Wiki parser

Hi Vincent, I try to use some function of wiki parser like to write template for language menu. I think parser isn't install.

You can see this page for help

This code on local server display a menu for translated page

{{MenuTranslate| page=Main Page}}

Template:MenuTranslate --Xno 15:38, 5 September 2008 (CEST)

Does it work with our version of mediawiki or do I need to upgrade mediawiki to a current version? Vincent 23:34, 8 September 2008 (CEST)
Version of mediawiki is ok. You must install the parser function, it's only 5 files, and a line in LocalSettings.php, see parser function install --Xno 09:11, 9 September 2008 (CEST)
I think that I did what is required. Can you test (and document)? Vincent 08:02, 10 September 2008 (CEST)
It's ok. I've create Template:MenuTranslate, now it run correct. --Xno 11:39, 10 September 2008 (CEST)
Hello Xno, you don't need a parser for the language templates. You can study the existing templates (like ) and then create new templates. Regards --Swen 17:46, 5 September 2008 (CEST)
Hello Swen, I try to create unique template for al page. I see the existing template, and I think I can contribute with this type of template, where an unique MenuTranslate is used, for al page that need link to translated page, more simple I think. --Xno 18:37, 5 September 2008 (CEST)
But then you assume, that all pages have the same translations. But currently that's not true. If you create a template for all pages you will get a lot of 'red' links. I wouldn't like to have such links. --Swen 23:30, 5 September 2008 (CEST)
More page are TITLEPAGE/SUFIX with the same title. For 'red' links I thik use this #ifexist:
{{#ifexist:}} returns one of two results based on whether or not a particular page exists.

Hi Vincent, 'Downloads' on the sidebar confusingly points to Components and Code examples because of Mediawiki:downloads-url. I was expecting a page like Getting Lazarus... Arent (talk) 20:51, 27 July 2020 (CEST)
