Click here to leave a message for MrDolomite in a new section on this talk page.

It's a talk page. w00t!

Email me?

Could you email me at david (at) midrange.com?

I've got some questions for you.

Upgraded mediawiki

I upgraded to Mediawiki 1.8.2.

Let me know if you see any problems.

david

comments in stubs?

Any idea how to have a HTML comment included in a stub?

I would like to have the stub text excluded from the google adsense content scanning ... but the comments seem to be removed.

See http://wiki.midrange.com/index.php/Template:Stub

david

Mediawiki 1.9.0

Upgraded. Let me know if you see anything odd.

Uploads should be fixed now

.

$wgNamespacesWithSubpages[NS_TEMPLATE] = true;

Ok, made the change.

ParserFunctions Extension

Installed

Redirect...

I entered WDSCi in search and got a not found. When I entered WDSC I got "redirected"... Can you set up a redirect from WDSCi to WDSC?

Dave

Re: Redirects for WDSCi

Sounds good to me.

Is there any wikimedia access that you would find helpful that I could grant?

Re: Recent change counts

Green for positive numbers and red for negative?

Cite Extension installed

It would be helpful to have the Cite extension installed here. It makes doing footnotes/references/citations/whatever you want to call them easier, as it is done in a common way, with automagic links within the article

I've installed the Cite extension.

FWIW: In the future, it's better to email me directly instead of leaving a note on my Talk page.

Signature?

What's {{unsigned|Starbuck5250}} mean?

CLP Category and others

The {{ccl|CLP}} recent change on the Main page is showing on my browser as [[Category:CLP]], should it not just show CLP. I dont know how to fix as I dont know templates yet, and anyhow I dont have access to the Main Page of MidrangeWiki. FKOL 01:02, 10 January 2008 (CST)

Thank you for the explanation on the templates. Also thanks for the Welcome, from what I see you have quite an influence on Wiki's. I have seen references to Wiki Champions, Gnomes (maybe me), Faries and others but I think there should be a reference to Wiki Superhero which it seems to me, describes you.

I am not sure how to go about setting up a Citations and References page , what format it should have and where I should put it. I could just put it at the base of the page I am editing. Any suggestions, please. FKOL 19:26, 10 January 2008 (CST)

32K Limit

I had a message pop up that the page I was editing, WDSC tips, was getting close to 32K and that I should consider splitting it up. Is this really a problem. How big can the wiki pages be. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by FKOL (talkcontribs). FKOL 20:00, 10 March 2008 (CDT)

Show TOC from sub-pages on Main Page, and link

Hi. I dont know if I am expressing this correctly. You split some of the WDSCi Tips into sub-pages, for which I offer thanks. I then split all the sections on the Tips into sub-pages. But I am not happy with the results. What I would like to see is the TOC of each sub-page automatically appear on the main page. I could manually put in links on the main page to each sub-page heading, (very tedious) and also tedious to maintain. I still may do this if there is not an easier way. Then a click on a TOC link would pull up the sub-page. Anyhow I am not expecting much can be done , but I ask the question just in case. FKOL 20:00, 10 March 2008 (CDT)

WDSC Articles at Bottom of Page

Hi. I feel that it would make the page more useful to have the 'Articles' at the top of the page. I tried to edit the page to do this but it looks like this is a Wiki controlled thing. Do you have any suggestions, please. FKOL 02:54, 13 March 2008 (CDT)
