Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-02-10 19:08:28 UTC

The transclusion of MediaWiki messages from MessagesXx.php, from the "require
once" "parent language", from Messages.php (etc.) is a great improuvement and
obsoletes the "job" of [[special:Contributions/MediaWiki_default]].

It would be a great improuvement if the "predefined" templates {{int:}},
{{msg:}}, {{msgnw:}} could handle transcluded MediaWiki messages the same way as
local MediaWiki messages.

If there is a preference to use a gray background (as configured for
protectected pages at  [[en:MediaWiki:Minoredit) this would be fine to
distinguisch them.

More test links:
and their related categories.

Transcluded MediaWiki messages form a new class of message. The color
distinction blue / red does not cover these exactly. But this is another issue.

Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-02-10 19:40:30 UTC
a) At
{{msgnw:MediaWiki:{{PAGENAME}}}} generates the text [[MediaWiki:Minoredit]]
(*without* rendering) and not the content of the "transcluded MediaWiki message".

b) At
{{msgnw:MediaWiki:{{PAGENAME}}}} generates

    * mainpage|mainpage
    * recentchanges-url|recentchanges
    * randompage-url|randompage
    * Sandbox|Sandbox
because this message is "local to the wiki".

"transcluded MediaWiki message" as in example a) should render in {{msgnw:}} the
same way as messages "local to the wiki" as in example b).

Someone remind me the point of transcluding interface text?
