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.

You don't have to remain a beginner!

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?


On June 2, he said he had updated it and tested it against Waze' Wiki. What makes you think it has not been updated?
