I propose we use templates like this to help organize Anyone else have any better ideas for formating templates like this,in other words a beter way to format and make these kind of wiki/html tables look nice?--Your mom 18:58, 28 August 2006 (CDT)

  • What you've got (only cleaned up and made to look really freaking nice), category breadcrumb moved to the top, or this: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/MenuTabs --Lucifer 19:33, 28 August 2006 (CDT)
  • Im all for the menutab idea if we could get that working --Your mom 21:03, 28 August 2006 (CDT)
    • Well, I installed it but didn't manage to get it working well. Fool with it if you like and see if you can make sense out of it. --Lucifer 07:58, 29 August 2006 (CDT)
      • <!-- Bad Behavior 2.0.4 run time: 20.731 ms -->
        <div id="header">
        <ul id="primary">
        <!-- Bad Behavior 2.0.4 run time: 20.731 ms -->
        <li>X&lt;/li&gt;
        <li>Y&lt;/li&gt;
        <li>Z&lt;/li&gt;
        <ul id="secondary">
        <!-- Bad Behavior 2.0.4 run time: 20.731 ms -->
        <li>A&lt;/li&gt;
        <li>B&lt;/li&gt;
        <li>C&lt;/li&gt;
        </ul>
        </ul>
        </div>

        It's simply broken in a weird way, and I can't help but notice that BB repeats itself too often. Bad behavior indeed. —Jonathan 10:27, 29 August 2006 (CDT)

        • That's new, probably fallout from the upgrade. Bad Behavior didn't used to repeat itself. Hmmm.... Maybe Bad Behavior hasn't been completely updated to 1.7 and I should check for a new version... --Lucifer 13:32, 29 August 2006 (CDT)
        • 2 things.  :) There isn't an updated Bad Behavior extension, i.e. there's one extension that's supposed to work for all supported MediaWiki versions. The second is that I looked at the bad behavior log and it's definitely working, that is, unless you like mexican internet pharmacies and find them to be ontopic on this wiki, heh. A patch that fixes this weird behavior of Bad Behavior would be welcome, but I looked at the extension itself and it'll probably take a bit to fix, like maybe a real knowledge of how extensions in MediaWiki work. --Lucifer 13:47, 29 August 2006 (CDT)
    • One more thing before I go to class. We have the Sections template already, which for some reason or other prints the current page as bold instead of a link. It's just a list with simple formatting, we could start with some templates that go under it and just work on those incrementally until we wind up with something like Your_mom suggests. --Lucifer 13:54, 29 August 2006 (CDT)
      • Not just that template: [[Talk:Wiki Structuring Project]]Talk:Wiki Structuring ProjectJonathan 17:58, 29 August 2006 (CDT)
      • heh i was wondering why editing links wasnt working about a minute or so before you posted that--Your mom 18:26, 29 August 2006 (CDT)
    • You cant link to catagories inside of a table so i guess this wont be happaning unless im doing something wrong...Mabey redirect pages idk--Your mom 21:23, 1 September 2006 (CDT)
Category:Getting_Started rubber first cell should be a link to a catagory then rubber(second) then this(3rd)
      • Congratulations, you successfully added this page to the category Getting Started, and gave the impression that it's broken outside of tables. —Jonathan 21:57, 1 September 2006 (CDT)
        • Do it like this: [[:Category:Getting_Started]] Note the colon before Category, that lets you link to a category page without putting the current page in the category. --Lucifer 22:10, 1 September 2006 (CDT)
  • How about this one? http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:CategoryTree It's already there, because it's in the svn repo for mediawiki, but I need to upgrade to at least 1.8 (we're on 1.7.2 right now) to use it. I'm intending to go all the way up to 1.9 next week, so this isn't a problem. We could replace the Sections menu on the left with it if it looks good enough that way. We could probably replace all the links on the left with it. --Lucifer 18:53, 17 February 2007 (CST)

Catagories

A good way to organize

FAQs

It seems there's an FAQ page, a hostingFAQ page (Linked to from the Wiki navigation sidebar) and a playingFAQ page (Linked to from the Wiki navigation sidebar), without any mention in the Wiki Structuring Project. These pages all seem fairly similar in content and layout, and I would even go as far as saying their content duplicates a lot of the information in PlayingGettingStarted and Server_Administration_Guide.

Would it be more sensible to have a centralised FAQ page containing more general FAQ's, with links to the Server_Administration_Guide and PlayingGettingStarted? Or is the intention to keep the FAQs pertaining to Playing and the Client completely seperate from FAQs regarding hosting a server?

-- T1 06:48, 5 July 2007 (PDT) T1 likes making links bold, MWAHAHA! ;)

  • Maybe they could all be merged into one page, and the links in the sidebar made to link to the “chapters” in the master FAQ? BTW, if you like bold, I suggest you add #bodyContent a { font-weight:bold !important; } to your user styleheet :-)Wrtlprnft 07:02, 5 July 2007 (PDT)
lol, I could add that to my user stylesheet but then I wouldn't be subjecting everyone else to it! - (jk. Don't worry, it was only a passing fad! :) ) Shall I start restructuring the FAQ page in that case? -- T1 09:06, 5 July 2007 (PDT)
  • The whole point was that I could have my links the way I want them and you could them the way you want yours ☺. Sure, go ahead, you can't make it much more confusing than it already is…—Wrtlprnft 14:42, 5 July 2007 (PDT)
