Description Michael Keppler 2005-04-30 12:18:47 UTC
The skin system includes site wide user defined JavaScript by including the
message <Skinname>.js into the output (e.g. the content of the <Monobook.js>
message is included in the output for Monobook users). For user defined skins
this message does not exist in most cases.

Besides having the administrators or the skin developers define that message
(which is both error prone), there are two solutions to avoid the bug:
* Define an empty message for each skin in the Language class (or in the
* Don't include the message into output, if it has only the fallback message
content (and is not defined)

The attached patch implements the second solution described above: When
generating the user JS output it checks if the message is defined and avoids
the message output if not defined.

Um, I think I entirely forgot the JavaScript error message in the problem
report. The generated JavaScript file looks like this:

/* generated javascript */var skin = 'reduced';
var stylepath = '/development/skins';/* MediaWiki:Reduced */

The problem can be seen in the third line, where the default message text
occurs, which is no valid JavaScript.
