Fix the wikicode templates at Outreach:Wikimedia:Starting an education program so new education program plans are not created as subpages of Education Portal/Program Plans/ but rather as subpages of Education/Program plans/ and move existing plan pages created prior to this domain also
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Go to the education portal's "Get involved" page (Outreach:Education/Get involved).

Go to the section called "Create a program plan".

Click the button called "Education program planning guide".

You will be directed to a page called "Wikimedia:Starting an education program".

This page is an interactive module that allows newbies to draft a plan to pilot a new Wikipedia Education Program.

Somewhere in the templates at Wikimedia:Starting an education program, there is some wikicode that causes new plan pages to be created as subpages of Outreach:Education Portal/Program Plans/.

Please fix this so that new pages are created as subpages of Outreach:Education/Program plans/ instead.

Please also move any existing program plan pages created before into the Outreach:Education/Program plans/ domain also. There is a category of existing plans at Category:Wikipedia Education Program pilot plans. You can see how Sage moved this page as an example (see diff here).

Speaking of these pages they are made so complicated for some reason… All these lua modules and stuff… I wrote Sage on his talk page on Meta about stuff like that https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Sage_Ross_%28WMF%29#Education_training_pages_simplification (though I chose a wrong talk page of his). Hope someone will think about a way to simplify them while keeping functionality.

Thanks, @Base, for subscribing to this task and moving these pages. I'm impressed that you noticed this and I really appreciate you jumping in to help. The highly complicated code is why I created this task in the first place: I couldn't fix it myself. It would be great if there were a community member, ideally an education collaborative member, who has the skills and interest to simplify the code while keeping the functionality. If you know of such a person, or if you are such a person, please let me know. I have created a new task for this topic here: [[T114593]].

I suppose the requested here part is done so marked this as resolved :) Actually it turned to be in the easy part of the code though I faced some difficulties as I had to file T114592 (which is perhaps a duplicate though)

Awesome, @Base! Thanks so much for completing this task.

And thanks for troubleshooting the more meta part of the problem over at [[T114592]].

So, is [[T114593]] no longer necessary? If so, feel free to close it.

T114593 is necessary at least till the pages get marked for translation :) With simplifying or, well, vice versa making things harder (modules should be taught to deal with translations). Simplifying is much preferable thus the task should live, IMHO :)
