I'm trying to set up some interwiki links. But there always seems to be a caching issue. So far I've done hitch, trash, cs and csgroup, if you want any others, just let me know. guaka 15:43, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Wikivoyage would be nice --MrTweek 10:20, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
would it be possible to make a page about interwiki in couchwiki (brief explanation and how to use it ?) Bikepunk 01:13, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
- Wikipedia has a nice article about interwiki :) Of course it could be useful to have an article here as well, feel free to start it, and note that this wiki is license compatible with Wikipedia, so you can copy parts from the Wikipedia article. guaka 10:42, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
Guaka, Are you the only person able to make interwiki links ? If no, how can we do that ? Bikepunk 15:34, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
If we could find an extension to display a context-sensitive sitemap based on the categories of a page, wouldn't that be awesome? Maybe this could even be done with jquery, so the browser could cache the category information between requests, and it doesn't add up to page size.
(maybe "sitemap" is the wrong term here, because I only want to show related stuff)
I could work on that when I have time.

Basic Organization of the wiki
Well there are a few pages and enough interest to start talking a little bit about how to organize the wiki. So far there seem to be 3 kinds of pages- location guide pages, pages about the wiki, and other pages. The later two will sort themselves out but the location guides follow an obvious logical hierarchy- World, region, country, (state,province), city, and extra pages attached to one of those levels like "Cycling in Germany" or "100 things to do in.." simple wiki links and templates could keep the pages organized according to the above logic and categories could help enforce it. does everyone pretty much agree on this?
I also want to say that generic categories like "Cities" or "country guides" are not useful and should be avoided. what do you guys think? --Metal.lunchbox 04:16, 24 October 2009 (UTC)
- Hey Lunchbox! I agree. Feel free to remove those generic categories. guaka 22:39, 24 October 2009 (UTC)
Now you can use your login on the English couchwiki also for the other languages (so far French and Italian). And you can use images that have been uploaded here in other languages as well. guaka 22:56, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
It's now possible to directly use images from Wikimedia Commons!
Just find the image you want to use and put it here, e.g. [[File:Bandeau_France.png|300px]] for from http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Bandeau_France.png guaka Almost all images on Wikimedia Commons have been checked on copyrights, and it's highly encouraged to use them, and also to upload your own work there and then use it here. :) guaka 23:35, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
Main Page layout
The Main Page is getting messy and ugly : here is a first draft/attempt to make it a bit better. (I would like to know how to use the "class=" in mediawiki, I didn't find anything clear with google). What do you think about it ? Bikepunk 22:26, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
