Description Dan Jacobson 2007-07-26 00:56:56 UTC
This finds examples of unfortunately hardwired page links that one
cannot therefore adjust:
$ cd languages/messages
$ fgrep -i '[[Help:' *
Comment 1 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-07-26 01:04:16 UTC
All messages in languages/messages are overridable inside the wiki using the MediaWiki: namespace.  Find the appropriate message on Special:Allmessages and edit to your heart's content.  Are saying that we should perhaps pull the names of the pages from dedicated system messages, as we do with MediaWiki:Sidebar and so on?  I'll assume that's what you're saying: it's a good idea, insofar those links should be treated as content and not interface.
Comment 2 Dan Jacobson 2007-07-26 01:16:07 UTC
All I know is that in MessagesZh_tw.php
  詳情參見[[Help:幫助|幫助]]
is hardwired in that I must edit the message itself, as it has the destination hardwired in it without using the more habitual additional level of redirection.
Comment 3 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-07-26 01:19:04 UTC
Yes, then we're talking about the same thing.
Comment 4 Rob Church 2007-08-04 19:50:02 UTC
Messages containing links and text will provide sane defaults for titles in each language. If those defaults are not acceptable, edit the message. That's the whole point of it.
Comment 5 Dan Jacobson 2007-08-19 02:19:54 UTC
In this case there is more hardwiring than necessary, and less indirection than is ideal, I bet.

This comment makes no sense. Nothing is "hard-wired" - we provide a sane default in a customisable location.
