Description Dan Jacobson 2008-02-16 17:24:13 UTC
I didn't edit those several items on the above URL.
Why do they show up as changed from the default? (click "show only modified").
Removing the uselang=en shows the ones I edited correctly.
No problem, just stumbled upon this.
Anyway, if they were changed, they would have a history entry.

(P.S., putting the "show only modified" button right next to the entry box looks like that box's "submit" button.)
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2008-02-26 01:18:05 UTC
Seems to be triggered by this fallback code in MessageCache::get():

		# Is this a custom message? Try the default language in the db...
		if( ($message === false || $message === '-' ) &&
			!$this->mDisable && $useDB &&
			!$isFullKey && ($langcode != $wgContLanguageCode) ) {
			$message = $this->getMsgFromNamespace( $wgContLang->ucfirst( $lckey ) );

This is meant to allow a per-site customized message (eg MediaWiki:Sitenotice) to work as the fallback for a message which either isn't defined globally or is defined with an "empty" default (the various "-" messages).

However it doesn't seem to properly handle the case where there isn't anything customized locally. It should return the "-" for these cases, but instead returns the "<sitenotice>" etc.

This ends up turning pretty funky in the list...

Looks fixed now? Wiki is running 1.20alpha (112c80d)
