Description Kevin Baas 2005-06-01 17:38:45 UTC
Regarding DynamicPageList (DPL) for WikiNews
I've got a number of requests, parameters to add:

*sort by: (*date, last change, name, etc.) date - wikinews has date categories
in the format "June 1, 2005".  every news article should be in one of these
**primary and secondary criteria?
*order: (asc or desc)

*notcategory: logical AND NOT with list items (example: notcategory: disputed)
*style: (bulleted(default), numbered, none)
*prefix: (none(default), date, category (specified via a supercategory,
"category:" is trimmed when displayed)) -put the prefix before the article name,
w/a colon after it. for example: "June 1, 2005: Joe decides to have a hamburger"
*trimtemplates: don't list templates
*trimcategories: don't list categories
*suppresserrors: don't display errors

[please try to make the summary of bugs describe the issue succinctly but precisely]
Comment 2 micki kaufman 2005-06-17 03:29:59 UTC
A 'notcategory' feature as mentioned in the original post would be extremely
good. I may code one.
Comment 3 IlyaHaykinson 2005-06-28 01:09:06 UTC
In v1.2 (see cvs, plus deployed on en.wikinews) I added:

- sorting (parameter "ordermethod", values in {categoryadd, lastedit}, default
- order (parameter "order", values in {descending, ascending}, default descending)
- style (parameter "mode", values in {unordered, ordered, none}, default unordered)
- suppress errors (parameter "suppresserrors", value must be in {true}, default
is not set)
- exclude category (parameter "notcategory", value equivalent to the parameter

Documentation is at [[m:DynamicPageList]]
Comment 4 Chad H. 2009-02-05 22:28:04 UTC
As far as I can tell, all of these params (except maybe style?) have been implemented in DPL. Style can be achieved with CSS.
