I want to translate into Norwegian, how can I add the language to the LanguageSwitch template?

The language template needs to be redone, it doesn't work when you use it on a foreign page, only on English. --cybermind 12:10, 22 January 2007 (CST)
AMWiki needs to have an "Ru" namespace added (and perhaps an "No" namespace) in order for Template:LangaugeSwitch to work as desired. Here are MediaWiki instructions for how to add it. Also all the old Talk:Ru:blah pages will have to be moved over to Ru_talk if you decide to use that for the Ru namespace talk pages. --cybermind 12:15, 22 January 2007 (CST)
I've renamed all the Ru: pages so that when the namespace is added, the pages will not become inaccessible (I will move them to the new namespace once it is created). I also added a new template, LanguageHelpSwitch which will be used where the namespace for the English version of the page is Help: but the Russian is just Ru: (like Help:Editing vs Ru:Editing). --cybermind 12:27, 22 January 2007 (CST)

Category:Ru:Scripting (AMX Mod X) contain broken links. What is the best to do here? Should i create Category:Ru Scripting (AMX Mod X) and relink related articles here?

They should all work now. The Category names can stay Ru: since you can't have any other category namespaces other than Category, so Category:Ru: would be like a sub-namespace sort of. Also, once the Ru namespace is made, the Ru articles will be moved back to Ru:Whatever which will make them active in the Ru namespace (right now, there is no Ru namespace, that was just a part of those articles' titles). Once that happens, the LanguageSwitch (and LanguageHelpSwitch) templates will work perfectly. --cybermind 16:42, 22 January 2007 (CST)
