phase3/maintenance/language/messages.inc entry missing.
Entry added in r75607
If I see right this functionality cannot work for WMF sites because https://en.wikipedia.org is not defined (this is bug 20643).
Would it be an idea to add $wgHTTPSUrl or similar?
Using https://secure.wikimedia.org/ means having to convert the project from being host based to path based :
fr.wikipedia.org => wikipedia/fr
In my mind, most admin use the same host, path for both protocols.
The current secure server config uses hooks to do URL mangling. If we added a couple here, server admins could use them to implement any URL scheme they wanted. I think at least a "GetLoginURL" hook could be useful.
That sounds overtly specific for a hook. We can have a more general hook and pass the title object to it. Actually we already have one: GetLocalUrl – and it works.
This patch was not meant to install "as is" for WikiMedia special case which is a different issue nor it was intended to support any exotic setup.
The secret plan is to make WikiMedia use HTTPS with the same host.
I don't think having two different hostnames for HTTP/HTTPS is that unusual.
see also bug 225
$wgSecureLoginStickHTTPS is a horrible name; $wgSecureLoginPerpetuateHttps or something would be better.
wgSecureLoginStickHTTPS is removed by r79860
Marking this rev new since it does implement the http / https functionalities when using the same host + path.
Does not set returnto on secure Userlogin link.
