How to hide the “Save your changes” confirmation window when saving a page on Mediawiki

I have a personal wiki running on mediawiki and don't think I really need to track the page edit summary or whatsoever, so is there anyway to skip it? which means when I am done with editing on a page and click on Save, it just Save the page without asking me to describe what I changed..

Thank you! (talkcontribs)

Did u find a way to this problem or is it still unsolved?

Hello all,

I have had a quick look at this, and decided it was too much of a specific hack. But for all of you asking this question, see the file:


where you will find this function:

and I'm pretty sure that is where the magic happens. It isn't just a simple case of saying "skip the dialogue" because there are numerous messages that are handled.

Adding this at the beginning of, this.getSaveOptions());



Seems to save the changes without annoying popup and leave the editing mode. But it still requires a manual page refresh (or clicking the Page tab) to see the saved changes. (talkcontribs)

Read tab, not the Page tab (talkcontribs)

Well both are fine actually ;-)
