Description Omegatron 2006-03-21 22:04:00 UTC
Currently, navigating through history of user contributions or a page, there are
"Earliest" and "Latest" links.  To get to the earliest links manually, you go to
"Next 50".  To get to the later contributions, you click "Previous 50".   Next
should be renamed Earlier, and Previous should be renamed Later.

See [[MediaWiki:Prevn]] and [[MediaWiki:Nextn]] for this issue.
Comment 2 Melancholie 2006-03-22 01:50:09 UTC
You should contact the sysops on your wiki. They will change the messages if
they consider this a good idea; see [[Wikipedia:Village_pump]]
Comment 3 Omegatron 2006-03-22 02:15:38 UTC
Oh!  I am one.  I'll ask on the pump.
Comment 4 Omegatron 2006-04-07 01:47:15 UTC
This is not fixable by just editing the Mediawiki message.  The message is
intended for translation purposes, and so it changes every instance of
"next/previous" to "earlier/later", including the ones that *should be*

So this is a real bug.  The messages for chronological listings (the ones that
have "(Latest | Earliest)") need to be given their own Mediawiki message so they
can be changed to say "(Latest | Earliest) View (later 50) (earlier 50)"
Comment 5 Quiddity 2006-04-07 02:54:11 UTC
I agree that this needs to be fixed.
Comment 6 Niklas Laxström 2006-04-11 14:42:37 UTC
Resolving as duplicate of 4777, because fixing it will fix this too.
