add special page listing all tracking categories
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

This is something a little harder than an easy bug, but still fairly straightforward.

Tracking categories (see [[mw:help:Tracking categories]]) are hard to discover. It would be cool if there was a special page listing them all, their message name, and brief description. Extensions must be able to add their own tracking categories

Suggested implementation (feel free to do something else if you have other ideas):

*create new global, $wgTrackingCategories that is an array of the message names of tracking categories
*create a special page that has a table listing:
message that defined the tracking category
actual category (if message has {'s, should be parsed in context of all namespaces)

  • if tracking cat +'-desc' that is added as a description

Version: 1.23.0

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
