Welcoming new users using Pywikibot
Closed, ResolvedPublicFeature

Description

I would like to know 2 things regarding welcoming users in Wiki projects:
1)How I can add following four templates to welcome.py file:
{{subst:സ്വാഗതം}} - Source code
{{subst:Welcome}} - Source code
{{subst:Welcome}} - Source code
{{subst:Welcome}} - Source code
2)What needs to be done from my side to welcome new users other than adding these template links to welcome.py file.

I added this to master branch. It will be included to stable branch in 2 or 3 weeks. Other dSettings aren't mandatory. i18n from translatewiki.net are done from time to time. You may verify whether pywikibot-welcome-... are translated already. Otherwise a fallback language is used. Please not that the signature is writen be the template itself which Always uses the bot's signature and fake signature from other users cannot be used. This means -sign and -random options does not work.

I think there is a small mistake in the code being added by @Xqt. In all the additions done by you in the welcome.py file, the template namespace has been added erroneously I think.

Yes and some others, see https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=Special:Translate&group=out-pywikipedia-welcome&language=ml
but there is nothing left to do.
