Hi, I'm trying to include some links to information and reviews about the CRYPTOTAG in the article, but I get the message:

Please note that this site (MediaWiki.org) is not Wikipedia. If you believe that you received this message in error or have a legitimate need for the link, please submit a request here.

How can I proceed?

Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

You can't proceed. As the message describes, your contribution here is not legitimate. Please read what is this site about.

Can you try creating the page first, and then add the link after the page has been created?

That worked - thank you.

When I try to add a link to my blog on the page https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Denisha88 it throws an 'It looks like you' error is trying to add an external link to a page. Please note that this site (MediaWiki.org) is not Wikipedia. If you believe that you received this message in error or have a legitimate need for the link, please submit a request here. '

I am trying to add this about my website (link removed)

Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

Looks like there's no legitimate need for the link, hence the error message you received is totally relevant.

Adding links requires some posting history on this wiki. You should be able to do so now.

Howto : access automatically to localized Wikipedia

Hi all. On page https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/SELinux I want to link the translated sub pages to their corresponding local article in the wikipedia. That means, for example, the root article will link to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SELinux and the french one to https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/SELinux. Is a possibility to do that automatically ? , or we leave the translator to do the conversion manually ? Thanks

TALKPAGENAME: how to code access to the talk page of the root article when called from a translated subpage

Hi all, my problem today is that on translated FR subpage => https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/SELinux/fr#Pygments_for_SyntaxHighlight we have an access to {{TALKPAGENAME}}. Although it is meaningful in the root page (topic is on its own talk page) it becomes meaningless on the translated page where it accesses direcly the talk page of the translated subpage => https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Talk:SELinux/fr and of course the topic is not found since this talk page is today empty. So my question is: how to force the access to the talk page of the root article (dynamically if possible and avoiding a hardcoded link)) when called from a translated subpage ? something like {{TALKPAGENAME|BASEPAGENAME}} but unhappily this is not a template. Thanks.

Done with {{TALKPAGENAME:{{BASEPAGENAME}}}}

BASEPAGENAME gets the page without the subpage, and then use it as parameter to TALKPAGENAME to tell it to get it's talk page instead of the current talk page. In magic words, the first parameter is separated with a colon from the magic word itself, and not with a pipe.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Marvellous ! it works.
