Current development on JAMWiki is primarily focused on maintenance rather than new features due to a lack of developer availability. If you are interested in working on JAMWiki please join the jamwiki-devel mailing list.

Tech:Page Toolbox

ktip.png This page (and all pages in the Tech: namespace) is a developer discussion about a feature that is either proposed for inclusion in JAMWiki or one that has already been implemented. This page is NOT documentation of JAMWiki functionality - for a list of documentation, see Category:JAMWiki.
Status of this feature: NOT IMPLEMENTED.

Description[edit]

Mediawiki currently has a "toolbox" that appears in the left nav of many pages containing page-specific links such as:

  • What links here
  • Related changes - JAMWiki doesn't support this, and I don't think it's used enough on other wikis to be worth including.
  • User contributions
  • Upload file - This isn't page specific, and probably doesn't belong in a toolbox.
  • Special pages - This isn't page specific, and probably doesn't belong in a toolbox.
  • Printable version
  • Permanent link

Until now JAMWiki has used tabs for these functions, but with today's commit of "User contributions" the tab bar is beginning to get a bit crowded and it might make sense to begin using a toolbox in JAMWiki.

Proposal[edit]

I don't have a lot of time at the moment to describe this feature, but I would imagine it would be pretty easy to add a "toolbox" parameter to the WikiPageInfo object, and that parameter would simply contain an array of WikiLink objects. We could then move the "Print" and "Links" tabs to the toolbox, and for user pages could also include the "Contributions" link.

Status[edit]

Under discussion, may be included in JAMWiki 0.6.0.
