Wikimedia Bugzilla is closed!

Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

Description David E. Siegel 2005-11-11 18:04:45 UTC
(I am copying this from the en.wikipedia general complaints page at 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:General_complaints#Getting_pnm:_RealA
udio_links_to_work_in_Wikipedia>. It seems like a reasonable request to me. -

Normally, if you put a URL: resource address in [brackets] the wiki server 
side process will properly format a buried link for the browser. However, 
there are many more URL: resource addresses than just those that begin 
with "http:". For example, the wiki server side process does not properly 
format the following [pnm://rm.content.loudeye.com/~a-
600111/0676330_0104_07_0002.ra URL: resource], as you can see. If you paste 
the URL: resource address

pnm://rm.content.loudeye.com/~a-600111/0676330_0104_07_0002.ra

into your browser address window, you will see from the browser reaction how 
the wiki server side process should format that pnm: URL: resource address 
as a link in the above examples. Could you please add pnm: to the table of 
allowed external URL: resource prefixes, such as http:, https:, ftp:, etc.? 
Thank you. ---Rednblu 20:17, 29 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Tweaking summary and reclassifying as a configuration issue.
Comment 2 Daniel Kinzler 2005-11-11 20:00:02 UTC
he's asking for this to be added to the config of the en wikipedia, i guess.
Without strong support from the community, this is probably not likely to be
done, however. I see nothing but the request on the WP, no discussion, no comments.
Comment 3 David E. Siegel 2005-11-11 23:12:44 UTC
I found this on the General Complaints page, in the course of archiving 
sections of that page. it seemed like a reasopnable idea to me, so i posted 
it to the Village pump and created a bugzilla entry for it, so that anyoen 
favoring it could point to the same entry. I am not sure at what level such 
a feature would best be implemented. There may be followup discussion on 
the pump, one way or the other.

Give us a permalink to the diff or version of the page with discussion on it,
please, for reference.

Comment 6 Brion Vibber 2006-02-22 21:02:33 UTC
For something nonstandard I would generally recommend using an http: or https: link to a web 
page hosting the resource (which pretty much always exists for such things). Not only is the 
web page more likely to have a stable URL, but it'll likely provide links to the required 
supporting software.
