Description Borgx 2006-02-28 04:33:32 UTC
Just a minor one.
Sometimes when people copy an articles from wikipedia a to wikipedia b, they
forgot to remove the interwiki to wikipedia b. At wikipedia b, the interwiki is
broken (displayed like ordinary source text). Why dont treat that perticular
interwiki with bold and unclickable for example.
Comment 1 Borgx 2006-02-28 04:45:03 UTC
forget to mention that self-refering interwiki should be put at the left
language list (but unclickable and bold)
Comment 2 Melancholie 2006-03-01 14:49:19 UTC
Yes, this would be a good idea, because it really occurs pretty often, that
there is a broken interwiki link below the article text when the interwiki links
just have been copied (especially by newbies) from aWiki to bWiki.
Comment 3 Iaroslav Vassiliev 2007-01-04 23:38:18 UTC
I would suggest ignoring those self-referring links at all.
Comment 4 Roman Bekker 2007-01-07 11:39:01 UTC
I agree with Iaroslav.

Comment 6 Rich Farmbrough 2009-09-04 17:27:02 UTC
If this can't be implemented are there configuration options, setting the local language on the local table differently?
