List of static pages referenced by Messages.php (rev. 14288) (1.96 KB, text/plain)
2006-05-21 14:02 UTC, Broken Arrow

Description Broken Arrow 2006-05-21 14:01:16 UTC
The system messages assume that several non-special pages exist, most of them in
"Project" namespace.

I suggest checking for duplicates or non-relevant links before compiling a list
of pages that should be created or modified after installing MediaWiki, if no
standard content is provided for them. Examples of things that might be changed:

* Links to both [[{{ns:project}}:Protected_page]] &
* Links to specific pages in ns0: [[IP address]]

Also, the external links should reviewed (esp. Meta vs. MediaWiki).

Attaching a list from the current version of Messages.php.

Hi Broken Arrow!

There was already a discussion about {{int:mainpage}} -> [[Main Page]] either
here in MediaZilla or on one of the mailing lists.

[[Current events]] used in: currentevents-url
[[IP address]] used in: anontalkpagetext, etc.
you are mentioning in

I would suggest to have these pages located in the project namespace. So 
[[Current events]] should be [[Project:Current events]] and
[[IP address]] should be [[Project:IP address]]

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

Bug #8846 provides a patch that fixes large parts of the problems described here. See there for details.
Comment 4 Niklas Laxström 2009-01-31 21:45:48 UTC
I think we have pretty much nailed down the unnecessary links.
