Shortcut maintenance[edit]

See User:Teratornis/Tasks#Shortcuts for details about my attempt to help maintain Appropedia's collection of shortcuts. --Teratornis 14:07, 17 January 2011 (PST)

Aliases[edit]

Do we want more aliases, besides "A:"?

Each alias is just a single line in Appropedia's LocalSettings file - e.g. so far we have:

$wgNamespaceAliases['A'] = NS_PROJECT; // Make A:Foo point to Appropedia:Foo

I don't see any downside to adding H:, P: and U:, but...

  • We don't want aliases for the Category namespace - redirects aren't appropriate in the Category namespace, so we can't add shortcuts there.
  • We probably want a policy for shortcuts in the user namespace. E.g. if you want a shortcut there, (A) you need to register the account that you use as a shortcut (to avoid having Foo as a shorcut, then a new user registering as User:Foo), and (B) don't create a bunch of them.
