MediaWiki talk:Sidebar

From Hattrick

There's a whole lot of "categories" and links here, and some more will probably appear. I'm not sure this is the correct way of displaying them - there's already too much clutter, as a total of 27 links are currently presented in the sidebar. They're not even alphabetically sorted, so usability is at its minimum. I suggest drastically decreasing the number of links, and creating valid lists on the Main Page. --Catalyst2950 16:24, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

I fully agree, it's good that the sidebar is locked but at the moment it's no good. Let's present / collect some alternatives here. -- GM-Lau 16:28, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

I'm going to play in the Sandbox for a while. I think a nice alternative would be to have several floated DIV's in various colours, that group certain link categories. --Catalyst2950 16:42, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

Here we go: Meta:Sandbox. I have created nine nice little floated standards-compliant boxes (generic block elements), which means they happily play along with different screen resolutions and different font sizes. The default size could be decreased a bit to make three of them horizontally fit in 1024x768. However, editing them on a per-box basis doesn't really work. Maybe MediaWiki doesn't like empty lines. --Catalyst2950 17:11, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

I see you implemented those on the main page: nice! --GM-Lau 13:53, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

I'd basically pair up a lot of the links

Changing Helper Applications into CHPP is somewhat misleading, as some Helper Applications are not CHPP. There are a number of tools that don't require login or any contact with Hattrick itself. --EchoMan 10:46, February 3, 2009 (UTC)

Didn't quite realize it was a new page altogether. So is Helper Applications being dropped in favout of CHPP? I always thought helper applications was a good page to have in the menu for an easy-to-find reference to the available sites and tools. More so than a set of CHPP guidelines which would be of interest ro far less of the wiki visitors. --EchoMan 10:48, February 3, 2009 (UTC)
Good point. I changed that back. --Jhattara 14:02, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
What is that page history link? Also one other thing bugging me: we're link to the categories newbie tips + competitions. Maybe we should link to articles instead. It's a bit confusing, but that's maybe just me and a minor point anyway, the new is already much better as it used to be and luckily we don't even need HTs to change it...--Mod-Karlthegreat 14:10, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
