Description micki kaufman 2004-12-09 20:19:42 UTC
Hi there.

Loving Mediawiki. Using phpwiki in our large corporate environment, but want to switch to Mediawiki.

In order to do so, we're looking for the following feature(s), that allow documentation management and 
distribution automatically from a wiki. They are very usable and flexible for large, more structured user bases, 
and I hope you will consider them!

1. Need to have a tag that provides a list of pages, inline to a page, that match given criteria

  (like phpwiki's 'BackLinks' or 'FullTextSearch' plugin)

For example, a list of all pages containing the phrase 'Category:Assigned' but not 'Category:Approved'... which 
would provide a list of all pages that had been assigned but weren't complete, etc.

You could the a 'search' mechanism for such a thing, allowing the use of 'category', 'tag', or just 'plain text' 
criteria.

And on a related note, the 'Include' variant to this function:

Instead of a list, how about the possibility to Include all the pages matching those criteria, to facilitate the 
creation of one large, virtual page. This is great for assembling books and printing them in pdf format, etc...?

A start down this path might be to make the transclusion of category pages do
something useful. At the moment (1.4beta6), transcluding a category page only
lists the article portion of the page. Perhaps we could define standard
transclusion parameters to category pages, stating which sections of the
category page would be transcluded. For example: {{category:ships|articles}}
would just transclude the list of articles from category:Ships.

@Micki Kaufman: Do you mean a advanced search function like the 
following?:

Don't one of the DynamicPageList extensions support this kind of category
intersection query?

Indeed, with 'category' and 'notcategory' options from DynamicPageList2, for
example:
<dpl>
category = Assigned
notcategory = Approved
ordermethod = title
mode = unordered
</dpl>

Hope it helps.
