Now that Wikibooks is promoting subpages (see [[b:Wikibooks:Naming policy]]) for
writing book chapters, it would be very useful to have an easy way for linking
to sibling subpages, i.e. to different chapters of the current book.
Inside [[Wikijunior Solar System/Mercury]] one could write:
The next planet going away from the [[../Sun|]] is [[../Venus|]].
Note that I have also included the feature defined in #3114
This feature would also facilitate future book title changes.
That would be [[/Sun]].
No, that would be [[../Sun|]] or from [[Wikijunior Solar System/Mars]] it would
be [[/Phobos]], as in [[Wikijunior Solar System/Mars/Phobos]].
This is a very common naming convention on Wikibooks, and a way to designate sub
modules... essentially sub chapters. Wikibooks is complicated in that the 32K
limit MediaWiki software "requests" that you keep each page within is a serious
limiting factor. Even a single chapter of a book is often considerably longer
than 32K, which the point of Wikibooks is precisely to write content that is
longer in nature.
There would also be a need to "move up", so something like [[..]] would move you
down to the "parent" article/book module.
[[/Foobar]] *is* a sibling link if you're on a subpage, unless we've got some serious bugs
in subpage handling that nobody's mentioned.
No, [[/Stuff]] or [[/Foobar]] is to a subpage from the main parent page.
However, [[../BarFoo]] does seem to work just fine for me in Wikibooks when
going between two different sibling sub pages. [[../]] also seems to work just
fine for going "back" to the parent page.
Ok, [[../|Parent]] and [[../Foobar]] works for me. I think I tested it, but I
may have done it before the feature was implemented.
Should I close the bug?
