WikiBhasha localization for Right-to-Left languages is not complete.
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Screenshot of issue related to right-to-left language

Some GUI components in WikiBhasha, like loading window that shows ‘Loading…’ and a warning window that shows "Any changes made in this step would be lost if you move to an earlier step. Do you want to move anyway?" are not displayed properly for the right-to-left language. Even the pane titles are not Right-to-Light.

Repro steps:

  1. Invoke WikiBhasha on Arabic or Hebrew language Wikipedia page.
  2. Go to the ‘Submit’ step and do any changes in the edit box.
  3. Go back to the previous steps. You will get a warning message window where the right-to-left direction of the content is not proper.

Is WikiBhasha still used anywhere in Wikimedia sites?

@Amire80: That implies it was ever deployed. I do not think so: zero results grepping for "[Bb]hasha" in wikimedia/mediawiki-config.git

I think that it was used as an on-site script/gadget, not as an extension. That's why I said "used", not "deployed" :)

Uhm, I see. Well, this task is about the extension. :)

Closing all tickets of WikiBasha, since it is not likely that this will ever be developed any further.
