Description brianna.laugher 2007-04-10 03:48:15 UTC
MediaWiki:Upload-url points by default to 'Special:Upload'. On Commons, I want
to change it to 'Commons:Upload' for English interface only.

I created MediaWiki:Upload-url/xx for all language codes, and made them say
'Special:Upload'. Then I changed MediaWiki:Upload-url to 'Commons:Upload'. But
it changed the link target for ALL language interfaces.

So it seems that the Upload-url/xx pages are being ignored. see e.g.
(Most ug messages are not defined, so they default to English)

This messages behaves inconsistently when compared with the other messages in
MediaWiki:Sidebar, i.e.
mainpage, welcome-url, portal-url, village pump-url, helppage, contact-url.

If this behaviour is not changed, then it means the Commons interface can't be
updated for English without updating it for all other language interfaces. This
is very painful for a multilingual wiki which nonetheless has a large
English-speaking userbase.

Based on my understanding of I changed the
bug title.
Comment 2 brianna.laugher 2007-04-11 14:09:10 UTC
Note this is not a default message created by MediaWiki. It's one we invented to
move the upload link from the toolbox to the sidebar, which probably (?)
explains why it was never whitelisted.
