Steps to Reproduce:
- Go to Special:Translate
- Choose to translate Recent additions or Recent translations ( Dynamic message groups )
- Open a message and click the "Link to this message" tool in the dropdown on the message key
You will see a message stating - "The message group is empty".
Expect to see the actual message linked to in the respective message group, with the respective target language.
Link when copying from Recent additions message group,
Link when copying from the appropriate message group,
If you look at the text after showMessage query parameter, you'll notice that the link generated on the recent additions page has a 1198: prefix. This is the NS_TRANSLATION namespace.
- Replace the 1198: before generating the link. This might cause problems with Translatable pages that start with 1198:
- In the link instead of setting the message group as the actual group in which the message is present, the group can be set to the dynamic message group ( Recent additions / translations). The issue with this approach is that after a few days, the link will become invalid.
