What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

While idly chatting over at Software Recommendations (boring room name, I know. Anyone have any better ideas?), we noticed that Simple Wikipedia articles (like this one) don't onebox. There just shown as normal links, while their en.wikipedia.org counterparts onebox.

After some more investigation by Gilles, it looks like the system only takes two-letter language codes. This should be expanded to accept any language or flavor of Wikipedia.

We aren't the first to notice this. I voted to close the earlier question as a duplicate because this one is a little more general (three-letter language codes are affected as well, not just simple). –  Gilles Apr 23 at 0:55

I have changed chat to accept up to 15-character subdomains for Wikipedias, and I've also added the dash. If I didn't miss any, zh-classical is the longest one, so this should catch all of them.

ONEBOX ALL THE WIKIS!

Are you developing chat again? I've got a few feature-requests :P –  ɥʇǝS Apr 25 at 2:09
