Description Melancholie 2007-07-17 02:52:58 UTC
[[MediaWiki:Markaspatrolledtext]] only accepts raw text. Everything is rendered as raw text, no span tags are possible for example (for adding id, class, color, etc.). In [[MediaWiki:Markaspatrolleddiff]] and [[MediaWiki:Markedaspatrolledtext]] this is possible, so please allow HTML and/or Wiki syntax in MediaWiki:Markaspatrolledtext, too (as this can be very helpful).
Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-07-17 02:56:35 UTC
It's a link label; we don't usually allow anything other than raw text in these.
Comment 2 Melancholie 2007-07-17 04:43:53 UTC
You did so in [[MediaWiki:Markedaspatrolledtext]], for example. And this for good reasons (it's-up-to-you-adaptability > id, class, style, ...); no need for restricting it more than other MediaWiki messages.
Comment 3 Rob Church 2007-07-17 22:14:55 UTC
However, that message is supposed to contain an explanation; it's standard for us to allow wiki text in such messages. As I explained above, "markaspatrolledtext" is a link label, and it's *not normal* to allow wiki text there.

The link itself is wrapped in a <div> with class "patrollink", so it's quite possible to style this normally using CSS.
