regular patch for CVS-HEAD to show the tagline and allowing wikified texts and links (1.40 KB, patch)
2005-12-13 00:22 UTC, T. Gries

Description T. Gries 2005-12-05 22:08:00 UTC
For several applications I need the possibility to have [[Internal]] and
[] links rendered in [[MediaWiki:Tagline]] strings.

Currently, this is not the case.

For me it looks like a bug, because the other similar message
[[MediaWiki:sitenotice]] which is shown above the page title, allows both
[[Internal]] and [] links !

> ... For me it looks like a bug, ...

This is "how it is". MediaWiki messages are / can be handeled differently. I
experienced this for many messages. The only way to find it out is to look in
the php code, to use the trial and error method *and* to hope that the message
will not be handeled differently in comming releases.

This is at least the *third* bug report on that topic during the last three
days. I proposed some times ago
Bug 2453: [[Special:Allmessages]] should provide information about the type of
the MediaWiki message

A common table with these types could help
a) to generate this type information in [[Special:Allmessages]]
b) to use common functions where this additional information is implemented /
updated consitently.

Comment 2 T. Gries 2005-12-08 23:35:16 UTC
can someone _please_ fix that problem, that tagline does neither allow HTML nor
Wiki-syntax links ?
I need that working
Comment 3 Rob Church 2005-12-09 08:01:36 UTC
You selected 1.5-cvs. Is it fixed in HEAD?
Comment 4 T. Gries 2005-12-11 23:06:03 UTC
is a duplicate description of Comment #8 in bugzilla 3208

When can we expect to have this solved ?

Rob, i just checked this for MediaWiki:tagline : NOT fixed in HEAD, i.e. wiki
syntax in tagline is ignored. Should be pleased solved -- who can solve this and
similar inconsistently not working wiki formatting in certain message text ?

For those who need [[MediaWiki:tagline]] messages with HTML and Wiki-formatted texts (which is currently not 
possible), the attached very simple patch is suggested for CVS-HEAD and similar products: 
change line 84 (or search for 'tagline') 
	<h3 id="siteSub"><?php $this->msg('tagline') ?></h3> 
	<h3 id="siteSub"><?php $this->msgWiki('tagline') ?></h3> 
I will submit a regular patch as soon as the cvs access to is working again (which is currently not the 
case for me for an unknown reason). 
I also ask the experts to review my patch - if it could negative side effects
