Things noobs might want to give a try on...

Fixing displaytitle[edit]

Make the DISPLAYTITLE magic keyword work properly:

  • Store data in ParserOutput, not OutputPage, so that it caches properly and doesn't do generally really wrong things
  • Validate the string value to ensure it normalizes to the canonical title
    • eg, ensure that $currentTitleObj->equals( Title::newFromText( $displayTitleText ) )
    • if you don't do this, then page titles can no longer be cut and pasted reliably, screwing up the wiki
