Hi Jesse,

I added "Use of plurals" using the inputbox and added the link. I was going to suggest that we use {{SUBPAGENAME}} instead of {{PAGENAME}} in for the inputbox template so all of the guidelines don't end up under the S for style. However, it does not appear to work in the Wikieducator name space. In addition I noticed that the back links that automatically appear on other subpages just below the title don't show up and {{ShortTitle}} does not work in the Wikieducator namespace. This strange since I seem to remember them working in the User namespace. Anyway, using the mytitle template seems like a great choice since it works!

I looked up some info on the magic words at MediaWiki. It turns out that SUBPAGENAME isn't working because the WikiEducator namespace does not have subpages enabled. This is not a surprise as the only namespace that enabled them by default is the main namespace. So, the question is, now, do we enable it? In order to do this, one has to go into the files to add a line of code. It can't be done from the client side.

I posted a message in the tech discussion asking if there are any reasons not to have the subpages enabled in the Wikieducator namespace and if not, could they enable it. I don't think it should be a problem since it seems to be enabled in the User and Workgroup namespaces.

Workgroup isn't actually a namespace. The "Workgroup:" bit is actually part if the title, which is why the talk page is actually at "Talk:Workgroup". This is a situation I've worked with before, and we called it a "pseudo" namespace. I'm not sure why WE has done things, but in regards to subpages, they work because the pages are actually in the main namespace, which does have them enabled.

Interesting. I did not notice that. Maybe it makes it easier for somethings. Subpages are now enabled for the Wikieducator namespace.

Get down with your bad self.
