Extension: DidYouMean[edit]

  • Voting on: Turning on (via bugzilla) User:Hippietrail's DidYouMean extension on en.wiktionary.org, to auto-fill the {{see}} lines of every applicable entry at the WikiMedia software layer. A successful vote here will show general consensus that the Wiktionary community desires this software extension; that automatic/dynamic additions to the navigation "See also" links are desired.

  6. Symbol support vote.svg Support DAVilla 13:55, 2 September 2007 (UTC) although I would like to encourage Hippitrail to review the issue of order, even if it's a partial order i.e. keep the order of any explicit see terms, and fill in the rest where it seems most appropriate.
    I'm pretty sure he will when he's back online. If it goes a month or two, we could ask Brion to tweak it. --Connel MacKenzie 08:30, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Someone somewhere asked for a copy of the code. I ran across bugzilla:8648 which has it. Sorry for the delay. --Connel MacKenzie 21:30, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
