JDOC:TTP's intention was to create tutorials based on modular pieces of information, and the Help screens are currently using the Chunk16 namespace for this purpose. However, the popular and important FAQ page Security and Performance FAQs doesn't do any kind of transclusion. An important factor that prevents this solution from being really practical is that the "index" page, i.e. the one doing the transclusions, needs to be updated every time a new page is added. The DPL plugin can solve this situation. The following code can create the Security FAQ automatically:
<DPL> category = Security FAQ include = * format = ,\n== %TITLE% ==\n </DPL>
The only thing limiting the use of this solution is the lack of a guideline for FAQ items. For this solution to work, at least two conditions have to be fulfilled:
<noinclude>...</noinclude>tags, else their categories will be inherited by the index page.
If such a guideline can be created, I'd be glad to look into adapting all old FAQs to make this solution possible. Mvangeest 23:31, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
