Allow transclusion for Special:Gather
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Allow registered users to transclude specific public collections from other pages (for example, their own userpage).

Something like: {{Special:Gather/id/551}} would render the corresponding Collection summary card as it shows up on the creator's page.


We have thousands of lists that are manually added to userpages for maintenance purpose, to showcase pages created, FA promotions etc.: I suspect many editors would love to see these lists converted to consistently styled collections (if they had a chance to).

Sounds good. Would be interesting and not to problematic to add a hook that renders the collection. The only problem is how to invalidate it when the collection changes...

It could be JS only as a first step.

Jdlrobson set Security to None.
Jdlrobson moved this task from Needs triage to Could have on the Gather board.

Could someone add the steps to reproduce the bug?

This is not a bug but a feature request.
The request is to allow editors to embed Gather cards in a page.
To understand it you'll need to read up on MediaWiki parser functions:
You may want to look at Wikidata-Page-Banner and RelatedArticles which both use this.

Note this task is a little trickier than standard good first task cards and to set expectations you may run into trouble attempting to implement this but it would be a valuable learning experience. If you don't feel comfortable at tackling something trickier you may want to look at other Easy tasks.
