Dynamic Page List (DPL)
|Documentation||DPL Website • DPL Manual|
|Approved on||5th May 2011|
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.
Labeled Section Transclusion
|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
|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.
|Declined on||?th May 2011|
Declining reason: "Wikicode not a programming language"
