Wiki Tools

The WikiTools are special pages which can help you watch the state and evolution of this wiki more easily. They are listed and described below.

WikiTools/PagesIndex
Lists an alphabetically ordered index of all the pages in the wiki. It's a nice, organized way to find what you need when all other means fail. You can think of this as the wiki sitemap.
Pages that link to a certain page
You can get a list of such pages simply by clicking on the page title, which is a link. This will actually perform a text search for the page title, so you can get the same result by searching for that page's title from anywhere in the wiki, using the search form.
WikiChanges
These are tools which help you to track changes to several or all pages at once.
InterWiki
This page serves to define shortcut wiki links to other wikis.
WikiTools/OrphanedPages
Lists wiki pages that no other page links to. These are possibly discarded pages which are no longer useful or contain old stuff. Consider deleting their contents if so, in order to rid the wiki of dead weight. If, however, they prove to contain useful information, consider linking to them or cutting and pasting their contents to the appropriate page. Orphaned pages won't go away by themselves.
WikiTools/WantedPages
Lists links that look like wiki pages, but haven't been created yet. They could really be wannabe wiki pages, but they may just be words interpreted as such by the wiki erroneously (such as NewsForge). Consider creating and adding useful content to the appropriate ones.
WikiTools/PageLinks
Counts how many links to other wiki pages each page contains, and outputs a list ordered by those numbers. Multiple links to the same page will count each time they appear. This serves to identify "nexus" pages. Please verify that such pages aren't overcrowded with links.
WikiTools/PageReferences
Counts how many times a page is referenced by another wiki page, and outputs a list ordered by those numbers. Multiple references from the same page still count each time they appear. Self-references also count. This serves to identify very useful pages, but it may also help to identify link abuse.
WikiTools/PageSizes
Produces a list where each page appears with its current size (in bytes). The list is ordered by that size, with the biggest pages at the top. If a page is too big please consider if it's time to break it into smaller sections. If it's very small check if it's not junk or in need of contents.
WikiTools/DeletionScheduledPages
When an existing page is emptied of all contents, it will be targeted by the automatic page cleaner. The deletion, however, won't happen immediately, but only after a certain interval has passed, in order to give other people a chance to decide if the page should really dissapear. This page lists such pages. Please check their history and make sure they really should go away. Once a page is deleted it's gone forever!
WikiTools/ContributorList
An alphabetical list of all the people who contributed to the wiki.
WikiTools/VisitorCount
A list of all the pages on the wiki, ordered by number of distinct visitors.
