Localized sidebar

Hi everybody, I've done some translation into French today and I find it would be great if the links of the sidebar could be localized (exempt some links like portal, community portal and RC), it would create a more localized environment (example [1] the words are translated but leads to English pages).

To achieve that, the links like MediaWiki:Registration-url/fr must be created (for each language) and the developers must add (one time) in the config $wgForceUIMsgAsContentMsg = array( 'Registration-url', 'Schedule-url', ... );.

What do you think about that ? is it possible ? ~ Seb35 [^_^] 19:47, 7 February 2009 (UTC)Reply

Yes, I already have a bug open about that. :-) See bug 17295. Cbrown1023 talk 19:59, 7 February 2009 (UTC)Reply
I tried this configuration on my test wiki. Could an admin try the following MediaWiki:Sidebar ? :
* about
** registration-url|Registration
** schedule-url|Schedule
** volunteers-url|Volunteers
** press-url|Press
** sponsors-url|Sponsors
** FAQ-url|FAQ
** Site Map-url|Site Map

* navigation
** mainpage-url|mainpage
** Wikimania:Community_Portal|portal
** recentchanges-url|recentchanges
** IRC-url|IRC
** contact-url|Contact

Most of the links should be localized; I have just a doubt for Site Map-url. It is perhaps necessary to purge some page after [2]. ~ Seb35 [^_^] 11:42, 28 June 2009 (UTC)Reply

oooooh, looks like it's working! \o/ *embrasse Seb* Cbrown1023 talk 00:25, 29 June 2009 (UTC)Reply
The secret was to write exactly what there is in the config file particularly the initial letter. When you will have some time, could you create the links for the different languages: MediaWiki:Site Map/fr, MediaWiki:Site Map/ja... although it isn't urgent since the site has still many placeholders. ~ Seb35 [^_^] 18:23, 30 June 2009 (UTC)Reply
Now you have +sysop so you can help and get it done faster. :) Cbrown1023 talk 16:13, 7 July 2009 (UTC)Reply
:) I will create some links tomorrow (here is the night). ~ Seb35 [^_^] 22:22, 10 July 2009 (UTC)Reply
Done for the pages already translated. If there are new translations, the links should be created. ~ Seb35 [^_^] 09:35, 12 July 2009 (UTC)Reply
