Updates and follow up[edit | edit source]

  • Subpages – Clarification and possible policy change. Help:Subpages says: “By default, MediaWiki's subpage feature is turned off in the main namespace, but can be used on talk pages and user pages. See Help:Namespaces. In namespaces where the feature is switched off, any slashes (/) within a page name are simply part of the page name and do nothing special.”
The above paragraph seems to talk about two different things.
  1. Where subpages can be used.  This seems to imply that subpages are only for talk and user pages.
  2. The breadcrumb trail that can be automatically generated.  Should this be turned on for other types of pages? Judy 19:39, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
  • What are all the FCK editor bugs? Can someone volunteer to add them to the Known Issues page and/or the Editing Tool pages
  • Final word on RAOGK template(s)?  Remove? Blank out (how?). Lise 19:45, 25 October 2011 (UTC)
