E3. Allow config of archive title formats using MediaWiki namespace config page
Closed, ResolvedPublic2 Estimated Story Points

Description

VisualEditor has some techniques for this (e.g. to make sure it's editable as JSON).

The simple version of this is to just allow:

Archive%d, Archive_%d,

or:

archivo%d

etc.

More elaborate variations could support dates as well (e.g. August 2015). But I think just consecutive numbering is probably fine.

We should also investigate whether we can have this translated at MediaWiki.org while still allowing wiki-specific overrides by editing the MediaWiki.org page.

See T117616: Allow config of archive page title formats for LQT conversion using MediaWiki namespace config page.

Do we also removed the archive title from the special page? Or do we leave it there and it defaults to the i18n message if nothing is specified on the page?

  • Add flow-conversion-archive-page-name-format
  • Supports multiple formats separated by \n

The Special:EnableFlow page looks as the following:

And a Flow page gets created as Talk:, or just as with a arbitrary page title - e.g. ET123, ET456/vv etc
