Talk:Function Page


Collapsible Categories

Is there a way to make the function categories collapsible? I can't say I'd prefer it until it was tried, but it may make the page cleaner if it wasn't a huge list.

I don't believe we have the necessary javascripting support enabled on this wiki to do something like this. I will be reorganizing the page later this evening now that all the functions are there with basic categorization; specifically changing the numbered lists into real sections using conventional wiki syntax. Breaking up the all black underlined style of the page will help with navigation and readability.

Such things are possible on Wikipedia; I'll look into whether or not they're possible here.

Ooh, very nice! This actually could be really useful for setting up the Geckbot to insert all of the descriptions in the template.

But, please tell me you did this with some clever Search & Replace... you didn't actually type all of that out, did you?

Regex search & replace is a wonderful thing. :) Technically the bot could have done the conversion too, but that's easy to do in the future now that you have a guide for the basic layout. And yeah, hopefully it'll be easy to make the bot crawl over the function pages every once in a while to update the description field with the first sentence from the summary as well as the origin value from the template (just in case it is wrongly specified during initial creation).

Yes, regex is excellent. Very glad to hear you did it that way rather than manually. If you hadn't, I would have pointed out that you could have, or you could have asked me to.
Anyway, yes, having the bot run periodically to update these things should be possible. I know there's even ways to have it run automatically (for example, for Welcome! messages, which I'd like to set up). I will look into that next.

Page name

When we're ready to make this page "live" and have it replace the Category:Functions page, we should really rename this to "Functions".

Agreed, this name was intended to just be temporary.
