Description Jesse (Pathoschild) 2007-01-10 05:47:18 UTC
Please activate [[m:DynamicPageList2]] (preferred) or [[m:DynamicPageList]] on
the English Wikisource. Both extensions are already in Wikimedia SVN.
Instructions for their installation and activation are respectively at
[[m:DynamicPageList2#Source_and_Installation]] and the top of [[m:DynamicPageList]].

This was discussed at [[s:Wikisource:Scriptorium#DynamicPageList]] and received
unanimous support.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-01-10 09:33:14 UTC
Please indicate which features of these extensions you need to use; both are
potentially very expensive.
Comment 2 Jesse (Pathoschild) 2007-01-11 00:52:28 UTC
The desired features are listing the top few pages in a category by date (mostly
for maintenance tasks) and simple category intersection. Categories on the
English Wikisource are small, usually under a few hundred pages, so it should
not be as potentially expensive as it would be on en-Wikipedia. A closer
comparison in terms of category size would be Meta or en-Wikinews, where the
extension is already enabled.

DynamicPageList2 has many features that we could find all kinds of uses for, but
DynamicPageList would be enough if DPL2 is much more potentially expensive.
Comment 3 Jesse (Pathoschild) 2007-01-11 03:47:28 UTC
There is a similar request at bug 6758: 'Activation of DynamicPageList2 on
Comment 4 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2007-05-20 13:09:54 UTC
Removing DPL2 from the subject as it will never be installed (bug 8672)
Comment 5 Dovi Jacobs 2007-08-31 09:54:24 UTC
Several heavy contributors at he.wikisource have also requested this, so please apply it there as well.
Comment 6 Ori Miller 2007-09-03 17:00:47 UTC
I used it on a site (which now moved to he.wikisource) hosted on and it was great.

Reopening as blocker of bug 12423.

Changing component to "Site requests"
Raising severity to "normal"
Make sure all bugs have the "shell" keyword
