On en.wiki [[2005-02-20]] would turn into [[20 February]] []. I'd like
something like that for tr.wiki
I am not even certain why this fuction is not turned on wikimedia-wide.
DefaultSettings.php comment on the variable says:
/** Enable to allow rewriting dates in page text.
* DOES NOT FORMAT CORRECTLY FOR MOST LANGUAGES */
Beyond that, I can't tell you anything.

The feature was written to solve a long-running dispute on the English Wikipedia
over the preferred date format to use in article text, a dispute which I
understood was not present on the other projects. It initially had essentially
no internationalisation, although some was added later by Avar. The formats are
Oh there is no dispute over this on tr.wiki. I just find the syntax to be very
very conviniant (I can simply copy paste dates like this on large lists)
Is it possible to impliment this for tr.wiki?
As a native Tr speaker, this type of date feature is not necessary for any
project that is in Turkish Language. In Turkish language dates are not written
in "2006-03-20" format at all. (Maybe coders use this format for sorting
purposes) I am around tr wp last 2 years and I haven't seen any request or need
for this until Cool Cat's request. This enhancement may not harm user-end, but
as a bureaucrat and sysop of tr:wp, I should add that, this bug submissions does
not reflect Turkish community request. It is only Cool Cats personal request.
GAH! 2006-03-20 is the ISO format. No one writes dates like that.
I withdraw my request. Tr.wiki is simply not worth my time.
On careful rethinking I think this would be a useful addition to the wiki.
Please provide a link to an on-wiki-discussion about this, showing community consensus that this feature should be added.
