That's very odd, it should just work.
You're sure you have $1 in there exactly (e.g. no space between $ and 1)?
If your wiki is public, can you link to it?
p.s. When finding what mediawiki messsage to change, appending
?uselang=qqx (or &uselang=qqx) to the url can be much easier than

Hi, ... with MW-1.28.2 I am trying to create a custom
page for users who receive the "Permission Error with action" system message.
Using the Special page "Special:AllMessages" I have learned that the display
TITLE for a permission error is defined by the content at
"MediaWiki:Permissionserrors", and I have learned that the TEXT that a user sees
upon a permission error with actions is defined by the content at
The default text is of "MediaWiki:Permissionserrorstext-withaction" is:
"You do not have permission to $2, for the following
When I create the custom page "MediaWiki:Permissionserrorstext-withaction" with
the exact same content as the default, the $1, and $2 do not get parsed and the text
displays the $1 and $2 as literals.
How can I get the $1 and $2 to process with the custom action(s)?
