Description Zigger 2005-06-22 13:31:01 UTC
A hyperlink could be added from [[Special:Allmessages]] to Special:Allpages for
the MediaWiki namespace, e.g.,

This would help people viewing/editing messages to get to extension messages
(bug 740) and translations, and is a good reminder that Allmessages does not
have the whole namespace.
Comment 1 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-06-22 13:36:54 UTC
They won't get untranslated extension messages since they only exists in the
message cache.
Comment 2 Robert Leverington 2007-03-17 16:11:01 UTC
Since [[MediaWiki:Allmessagestext]] already exists it will only take a
modification to the language files to add it by default - and then translation.
Comment 3 Rob Church 2007-03-17 16:42:42 UTC
The situation has changed now; the MediaWiki namespace doesn't contain all the
default messages, so unless the message has been customised from the language
default, it won't show up there. Extension messages can be made to show up in
Special:Allmessages using the appropriate hook.

I'm going to close this one now, as it's no longer relevant.
