[Migrated] Namespace-insensitive list sorting or add talk page after article
Open, Needs TriagePublicFeature


Add an option to sort a list while disregarding the namespace, so that a mainspace article would appear immediately before the same title in other namespaces. For example, instead of sorting as Article1, Article2, Talk:Article1, Talk:Article2, it would be Article1, Talk:Article1, Article2, Talk:Article2. This could be in the right click menu and/or the list filter. @Mandarax 00:18, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Another possibility would be to have an "Add talk page" option to take a list of articles and add the corresponding talk page right after each article. @Mandarax 20:22, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

I'm working on sets of pages where I fix/add DEFAULTSORT and also work on the corresponding talk page, adding WPBiography if missing and fixing/adding the ''listas'' and ''living'' parameters. It would be very convenient to have the pages sorted together so I can manually apply any nonstandard DEFAULTSORT which I find in the article to the ''listas'', and also determine the ''living'' status from the article to fill in for WPBiography. Or, if I find that the article's not a bio, I can immediately skip the talk page.

This is such a useful feature for me that I wrote a simple external program to do it and I paste the list into AWB. But it would still be very convenient for AWB to do this.

Aklapper changed the subtype of this task from "Task" to "Feature Request".Nov 22 2022, 5:18 PM
