Description Platonides 2006-04-19 21:01:47 UTC
I noticed this at wikipedia with MediaWiki:Uploadtext & Special:Upload but other
Special pages may be affected too.

When i set at the message <nowiki>{{template}}</nowiki>, (showing ok at the
normal rendering) the special page renders it as _including_ it and then
treating it as nowiki, instead of nowikiing the template name.

Thus the internal template code was shown on the page, including tags as
<noinclude> and <includeonly>.

This can be workarounded using <nowiki>{{</nowiki>template<nowiki>}}</nowiki>.

I still seeing this in MediaWiki 1.9alpha (r17555).

For me, not only MediaWiki:Uploadtext, but I tried it on MediaWiki:Newimages.
Could it just be the whole MediaWiki namespace?
Comment 4 Rob Church 2006-12-31 05:07:21 UTC
Yes and no. The problem is due to the handling we use for wikitext messages
(I've explained it better in another bug here), and will have to be addressed on
a message-per-message basis, unless we do something drastic.

Is this still an open issue?
Comment 6 Platonides 2011-02-06 22:45:34 UTC
