Description とある白い猫 2006-08-26 14:31:49 UTC
On [[2005-02-20]]  would turn into [[20 February]] [[2005]]. I'd like
something like that for

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.

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 
still hard-coded.
Comment 3 とある白い猫 2006-08-27 14:21:46 UTC
Oh there is no dispute over this on 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 
Comment 4 Dbl2010 2006-09-12 03:21:57 UTC
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. 
Comment 5 とある白い猫 2006-09-12 03:30:40 UTC
GAH! 2006-03-20 is the ISO format. No one writes dates like that. 
Comment 6 とある白い猫 2006-09-12 03:39:47 UTC
I withdraw my request. is simply not worth my time.
Comment 7 とある白い猫 2008-03-01 14:12:56 UTC
On careful rethinking I think this would be a useful addition to the wiki.
Comment 8 JeLuF 2008-08-10 09:18:40 UTC
Please provide a link to an on-wiki-discussion about this, showing community consensus that this feature should be added.
Comment 9 Andre Klapper 2012-11-17 13:59:26 UTC
[Replacing "RESOLVED LATER" by a more appropriate status.]
