Description Pablo Saratxaga 2006-06-12 14:29:44 UTC
Here are some improvemetns for multilingual sites (like commons)
Comment 1 Pablo Saratxaga 2006-06-12 14:35:57 UTC
Created attachment 1940 [details]
creates a {{USERLANGUAGE}} variable to tell the user language (it is the pendant to the {{CONTENTLANGUAGE}} existing in svn)

This patch adds a {{USERLANGUAGE}} to tell the suer language (either trough
preferences or uselang= parameter)

It is most usefull on multilingual wikies, like commons:, meta:, etc.

For example, in commons, the curent {{GFDL}} licence template could be moved to
{{GFDL-en}}, and a new {{GFDL}} template be written as this:

------------
{{#ifexist:Template:GFDL-{{USERLANGUAGE}}|{{GFDL-{{USERLANGUAGE}}}}|{{GFDL-en}}}}

<includeonly>[[Category:GFDL|{{PAGENAME}}]]</includeonly>
-------------

That is, it will include, if it exists, the template in the user language, if
not, in English.
As a lot of translations for templates and other pages exists, a way to
automatically choose the right one will be very usefull.
This patch allows this by providing a variable showing the user language

Comment 2 Pablo Saratxaga 2006-06-12 14:54:22 UTC
Created attachment 1941 [details]
allows headings showing in user language in image description pages

This patch is mostly useful for multilingual sites, like commons:

It allows the image description files to have the headers created at upload
time to be like:

== {{int:filedesc}} ==

that is, the page doesn't use a translation in a given language, but references
the message id and so it will show in the user language, whatever language it
may be.

It is only active if there is in LocalSettings.php a line like this:

$wgIsMultilingual = true;

so it doesn't have any effect on non multilingual wikis.
Comment 3 Pablo Saratxaga 2006-06-12 15:02:21 UTC
you can see a page using {{int:filedesc}} (done manually) at
[[commons:Image:Locusts_feeding.jpg]], if you open it with url parameter
uselang=xx you should see the headings in the language (if you have already
opened the page, you may need alsot to purge it)
