Description Dan Jacobson 2007-09-05 11:53:47 UTC
The challenge: create an account on , change
the language (介面語言) to English in your preferences, then hope to see the
navigation of pages in English. You know, the same effect as uselang=en.

It won't work.
You'll have to logout first even if you want to see e.g.,
in English mode.

Purging won't help. P.S. my  字體變換 choice was zh-tw (no "en" to
choose from there.)

Tried logging out/back in. Nothing cached at my end too.
Comment 1 Dan Jacobson 2007-09-05 11:58:54 UTC
P.S.: My home wiki doesn't act that way, then again it doesn't have the 5 different choices of 字體變換 Chinese variants -- where the problem must lie. I.e., ZH Wikipedia probably assumes all _logged in_ users wan't navigation in Chinese.
Whereas plain MediaWiki does not have this problem.
