Magic words[edit]

Magic links[edit]

  • Typing an ISBN will automatically link it, without any special markup but this feature may soon be removed. It is better to use the {{ISBN}} template e.g. writing:
{{ISBN|9780205309023}}
will produce:
ISBN 9780205309023
  • Typing an RFC will automatically link it, but this feature may soon be deprecated. It is better to use the {{RFC}} template e.g. {{RFC|1459}}
  • Same with PubMed IDs: {{PMID|7597415}}

wgUseDynamicDates    = true;
wgExtraNamespaces    = array(100 => 'Portal',
                             101 => 'Portal_talk',
                             102 => 'Comments',
                             103 => 'Comments_talk');
wgBlockAllowsUTEdit  = true;
wgEnotifUserTalk     = true; # [[bugzilla:12975]]

Refresh

Possible abandonments (eligible for {{abandoned}} if last substantive edit was on or before December 11 2019):
