Description elephantus 2006-01-04 23:43:13 UTC
Parameter replacement ($1, $2...) in MediaWiki messages happens only after the
parsing of the message is done (incl. expansion of templates and functions
invoked through template syntax, eg {{plural:number|x|y|z}}). This means that
message parameters can't be used as function arguments, which would be very
useful in messages like "categoryarticlecount" and similar. Could the parsing be
somehow moved after the parameter replacement?

What do you mean "function arguments" ?

Eg {{plural:$1|one|two|three}}

I don't know is this problem is fixed exactly as in this bug
description/patches, but PLURAL: works correctly in 1.7alpha (r14284).

Bug 3704 is definitely fixed.
