Questions / decisions for discussion[edit]

Which categories are in active use and which are outdated?

Category names tend to use underscores rather than spaces to separate words.

Actually, is this true anymore? Does it make a difference to performance, readability or links either way? --Mia (talk) 12:03, 8 March 2015 (PDT)

Categories change log[edit]

As categories are added for individual items they occasionally need tidying up.

I've 'Units with women's personal narratives' to the more general Women_in_WWI. --Mia (talk) 11:52, 8 March 2015 (PDT)

Things that need to be done but aren't quite neat tasks yet[edit]

  • Update categories used to reference 'units' rather than 'battalions' for future flexibility (and see if there's a better way to apply categories to new pages)
I've installed http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Replace_Text to change Battalions_without_personal_narratives to Units_needing_personal_narratives --Mia (talk) 04:36, 17 December 2014 (PST)
  • Add a WYSIWYG editor - the one currently used on Wikipedia doesn't seem stable yet and might conflict with other extensions used. --Mia (talk) 04:36, 17 December 2014 (PST)
  • Track down missing images (presumably after upgrade to 1.24) eg those without thumbnails on Special:ListFiles --Mia (talk) 16:21, 26 January 2015 (PST)
  • Sort out various pages reporting script errors in Category:Pages_with_script_errors --Mia (talk) 16:21, 26 January 2015 (PST)
