Description Rémi Kaupp 2007-12-14 15:40:03 UTC
Currently, when someone types an invalid URL such as (omitting the "wiki/"), one gets a 404 error written in English. Maybe those error messages could be internationalised in the software ?

Moreover, it points on the website for some reason, but I can't see why this is appropriate (maybe some local help page would be better ?)

This message doesn't come from Mediawiki.

Adding a block on bug 17316 to remind us we'd want to be able to localize the new 404 error page.
Comment 4 Platonides 2009-04-07 20:58:44 UTC
The new error message should be editable on the wiki, with a message similar to this:

<h2>404 – File not found</h2>
<p style="font-style: italic;">{{SERVER}}/$1</p>
<p>We could not find the above page on our servers.</p>
<p style="font-weight: bold;">To check for "$1" on {{SITENAME}}, see: [[$1]]</p>
|<p style="font-weight: bold;">To search for "$1" on {{SITENAME}}, see: [[Special:Search/$1]]</p> }}
<p>Alternatively, you can visit the [[{{MediaWiki:Mainpage}}]] or read [[HTTP 404|more information]] about this type of error.</p>

<p style="font-size: smaller;">A project of the [[foundation:|Wikimedia Foundation]]</p>

Everything but the {{#ifexist: could be parsed by an extension and saved to just replace all $1 in the static text on but when it is added, I suspect that users will start trying to add parserfunctions there, and sending people to another inexistant page is a bit ugly.
