Description

What problems would this solve?
===============================
Being able to quickly get to the admin panel for a given page in the wiki would make several tasks easier, including deleting pages (especially that, actually).

Who would use this?
===================
Site admins.

What would users see?
=====================
Nothing. Admins would see an option added to the "This page" menu.

What would users do? What would happen as a result?
===================================================
Choosing this option would take you to the Django "Change document" page for the wiki page being viewed. Among the options on that page is a delete button.

Is there anything else we should know?
======================================
Getting to the Django pages more easily makes sense. I know you spend a substantial amount of time deleting pages and doing other administrative work.

We have talked about supporting these administrative tasks outside of the Django interface. Perhaps spending our time on that would better solve your problem, as it would be more permanent and would not result in a feature that is eventually removed.

Perhaps, except adding a quick link to the Django page would take just a few minutes, and would be a huge convenience in the meantime. Getting the "real" delete feature implemented is going to take more time than that, and isn't as important as a lot of other things, so having this would be a nice mid-term compromise, I think.

Given the rise in spam lately, this is becoming more of a priority. Having to go to the Django panel and search for the page to delete it is taking too much time. Would be very useful to add a "Delete this page" option to the "This page" menu for admins, that links to the delete feature in the Django control panel.

That's not an ideal long-term solution for page deletion, but would sure help in the meantime.
