Tech:Typo in recent changes message

From Wikitravel Shared
Jump to: navigation, search

What happens[edit]

The introductory text for the Recent changes pages on Shared, en:, and any OpenLogin set to English reads, "Below are the last 50 changes in the last last 7 days..."

When it happens[edit]

All the time.

It seems to be a general mistake in the MediaWiki version we're using, as a google search reveals the same mistake in many other wiki sites. --Peter Talk 21:17, 4 September 2007 (EDT)

What should happen[edit]

Someone who knows where this text can be edited should fix it. It doesn't appear to be among the MediaWiki pages.

How to fix it[edit]

I fixed it on shared:. Please create MediaWiki:Rcnote (probably, it was deleted because of MediaWiki upgrade.) and remove unnecessary "last" from default text on en:. Incidentally, ja: doesn't have this typo. Maybe, it removed in translation work.

I couldn't see OpenLogin set thing. What is that? -- Tatata 23:53, 4 September 2007 (EDT)

Does OpenLogin set thing mean using English user interface on other language versions? If so, I guess that it will be fixed when en: is fixed. -- Tatata 00:02, 5 September 2007 (EDT)

I've now fixed it on :en as well. --Peter Talk 01:32, 5 September 2007 (EDT)
Yes, I mean OpenID login with the user interface set to English. I'm still getting the typo when using es: and I don't know where it's pulling that text from-- obvious MediaWiki:Rcnote on es: is the Spanish one and not the English. Also curious as to why MediaWiki:Rcnote doesn't show up in the list of MediaWiki pages under Special:All pages. Clearly the file exists but it doesn't show up. (How did you ever find that in the first place?) Texugo 02:05, 5 September 2007 (EDT)
Hmm, I wonder whether the OpenID problem might just be a cache problem, since I don't know where else it could possibly come from. The link to the RCnote MediaWiki file is most easily found by typing Special:Allmessages. The reason it doesn't show up in the Special:Allpages sort is that the default MediaWiki messages don't actually have pages; the pages are only created to sort of override the default messages (at least that's the way a fairly tech-illiterate like me understands it). --Peter 03:28, 5 September 2007 (EDT)
I found another one, subpage for multilingual support. And I fixed on ja:. Please try es:MediaWiki:Rcnote/en. -- Tatata 04:54, 5 September 2007 (EDT)
I am trying to fix ru:MediaWiki:Rcnote/en, but something else is wrong—all text between double braces is not showing up (e.g., {{PLURAL:$1|is '''1''' change|are the last '''$1''' changes}}), so that the rc text reads "Below in the last , as of $3." Any clue what's wrong here? --Peter Talk 13:22, 5 September 2007 (EDT)
Your edit on ru: is working well! -- Tatata 14:07, 5 September 2007 (EDT)
Hmm, I wonder why then it displays incorrectly at ru:MediaWiki:Rcnote/en. Oh well, I suppose it doesn't matter so long as it works properly on the recent changes page. --Peter Talk 17:03, 5 September 2007 (EDT)
As we try to clean up the bug report backlog, I'd like to point out that this would be an extremely quick report to close—it just requires sysop-level access across the 8 language versions still afflicted by the typo. --Peter Talk 01:16, 21 March 2008 (EDT)
I'm not seeing any difference between the ones marked fixed and the ones not marked fixed. Is this still broken? KevinSours 16:42, 19 August 2008 (EDT)
I think this was fixed in the last MW update, closing it – cacahuate talk 20:20, 19 August 2008 (EDT)
