Description Timwi 2004-09-03 03:22:23 UTC
Originally submitted by E. L. (elwp)  2003-12-19 20:34

In OutputPage::replaceVariables the MSG(NW) variables
are replaced only after the other variables. But it
would be useful to allow user defined messages that
refer to these other variables. 

This is not a theoretical problem. On the German Main
Page we'd like to let the "selected articles" block be
editable by all users, and thus we moved it to the
MediaWiki namespace, but it contains {{CURRENTDAY}} and

I don't think that the required rearrangement in
"replaceVariables" would have any undesired side effects.

I'm not sure I understand this bug.

* What exactly is the problem?
* What are you expecting this modification to accomplish?
* What are the "other variables" you are referring to?
Comment 2 Wil Mahan 2004-09-30 20:44:47 UTC
At the time this bug was filed, it seems it was not possible to include a magic
variable like {{CURRENTDAY}} inside a template. MediaWiki has long sine been
changed to recursively expand variables and other templates inside templates
(which no longer require a msg: prefix or reside in the MediaWiki namespace). So
I'm marking this as fixed.
