Description Shinjiman 2007-10-03 15:30:34 UTC
Just having discussion with [[zh-classical:User:Itsmine]] (which is the sysop in the Classical Chinese Wikipedia). And there's a localisation changes for the SITENAME variable.

Is that anyone that have shell access can change the $wgSitename variable from
"Wikipedia" to "維基大典", and keep the $wgMetaNamespace to "Wikipedia"?

thanks and regards

Why do you want to keep the wgMetaNamespace as "Wikipedia"? There's a certain tradition to have the Sitename and the Metanamspace the same.
Comment 2 Shinjiman 2007-10-06 00:36:11 UTC
It is because that all of the pages that are link to the "Wikipedia" namespace are need to be  modified to make the thing re-linkable, unless those links points to the namespace "Project" which this namespace is canonical. (i.e. That will break lots of pages and templates which links to the namespace "Wikipedia".)

There's some examples are using different $wgSitename and $wgMetaNamespace in the WMF site, the Cantonese version of Wikipedia, for example.
Comment 3 JeLuF 2007-10-06 08:26:01 UTC
There are namespace aliases available, it is possible to have a configuration where 'Wikipedia', 'Project' and '維基大典' can be used to address that namespace, i.e. 'Project' and 'Wikipedia' will be redirected to '維基大典'. 

This is the usual configuration for Wikis that change their sitename.
