#1125 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Allow Potlatch to take lists of IDs (or multiple single parameters) on URL instead of just single ID

I heard from a talk at SOTM that the next release of Potlatch will allow you to pass an ID on the URL, and Potlatch will take you to that node or way and select it for immediate editing. That sounds really useful.

I've been looking at how we can use Tagwatch to fix up bogus tags. I was going to do it semi-automatically, but some people think that might make things worse. So I was wondering: is there any chance you could make Potlatch take a _list_ of IDs? (Usually a short one.)

You see, if there are e.g. ten nodes tagged "highway=tretiary", it would be cool for the following to happen. You click a link in Tagwatch, and it goes away to the OSMXAPI and retrieves all the nodes with that tag. It then extracts the IDs and redirects you to Potlatch, passing the IDs on. Potlatch finds and selects the first one so you can edit it. But _then_, it has a "Next" button, which takes you to the next one, until you've done them all.

How does that sound?

You'd just need to store the list and provide a button which worked through it. For bonus points, when Next is clicked, check the next node ID against a list of nodes already edited in that session and bypass it if the user has already worked on it. (Or, in reverse, as nodes get edited, check them against the list and remove that item from the list.)
