Description chrissi 2005-01-30 22:31:20 UTC
What about adding a possibility for setting the html-tags <link rel="next" ...>
etc. within a MediaWiki page? In wikipedia you coult make date-pages easier to
navigate. What about adding the document history to <link rel="alternative"
Comment 1 Bawolff (Brian Wolff) 2006-02-12 23:33:24 UTC
This would be useful on wikinews for the RSS feed so that firefox could detect it.
Comment 2 telarson 2006-09-26 16:36:24 UTC
<link rel="bookmark" href="#majorSectionOfArticle"> seems to be an obvious
addition.  This would be quite beneficial to metadata-aware browsers.  Since
wiki already creates a "Contents" box dynamically, it should only be a couple
extra lines of code to put some links in the document head as well.
Comment 3 Chad H. 2009-12-29 09:45:34 UTC
While I do see some slight benefit to allowing the setting of these, I also know our <head> has grown way out of hand and adding even more stuff to it is not the way to cut it back. We keep saying "well this is only X more bytes, it won't matter." Well all of those bytes add up eventually and a line needs to be drawn.

I suggest drawing it here and closing WONTFIX.

Comment 5 matanya 2012-07-26 14:07:19 UTC
I tend to agree with Chad. Would someone else review this and close?
Comment 6 Bawolff (Brian Wolff) 2012-07-26 14:30:33 UTC
I think this would be something for an extension.

In regards to comment 1 - (Just for clarification) I don't think that's a particularly good idea anymore (To let users do that sort of thing, security implications and what not)
