MediaWiki talk:Sidebar

A suggestion: modifiying this to be like BioPerl. Not to be sheepish but users going from one to the other would navigate easier. I would do it but it seems that the page is locked… –Foisys 13:37, 6 February 2006 (EST)


Sylvain - I made you a sysop/Bureaucrat (just what you’ve always wanted!) so you can edit the sidebar and generally wreak havoc in french and english. –Jason 14:15, 6 February 2006 (EST)

Hi Jason - Thanks! –Foisys 14:36, 6 February 2006 (EST)

I suggest an entry linking to the page BioJava:Download.

Editing the Sidebar

I have found that after editing the sidebar you sometimes need to log out to actually see the changes you made when you return to the main page. This might be an Internet Explorer specific thing. –Mark 21:55, 7 February 2006 (EST)

I think it is a problem of the MediaWiki, e.g. if you edit a page (e.g. just make a dummy edit, insert a whitespace) the sidebar gets updated on this page. I had the same experiences with Firefox – Martin 05:20, 8 February 2006 (EST)

Usually a forced reload will work or if you add ?action=purge to the end of the URL it should re-generate it for you. –Jason 07:56, 8 February 2006 (EST)
