Supporting Solar Hijri calendar model in Wikidata
Open, Needs TriagePublic


We would like to add new calendar model to Wikidata for supporting Solar Hijri dates.

In Persian Wikipedia many dates are based on SH not AD and conversion is difficult for users.

I don't think this is a duplicate. T189746 appears to be about having automatic conversion. This task appears to be about direct database/UI support for this calendar, without converting dates to Gregorian.

Agreed, I think this is a legitimate request – similar to T59704: Support Julian Date (astronomy) and T131593: Supporting Hebrew calendar model in Wikidata. (Maybe we should have a more specific tracking task for requesting new calendar models, other than the rather generic T87764: Bugs related to time datatype (tracking).)
