I've installed Extension:Translate in a SMW.
It works for normal pages.
But if I use it in Templates to translate the interface content of it
when I try to use the template in other pages apears the <translate>
Can I use Translate for Templates? If it, what is happening and How can
i solve it?
Thanks in advance;
A new episode of the MediaWiki podcast "Between the Brackets" is out. This
one is an interview with Joseph Reagle and Jackie Koerner, the two editors
of the new book "Wikipedia @ 20". It's probably the least MediaWiki-focused
episode of the podcast so far, but we do talk quite a lot about Wikipedia,
so it's... at least a little bit relevant to this mailing list. This is
also the first episode that I recorded video for - something I hope to do
more in the future. Here's the video on YouTube:
...and here's the regular audio version:
Hello to all, I'm new here, even though I've been using mediawiki for
some 10 years now.
Our mediawiki runs still in version 1.34.1. Now I wanted to upgrade to

I have a page that gets changed.
As it is being changed, I know that templates and modules are
resolve what the page should look like, and what form will be stored in the
Let's say the page "Petition//Will_Of_The_People" is a list of names
signing a petition (Call it "Will Of The People".)
Someone (Call them "Pat Chris") edits it and adds the same template or
module or something like that to the page.
Is there any mechanism whereby I can mechanically/programmatically update
the page named
Category:Pat_Chris/Petition and specify what line to add to it, saying they
signed the "/Will_Of_The_People" petition?

Well, it's not really new - it came out a week ago - but I forgot to post
about it before. The latest episode of the MediaWiki podcast "Between the
Brackets" features Larry Sanger, co-founder (although he prefers the term
"ex-founder") of Wikipedia. You can listen to it here:
He has a new book out now, "Essays on Free Knowledge: The Origins of
Wikipedia and the New Politics of Knowledge", so mostly we talked about
that, and his ideas about Wikipedia, bias, and so forth; but we also talked
about the early days of MediaWiki, since Larry was around for all the
