Add "Sandbox" link to top bar on Swahili Wikipedia
Closed, ResolvedPublicRequest

Description

Hello everyone!

I hereby requesting the additional link of a "Sandbox" to the top personal menu on every page of Swahili Wikipedia, similar appearance as to what people seeing on the English Wikipedia. This will help users easily access a testing area for editing without affecting real articles. I found out recently we don't have that kind of access to our Wikipedia. I tried to add the codes by myself on the MediaWiki section, turns out I have limited access despite being a sysop. Please do the needful to fix up the problem.

We have also Swahili recommended word for that. It should read as "Ukurasa wa majaribio".

Thanks!

Thanks for successfully adding the sandbox link to SWWP. However, it still reads in English 'sandbox' instead of "ukurasa wa majaribio." I was asked to translate the term at Translatewiki, but still the shows the same English word. Please help!

Please wait one week until things may get synchronized between systems.
