Description Purodha Blissenbach 2011-02-14 11:08:01 UTC
Translatable pages having a footer "This page was last modified on …" display a date/time unrelated to the translated content.

Better show the date/time of the last change of the most recently edited
component of a translated page rather than that of the (normally much older)
base page. I believe, users would interpret "latest change" pertaining to the translated text.
Comment 1 Krinkle 2011-02-14 11:24:35 UTC
Changing component and summary.
This message is loaded in the "content language" by the core, not by the extension.
This affects multi-lingual wikis such as Commons as well.

The message is "MediaWiki:Lastmodifiedat" and, if there are no other problems, could simple be gotten got 'user language' instead of msgForContent.
Comment 3 Siebrand Mazeland 2011-02-14 11:58:36 UTC
Adding keyword easy, but needs review because of possible parser cache consequences.
Comment 4 Purodha Blissenbach 2011-02-15 01:33:50 UTC
@ Krinkle: I think, you completely misunderstood the bug report. Reposting the
 original as bug 27422
@ Siebrand: that's the reason why I did not try to solve the original issue -
 I do not know enough of the workings of the parser cache to be sure, not to
 screw it somehow.
Comment 5 Sumana Harihareswara 2011-11-09 02:47:37 UTC
Removing the "need-review" keyword because that is for bugs that have code patches that need review, and I do not see one attached.  Adding "parser" per comment 3 -- I might be wrong there.

For contributors (as there is the "easy" keyword): Skin.php is nowadays in under mediawiki/core/includes. Credits.php might be mediawiki/core/includes/actions/CreditsAction.php nowadays.
