Summary: Store QuestyCaptcha questions and answers in an
automatically encrypted page, whose plaintext is
viewable only by sysops
Product: MediaWiki extensions
Component: ConfirmEdit (CAPTCHA extension)
Mobile Platform: ---
If we were to store QuestyCaptcha questions and answers in an automatically
encrypted page, whose plaintext is viewable only by sysops, then we could use
the revision history system to store old copies of it, and changes would not
require edits to LocalSettings.php.
The content to be saved to the page should be encrypted by, e.g., a
[[mw:Manual:Hooks/ParserBeforeStrip]] could be used to display to the sysop a
decrypted version of it. It would also be necessary to put that decrypted text
in sysops' edit windows when they edit; I haven't tried to figure out yet what
hook that would be.
Encryption keys could be stored in, say, [[mw:Manual:page_props]] or maybe
[[mw:Manual:user_properties]] or [[mw:Manual:config table]].
