Render self-referring interwiki links as bold
Closed, InvalidPublicFeature


Author: stanley

Just a minor one.
Sometimes when people copy an articles from wikipedia a to wikipedia b, they
forgot to remove the interwiki to wikipedia b. At wikipedia b, the interwiki is
broken (displayed like ordinary source text). Why dont treat that perticular
interwiki with bold and unclickable for example.

Version: unspecified

Yes, this would be a good idea, because it really occurs pretty often, that
there is a broken interwiki link below the article text when the interwiki links
just have been copied (especially by newbies) from aWiki to bWiki.

I would suggest ignoring those self-referring links at all.

If this can't be implemented are there configuration options, setting the local language on the local table differently?
