Description Jeff 2005-09-07 15:18:23 UTC
All foodplant pages on wikipedia should have the same information. Name, type of
plant, family information, history in human cultivation, history in culinary
use, current culinary use, cultivation, etc.

Imagine adding to the page [[Category-Format:Foodplant]] and having it put in
all those sections based on the :Category-Format:Foodplant page. Then, when you
said "[[John Locke]] was a philosopher" you could click on John Locke and put in
[[Category-Format:Biography]] and know that the next person who came along would
understand what sections were expected in a biography. You could always add
other sections, too, but it would be a standard format.

This doesn't make make much sense; having a category tag on a page can't "add 
sections" in any meaningful way.
Comment 2 Jeff 2005-09-07 20:12:56 UTC
Um...simple way: every time the page is saved, check the TOC against the TOC of
the category-format page, and a) move sections to match the category-format
page, and b) add any sections that are missing.
