Description:
The magic work {{DISPLAYTITLE}} is not working. I tried it out in the Sandbox
and got no effect, then I went back to the sandbox a few days later and it was
woring, then I made an edit to the sandbox and the title went back to
WikiKnowledge:Sandbox.

I'm pretty sure {{DISPLAYTITLE}} has never worked properly. I suppose nobody's
bothered removing it because it's an obscure option set to false by default.

So if {{DISPLAYTITLE}} were made to work properly, we could get rid of the
horribly kludgy {{wrongtitle}} and friends?

({{lowercase}}, {{underscore}}, {{lowercase and underscore}}, {{longtitle}},
{{pipe in title}}, {{namespace}}, ...)

That would be a huge improvement.

Among other things, the magic word doesn't interface with the parser output in a correct
manner, nor was it coded to work with the parser cache.

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.
