Description john.constantine 2005-12-15 22:11:40 UTC
Currently, in the Wikimedias, there is a box in the box-column 
on the left called "In other languages" with sometimes an awful 
overwhelming amount of inter-language links. It would be 
desirable for a user to be able to configure this box. 

A user could, for example, give a list of languages he is 
interested in in his preferences. This would reduce this list 
to only a few entries, which would allow the user to find the 
relevant links much more quickly.

Interwiki use a class like: 'interwiki-CODE' where code is the
interwiki shortcut.

So using the per user css, it would be possible to hide all links
and only show the one a user want.

In some wikipedias, some 'featured articles' are highlighted with a star in
front of the interlanguage links.
The code for it is in Monobook.js. I guess you can easily modify that code in a
way that suits your needs. 
Comment 3 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-12-23 17:49:04 UTC
INVALID, or something, you can already do this with your CSS and/or Javascript
file, we introduced that precisely so people could configure things like this.
