Description Nadav Perez 2006-02-20 16:19:40 UTC
Wiki code is needed there - especially for redirecting people to the same page
on the commons.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2006-02-20 17:43:52 UTC
Please be more specific. Wiki code where? This bug report makes little or no
sense without some context. Please read for tips on how to ask smart
Comment 2 Nadav Perez 2006-02-20 20:40:49 UTC
sorry. let me try again:
[[:he:Special:Filepath]] does not allow wiki code - wiki code enetered on
[[:he:MediaWiki:Filepath page]] apear as-is - double square brackets do not
become a link. (I used he as an example - it should be the same everywhere)
this is espcially needed because the Filepath option does not give commons
filepath, and we want to link to the same page there.
am I clearer now?
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2006-02-20 20:55:56 UTC
Changed summary.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2006-02-20 20:58:36 UTC
On further inspection, there is no such message; hewiki is trying
to abuse the form field label as a paragraph-length text.

A text message would need to be added.
Comment 5 Nadav Perez 2006-02-26 19:40:39 UTC
any chance it would happen?
Comment 6 assafkat 2006-02-26 19:43:59 UTC
We want to write a message that contains explanations want the meaning of the
result. So, the answer that the message is form field label isn't helpful for
us, and from our point of view this is a bug.
Comment 7 Rob Church 2006-02-26 20:25:14 UTC
Added to extension in CVS. Message customisable via MediaWiki:Filepath_instructions.
Comment 8 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2006-02-26 20:35:16 UTC
Comment 9 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2006-02-26 20:37:06 UTC
RESOLVED INVALID and reverted the change in CVS, there's no need to add a custom
message to each special page to do this (although in the case of extensions you
need to call a special function) because we already have a general mechanism to
do this, just edit MediaWiki:Filepath-summary
