Description

17 years ago
When a system parameter on editparams.cgi is different from the default, we
should indicate this to the administrator.

This can happen because:

- the administrator has changed it, in which case it is useful as we often ask
"have you changed parameter X?"
- the default has changed, in which case the administrator might want to change
to it

We should possibly not do this for parameters where the default is not valuable,
eg urlbase and maintaineremail (sp?).

Where we do do it, we should also provide some mechanism to let the admin see
what the default really is.

"Reset to default" should not be a checkbox on submit, it should be a button which fills in the default value immediately using JS. And if the value is already the default, it should be greyed out. That would fix this bug and make the Reset feature more useful and understandable.
