some extra information about the page by specifying "action=info" in the URL.
The setting has been phased out with MediaWiki 1.20 (bug 38451).
For example, entering
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki?action=info might generate the following (fictional) output instead of the main page contents:
Currently you have to add the action manually to the URL, as there is no link to this page regardless of the value of this setting. See bug 16362.
Note that on Wikimedia servers (e.g. Wikipedia, Wiktionary, etc.) this function is disabled, as it is very inefficient and because it allows potential vandals an easy way to find unwatched targets.
