Description brianna.laugher 2007-01-22 05:39:41 UTC
Although wikitext such as [[links]] show correctly when you edit the MediaWiki
page itself, they don't show correctly in actual usage.

You can prompt this error message by going to Special:Upload and changing the
destination filename to something without a file extension, or a disallowed
extension (like .mp3).
Comment 1 brianna.laugher 2007-01-22 06:46:49 UTC
It's also collapsing all whitespace which is not so useful.
Comment 2 brianna.laugher 2007-01-22 06:55:52 UTC
Also, a comment from http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki_talk:Badfiletype :
"It looks like $1 is never an empty string, even when you have no extension, yet
the html code of the page will not give the its value."

This is a problem because we want to user parser functions to account for two
distinct mistakes (no extension/bad extension) which both result in this error
warning, but we can't.
Comment 3 rami 2007-01-22 19:39:33 UTC
Or, simply parserfunctions might not be able to handle the $1 variable.
Comment 4 Raimond Spekking 2007-03-01 15:42:52 UTC
MediaWiki:Badfiletype splitted in r20100 into 3 new messages:

filetype-missing: for files without extension (wikisyntax enanbled)
filetype-badtype: for files of unwanted types. The list of enabled types will be
shown as $2 (wikisyntax enabled)
filetype-badmime: for invalid mime types (no wikisyntax)
