Tech:Remove page size warning
Should I worry about this?
Archived from the en:Pub:
This has probably already been brought up, but I'm new here and I can't find any info on it so...
You know when you edit pages and it says "WARNING: This page is ?? kilobytes long; some browsers may have problems editing pages approaching or longer than 32kb. Please consider breaking the page into smaller sections." Well, I see this on almost every article with sufficent content, including stars, but I don't see anyone bringing it up. Is this something I should just ignore? PerryPlanet 13:52, 3 January 2007 (EST)
Just changing the value or removing it from the code is pretty easy. It just makes other things harder. We already have a handful of changes to the MW core that make upgrading a chore (every change we make needs to get merged into each new version of the code) and I'm reluctant to add to the list unless its something that's really critical. If we just want to remove the text we can edit the message into something that won't display (MW doesn't allow truly blank messages, but some simple html will suffice). I've implemented this on review and if that works then I can roll it out. If we really need to bump the warning size up then I'll see if there is a clever way to manage the upgrade issues.
