Description Matthias Kahlert 2005-10-20 21:52:45 UTC
I don't know if this is the right place to ask, but i didn't find a better one, hope 
it is okay.

I have feature request for MediaWiki: I have built a Wiki containing lots of 
articles, text and sample codes I found on the web. What I would like to do is to set 
up an automatically created index or keyword list, like it can be also found at the 
end of books.

I want to put a simple tag to the end of the article, similar to Categories 

Result should be to get a page showing me an index, let's say for letter M, like:

* Microsoft Excel
 ** Article 1
 ** Article 2
 ** Article 3
* Microsoft Outlook
 ** Article 1
 ** Article 2
* Microsoft Word
 ** Article 1
and so on...

Yes, I know, I can do something like this with categories. But what I don't like with 

1. I have to create a new page for every keyword I use
2. I don't want to have a seperate page for every keyword, I want to have a list of 
all keywords starting with "M", and there showing directly the page links

Can something like this be done with existing extensions or tags? I didn't find

Not convinced that this would be useful to have in core. I suppose it could be
some sort of extension or custom modification, but it seems a bit specialist to
me, as described.

I'm going to go ahead and close this out. It would be very possible to do as an extension, but would not be something we'd do in core.
