Page Inclusion[edit]

I think this is a relatively difficult feature request. Here's the scenario: I currently update the two most recent news entries by hand on my main page. Each entry uses a template and has it's own page with a discussion link to the talk page. There's a link to a page for all news that uses page inclusion for all of the news entries. It would be nice to see a feature that could find a certain number of pages from the main news page and display a defined amount of entries that look like {{News:2008-01-30}}. --Steve 05:46, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

I Think I understand what you mean.

  • Each news entry is on their own page.
  • You have a page containing the links to all news (in the form of {{*}})
  • You want to be able to iterate through a set number of entries
  • Include them on a page

This sounds quite possible that my extension is able to provide this feature. I will have a look into this today.
