Description Mike Połtyn 2005-09-18 14:30:03 UTC
I have an idea. I am working on Computer games wikiportal on pl.wikipedia and I am 
thinking about randomly showing of some articles. Now I use {{{{{CURRENTTIME}}}}} and 
manual list to do this. It is unpractical because on any edit of first article's 
paragraphs I need to edit also the template.

Used template (title changed):

{{Random article by CURRENTTIME|
| 00:00 = (...)
| 00:01 = (...)
| 00:02 = (...)
| 00:03 = (...)
| 00:04 = (...)
| 23:57 = (...)
| 23:58 = (...)
| 23:59 = (...)

You see: it is very unpractical. :) So my question is: Are you planning to add showing of 
first xx letters/words function to MediaWiki?

P.S. Sorry for my English. I have ''only'' ;) en-2 on Wikipedia:Babel status.

bug 3626: extension request: <intro>; together with {{intro:page}} and &action=intro

about *sample content* for a certain page

please open a separate request if you need a random generator mechanism

Not likely to do this; you can use <onlyinclude> as equivalent.
