WPCleaner

Postby qwaletee » Mon Jun 02, 2014 7:24 pm

WPCleaner, a tool used by most Wikipedia sites for page maintenance, is now available for Waze's Wiki. It is helpful for:
* analyzing pages for syntax errors
* repairing redirects (especially double-redirects after renaming a page)
* spellcheck
* translation

Kudos to NicoV, its author, for supporting us. Kent and I worked on its configuration.

It is a separate Java UI that allows you to search pages, and their linked/referenced (reverse-linked) pages, and perform wiki markup analysis and global search and replace across multiple pages.

It is NOT a tool for beginners.

Big thanks go to Qwaletee for getting this ball rolling for us.

LOL

The good news is the tool will let us fix problems that we don't notice or realize are occurring in some of our pages. It will mostly save time for the Wiki admins trying to ensure consistency in the Wiki.

You don't have to remain a beginner!

Very true. But this young grasshopper has much to learn in the way of the Wiki.

I see there is still no update since the May 21 release. Have you heard anything separately from the author when we should expect the next release?
