Linktrail for Tamil (ta)
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Author: sundarbecse

Description:
Hi,
In Tamil wiki (http://ta.wikipedia.org) we find that affixes to wikilinked words are not
automatically linked, only the part within the square brackets is automatically linked. Outside of
them it remains normal text. For example if we write [[குலக்குழு]]க்கள், only குலக்குழு will be
underlined and turned into a hyperlink, not the remaining part of the word. Surprisingly, for
English words in Tamil wikipedia, it works very well i.e. [[Example]]s will link the whole word.
Perhaps the software is treating all non-English characters as separators. Please fix this.

Sundar

the following format:abcdefg...

http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0B80.pdf says the Unicode range 0B80-0BFF is reserved for
Tamil. Can you include this entire range?

Hi,
The same problem has come back again. Was there a Mediawiki update? Can someone
fix it as this is giving a bad experience for the readers?

Sundar

It should now be really fixed. Wait for the sync.
