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. For now, nothing else should be modified and we should wait for the namespaces to be created before we figure out what else needs to be changed. --cybermind 16:42, 22 January 2007 (CST)
