On WT-French version, when editing a page, I don't have the table listing all the template shortcuts
(attractions, restaurants, hotels...) contrary to the English one.
How can I set this up? Is it a mediawiki config?
Additionally, I'd like to have the "add listing" link next to each section as well.
Any thought? Thanks! Joelf 15:55, 13 March 2011 (EDT)
Adding the listing editor function is more difficult. First you need to translation a number of tag files-- see the list at en:Wikitravel:Listings#Translation to make listing templates in Fr:. Make sure you edit the Fr: version, not the En: ones. Then you'll have to petition IB to turn the functionality on. texugo 20:37, 13 March 2011 (EDT)
Ok, Edittools works fine. I'll probably keep it simple stupid and not translate the tags since French accents are a pain and there are already many English tags in the French version. For the "add listing", I can survive without them for now. Thanks a lot texugo for your quick answer! Joelf 04:01, 14 March 2011 (EDT)
There are a fair number of MW messages that every language version is going to want to customize; we should create a list of them in this article with guidelines. But... damned if I can remember them all. I'll poke around, but please add to this list if you think of more!
