    random wiki page

    we now have a random wiki page on the front page (portal)
    it currently only displays pages from the default namespace (so it excluding D20: BRCS: etc etc)

    I love it too, except something isn't working. The heading is in dark blue, and when you press a link you don't get taken to the wiki page.

    I use Firefox

    The links to pages and to pages not yet created are identical. I have followed the links to pages. I have also hovered to see ("page name" not yet written) pop up.

    hmm dark blue? i am using FF (3.0.4) too.. all links and colors get the frontpage style...

    but i think i will have to refine it... i had to use an iframe instead of an PHP include.. somehow the include didnt work.
    with the include i can link the wiki CSS as well so the pages turn up to be the same as the wiki, instead of the render layout it is now...

    Great idea, with any luck reading will spark an interest or addition.

    I just got a boilerplate for Single Spell as random page. It would make sense to exclude the boilerplates as well from random selection.

    good good! hopefully people start using the boilerplates!

    there are other pages like some stubs that even make less sense...
    i am still working on a better data extraction tool so i can display it better.
    i think i will implement something that writes a random page every 5 min to a file, and include that. (less server intensive due to the queries)

    we can even make a list of featured articles after...

    but for now i think this will do... hopefully it does trigger more people to help out with filling the wiki...
