Codeblock formatting

Hey everyone,

Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this, but is it possible to change the formatting of codeblocks that appear with the <source> tag? I see Wikipedia's C++ article has neat dotted borders that appear around blocks of code, but using the same <source lang="cpp"> tag on this wiki doesn't seem to add that (it nicely still does the syntax highlighting, however). Is there a way to add those borders? --Culix 02:39, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Proposal: move glossary

Since the glossary of terms is quite large, would anyone object to moving it on to its own page? Or is it preferable for some reason to keep it on the main page? --Culix 04:22, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

I have moved the glossary to its own page. Speak up if you think that's bad. Along the way I had to kill the links to the 'on line service' page to be able to save (see this discussion); they will need to be restored after we decide how to deal with the spam filter. --Culix 12:42, 26 June 2009 (UTC)


Would anyone be opposed to making the Breadcrumb at the top of the page a template? I am currently unable to save any page that uses the breadcrumb links because the word 'onl ine' in the link to 'On line Service Developer' triggers the wiki's spam filter :-/ (I can't even use that word while typing this post). e.g. I had to remove that link from the Articles page in order to save any changes. Perhaps a wiki admin could create a Template:Breadcrumb template page which could be used at the top of the main pages? It might require some wiki coding to get the links right. Alternatively, could we relax that word out of the spam filter, since it's used in the breadcrumb? --Culix 14:30, 10 June 2009 (UTC)--Culix 14:30, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

The word 'online' has been removed from the spam filter, so saving pages should be easier now. --Culix 14:46, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
I fixed this today by adding the Template:NavBar template. It seems mediawiki is smart enough not to link to the current page, which is nice. This doesn't follow all of the same behaviour as a breadcrumb, so I named it NavBar instead. If you want to change the behaviour or the name feel free to comment :) --Culix 04:16, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
