Description xmlizer 2004-08-11 14:04:14 UTC
the goal is to have a special escape char <esc> such that
[[toto<esc>a=b<esc>b=c|titi]]
make a link to
wiki/toto?a=b&b=c
so there is two challenge
find the correct character <esc> and implement this
it will be helpful for contribution link, whatlinkshere and add section
Comment 1 Timwi 2004-08-11 17:08:25 UTC
It is already possible to link to the contributions of a particular user using
[[Special:Contributions/Username]]. The same applies to Special:Whatlinkshere.

As for more elaborate situations, [[MediaWiki:Noarticletext]] demonstrates how
to do this:
[{{SERVER}}{{localurl:{{NAMESPACE}}:{{PAGENAME}}|action=edit}} edit this page]
Comment 2 xmlizer 2004-08-11 17:55:19 UTC
Ok it's possible but it's not really readable, isn't it ?

and what about for doing interwiki link ?

PS : the link to Noarticletext don't work !

The more we extend the wiki syntax with stuff that people don't need very often,
the less readable it will become.

> and what about for doing interwiki link ?

It is always possible to just simply specify the real URL.

> PS : the link to Noarticletext don't work !

Yes, it does. The reason you're seeing the "this article doesn't exist" message
is because that is the contents of [[MediaWiki:Noarticletext]].
Comment 4 xmlizer 2004-08-12 09:44:37 UTC
ok! sorry for responding too rapidly ! and effectively complicating the langage
is not for sure a good issue.
But i see the great advantage of intra links is that some day we could detect
for each link if it exist or not and give far much power to keep a cleen wikipedia 
Now i better understand the WONTFIX
Comment 5 xmlizer 2004-08-12 15:21:45 UTC
and what about the link
[{{SERVER}}{{localurl:{{NAMESPACE}}:{{PAGENAME}}|action=edit|section=new}}
Append a new message] which don't work as expected ?
