wiki collections[edit]

Swept from en:pub

There is an extension available to this wiki that would let people create collections of their favorite pages and then they could even make their own travel book. This would be a great feature for the site. You can read about it here:

Thanks for the great site. I appreciate the work you guys have done. I help run a much smaller site called --DaleDe 18:35, 3 June 2009 (EDT)

Yes, at Wikitravel Press we're already discussing this with the friendly folks at PediaPress. However, Wikitravel's extensions (eg. listings) would require customization of the normal PediaPress engine and they have their hands full with Wikipedia at the moment, so this is still some ways off.

Book creator[edit]

Swept in from en:pub:

Wikipedia now has a feature that lets users create their own books, exportable as PDF or other formats.

Could we add that here? They use categories as one way to select articles for inclusion; is there some way to use our breadcrumbs for that? Pashley 22:21, 30 December 2009 (EST)

It's called the Collections extension and it's a MediaWiki plugin built by PediaPress. I floated the idea of installing it to IB about a year and a half ago and have prodded them occasionally every now and then afterward, but I'm sure you'll be shocked to hear that I haven't heard back.
