Description Alon Lischinsky 2005-09-26 18:36:46 UTC
Some system messages are missing from the list in
[[:commons:Special:Allmessages]]. At least [[:commons:MediaWiki:Licenses]] and
[[:commons:MediaWiki:Goodies]] do not appear in it.

*Special:Allmessages* will (probably) only show the messages that are supposed
to be included / translated in LanguageXx.php.

When selecting *Special:Allpages* and namespace MediaWiki with
the *additional* pages / records will be shown.

What might be interesting for the "namespace MediaWiki Special:Allpages" would
be somthing similar to
bug 2318: Special:Allpages should mark redirects distinctly

Maybe colors would be a nice attribute to show if messages are standard
MediaWiki messages (modified or not):

- one color for non-modified MediaWiki messages
- another color for modified MediaWiki messages
- another for MediaWiki messages defined "localy" in this wiki

Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-10-02 09:42:00 UTC
additional remark

It would be quite helpfull if [[Special:Allmessages]] could show that message
translations for additional languages are available. This would provide a better
picture about what happens if other language interfaces are selected.

see Alon's examples at
bug 3553: Not all system messages are language-customizable in the Commons interface

This could be achieved with an additional parameter in the querry (showing
results / messages as done until now or showing also the addional /xx messages -
intended in the table).

*** Bug 3606 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 4 Tim Starling 2006-01-06 14:00:20 UTC
This is a bug with the extensions that use the messages without defining a
default for them. Pages in the MediaWiki namespace without any associated UI
function should not be displayed in [[Special:Allmessages]].
Comment 5 Joanot Martorell 2006-02-22 10:28:57 UTC
The content on [[:Commons:MediaWiki:Contact-link|MediaWiki:Contact-link]] in
other languages, such as
[[:Commons:MediaWiki:Contact-link/es|MediaWiki:Contact-link/es]], from Commons
doesn't change the link to each language version of [[:Commons:Commons:Contact
us|Commons:Contact us]]. In adding,
[[:Commons:MediaWiki:Contact-link|MediaWiki:Contact]] and
[[:Commons:MediaWiki:Contact-link|MediaWiki:Contact-link]] aren't being shown in
the list of system messages from
[[:Commons:Special:Allmessages|Special:Allmessages]], nor in each other languages.

I'm supposing that this bug would be also related to wfMsgForContent function.
And yes, I consider it as a bug, not an simply "configuration" subject.

Please, make MediaWiki capable to be multilingual for one site.

Comment 6 Niklas Laxström 2007-11-30 14:46:33 UTC
I fail to see what is the problem in this bug that should be fixed. Special:Allmessages displays all messages that are used by MediaWiki *code* or by extensions, but not any other messages.
