Description Wikipedia:en:User:Paddu 2004-11-28 16:29:12 UTC
From en.wikipedia, a link with en: behaves like en: is discarded, i.e.
self-links are bolded & broken links are coloured red. But a link with w: always
shows up as a normal link. (Branched off from bug 938 comment 4).

Hallo!

The issue about self referencing links generated with self referencing interwiki
prefixes is covered at
Bug 4864: Evaluate self referencing interwiki prefixes
with additional examples ("m:" and others to come).

The links to non existing pages (which should render red according to this
request) generated with self referencing interwiki prefixes is *not* covered there.

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

Comment 3 This, that and the other (TTO) 2013-12-24 01:01:38 UTC
$wgLocalInterwiki can only take one value. On enwiki it is set to "en". Hence, "w" and "wikipedia" are not considered local interwikis, even though they are.

To fix this, I think we would need to be able to provide more than one value for $wgLocalInterwiki. I can't see that it would be a problem to optionally allow an array as well as a string for $wgLocalInterwiki, or to introduce a parallel config variable $wgLocalInterwikis (a la $wgSkipSkin[s]).

Or, even better, get rid of $wgLocalInterwiki altogether and make MW smart enough to know when an interwiki points back at the same wiki. But that would be quite hard and unnecessary.
