ShortLinksParser[edit]

Hi, Just wanted to ask for your perception of the difference between ShortLinksParser and Interwiki links? (mw:Extension:SpecialInterwiki) --66.208.61.209 15:18, 9 September 2008 (UTC)


Hey ho anonymous, thanks for the reference to the Interwiki links! I actually didn't know about the existence of this possibility. At the moment i see 2 differences:

  • you can define several placeholders in a ShortLink (in the next version you can also overload a ShortLink with different a different number of params pointing to different URLs)
  • you have a div box with a unique CSS-class around every ShortLink which you can use to customize the look of a link (e.g. using an icon in front of every link)

But i should point this out and make a reference to (mw:Extension:SpecialInterwiki). Thanks!

Hello, I habe difficulties with German Umlaute in links to BCS. I defined the ShortLink

  $a_shortLinks['BCS-OU']			= "https://bcs.domain.de/bcs/oudetail/info/display?oid={0}_JOU";

When using it in the form

  BCS-OU{1206459766349 MEGLA GmbH}

it works as expected. But as soon as I use an umlaut

  BCS-OU{1206459766341 Müller GmbH}

it shows up just as normal text. Regards, Volker

Fixed it. It's now version 1.2. Thanks for your advice!

In my installation it's still the same behaviour. Volker
