I want to suggest to enhance the way link texts
are generated, by introducing directives to links. This is esp. important for subpage
where directives are 'l' - lower case, 'c' - capitalize, 's' -
subpage. multiple directives can appear.
This seems redundant to the existing piped link mechanism and doesn't
seem useful for MediaWiki in general.
well, it will still allow me to use [[Some Page||l]] to see 'some page' in the
You're putting too much faith in the "subpage" mechanism - there is no
such thing as a subpage, really - it's just some special handling of
links and breadcrumbs that appears when a flag is enabled for certain
but i really like it. it allows me to create pages talking about the same topic in
different contexts, without needing to embed the context as part of the topic. In my
specific case, the wiki is to describe a product. so I have an introduction page for both
1.0 and 2.0 versions. without subpages, i have to name the pages '1.0
introduction' and '2.0 introduction' and every other page also. it makes
referencing pages awkward (always the pesky '1.0' prefix), makes generating nice
lists awkward (always the pesky '1.0' prefix), and makes reusing the same page in
two versions awkward (if it links to other pages, then i need to go over, replacing every
1.0 with 2.0). also, for example, FAQ pages (needing a pesky FAQ).
