Hi, sorry to be a pain, could you please replace the code I asked you to put into MediaWiki:Common.js with the new stuff I just posted on its talk page. Sorry :( I was given the wrong code so its not working. No rush, its definately not an urgent one! ~ Percephene ~ talk contribs 08:28, 28 May 2008

Hey, Lex. Time for another request that forces you to dig into Mediawiki. Is there any chance you could put footnotes (<ref> tags) support into JoCopedia? It's really only for one page: Jonathan Coulton (my work-in-progress is at User:Wesley/Jonathan Coulton). Hope you agree, and sorry for the bother! — Wesley | 14:15, 29 May 2008 (EDT)

Rereading the discussion at Talk:Jonathan Coulton, it seems that Bry has looked up the name of the extension. According to Bry, it's mw:Extension:Cite/Cite.php. — Wesley | 14:24, 29 May 2008 (EDT)
Sorry Lex, but I'm going to need your help yet again. The little (non-ASCII) arrows in reference lists break pages. User:Wesley/Jonathan Coulton#References breaks, for example. I think a workaround would be to use http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Cite/Cite.php#Set_references_to_use_.5E_and_letters_like_Wikipedia. Would you mind making that edit as an experiment? — Wesley | 16:04, 30 May 2008 (EDT)
I've done that, let's see if it works. --Lex (talk - contribs) 05:57, 31 May 2008 (EDT)
Thanks Lex! Works like a charm. I've just dropped that test page into the actual Jonathan Coulton page. — Wesley | 06:33, 31 May 2008 (EDT)

Hey, Lex, sorry to bug you -- I've got some ideas for the sidebar, and I'd be glad if you'd look them over and implement them if you like -- see MediaWiki talk:Sidebar. --Bry 02:03, 17 June 2008 (EDT)

RSS extension

No worries -- I suggested embedding an RSS feed as a potential solution to Percephene's problem, but if it doesn't seem to be a big deal to her, it probably isn't worth the trouble trying to fix it. Thanks, though! --Bry 03:33, 27 June 2008 (EDT)

Botonization

Sortable Tables

I have been using sortable tables in the Show Statistics project, for it to work on this wiki a bit of javascript needs to be added to MediaWiki:Common.js. This can be found here. Once that is done and a Category made for the pages I will run the bot and the pages will go live. I know you have been following but here are two examples of tables my bot has made: [1] [2]. Thanks in advance for adding the code. If you want the official page rather than the wiki I am using as a playground it is Help:Sorting. --BenS 10:52, 13 August 2008 (EDT)
