Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-02-11 11:38:56 UTC

Found this bug at bug 4812 comment 1.

[[Special:Prefixindex/S:]] should be an acurate search. There is a goody
described in bug 4944 comment 1.

I tried [[sv:Special:Prefixindex/S:]] where 's:' is no interwiki prefix and all
others: [[b:sv:Special:Prefixindex/S:]], [[n:sv:Special:Prefixindex/S:]],
[[q:sv:Special:Prefixindex/S:]], [[s:sv:Special:Prefixindex/S:]],

I also tried I tried [[sv:Special:Allpages/S:]] where 's:' is no interwiki
prefix and all others: [[b:sv:Special:Allpages/S:]],
[[n:sv:Special:Allpages/S:]], [[q:sv:Special:Allpages/S:]],
[[s:sv:Special:Allpages/S:]], [[wikt:sv:Special:Allpages/S:]].

While [[s:sv:Special:Prefixindex/S:]] does *not* display pages the
sisterprojects where 's:' is a interwiki prefix displays a list of pages; see
also [[b:sv:Special:Prefixindex/w:]] are showing all pages like
[[special:Allpages/!]] (not [[special:Allpages]].

[[s:de:Special:Prefixindex/S:]] differs from [[b:de:Special:Allpages/S:]] and 
[[s:ro:Special:Prefixindex/S:]] differs from [[b:ro:Special:Allpages/S:]].

I suggest to use a new MediaWiki message telling that 's:' is an interwiki prefix.

The examples from above and [[special:Allpages/w:]] are showing all pages like
[[special:Allpages/!]] (not [[special:Allpages]]).

However [[s:sv:special:Allpages/S:]] (also [[s:de:special:Allpages/S:]] and
[[s:ro:special:Allpages/S:]] ) behaves as [[special:Allpages/S!]].

An informsative message would be usefull here as well. It might be more helpfull
to show always [[Special:Allpages/W%3B]] (or [[wikt:Special:Allpages/w%3B]] if

All tests are made in the main namespace.
works fine.

Handling of characters which are invalid in titles inside the 'Display pages
with prefix:' box inside [[special:Prefixindex]] and [[special:Allpages]] is not
covered by the summary. See
