Toolserver Tools - Soxred93: PLURAL template necessary

I think the messages toolbase-replag-years, toolbase-replage-months etc. follow the message toolbase-replag that contains the numerical parameter $1. This parameter requires the PLURAL template in the messages toolbase-replag-years, toolbase-replag-months, toolbase-replag-weeks, toolbase-replag-days, toolbase-replag-hours, toolbase-replag-minutes and toolbase-replag-seconds.

The message toolbase-footer-exactime requires PLURAL template as well.

    All messages marked as "Toolserver Tools" are no real MediaWiki extensions but toolserver tools (what a surprise ;-)

    Therefore they do not support the standard MediaWiki functions like PLURAL & co.

      Thanks. I proceeded on the assumption that all MediaWiki extensions can support PLURAL.

        Michawiki20:28, 19 January 2011

        Yes, this assumption is understandable.

          This is a suggestion made without proper research.

          Would it be possible to implement {{PLURAL|...}} in the toolserver messages?

            Please request this feature from the toolserver guys directly. As far as I know every toolserver tool is a stand alone PHP program. I fear every programmers has to implement this feature itself. But nothing Translatewiki can do for you. Sorry.

              Using PHP is not a requirement, so it can be any programming language; me alone using six different ones at least. As I said, no research, isn't there a library delivering strings to programs, which could take the parameter substitution and formatting stuff in a centralized way?
