Dynamic Page List (DPL)

DPL is a powerful tool, allowing users to construct queries with specific constraints to display lists of certain pages, template arguments, and many other things, and define a (custom) display output for the data. Its syntax is necessarily complex, and incorrect use can substantially slow page loads. DPL is primarily used in Kirby Wiki within templates in the Database. To see a list of all DPL invocations, see Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Extension_DPL

Easy Timeline allows for the construction of time lines within wikis with relative ease. It is mainly used to construct a graphical representation of a series of related articles in chronological order.

Approved on 13 July 2011

Labeled (Labelled) section transclusion allows for selective demarcation and transclusions of (overlapping) sections of articles. It is a big improvement over the <includeonly></includeonly> <onlyinclude></onlyinclude> <noinclude></noinclude> tags.

The includesize of the the transcluded section when called using the extension syntax is the part enclosed within the section tags being called, not the whole page.

Recent Changes Patrol

Documentation Help:Recent_changes_patrol
Requested by User:Changtau2005
Requested for Special:RecentChanges patrol
Approved by w:User:Dantman ?
Approved on 15th June 2011

Recent Changes Patrol allows users with Patrol and Administrator privileges to look at Special:RecentChanges through a filter. Unpatrolled pages are marked with a "!" mark. Marking a page patrolled will remove the mark, which avoids repeat patrols. Edits from Administrator usergroups are automatically marked as patrolled.

Sort allows for automatic sorting of lists or arrays delimited by a common delimiter in ascending / descending order. It is useful for sorting a list constructed from several transclusions without having to resort to manual JavaScript sorting in tables.

Declining reason: "Wikicode not a programming language"
