Wiki Index

Post by Mac_Fife » Mon Feb 16, 2009 9:08 am

One of the "problems" of a wiki is that it allows you to create pages that are not linked to anything else. While such "orphaned pages" can be found using the Orphaned Pages query, it doesn't really help as most people won't think to look there. So, I'm trying to maintain an index of sorts on the Community Portal page.

This uses wiki tables (which can be a bit obscure) so if you're not comfortable with editing this index yourself you can either post indexing requests here or PM me :) .

Much better. I was wondering how/when to do something like that.

I'm also working my way through creating and assigning Categories to each page. These are another way of structuring the wiki and allows pages to carry links to lists others with similar themes. Pages can be assigned to several categories if needed.

You'll see these categories appear in grey boxes at the bottom of your pages. If anyone wants to suggest new categories, or change the categories, then feel free :)
