Could someone please take a look at tardis:MediaWiki:Successfulupload, or indeed the same page on your own wiki) and explain to me how to create a link in these messages that don't allow standard wiki markup? I know that it's sometimes possible to use the HTML <a href> tag, but in this case it doesn't work. Are there any workarounds when both standard wikicode and HTML syntax don't produce a viable link?

Here's what happened at Special:MultipleUpload when it tried to display the message with HTML linkage. It's in caps because it's using the standard .WikiArticle h2 class, which is in caps on our wiki.

YOUR FILE UPLOAD IS COMPLETE. HOWEVER, IF YOU HAVE NOT REMEBERED TO ADD AN APPROPRIATE <A HREF="HTTP://TARDIS.WIKIA.COM/WIKI/TARDIS:COPYRIGHT_TAGS">COPYRIGHT LICENSE</A>, YOUR WORK MAY BE DELETED WITHOUT WARNING.

So why can't you just use [[Tardis:Copyright_tags|Copyright License]]? -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 24 Jan 2012 2:53 PM Pacific
I don't know. There are simply some MediaWiki messages that don't accept wikicode. This is one of them. czechout@fandom    fly tardis  <span style="">00:21: Wed 25 Jan 2012 
Hmmm, this might need use of tardis:Special:Contact/general. You could try making a tardis:MediaWiki:CopyrightTagsLink page with <a href="http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/Tardis:Copyright_tags">Copyright License</a> in it and then put <verbatim>CopyrightTagsLink</verbatim> where the link should go on tardis:MediaWiki:Successfulupload and see if that works.
The last resort would be Javascript, but that seems like overkill and would slow down your wiki. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 24 Jan 2012 5:43 PM Pacific
