General notices

  • JavaScript programmers are needed at WT:WPPORT. The portal system is being overhauled. They could really use some input from JS programmers on what is possible.
  • A project is under way to add short descriptions to all articles. This is mainly for the benefit of mobile users searching Wikipedia. Help is welcomed – please visit WikiProject Short descriptions to learn more.
  • The Portals Project is leading an overhaul and general upgrade of the entire portals system, including new automated features to make building, updating, and maintaining portals easier. We are also working on the development of components to make portals self-updating. You are welcome to join in on the fun.
  • Announcing SearchSuite. It provides user control over search results: it can strip them down to a single-spaced list, sort, and more. Most of its features are presented as menu item toggles to turn each feature on/off. Each menu-item-controlled feature works on the output of all the others, in both their on and off states. Feedback and feature suggestions welcome.
  • Following the autoconfirmed article creation trial (ACTRIAL), the community has decided that autoconfirmed status will henceforward be required in order to create new articles.
  • Do you have need for a specialized script that doesn't exist yet, or have an idea for a cool new script or gadget? Post requests and ideas at Wikipedia:User scripts/Requests.
  • Free subscriptions to high-quality paywalled journals, newspaper archives, and online reference works are available for Wikipedia editors. For more information, see Wikipedia:The Wikipedia Library/Databases

Tip of the day

Transclusion caveat

When you transclude a page (that is, automate the display of a page's content on another page), all its tags (like {{TOCRight}}) go with it, which will be implemented on the host page. Just add the following code if you want to add a right-aligned TOC to a page, but do not want it to be displayed on "derivative" pages:

<noinclude> {{TOCright}} </noinclude>

For a more detailed explanation, see Help:Wiki markup#Templates and transcluding pages.

To add this auto-updating template to your user page, use {{totd}}
