Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-10-26 14:26:12 UTC

It seams that for some historical reasons messages are contained in the template


You will see that [[Special:Allmessages]] contains only a part of the
*accesskey-* and *tooltip-* messages. This does not make translations easier.

Please concentrate *accesskey-* and *tooltip-* messages in one namespace only;
include all relevant messages also in [[Special:Allmessages]].

Other messages might be affected as well: [[MediaWiki:Sitesupportpage]]
redirects to [[Template:Sitesupportpage]]. Compare also with .

Best regards Reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]
Comment 1 Niklas Laxström 2005-10-26 14:33:04 UTC
Only about ten accesskey and tooltips are used in Mediawiki-namespace, others
are directly in Mediawiki:monobook.js. All the others are not used. Especially
nothing should be in template namespace and I think they can deleted safely,
unless used for other purposes??.

Here is the list that is pulled from Mediawiki-namespace (or language file)
# Keyboard access keys for power users
'accesskey-search' => 'f',
'accesskey-minoredit' => 'i',
'accesskey-save' => 's',
'accesskey-preview' => 'p',
'accesskey-diff' => 'v',
'accesskey-compareselectedversions' => 'v',

# tooltip help for some actions, most are in Monobook.js
'tooltip-search' => 'Search {{SITENAME}} [alt-f]',
'tooltip-minoredit' => 'Mark this as a minor edit [alt-i]',
'tooltip-save' => 'Save your changes [alt-s]',
'tooltip-preview' => 'Preview your changes, please use this before saving! [alt-p]',
'tooltip-diff' => 'Show which changes you made to the text. [alt-d]',
'tooltip-compareselectedversions' => 'See the differences between the two
selected versions of this page. [alt-v]',
'tooltip-watch' => 'Add this page to your watchlist [alt-w]',
