Description Patrick Collison 2006-01-23 18:09:12 UTC
When the view count of a page=1, the associated "viewcount" string in the translation is still in plural form, so you end up with something like "This page has 
been accessed 1 times". Minor, but pretty easy to fix. Easiest fix may be to add a second translation string, e.g. viewcount_s (for singular) that's used when 
Comment 1 Edward Z. Yang 2006-01-24 21:33:01 UTC
Note that by editing [[MediaWiki:Viewcount]], you can simply put "time(s)".
Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-01-26 22:41:57 UTC

This is similar to [[MediaWiki:Categories]] and 

Some LanguagesXx.php support {{PLURAL:foo}}.

If [[MediaWiki:Viewcount]] suports wikitext why not use 
This page has been accessed $1 {{PLURAL:$1|time}}.
or {{PLURAL:time|$1}} depending on the syntax.

I tried patching mw trunk using the following patch:

Index: languages/Messages.php
--- languages/Messages.php      (revision 13910)
+++ languages/Messages.php      (working copy)
@@ -211,7 +211,7 @@
 'redirectedfrom' => '(Redirected from $1)',
 'redirectpagesub' => 'Redirect page',
 'lastmodified' => 'This page was last modified $1.',
-'viewcount'            => 'This page has been accessed $1 times.',
+'viewcount'            => 'This page has been accessed $1
 'copyright'    => 'Content is available under $1.',
 'protectedpage' => 'Protected page',
 'administrators' => 'Project:Administrators',

But it didnt work! (always showing 'times').
Comment 4 Niklas Laxström 2006-04-29 14:06:27 UTC
Should be fixed in the trunk now, thanks to help of Ashar.
Comment 5 Rich Farmbrough 2007-01-16 15:09:55 UTC
I have put 
This page has been accessed {{plural:$1|once|$1 times}}.
as a slight improvement, although we don't see it.

Ideally a little work with expr: would give a robust soln.
