Link to Special:MyLanguage/Help:Manual#Step 4: Localisation[edit source]

  1. This section currently named as "Step 5: Localisation"
  2. Maybe needs add anchor to Help:Manual and continue to link to this anchor? Current link is incompatible with using of "Special:MyLanguage"...

--Kaganer (talk) 16:49, 30 May 2012 (UTC)Reply

All steps on Help:Manual already contain number anchors, so I changed it to link to Special:MyLanguage/Help:Manual#5 which should work in any language. SPQRobin (talk) 18:30, 30 May 2012 (UTC)Reply

New logo tutorial[edit source]

Maybe add sugggestion for uploading .svg version of new logo into Commons? And list logo templates for all from supported projects? Proposed text:

Upload a logo called "Wiki.png" on your local wiki (based on File:Wikipedia-logo-v2-en.png for new version of Wikipedia, File:Wikiquote-logo-en.png for Wikiquote, File:Wikibooks-logo-en.png for Wikibooks and File:Wikinews-logo-en.png for Wikinews) and protect that image (or ask someone with sysop access to do so). It must be 135 × 155 pixels and transparent! When you are sure it is correctly done, request at Bugzilla to set your logo.

Other examples of Wikimedia logos may be find in the commons:Category:Wikimedia official logos. Also please upload .SVG-version of your logo into Wikimedia Commons.

Bugzilla migrated to Phabricator[edit source]

This page links to old Bugzilla, despite now we are using Phabricator. If you (and Phabricator :) are capable to change the format in right way to save the parameters, please do. In another case I will simple change the links to phab:. --KuboF (talk) 20:01, 12 January 2016 (UTC)Reply

Adding interwiki links[edit source]

FAQ says "For other projects, you can use interwiki links by adding the project code, e.g. [[en:voy:Page]] for Links to the English Wikivoyage, [[fr:wikt:Page]] for Wiktionary, and so on."

But it doesn't work? Instead it links the page to the respective Wikipedia. What would be the solution?

I'm working on Wq/si. Thanks in advance. අනංගයා (talk) 06:57, 24 July 2016 (UTC)Reply
