Does the template preloading work on other language versions as well? How do I edit the special "new page" page to make it work like en:? Jpatokal 04:20, 13 August 2006 (EDT)

Evan and I set it up on DE and it works fine. The thing to do is create en:MediaWiki:Newarticletext. Look at the EN version to get the a gist of what the text code should look like. Also, make sure all the article templates are in the template namespace like en:Template:Giantcity, because the MediaWiki template uses that to preload the new page with the template. Does that make sense to you? -- Sapphire 04:46, 13 August 2006 (EDT)
Spiffy, it's set up now. Jpatokal 04:57, 13 August 2006 (EDT)
One more note. If you ever switch your prefer language to anything other than Japanese you'll be unable to see or use the feature. -- Sapphire 05:07, 13 August 2006 (EDT)
