Description Tisza Gergő 2009-06-03 22:53:22 UTC
Search results from the sister projects now have captions like " results", which is not very helpful for non-English projects: few people know about the smaller projects, and the user might not be able to figure out from the English domain name, what that project is about. If possible, the localized project names should be used instead.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2009-06-23 00:00:15 UTC
Robert, is a friendlier site name something we can easily get at here?
Comment 2 Robert Stojnic 2009-06-23 03:54:07 UTC
Yes, in fact, this is why a message 'search-interwiki-custom' exists, although no-one seems to figured it out. Its format is: <iwprefix>:<caption> per line, so for english wikipedia it should be put to something like:

wikt:Wiktionary word definitions
s:Wikisource results
n:Wikinews results
q:Wikiquote results
v:Wikiversity results
b:Wikibooks results

and these will appear instead of the default sitenames. 
Comment 3 Niklas Laxström 2009-06-23 06:41:33 UTC
Shouldn't those be added to WikimediaMessages extension... to have some defaults and raise awareness?
Comment 4 Robert Stojnic 2009-06-23 08:36:25 UTC
Yeah, that seems like a good idea.
