Description Eysteinn Gudni Gudnason 2007-09-11 22:02:12 UTC
Hi. There is a problem with '''$1''' in the special message [[MediaWiki:Addedwatchtext]]. For all I know, it returns [[{{NAMESPACE}}:{{BASEPAGENAME}}]]. The problem is, that when the NAMESPACE is {{ns:6}} (Image) it returns the entire Image, and when that image is large, it can be very disruptive. I'll suggest that we add a collon (":") into  '''$1''' like this: [[:{{NAMESPACE}}:{{BASEPAGENAME}}]]
Comment 1 Eysteinn Gudni Gudnason 2007-09-13 00:36:59 UTC
$1 seems to give {{NAMESPACE}}:{{BASEPAGENAME}} so a simple collon should fix this ( like [[:$1]] )
Comment 2 Rob Church 2007-09-13 11:18:22 UTC
If the colon is missing from the distributed message, then it needs to be added, and the message name changed.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2007-09-13 15:25:00 UTC
Default text contains [[:$1]].
