MediaWiki talk:Sidebar

From The Infosphere, the Futurama Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

I was thinking that perhaps we should split up the navigation into two. One for people browsing the wiki as a regular user. And one for us (the community).

E.g.:

  • navigation
    • main page
    • episode listing
    • comic listing
    • random page
    • donations
  • community
    • conference table
    • recent changes
    • current events
    • help

I am a bit unsure where to put "community portal", cause it is sort of a link to other websites rather than a community portal within the Wiki.

What you say? --SvipTalk 06:48, 9 January 2008 (PST)

Well!? Are you just going to continue to ignore this?! ;-; Meanies... --SvipTalk 13:05, 23 January 2008 (PST)
Huh, what? When? Oh. Yeah, that sounds about right separate tabs to split it. The one thing that ever confused me about that thing was the capitals on "Table" and "Page" but not "portal", "changes" etc. - Quolnok 17:32, 23 January 2008 (PST)


Different proposal

I am not sure how many of our readers know we have transcripts and commentary articles!

So I am thinking;

  • navigation
    • main page
    • episode listing
      • commentaries
      • transcripts
    • comic listing
    • random page
    • donations
  • community
    • conference table
    • recent changes
    • current events
    • help

Thoughts? If no objections, I am changing it. Two days! --SvipTalk 10:49, 24 May 2008 (PDT)

Well, for the moment there's a number of commentaries on the main page. No objections here. - Quolnok 20:13, 24 May 2008 (PDT)
I know commentaries appear on Main Page, but they won't forever. Besides, not everyone looks in the 'What's New' section. And it will be a neat way to get faster. However, I don't know why I am arguing, since we are clearly not in an argument. --SvipTalk 07:27, 25 May 2008 (PDT)
Community Portal disappears under that layout, perhaps list it as external links in the community section. - Quolnok 22:06, 31 May 2008 (PDT)
Or perhaps a third section titled External Links; linking to pages like The Futurama Madhouse, CGEF, PEEL, The Futurama Point, etc and Other Sites(community portal) - Quolnok 22:32, 31 May 2008 (PDT)

Done

I've done it and changed it. You may need to do a cache refresh (e.g. ctrl+shift+r in Firefox) to see it completely. I'd like opinions, and possibly what we can change or perhaps throw out? --SvipTalk 14:45, 10 June 2008 (PDT)

The tooltip on community portal needs changing. and there is still inconsistent capitals, otherwise good. - Quolnok 23:34, 10 June 2008 (PDT)
Okay, caps are now consistent and fixing them that way got rid of the tooltip. - Quolnok 23:42, 10 June 2008 (PDT)

Community Portal

In the sidebar, "Portal" is written in capital but the article is "Community portal". That's why it links to an unstarted page. — TheFry23:40, 19 March 2010 (CET)

Moved the community portal page instead. Updating the sidebar should best be avoid if possible, since it has some cache issues. --Sviptalk 23:42, 19 March 2010 (CET)
