Babel points to empty "Category:Babel - Users by language"
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

The Babel template includes a link to

Category:Babel_-_Users_by_language

However, such category is empty -- click the link at the bottom of the Babel box at http://espiral.org/wiki/User:QuimGil

A category page with links to the main category of each language would be expected instead.

For what is worth I can see a couple of diferences between my stock installation and what meta.wikimedia.org and mediawiki.org have:

  • their user language categories have the format "User xx" while in my installation the categories are created with the format "Xx".

In case it helps, https://noc.wikimedia.org/conf/InitialiseSettings.php.txt contains Wikimedia's Babel extension configuration.

Thank you, that explains the "User xx" vs "Xx" difference.

I still wonder whether, according to the current Babel implementation, an equivalent to https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Users_by_language should have been created by the extension automatically or if it is expected that the site admins do this manually.

Actually, on second thought, this is just related and not a duplicate.

(Agreed that this task covers no new ground that isn't covered by one or the other of those)
