Wiki Help: DPL


  • Coder

    Without altering database tables, how do I get rid of "Uncategorized pages" here:

    http://eldritch.mechanipus.com/w/index.php?title=Help:Content

    Thanks.

    @Thenomain

    Try:

    notcategory={page}

    ?

    ETA: It was magic parsing out my {page}

    What the .... okay, something is doing some strange shit to my text. I think it's the templating system for nodebb.

    notcategory=[page]
    

    But instead of brackets, curly braces.

    @Glitch: Nope. Not {} nor {{}} around page.

    I believe what this does is: Exclude all pages with a category of <name of this page>. Since <this page> is "Help:Content", not sure that was going to work anyway.

    @Thenomain I think it needs to be a specified category, instead of just page. Like:

    notcategory=UncategorizedPages

    @Glitch said:

    notcategory=UncategorizedPages

    "UncategorizedPages" is the page Special:UncategorizedPages, and the category is created by DPL as a way to list matched pages with no category.

    I believe all "Special:" pages are created on the fly, and therefore trying "notlinksfrom" and "notlinksto" aren't working.

    I can also make sure all help pages not intended to be listed have a special category ([[Category:Nohelpindex]], perhaps), but all coders are lazy and work very hard to stay that way.
