What can this extension do?[edit]

This extension displays simple list of pages from only one namespace, that are referenced by other pages, but do not exist. This is similar to Special:Wantedpages, but can be embedded in a page's content. There are no options to limit number of items shown, or format the output differently. The list shows wanted pages the are linked to from even only one other page.


In the place where you want to have the list put the following code:

  namespace = Template

This will display list of wanted templates. Replace Template namespace with any namespace (including custom one) you wish.
