Proposed patch to create new such messages (74.87 KB, patch)
2007-08-29 16:14 UTC, Dan Collins

Description Itayb 2007-04-14 09:30:07 UTC
I'd like the navigation links of the history pages to be renamed from "Previous
50", "Next 50" to "Newer 50", "Older 50", respectively.

What's wrong with the current naming convention?

It's unintuitive, even counter-intuitive ("Next" is "Further in the past"!),
hence confusing, and also inconsistent with both the two other history
navigation links named "Latest" and "Earliest" as well as with the navigation
links appearing on top of the revision pages, named "<- Older revision", "Newer
revision ->".
Comment 1 Itayb 2007-04-14 09:49:51 UTC
On this occasion, it would be nice if you also renamed the history navigation
links "Latest" and "Earliest" to "Newest" and "Oldest". This is not so
important, but it will make the interface more consistent.
Comment 2 Rob Church 2007-06-06 03:19:43 UTC
This can, of course, be done on a per-wiki basis through the MediaWiki namespace.

Comment 4 thisnudibranch 2007-08-25 22:59:43 UTC
It can't be fixed locally; the prevn and nextn messages are used by categories, which need "previous" and "next".  We need two new messages, historyolder and historynewer.

Proposed patch to create new such messages

This patch will:
a) add the function 'getNavigationBar' to the class 'PageHistoryPager' based on the function in 'ReverseChronologicalPager'
b) change the messages in the new 'getNavigationBar from 'prevn' and 'nextn' to 'historyprevn' and 'historynextn'
c) create the above messages in all languages that have a localized 'prevn' and 'nextn'

I could not find any 'master list' of messages, but if there is one, it is not updated :(
Comment 6 Jarry1250 2011-03-22 21:24:34 UTC
Resolved in r28237 (Dec 7, 2007) as part of the fix for bug #4777, AFAICT.
