The top category

The top level category of Template Wiki's category system is on the wiki's front page. You should be able to browse the whole site from there. Subcategories should assist with navigation of the wiki. Every wiki page should be in a category, and will often be appropriate in more than one. Every category should be a subcategory of at least one higher category.

The wiki has the Category Tree extension enabled, seen here on the right. Rob Kam (talk) 07:51, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

Wanted templates

In case you'd like particular templates to be added to those already available, if you can't import them yourself please list them here. N.B. Currently (Feb 2018) Miraheze backend issues are preventing imports.

Done :-) except {{Infobox Wikipedia user}} is now {{Infobox Miraheze user}}. --Rob Kam (talk) 17:19, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
  • {{Support}} (and related voting templates), might be useful on other wikis. Reception123 (talk) 18:38, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
Then please import these. --Rob Kam (talk) 19:14, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
Ok, mi pedido sería tener Plantilla:Resultados_electorales de Wikipedia en español (entre otras plantillas). ¿se puede? además, estaría bien que las plantillas se categorizen por ejemplo «Category:Templates from English Wikipedia» o simplemente «Category:Templates from English Wikipedia» Wiki1776 (talk) 19:22, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
Yes to categorising templates, somebody just has to be bold and go for it. Also which ones are primary and which ones are only supporting? --Rob Kam (talk) 21:20, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
Rob Kam, he hecho dos propuestas de categorías. Espero comentarios, si tienes alguna propuesta puedes agregarlo en mi sandbox. Wiki1776 (talk) 22:18, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
Those are fine but I'd categorise by function. Anyhow there can be more than one scheme. --Rob Kam (talk) 23:40, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
Ah, bueno. Solo sería agregar también esas categorías, ver Proposal 3 Wiki1776 (talk) 01:33, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
{{Support}} (and related voting templates) are now included. --Rob Kam (talk) 23:40, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
Could {{Infobox settlement}} and {{Infobox information appliance}} be added too? EzekielT (talk) 22:33, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
Done. Rob Kam (talk) 19:32, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

Extension:MobileFrontend instead of scary transclusion?

By the way mw:Extension:MobileFrontend has Testing with articles on a foreign wiki (live data):

"MobileFrontend can now be configured locally to render articles from other MediaWiki instances. This can help you debug problems locally instead of importing articles which may have dependencies on various templates and Wikibase identifiers from production to your local instance. This is not recommended for production usage.

The code below will turn your local MediaWiki mobile site into a Wikivoyage viewer:

$wgMFContentProviderClass = 'MobileFrontend\ContentProviders\MwApiContentProvider';
$wgMFMwApiContentProviderBaseUri = 'https://en.m.wikivoyage.org/w/api.php';

This is particularly useful for testing different mobile skins using the wgMFDefaultSkinClass config option."

I have noticed the "This is not recommended for production usage." and suspect this would be regarded as a security risk on Miraheze.

There's a demo on YouTube at How to pull content from remote wikis in your local MediaWiki instance.

Interwiki transclusion needs fixing

Interwiki transclusion needs fixing, e.g. for infobox, while interwiki transcluded templates with local modules function properly, those without local modules don't. (See Maniphest T2697) Rob Kam (talk) 07:53, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
