Bug ID: 61989
           Summary: Simultaneous Modification of Multiple Pages with
                    Semantic Forms
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: SemanticForms
       Web browser: ---
   Mobile Platform: ---

Right now the editing of multiple pages with Semantic Forms is rather
cumbersome with users having to edit every page separately, then sending it off
and waiting for the server reply to then click their way to the edit form for
the next page. The aim of this project is to facilitate the simultaneous
editing of the data of multiple pages displayed in a table, ideally giving a
spreadsheet-like experience.

As an additional goal there should be an autoedit-like functionality for
multiple pages. Using the #autoedit parser function it is currently possible to
create links that, when clicked on, create or edit one page automatically in
the background, with a preloaded set of values. With the new function it would
be possible to modify several pages at once.

Project goals:

* display data of multiple pages in a tabular form with each line containing
  the data of one page and each cell containing an input for one data item
* provide an optimized user interface for this form that allows for rapid
  navigation and editing with a special focus on keyboard navigation
* optional: for the data items use the input widgets as specified in an
  applicable form definition
* when submitted store the modified data using the job queue provide a parser
  function that allows the automatic modification of multiple pages

This project involves challenges regarding working with the MediaWiki API and
user rights management to protect the wiki from unauthorized mass-modification
of pages.
