internal linkings to a page, in specific mediawiki message not working when used with abuse filters
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

At mr-wiki internal linkings to a page, in mediawiki message not working; when non-sysop user checks a for private edit filter.

:Description of problem: when non-sysop user clicks to check a private filter usual mediawiki message displayed is mediawiki:Abusefilter-edit-denied.This global message as such is plain (i.e.without any internal links to any page).

:On user requests at mr-wiki we localised and updated message with internal link to certain info pages about edit filter.(Purpose: better traffic navigation;to guide such users to participate in public edit filters) this internal link is properly visible and working in mediawiki:Abusefilter-edit-denied but not working when some one clicks to check the filter.(eg of the problem http://mr.wikipedia.org/wiki/विशेष:दुरूपयोग_गाळणी/7 )

Please see in following mediawiki message internal link is working but not with non-sysop user checking
http://mr.wikipedia.org/wiki/mediawiki:Abusefilter-edit-denied

Interestingly mediawiki message mediawiki::Abusefilter-history-error-hidden also is locally updated and contains internal links. when a non-sysop user clicks to check diff in recent changes it shows locally updated message correctlly and internal links do work.(eg: http://mr.wikipedia.org/wiki/मिडियाविकी:Abusefilter-history-error-hidden)

Please help us so that we can use mediawiki:Abusefilter-edit-denied message with working internal link. Rather if you can update the message for global where in an internal links takes to edit filter home shall be usefull to all non-sysop users in all wiki projects.

Soon we will be putting few more abuse filter related bugs.

Seasons greetings and thanks to all of you for all your hard work

Regards

Do you mean one of the links you removed in https://mr.wikipedia.org/?diff=prev&oldid=1127768 ? What were they? Are you saying that sysops don't see those links or that they can't open them?

Interestingly mediawiki message mediawiki::Abusefilter-history-error-hidden
also is locally updated and contains internal links. when a non-sysop user
clicks to check diff in recent changes it shows locally updated message
correctlly and internal links do work.(eg:
http://mr.wikipedia.org/wiki/मिडियाविकी:Abusefilter-history-error-hidden)

It's possible that some messages do not parse i.e. render wikilinks and others do (both of these don't have links in the default). However, that can't depend on the user's permissions.

By the way, I see you have several very active private "civility" filters: you should probably make 6, 14, 15 public rather than filling the warning "this filter is private" with other content.

I am giving thought to rope in technically better user than me to discuss and take this bug discussion thats why I am crossing the fingers.This is not an urgency bug.Just an issue to provide better facility to users.We have time we can go slow
