Sandbox pages no longer listed in the SB category?

Post by Roy_043 » Mon Mar 23, 2020 3:05 pm

These two Sandbox pages that I have created belong to the SB category:
https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Std_File_Menu:Sandbox
https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Std_Menu:Sandbox

But fore some reason they are no longer listed here:
https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Category:Sandbox

Why is that?

They do appear in the Category:Sandbox. As long as you include [[Category:Sandbox]] they will be listed.

By the way, I suggest you don't create a page with a name like that "Std_File_Menu:Sandbox". You should use the opposite, "Sandbox:Std_File_Menu".

The first name should be a namespace, "Sandbox", and the part after the colon ":" should be your page name. This has to do with the "namespaces" of the wiki. I don't think your intention is to create a "Std_File_Menu" namespace. See https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Namespace

We don't need too many namespaces, the main one is enough for us, and in this case, you can put your work in progress pages inside the Sandbox namespace.

They do again now. Something must have been reset.

Regarding the names of my SB pages: I took inspiration from the name of this page:
https://wiki.freecadweb.org/FreeCADDocu:Sandbox

Probably the category is more important than the name of the page.

Yes, this is true.

And that is an old page, so it doesn't really follow any standard. But as you can see, the Category:Sandbox has mostly pages with Sandbox at the beginning.
