http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ministers_of_the_environment which was
raised by an advogatian
today just made me shake my head and look for a way to report an idea to you,
which i believe to
be of paramount importance to wikipedia.
the concept of "symbolic links".
it should be possible to mark a subsection of a page - or an entire page - with
a name of
some kind (the idea of WikiName#SubSection springs to mind) such that the entire
can be pulled "inline" into another page.
in this way, meta-pages can be created.
example: i write some technical material, as part of some research. it looks better
when that research material is spread out across several wiki pages.
however, when it comes to writing an _article_ - or a book - the organisation of
that information is _much_ better aligned in a single page.
... must i cut/paste that content and maintain it several times?
if i had symbolic linking, the answer would be "no".
"Symbolic link" is very misleading here, since what you're asking for is a way
to be able to label a section of a page, and then transclude that in a larger
page (the converse can already be done).
Changing this to an extension installation request, since this is effectively
what LST does.
oh, is it? cool!
well, me computer science posix bod. symlink was the closest analogy i could
glad to hear there's something like it already!
