Special:NewLexeme no longer supports passing lemma-language in the URL
Closed, ResolvedPublic3 Estimated Story Points


For some languages, Special:NewLexeme requires entering the lemma language separately. Until a few weeks ago, it was possible to pass lemma-language as a URL parameter to Special:NewLexeme to prefill the form fields. Now the lemma-language parameter is ignored and the lexeme can't be added unless the user manually fills in that field. Other parameters still work.


It would be useful for this to work again, because then people can create links/bookmarks for common combinations.

Marking as high as it is a Regression

This was happening before the refactorings (I used an old version) and it's a frontend issue. When you apply it, the input element has the value of the language but it gets overridden by the language selector widget. Probably @Jakob_WMDE is better suited to take a look here.

Tarrow added a subscriber: Tarrow.

Since @Jakob_WMDE is now hiking on Termbox I'll pick this up and take a look. If I hit a wall I'll page him :)

Hey @Nikki , this should be fixed on tomorrow. Let me know if you encounter other issues!
