Is this possible with Mediawiki and some extensions:
For example, consider a user who prefers french content...types in this:
-ideally the URL path for a given page stays the same (as displayed in
- to avoid a redirect
-system checks users preferred language (say by
ACCEPT_LANGUAGE header) -
in this case its 'fr'
-wiki looks up french version of the given page, if it
exists it displays
-if the french doesnt exist, it displays the english
-user would type the page name appended with /fr to force-edit the french
(to create it)
-skin would still use users language for localized
content for the layout
(non-media wiki parts like header, footer, side navigation
Similar BUT NOT THE SAME as the Extension:Multilang,
extensions I see out there.
Is this possible to "fight" the wiki in bringing up a default page when
one does not exist (instead of the mediawiki built-in behavior to bring up
the page allowing the user to create it).
Any ideas welcome!
Extension:Translate should fullfill your needs mostly. It provides a
fallback language and other things.
However, as for the theme, that is mostly up to its author, as long as
those parts are not put into the interface messages.
