Description Catherine Woodgold 2006-12-03 18:01:08 UTC
Please provide a feature that allows admins to easily add a custom sidebar to an
individual page, and/or custom links within the interwikis, like the "Complete
list" item appearing as the last interwiki on the [[:en:wikipedia:Main
Page|English Wikipedia Main Page]].  The "Complete list" item apparently only
appears on Java-enabled browsers, though.  Perhaps let each Wikipedia configure
which type of user can add a sidebar that appears on all pages and which type of
user can add a sidebar to an individual page.  

Note that in future many pages may have too many interwikis to display and may
need a way to link to a common list of interwikis perhaps on Meta or Commons; 
e.g. there could be one file on Commons with all the interwikis for Vitamin, and
then Vitamin articles in each language could choose to list a few interwikis and
then have a link marked "complete list" going to the list of interwikis on
Commons;  then the Vitamin interwikis would only have to be maintained in one
place. I mention this so you can think about implementing the sidebar in a way
that will be compatible with that possible future direction. Custom sidebars may
also have other uses. Thank you for considering my suggestion.

This is an entirely separate issue.  If you want this implemented, please open a
separate bug.

I'd say that's now bug 64793.
