Hello! I am curious as to how I can set thumbnails for wiki pages. These thumbnails appear on category pages, in the popular articles sidebar, etc. Is it possible to set a thumbnail for a page? If so, how? Thanks!
It is correct that the REDIRECT command will overwrite/hide all the content on the page. It is recommended that the page's content be blanked, but some like to use it as "hidden content" in the possible event the redirect command might get removed.
And Categories should not be used on Redirect pages except as mentioned, in very rare exceptions (basically, leave to Staff to do if it needs doing).
Now, don't confuse REDIRECTS with DISAMBIGUATION pages. A different animal which also has a few standard practices of minimalism, but exceptions are less rare.
As an example of categorized redirects: I’ve categorized all pagenames that are real names. Including redirects. Mostly because I like long lists of alphabetized names. Similarly, if you’ve got a list of items and categories only apply to some of the items.
Another good use of categorizing redirects is for misspellings. Often redirects are used to redirect to the correctly spelled version of the page, so you can track the misspelling redirects with categories.
I don't know. I am kind of curious to find out if you can have a category thumbnail for redirect pages. I suppose it depends on which version of the page gets searched for the image selection process.
Same. Tried it out on one of my wikis, I reckon it'll take a while to update. I doubt it'll stick.
