links ([[:Image:foo]], ...) broken in image descriptions transcluded from the Commons
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Author: dbenbenn

Description:
See, for example, [[Image:Correggio Jupiter and Io dsc01821.jpg]].
The markup inside the red box is broken. All the other links on the
page appear to be right. I think the problem is simply links of the
form [[:Image: ...

The transclusion to another project of an internal
link from an image page on Commons to another image
page or to a special page gives a wrong link, see also

See bug 3397 for the same symptoms using a "[[Special:Upload]]" link inside a

Should "crosswiki" be added to "Keywords" here?
*crosswiki*

"This bug requires two or more MediaWiki installations to communicate and/or

share data."

I think that the transclusion assumes that all interwiki prefixes from
[[commons:]] work at all of the wiki's sharing the files. If the transclusion of
the image description from the shared file repository is a basic MediaWiki
feature not related to WikiMedia foundations installations then the interwiki
tables at these installations need to pay attention that the interewiki tables
from all wiki's sharing the files are subsets of the interwiki table of the
common file repository.

*a minor issue*
At [[wiktionary:en:Image:Västerås-domkyrka2,_modified.jpg]] the link
"sv:User:Chrizz" points correctly to [[wikipedia:sv:User:Chrizz]]. However this
is an anomaly because links at wiktionaries starting with the interwiki prefix
"sv:" link to "[[wiktionary:sv:foo]]".

example to comment6

The description from [[commons:Image:Lauterbrunnen-valley.jpg]] is included at
[[wikipedia:en:Image:Lauterbrunnen-valley.jpg]]. This is refered at
bug 3397: special link in commons template is badly expanded when viewed from
other wiki

At the moment the links are broken. If this bugs will be fixed please assure that

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Upload" title="Special:Upload">upload
[[Special:Upload|upload]]
is exchanged with
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Upload"
title="commons:Special:Upload">upload
[[commons:Special:Upload|upload]]

See [[wiktionary:yi:project:bugzilla/02726#language_lings_trough_commons]].
Maybe it would be the easiest way just to add the interwiki prefix "commons:" to
all wikified links from the transcluded image description. This will fix also
the "minor issue" from comment 6.

No, the link is correct. When an image description page is transcluded from the
Commons, it is supposed to be rendered the same way it would be at the Commons.
This is necessary for attribution, for example, or so that license templates
are displayed the same way. Having the page code be rendered "locally" would
defeat the purpose.

Fixed along with bug 3397 in CVS HEAD.

Gilles moved this task from Untriaged to Done on the Multimedia board.
