Archived forum topics Edit

Well, I tried to address the issue by limiting the number of archived topics on each page, but that doesn't seem to be working. - Archduk3 14:41, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

I noticed one other problem with this archiving method -- any templates used are now admin protected. -- sulfur 18:29, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

I'm actually hoping that using labeled section transclusion along with the "includepage" option might solve this. If a section start tag was included in the nav bar, and ended with the archive notice, and that's enough to cascade the protection to the whole page, then hopefully the only templates also covered would be the nav bar and the notice. As I said before though, these aren't perfect, and I'm open to ideas. - Archduk3 23:19, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

Seems like we can't transclude just sections of articles, either because I did it wrong or because that extension isn't installed. Assuming the latter, can we get wikia to install it? - Archduk3 16:47, March 22, 2012 (UTC)

Give me the specific extension name, and I'll see what I can arrange. -- sulfur 17:24, March 22, 2012 (UTC)
Wait, never mind. I see it just above. I'll see what I can sort out. -- sulfur 17:24, March 22, 2012 (UTC)
Try it now. :) -- sulfur 19:14, March 22, 2012 (UTC)

Good news, it works, bad news, I still can't get it to work right in the dpl list, but I might be able to rig a workaround. This does seem to only protect the forum page so long as the transcluded section doesn't contain any templates (and as an aside we might be able to make the movie credits much nicer now), but it doesn't seem to work if the section you're trying to call is "in" a template on the page. - Archduk3 19:36, March 22, 2012 (UTC)

Crossed fingers here, but it seems to be working, if just not in the manner I had intended originally. I'll convert the other pages and see if this solves both problems at the same time. - Archduk3 19:45, March 22, 2012 (UTC)
