Shortcut for commons?

Any chance of getting "c:" to be a shortcut for "Commons:"? If this is not the right place to ask for it, would greatly appreciate a link to where you think is better... Lar 20:50, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

No response? :( I just made a this comment before seeing this. Rocket000 01:07, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

mediazilla: or bugzilla:

I can see that mediazilla: is listed in "Project titles and shortcuts" section as prefix to MediaZilla.

In that Help page itself ( "Prefixes" section, look near the end of that section) bugzilla: is used as prefix to make a link, and it's working.

Which is the right way? Someone can explain it in the Help page. --ChemicalBit - talk 11:34, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

So mediazilla: can be used just to link to MediaZilla's main page? --ChemicalBit - talk 14:04, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

Festipedia

Can a mediawiki.org admin make a "festipedia:" interwiki prefix that looks like this:

Web address: http://www.frheritage.org.uk/wiki/

Long form: festipedia:

shortcuts: fest:, fr:

It will be appreciated. --Dagoth Ur, Mad God 02:52, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

WikiHow.org names

Why does WikiHow.org use dashes instead of underscores in a page URL? Also, why does WikiHow use only part of the page name in the URL?

Here is a link to a Wikihow page:

How to Use the MediaWiki ImageMap Extension

Here is the wikicode used for the above link.

[[wikihow:Use-the-MediaWiki-ImageMap-Extension|How to Use the MediaWiki ImageMap Extension]]

One can't link by adding double brackets around the page name. The link does not work. Try it and see. --Timeshifter 14:31, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
