Description e_veersma 2006-06-01 13:18:36 UTC
I wanted to use <DynamicPageList> in nl.wikipedia, but the software didn't
support the code. I asked some people where I could add the code to the software
and someone said I had to ask it here. So, hereby I would like to aks you to add
the code to the software of nl.wikipedia. 

Thank you very much, 
Comment 1 e_veersma 2006-12-18 14:12:33 UTC
I'm waiting now for almost a half year and still you didn'n turn the code on.
What's wrong?
Comment 2 Jelte (WebBoy) 2006-12-18 15:20:48 UTC
Please also enable DPL2. Thanks
Comment 3 Rob Church 2006-12-18 15:25:42 UTC
Surely it's redundant to have both? Out of interest, what would you be using the
extension for? We don't normally enable it all over the place since it's quite
expensive to run and not necessarily appropriate for an encyclopaedia.
Comment 4 e_veersma 2006-12-18 18:16:06 UTC
I wanted to use it for the portals, to show the new pages. 
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2006-12-18 23:17:03 UTC
We probably will never install DPL2. DynamicPageList itself is kind of unreliable.
Most likely a replacement for both which is more targeted and works more cleanly
would be better.
Comment 6 e_veersma 2006-12-19 10:54:22 UTC
but why is it installes at wikinews and not at wikipedia? It works there very
good, so why don't install it at wikipedia? 
Comment 7 Gero Scholz 2007-03-06 21:20:20 UTC
Is there a special reason why DPL is called "kind of unreliable"?
I made a lot of improvements (see [ the dpldemo website]).
And I think it can be quite useful.
If there are concerns please let me know on my user discussion page on the dpldemo website.

I would like to know whether there are new developments on this bug.
I came across the DynamicPageList functionality when I started working on wikinews the other day.
It is working excellent over there and I would very much like to be able to use it on (the Dutch) Wikipedia as well.

Comment 10 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-07-23 18:24:55 UTC
DynamicPageList has gotten grandfathered in on Wikinews and maybe a couple of other projects, but it's not viewed as suitable for enabling on larger wikis, last I heard.  It is not enabled on any Wikipedia or Wiktionary that I know of, for instance.  Wikinews tends to be small enough, and this extension critical enough to their purpose, that it's enabled there, but I don't think it's ever going to be enabled on any projects it isn't already enabled on.  I could be wrong, since these bugs (search, there are quite a lot of them) haven't been closed.

Reopening as blocker of bug 12423.

Tracking bugs don't work by resolving as duplicates - we mark them as blockers.
Comment 13 Mike.lifeguard 2009-04-13 23:34:58 UTC
This got done at some point; nlwiki's special:version shows DPL installed

> This got done at some point; nlwiki's special:version shows DPL installed

Sorry, that's incorrect; I must have been looking at the wrong wiki :(
Comment 15 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2010-11-03 11:56:11 UTC
Changing component to "Site requests"
Raising severity to "normal"
Make sure all bugs have the "shell" keyword
Comment 16 Rob Halsell 2011-02-02 20:54:09 UTC
DPL is now live on project.
Comment 17 Rob Halsell 2011-02-02 21:03:22 UTC
Had to revert, seems this didn't get a rewrite and has issues on larger projects like this.
Comment 18 Sam Reed (reedy) 2011-07-08 22:51:27 UTC
Marking later, needs extension dealing wtih
