Configure Namespaces with ManageWiki
Closed, ResolvedPublic


This is a tough one, but namespaces are one of the most popular requests, which is currently done by volunteers.

It would be very nice if we could also implement this with ManageWiki, but it won't be easy, since something to allow users to input multiple things needs to be added.

I believe this may be @John next large project so raising priority to normal.

As all other ManageWiki tasks are low priority, I don’t see why this needs to be any different.

It's nearly done, just a bit more testing + delete namespace ability as well as some helper functions to simplify stuff - should be ready for an end of 2018 release.

(for rough numbers; there's been over 800 lines of code written or changed for this change to be implement).

There will likely be a blog post coming out today capping the basics of the new function, a bit about it's impact on the ManageWiki project and preview to the function as well as a release date.
