Rosetta Code:Village Pump/Add link anchors to Language Category pages
This is a particular discussion thread among many which consider Rosetta Code.
Suggestion to add Anchors to specific language examples
I think it would be helpful if all the Language Category pages (ie., /wiki/Category:[lang]) had the example links include an anchor to the specific language example (eg., /wiki/MD5#Rust or /wiki/Leap_year#Ada )
- +1. I found this site with the expectation to learn one new language based on another, so I'm only ever interested in 2 languages on each task page and the rest is clutter I have to wade through. This would be a massive UX improvement for a (theoretically) small change.
- It is unlikely that the site code is going to change to do this. Mediawiki doesn't support that by default, and no-one with sufficient permissions to hack the functionality in seems to have the time or enthusiasm to implement and support it.
- Anyway, it would be nice if some people would give it a try and maybe get some feedback. If you don't have Tampermonkey or Greasemonkey installed, install one of those first; navigate to the applet page (Github gist), on that page, click on the file name, (Language_links.user.js), then click the Raw button. *monkey will then offer to automatically install. Install it then navigate to a Rosettacode Language Category page and click on some task links. Leave feedback. Have the appropriate amount of fun. --Thundergnat (talk) 15:42, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
