Description Jesse (Pathoschild) 2006-03-07 22:49:45 UTC
Interwiki links to Wikisource from Wikisource do not function correctly.
<nowiki>[[s:Main page]]</nowiki>, for example, leads to
<u>/wiki/S:Main_page</u>. The usual response is to drop the prefix and load
<u>/wiki/Main_page</u>. 

To reproduce this bug, see the link on [[s:User:Pathoschild/Sandbox3]]. The link
on [[w:User:Pathoschild/Sandbox5]] is the usual response.
Comment 1 Jesse (Pathoschild) 2006-03-07 22:57:12 UTC
Note that the link to the Wikipedia sandbox fails because it apparently doesn't
drop the prefix (although interwiki links from Wikipedia do). The fixed link is
[[User:Pathoschild/Sandbox5]].
Comment 2 Jesse (Pathoschild) 2010-03-29 00:08:59 UTC
Interwiki prefixes to the same wiki behave inconsistently.

URL prefixes to a different wiki always work:
> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/m:Sandbox
> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/w:Sandbox
> http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/s:Sandbox

URL prefixes to the same wiki fail in one of two ways:
> with error: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/m:Sandbox
> silently: http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/s:Sandbox

Wikilink prefixes to the same wiki fail on some wikis, work on others:
> works: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Pathoschild/Sandbox?oldid=1914477
> fails: http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/User:Pathoschild/Sandbox?oldid=1832527
Comment 3 This, that and the other (TTO) 2014-02-05 07:00:59 UTC
There are a couple of different issues here:

* [[s:Foo]] isn't recognised on Wikisource, etc. A solution to bug 955,
  accompanied by a change to the Wikimedia interwiki scripts and an edit to
  InitialiseSettings.php, would fix this.

* [[m:Foo]] gives a bad title error. This could be fixed by adjusting
  $wgLocalInterwiki in InitialiseSettings.php, which I will proceed to submit
  a patch for.

That should be reverted, the m: prefix is used to produce interoperable links to Meta-Wiki pages which will work on any wiki including Meta-Wiki itself. That's no longer working.

Could you explain *exactly* what was going wrong while this patch was in place?

Nemo? Tap tap on the shoulder?

The links in question were not rendered at all, as if included in nowiki tags.
Comment 11 This, that and the other (TTO) 2014-03-17 11:24:18 UTC
Thanks. It looks like bug 61357 was the problem. 

I'm sorry that I didn't realise that this would be a problem - look at the timestamps of comment 8 and bug 61357 comment 0, you'd think I'd have been smart enough to work it out myself!
