Provide "Random page of this book" feature for use on Wikibooks projects
Open, NormalPublic

Description

As the title indicates, please provide some way to get a random page of a book on Wikibooks projects. The feature could be used to get a random chapter of a book developed on Wikibooks, such as a random recipe from [[b:Cookbook]], or a random animal from [[b:Wikijunior:Animal Alphabet]] or a random sonnet from [[wikisource:Category:Sonnets]].

Even without fixing bug 15071, this would be possible if we had a way to restrict the current [[Special:RandomPage]] to a specific category. Another option is to use the list of chapters from a book created by [[Special:Book]] from [[mw:Extension:Collection]], as in [[mw:Extension:BookManager]].

Since there are various options to fix this, I'm marking this as dependent on (either of) the following bugs:

  • Bug 15071: Wikibooks/Wikisource needs means to associate separate pages with books
  • Bug 25931: Review and enable RandomInCategory extension
  • Bug 31003: Replace {{RANDOMCHAPTER:Optional book name}} by [[Special:RandomChapter/Optional book name]]

Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement
