Moved from WoWWiki talk:Village pump#Shared Help live.21

I've just enabled Help:Shared Help on WoWWiki. Though it went live across Wikia several months ago, I did not originally enable it for us as the content once appeared above all local content (and we have a lot of local help content). However, it now shows below all local content, and we've got all (hopefully) the little bugs sorted out. Also, I just remembered.

This should mean we may be able to clear some of our own help pages, or at least cut them down a fair bit. The entry point is Help:Contents, as normal, with a full list of pages on Help:Index. Kirkburn  talk  contr 22:58, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Looks pretty good on the dark monaco skin. Where do we report bugs? Via the links called, "Suggest changes here"? --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 5:50 PM PST 9 Apr 2009
If there are bugs with the way shared help works, I suggest prodding me directly. If there are issues with the content of the shared help pages themselves, use the suggest changes link. Generally I'll pick up on those too, given that I watch the Wikia Help wiki fairly closely, but it's easier to work with that way. Kirkburn  talk  contr 14:41, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
Okay, I noticed at Help:Video demos, the embedded videos aren't showing up for me on FireFox 3.0.8 (Windows), but they play fine if I follow the link. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 11:31 AM PST 10 Apr 2009
I've added a note about it to the help page. At the moment, those videos use JS only existing on Wikia Help. Should be able to switch them to the new video extension soon, though. Kirkburn  talk  contr 16:04, 14 April 2009 (UTC)


As you may have read, the Help:Shared Help extension is live on WoWWiki. As a result, some of our help pages need an update to cut down all the duplicate content. The entry point is Help:Contents, and any help is appreciated. Kirkburn  talk  contr 13:25, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
