Description Tisza Gergő 2013-10-24 20:03:10 UTC
When viewing a local file, the link to the image description page says "Learn more on <wiki name>" which sounds a bit strange given that I am there already. Just "Learn more" would be better IMO.
Comment 1 Fabrice Florin 2013-10-28 18:17:35 UTC
Hi Gergo, good suggestion. Yes, let's remove the site name when you are already on that site, and just say 'Learn more', as you propose. Great catch!

Had a contributor contact me saying they wanted to take a crack - let's watch! :)

As did I. The real issue here is bug 40497.

Hi Durga, some links to help you finding the pieces needed to fix and test this bug report:

About Media Viewer:

The Media Viewer as deployed in Wikimedia can be tested by enabling "Beta features"in

You should install the extension in your development environment and find the problem Tisza is reporting. Then find the string mentioned by Tisza in the extension files and modify it as he is requesting. Test the result in your environment and, if you are happy with the result, propose your patch via Gerrit.

You fixed your first report by uploading the path in Bugzilla, which was good enough for a newcomer. Now the next step is to learn to do it the right way through Gerrit. You will like it.  :)

If you have questions, please ask here in the bug report itself, or in #wikimedia-dev IRC. 

Thank you for your interest in improving Media Viewer and good luck!

It should be slightly more complex then that: right now we have a single "Learn
more on <wiki name>" message, which should be split into a "Learn more on <wiki name>" for remotely hosted images and a "Learn
more" for locally hosted images. So you need to add another message, find a way to figure out if the image is local or not (it should be somewhere in the data returned by the API), and select the right message depending on that.
Comment 7 Mark Holmquist 2013-11-20 00:06:37 UTC
Was there any progress on this?
Comment 8 Durga 2013-12-05 12:17:22 UTC
I had submitted the patch, there was an error in the first patch, it was a syntax error, so I had submitted another patch.
Comment 9 Andre Klapper 2013-12-05 12:20:14 UTC
Durga: A link to the submitted patch would be highly welcome. 
(A link to a patch in Gerrit would get automatically added in Bugzilla when following )
Comment 10 Tisza Gergő 2013-12-05 12:32:29 UTC
Also, please don't start a new patch when you need to modify something. See "Amending a change" in the Gerrit tutorial [1] on how to modify an existing patch.

And when you do discard an old patch, please use the "Abandon change" button in Gerrit so the system can know that no one intends to work on it anymore.

Comment 11 Andre Klapper 2013-12-05 15:16:11 UTC
For the records, previous patches that need rework: and
See comment 9 and comment 10 for instructions on Gerrit usage.

Patch -
Comment 13 Durga 2013-12-06 08:05:41 UTC
Could anyone please tell me where the changes are to be made? I thought it has to be done in the i18n.php file
Comment 14 Andre Klapper 2013-12-06 10:21:32 UTC
Druga: My understanding of this (disclaimer: I am not a developer):

Don't redefine the value of the string variable multimediaviewer-repository in MultimediaViewer.i18n.php. Comment 6 here says "you need to add another message". Find where in the code (not: MultimediaViewer.i18n.php) "multimediaviewer-repository" is called and add the if check there.
Comment 15 Tisza Gergő 2013-12-06 13:11:31 UTC
As Andre says. Note also that $1 in i18n.php files does not get magically replaced (that only happens with $1 inside a string). The i18n.php file is a normal PHP file (which must return an array of message name => text); your changes would simply result in a syntax error.
Comment 16 Bawolff (Brian Wolff) 2013-12-19 07:05:40 UTC
Durga: Are you still interested in pursuing this? If not, I think apsdehal wants to take a crack at it.
Comment 17 Gerrit Notification Bot 2013-12-19 07:10:08 UTC

Should this bug be marked resolved/fixed now?

It should! Thanks for pointing it out.
