Description Danny B. 2007-03-11 15:54:55 UTC
$wgCapitalLinks currently allows only global setting per site, it would be
useful to have it configurable per namespace.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-03-12 18:37:13 UTC
Can you give an example of where it would be useful? I worry that we'd be
introducing configuration cruft and complexifying the link code, not to mention
the editor's expectations could be potentially misinterpreted.
Comment 2 Danny B. 2007-03-12 22:44:53 UTC
Well, it may be narrowed to main ns and its talk only, because in fact it is
mostly the only place affected.

Some people (not me, just forwarding the feedback) are lazy to write with
capitals when linking to pages (in different namespaces) or including templates.
So you can often see links like [[help:foo]] instead of [[Help:Foo]] and {{bar}}
instead of {{Bar}}. Which doesn't mind on wikis with forcing capital, but does
there, where forcing is off.

In fact most useful place for having forcing off is only main ns, in other
places it may cause annoying of users. I thought that setting configurability
for one (+ talk) namespace would take same work as allowing it per all, that's
why i suggested per ns. But if it's easier to have it only for main ns + its
talk, do it that way. It still will be much better than current state.
