Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-04-30 20:19:18 UTC

Normaly (99%) I use the same interface as the languages of the wiki's.

I noticed that the numbers of items in the "Navigation" menue differs between
the wikis:

# 5 items: [[lt:]], ...
# 6 items: [[en:]], [[he:]], ...
# 7 items: [[et:]], [[lv:]], [[ro:]], ...

If you change the user interface to another language then the une used for the
wiki you maigth have the following anomalous situations:

a) if you look at [[lt:]] with the interface in Romanian language you will see
'''more'' items then available: 7 not 5
b) if you look at [[ro:]] with the interface in Latvian language you will see
'''less'' items then available: 5 not 7

c) Because lack of coordination you will follow a link which maight be
"''labeled''" differntly, it maight have another '''content''' then you expect.


* The seccond navigation item at [[en:]] is [[en:Wikipedia:Community Portal]]
linked to [[de:Wikipedia:Portal]] linked to [[ca:Portada]] (in the article

* The last is the first navigation item at [[ca:]]. The seccond navigation item
at [[ca:]] is [[ca:Viquipèdia:La taverna]] linked to [[en:Wikipedia:Village
pump]] and [[de:Wikipedia:Forum]].

According to my opinion harmonising the wiki's would be the most suitable solution.

I have no idea about how to solve the problem "with software". Interlanguage
links have improuved but there are still many conflicts regarding these pages as
one can see. ([[ca:Portada]] maight be linked to [[en:Main Page]],
[[de:Hauptseite]] etc.
