Description:
Instead of rendering correctly, it seems to show a bunch of ugly code from
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Uploadtext . MediaWiki:Uploadtext/vi
is not defined. But when I look at
http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Upload&uselang=ug ,
another language that doesn't have MediaWiki:Uploadtext/ug, it works fine
(although it shows the original, default value for Uploadtext rather than our
updated one - that seems like another bug).

Please help, thanks.

Fixed in r14472.

Constructs like <nowiki>{{PD}}</nowiki> don't work quite as one
might expect in messages because of the way brace substitution
is currently applied to messages at load time, before they get
passed through the main wiki parser.

Moving the <nowiki> inside the braces, like this:
{{<nowiki>PD</nowiki>}} does the trick.

Thanks. But... I don't understand where that text is even coming from. After
all, http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Uploadtext/vi is empty. What
page did you change?

Also, vi.wikt has exactly the same MediwWiki:Uploadtext as currently appears on
the Commons' vi:Special:Upload :
http://vi.wiktionary.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Uploadtext . I just created an account
there to check, and it renders fine on vi:wikt:Special:Upload. And they have
<nowiki>{{PD}}</nowiki> .

It's in the default language file.

This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
