set $wgInterwikiMagic to true multilingual Wikisource
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: brendan

Overview: Interlanguage links on the multilingual Wikisource don't produce sidebar links, instead producing normal inline links as if they had a forcing colon prefixed.

Steps to reproduce: View [[oldwikisource:User:Prosody]].

Actual results: inline link to [[s:en:User:Prosody]] with body "en:User:Prosody."

Expected results: sidebar section "In other languages" with link to
[[s:en:User:Prosody]] with body "English."

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

This appears to be an intentionally set configuration option ($wgInterwikiMagic). In order to change it you need to get community consensus at oldwikisource.

I'm resolving this bug as later (is that right?). Please re-open if you have agreement at Wikisource.

For reference the url is (perma-link )

There's also talk about changing where the inetlanguage links go, to make them go to wikisource languages (instead of Wikipedia). That should probably be filed as a separate bug.

This is working, but it links to Wikipedia and not Wikisource. I don't think that's the intended behavior.

There's a followup about that behavior at bug 29591.
