Just to note that as one who has put significant time into ManageWiki and our cleanish configuration, I am opposed on adding this to ManageWiki, as it is not a clean method of doing so. But it is really not up to me anymore so it's up to whoever ends up actioning this task.

However, these are already done per-request, and there are numerous wikis that have already done them by request and in my opinion that should be how it continues to be done to avoid a much more complicated config.

Anyway, I understand wanting to add them, but some things are better left not in ManageWiki due to risk of overcomplicating, and this, to me, seems to be one such instance. I'll leave this to SRE now that I have said my thoughts on it.

I won't advise adding this to ManageWiki; it would complicate things. There's nothing wrong with doing it at the request of users.
Let's not add to the existing workload when we can dodge it now.
In my humble opines tho.

I accidentaly set the wrong tag; this is asking for a setting to be added to ManageWiki, which is done on the MediaWiki configuration side of things, rather than on the extension's code.

I am also opposed to adding these settings to ManageWiki, as UO has stated. Better to let this be by request.

OrangeStar claimed this task.

No need to wait for an SRE member, this task is clearly not going to get done. @Bbbtest If you want to change these settings on one of your wikis, please file a separate task and we'll get to it when able.

OrangeStar changed the task status from Resolved to Declined.Mar 21 2023, 16:06

How would it complicate things? These are literally true or false options. Can't we just use a checkbox like we use with the VisualEditor?
