Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-11-28 20:04:31 UTC

This is a special case of
Bug 2030: anomalies in the "Navigation" menue while selecting a different
language interface in [[Special:Preferences]]
and its duplicate
Bug 4088: preserve navigation and toolbox links regardless of select user interface

The screen dump ilustrates
the problem. If you want to reproduce the mentioned behaviour log in at and select 'he' as user intrface.

What happened:*checkout*/wikipedia/phase3/languages/LanguageHe.php
shows that
"currentevents" => "-",
is the "MediaWiki default value" for 'he'.

To my understanding when changing the interface to another language *available
translations* for "titles" from the navigation and toolbox (defined in
[[MediaWiki:Sidebar]]) should be displayed.

What works until now: If no translation exists the untranslated "title" from the
"MediaWiki:Sidebar" is preserved.

What should be changed: A translation as "-" should be regarded as "invalid". To
my understanding it should not mather if it comes from the LanguageXx.php file
or from a "local" MediaWiki:Foo/xx as (which is
not the case at ).

You should never use "-" for the link _text_. Set it for the link _target_ to disable it.

The older code was not very consistent about this, but with multiple language selection it 
has to be this way.

Resolved Invalid – it's not a bug. (By the way, "currentevents" is now fixed.)

This is a configuration / validation issue. Thanks for the fix in
MessagesHe.php. However some other languages would generate "-" in navigation:
