Manual talk:Hooks/SkinCopyrightFooter

From mediawiki.org

$msg takes HTML formatted argument broken?[edit]

In 1.19.0 there seems to be a problem with setting $msg to some HTML text. For instance, doing this:

function CopyrightFooter ( $title, $type, &$msg, &$link )
{
  $msg = 'Content is available under the <a href="http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/fdl.html">GNU Free Documentation License 1.3 or later</a>';
  return true;
}
$wgHooks['SkinCopyrightFooter'][] = 'CopyrightFooter';

Renders like this:

<Content is available under the <a href="http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/fdl.html">GNU Free Documentation License 1.3 or later</a>>

See Manual:System_message and take a look at how it's used on the WMF cluster:
