Extensions to consider

From Wing Commander Encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Let's use this page to list and discuss every extension we'd like to consider before we ask Kris to add them. This way we'll be able to keep track of them and everyone will be able to give their opinions about it. When you do suggest an extension, please state it's inteded usage too, so if anyone has a better idea or extension to solve the issue they may suggest it.



Skin per page http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SkinPerPage)

Intended usage: we could use it to have the articles related to fan-created content with a slightly different skin (blue instead of gray article background has been suggested) to make it instantly obvious this article isn't about canon information.

Collapsible Tables http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Collapsible_tables

Intended usage: I tried to get ToggleDisplay to work but any table code inside it (except for an entire table) gets messed up. If the code from Ultima wiki isn't trustworthy is the code from mediawiki.org? This would allow me to duplicate the infoboxes seen here.
