Unregistered users and the applychangetags user right

Peter Bowman (talkcontribs)

I have developed a gadget that enhances the process of adding translations to a Wiktionary entry. It performs an edit action on the page via API. At the same time, a locally defined tag is applied to the revision through the corresponding API parameter: ?action=edit&tags=xxx. I have noticed that for this to work, the editor must have the applychangetags user right (do not confuse with changetags). On WMF wikis, it is granted by default to all logged-in users. Is there a reason why it is not for unregistered users, too?

I thought "tags" are so fundamental feature in all CMS (and many other stuff), but I don't know why MediaWiki don't support it, this is so important feature to manage information. Enumerative classification (traditional hierarchical tree structure) and Faceted classification (tag, or hashtag) are 2 major way in information classification and organization, is there any way this is still not a core feature in MediaWiki?

Matěj Suchánek (talkcontribs)

Maybe there was no demand? Wikis usually "tag" pages using the other system (ie. categories) or templates.

Treegb (talkcontribs)

Yes you are right, thanks for reminding me, MediaWiki categories are equivalence to tags in other CMS. But "it seems" unless using extension (like Extension:Multi-Category Search), there is no "native" way to do a searching with one category, or multiple category, maybe I'm wrong?

Matěj Suchánek (talkcontribs)

Right, no native way AFAIK. But this is where extensions arise.

Can be used for tags - but so much more.

Semantic Mediawiki (SMW) is a free, open-source ex­ten­sion to MediaWiki that lets you store and query data with­in the wiki's pages.

It's possible to add a tag to an edit checking the useragent of the user? I want to add a tag for edits made from a special application that uses the API.
