The move was from MediaWiki help policy to Help:MediaWiki help policy.--Patrick 08:34, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

All of this were old talks about templates like hi replaced by hh now replaced by hns and actually not more used directly, we have now template:h:h Help ( talk edit history links ) and the related zoos. Therefore I've archived this cruft to get rid of bogus references in "what links here" for obsolete templates. -- Omniplex (w:t) 23:01, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

NOEDITSECTION[edit]

If you're going to use __NOEDITSECTION__ in the help pages, the source code for your examples should be explicitly included inline, since it's otherwise very difficult to find. (Edit the entire page, scroll down and look for the section you were looking at, etc.)

In general, the source for any examples should be inline anyway. — Omegatron 21:25, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Where is __NOEDITSECTION__ used?--Patrick 22:18, 15 May 2006 (UTC)
It's in one of the H templates, which are pretty poorly named. I couldn't figure out which nested template actually had it, but when i removed them from a help page, the section editing links reappeared. — Omegatron 22:49, 16 May 2006 (UTC)
I just got rid of {{H:new}} and {{H:hns}} everywhere, the rest of the zoo are essentially "H:h" (= en "H:h Help") for the header and "H:f" (= en "H:f Help") for the footer. "H:" is Meta-specific, no odd side effects. "H:1" is unused, but documented, and no odd side effects. -- Omniplex (w:t) 03:37, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
Generally on w:en: because editing a copy instead of the master page here is pointless. But probably you're not talking about w:en oddities. -- Omniplex (w:t) 03:39, 16 May 2006 (UTC)
