Introducing 'allpagesprefix' (1.62 KB, patch)
2005-09-15 08:22 UTC, Henning Heitkötter
Unified Patch (2.85 KB, patch)
2005-10-12 15:50 UTC, Henning Heitkötter

Description Henning Heitkötter 2005-09-15 08:21:28 UTC
Special:Allpages and Special:Prefixindex both use MediaWiki-Message
'allpagesfrom' (default: "Display pages starting at:") for labelling the input
field 'nsfrom'. As these specialpages perform different search queries, the
input in this field has a different meaning in each case: Allpages lists all
pages with a title >= $from, while Prefixindex narrows the result on pages
*beginning* with $from (LIKE $from%).
Therefore they should use different MediaWiki messages, so that the difference
becomes obvious for the user.

Patch follows.

Introducing 'allpagesprefix'

This patch provides the described behaviour. Both classes SpecialAllpages and
SpecialPrefixindex get a class variable $nsfromMsg determing the
MediaWiki-message to use, used by namespaceForm(). Allpages uses
'allpagesfrom', Prefixindex the new 'allpagesprefix' (In Language.php, already
translated for German).
The change requires a rebuildMessages.php --update because of the new message.
