Description Dejan Papež 2006-05-16 11:41:19 UTC
For Slovenian Wikipedia and other Slovenian wikiprojects it would be very useful if 
the software allowed for: 

Entering up to five sentence forms functionally linked (as parameters of a magic 
word) with different numbers displayed by a chosen variable (or any "$n") that 
generates a number.

Description of the system with an example: 

In the Mediawiki:Sitestatstext message (or on any other page) the following sentence 
forms would be entered for the variable NUMBEROFFILES:

* one form for the number 0
* one form for the number 1
* one form for the number 2
* one form for the number 3
* one form for the number 4
* one form for the number 5; this form would be used also for any other higher number 
up to and including 100
* Then the cycle should start anew - repeat itself from the second form = the one 
used for number 1 - onwards. The form for number 0 should be used only once: for 
number 0.

I imagine these sentence forms and the chosen variable would be entered as parameters 
of a magic word (like 'plural' or something) and then displayed accordingly to the 
autogenerated number they are linked with and the rules described above. The solution 
should also allow entering less than five forms as they are not always different.


Slovenian language has three grammmatical numbers (singular, dual, plural) and six 
grammatical cases. These are obligatory for nouns, verbs, pronouns, adjectives. See

forms for numbers three and four are the same

Code committed in r14645
Comment 4 Dejan Papež 2006-06-08 19:01:45 UTC
I've tried using the PLURAL function in Slovenian Wikipedia after being notified
the bug has been fixed, but it seems that this bug has been fixed incorrectly.

* <nowiki>{{PLURAL:n|0th form|1st form|2nd form|3rd form (numbers 3&4)|5th etc.
form till 100, then restart}}</nowiki>
* <nowiki>{{PLURAL:0|članov|član|člana|člani|članov}}</nowiki> works correctly
* <nowiki>{{PLURAL:1|članov|član|člana|člani|članov}}</nowiki> works correctly
* <nowiki>{{PLURAL:2|članov|član|člana|člani|članov}}</nowiki> works correctly
* <nowiki>{{PLURAL:3|članov|član|člana|člani|članov}}</nowiki> should generate
3rdform (number 3), but generates the 2nd
* <nowiki>{{PLURAL:4|članov|član|člana|člani|članov}}</nowiki> should generate
3rd form (number 4), but generates nothing
* <nowiki>{{PLURAL:5|članov|član|člana|člani|članov}}</nowiki> should generate
4th form (numbers 5 till 100 then restart), but does nothing

Here someone figured out how it should be done, but don't ask me what he did:
Comment 6 Niklas Laxström 2006-06-09 23:07:49 UTC
Another fix is now live and plural should work now.
Comment 7 Dejan Papež 2006-06-10 14:23:31 UTC
Unfortunately it's still incorrect - it seems to be always a form behind. See a
new demo here:
Comment 8 Dejan Papež 2006-06-10 14:32:47 UTC
Perhaps the number 0 has been forgotten about? It should have it's own form.
Comment 9 Niklas Laxström 2006-06-10 21:31:06 UTC
The form for 0 is supposed to be the fifth form given.
Comment 10 Dejan Papež 2006-06-11 01:35:38 UTC
Oh, that's it? Then it's ok and the bug is fixed. Thanks a lot.
Comment 11 Dejan Papež 2006-06-11 21:40:12 UTC
No, it's not ok yet. It's ok for magic words. However, when I tried to use
'plural' by 'Mediawiki:Categories' and by other messages that include '$n' it
still doesn't work as it is supposed to. I entered the following:
{{plural:$1|kategorija|kategoriji|kategorije|kategorij|kategorij}} which would
be for {{plural:n|1st|2nd|3rd&4th|5th-100th|0th}}. The software always renders
the same form (i.e. the last one). Try using Special:Random/Category in
Slovenian Wikipedia if you wish. 

This should be taken care of rather quickly please, as I already inserted plural
in many messages. Thanks very much!
Comment 12 Dejan Papež 2006-06-11 21:44:24 UTC
Sorry, I have chosen the wrong message. It works ok.
