Examples[edit]

{{H:h Help}} gives

MediaWiki Handbook: Contents, Readers, Editors, Moderators, System admins, Researchers +/-

{{H:h Help|}} gives

MediaWiki Handbook: Contents, Readers, Editors, Moderators, System admins, Researchers +/-

{{H:h Help|MediaWiki Links}} gives

MediaWiki Handbook: Contents, Readers, Editors, Moderators, System admins, Researchers +/-

The following examples would add this talk page to handbook categories, therefore only a link to a corresponding help page is given:

  1. {{H:h Help|reader toc}}, see e.g. Help:Preferences
  2. {{H:h Help|editor toc}}, see e.g. Help:Editing
  3. {{H:h Help|moderator toc}}, see e.g. Help:MediaWiki help policy
  4. {{H:h Help|system admin toc}}, see e.g. Help:Installation
  5. {{H:h Help|hacker toc}}, see e.g. Help:Database layout

However, with preformatted text (depending on the browser also with table widths above 80% or long section titles in a ToC):

Clearly this should be avoided.

Renaming[edit]

To allow help pages to be copied unchanged to other projects, I suggest to change the name Hi to Hh (help header), because Wiktionary already uses Hi. Hi can then contain {{hh}} so that the help pages with {{hi}} still work.--Patrick 11:50, 23 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Done.--Patrick 10:30, 24 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Need to make this even more dense, and make page title more prominent[edit]

I hope we can find a way to embed this cruft in the upper right? hand portion of the page?

The page name is important, and ... the mediawiki handbook... isn't that important... I am guilty of labeling the pages with a misleading title... but I'm hoping that we can figure out how to bump this content right up there with the page name, as this header isn't really that much in the way of content.. (Although.. navigation is very important.. and content would be worthless without it... and I'm going to bed) AaronPeterson 05:33, 15 Oct 2004 (UTC)
