Dear all, within the chemistry part of the wikipedia, we are trying to get rid of excessive, and biased
external links on chemical substance-pages. Since every chemical substance gets assigned some unique
identifiers, it would be possible to collate all the external links into a page (a rough setup is on
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Chemical_sources), and then have a special page creating the
links, just like the special:booksources page. I would like to have some help setting this up, I do not
have a live server to run a test wikipedia on, I have not much of a clue about php, and don't know how
to get my hands on an example (probs a copy of the special:booksources page.
For as far as I now can see, it boils down to making a copy of the special:booksources page, which loads
the chemical sources page. The special page has to be able to take more than one unique identifier, and
fill them in (maybe in some cases using some extra handling). I expect that the second step might be
also creating the magiclinks, but to start with I would be satisfied with templates calling the special
