Description Lejonel 2008-01-17 17:00:18 UTC
The page name of the checkuser log depends on the language preference of the user. And unlike other special pages the English name ([[Special:CheckUser/Log]]) only works if English language is selected in preferences. This makes it difficult to link to the log if checkusers has different language settings.

The pagename should be determined by the site language settings. And I think the English page name should work in all wikis.

The default English names will always work, unless there's a bug.
Comment 2 Lejonel 2008-01-19 18:55:22 UTC
For example if you choose French language in the language preferences, the log page is at Special:CheckUser/Journal.  Special:CheckUser/Log will take you to the ordinary check user page, not to the log.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2008-03-28 19:42:58 UTC
Confirmed that this is implemented in a way that's totally broken.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2008-03-28 19:53:14 UTC
Fixed in r32554... the language fallback is a bit dirty (an English hardcoded default), as there's no provision for aliases here.

But it should at least more or less work and use the content language. :P
