@Balajijagadesh Hi, we need two things to fix this: the localisation for "Author talk:" and a link to the discussion about this request on the wiki.

If you haven't discussed the issue yet, you can start a discussion on the village pump or any venue used on this wiki to discuss such changes.

This change will be deployed at 2017-07-20 evening SWAT.

Change 366626 had a related patch set uploaded (by Dereckson; owner: Dereckson):

Thanks for all who worked on this update. I think it is updated now. There seems to be a problem. There were already many pages with "ஆசிரியர்:" before this was equated to author namespace. All those pages are seems to be deleted. now none of the pages exist. Does it happen like this? is there any way to recover those pages. Because there were quite a number of such pages.

Thanks & Regards,

It should be fixed now. Please report if you find any errors!


"ஆசிரியர்:" pages are back. I have a doubt. Is the Author equivalent namespace created?

J. Balaji

The "ஆசிரியர்" (Author) and "ஆசிரியர் பேச்சு" (Author_talk) namespaces can be selected at s:ta:Special:AllPages and s:ta:Special:PrefixIndex, so, yes, the namespaces have been created.

@Balajijagadesh Is that what you meant by "Author equivalent"? The "Author_talk:" namespace?

@Urbanecm It looks like the following page titles listed at s:ta:Special:PrefixIndex/Talk: should have been moved into the "Author_talk:" namespace, but weren't. They are currently inaccessible on-wiki ("bad title" errors):

Note also the following "Broken" title, which presumably came from running the maintenance script:

@Dcljr @Jayprakash12345

While we are typing as Author:(author name) in the url or in the search field it is not translating automatically into Tamil language ஆசிரியர். But for other namespaces such as Index, Page, mediawiki etc is properly translating in Tamil if we type these namespaces in English in url or search page. Kindly create the link for Author --> ஆசிரியர் namespaces.

I can't really help with this, since I don't know which configuration allows for the kind of automatic translation you're talking about (I'm not a sysadmin or developer).

@Dereckson Is this just a namespace aliases thing? (None are currently defined for the wiki under 'wgNamespaceAliases'.)
