Embed category lists?

Is it possible to embed category lists in a page? I would like to have the proposed tasks automagically listed at instead of having to keep manually the list.--qgil 12:36, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

Well, according to this, we definitely need a plugin. Either CategoryTree, which seems to do want we want here, the other option is DynamicPageList, which is more complicated, but is capable of doing a lot more stuff. They seem to be compatible with each other, so installing both seems like a good plan. Anyway, I've filed bugs #3341 and #3342. —GeneralAntilles 12:53, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

Other Language Section

Is it possible to create the Russian-language and other language section of wiki ? We would like to move here materials and translations. --dik 23:58, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

This may not be super-feasible. Wikipedia does it by providing a nearly-completely separate wiki for each language. We could do it here by providing a namespace for each language, but that is likely to clutter up searches, categories and page lists with non-English results, which is probably not a desired outcome. Will likely need to discuss further. —GeneralAntilles 06:19, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Personally, I'm very much against cluttering up the wiki with non-English content. Running a separate mediawiki instance for each language may be the better option (from a wiki-user perspective, anyway), but running a dozen or other instances that are guaranteed to end up as spam repositories isn't something that we need. So, in order to have a language instance added, we need to see a minimum commitment (say, 5 dedicated people that are willing to manage the wiki, patrol for spam, etc). —GeneralAntilles 06:50, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
hope you won't drag that for ages - community development in non-English languages is no less priority than pushing forward English-only solution. silpol 08:50, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Why not elaborating a decent proposal?--qgil 09:33, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
As GeneralAntilles says, though, it needs commitment from others. There are probably no more than a dozen people regularly tending this wiki and a wiki is like a garden: it needs to be regularly pruned, watered etc. to prevent rotting and weeds. If there's enough commitment and energy for a non-English language wiki, I'd be happy to support it; but I agree with GA: it shouldn't clutter up the English wiki search results and so may have to be an entirely separate instance. --Jaffa 17:11, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

More uploadable file formats

I'm Unable to upload a file to the wiki. This is stopping Task:Components_and_packages. Please let me know whether this can be done or not with the wiki. If not, I will find another place. Thanks!--qgil 08:35, 19 July 2008 (UTC) --qgil 15:11, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
This is definitely a ferenc issue. —GeneralAntilles 20:15, 19 July 2008 (UTC)


I was trying to make wikipedia like infobox template for software but probably missed some templates as page didn't come out as supposed. OMWeather is page where I was trying to make it. I hope that someone can make that template to work properly. Or was it mistake to copy those templates directly from wikipedia? If so templates I made should probably be deleted.

I tidied up the OMWeather article, and removed the templates as no other article was using them. amigadave 12:53, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
