Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-06-14 10:54:43 UTC


fails in 1.5alpha2 and prior at non wikimedia foundation wikis.

This behaviour has been reported at

related (?) bugs:
bug 65 – Links mixing latin1 literal characters and entities produce bad UTF-8
bug 0850 – Double redirects not caught between wikis
bug 2303 – interwiki links to wikimedia foundation wiki's fail if they contain
UTF-8 characters etc.
bug 2342 – w:he:(aleph) is a valid interwiki link at en: but not at other wiki's
bug 2372 – [[interwiki_foo:]] will generate wrong code and render incorrect

See similar testcases at:

You need to put a page title in there!

Resolving INVALID.
Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-02-10 22:08:02 UTC
Changing subject "links as [[wikipedia:de:]] will fail at non wikimedia
foundation wikis" on this to "Links as [[wikipedia:de:]] will fail at non
Wikimedia Foundation wikis / Links as [[w:bm:]] will fail at"

Bug 2351 Interwiki links don't work on
shows the same symptoms with concatenatong InterWiki prefixes.

One part of
Bug 2226: Interwiki links to other sites than Wikipedia
is a duplicate of this bug.

There are only a few exceptions where concatenation of InterWiki links works
(some only when a page is specified).

One or both of [[meta:bm:]] [[meta:bm:Main_Page]] should work trough MediaZilla.

1. [[meta:bm:]] includes no title, as observed above
2. It's a bug tracker. We don't need it to be able to link to each individual
project in each individual language. Just use the URL field.

It seems the interwiki links aren't used except for when people are
cross-referencing a load of utter bollocks in bug reports anyway.
