Description

Author: brianna.laugher

Description:
Although wikitext such as [[links]] show correctly when you edit the MediaWiki
page itself, they don't show correctly in actual usage.

You can prompt this error message by going to Special:Upload and changing the
destination filename to something without a file extension, or a disallowed
extension (like .mp3).

It's also collapsing all whitespace which is not so useful.

Also, a comment from http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki_talk:Badfiletype :
"It looks like $1 is never an empty string, even when you have no extension, yet
the html code of the page will not give the its value."

This is a problem because we want to user parser functions to account for two
distinct mistakes (no extension/bad extension) which both result in this error
warning, but we can't.

Or, simply parserfunctions might not be able to handle the $1 variable.

MediaWiki:Badfiletype splitted in r20100 into 3 new messages:

filetype-missing: for files without extension (wikisyntax enanbled)
filetype-badtype: for files of unwanted types. The list of enabled types will be
shown as $2 (wikisyntax enabled)
filetype-badmime: for invalid mime types (no wikisyntax)

This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
