Naming subpages[edit]

"Works that have chapters/sections should be numbered, not named..." So Omniana/Volume 1/Chapter 1 instead of Omniana/Volume 1/Mirrors. Please refer to Wikisource:Style guide#Page titles.

Thanks for the comment. They're not really chapters or consecutive sections, they're independent articles, a bit like the entries in [Brittanica] or [[1], so I took my lead from there and used the article names for section names. I really don't think that calling the article on Mirrors "Chapter 1" or "Section 1" would make much sense. --Philbarker (talk) 08:37, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
But the source copy you're using has them numbered, so we would follow the numbers per our MoS. --EncycloPetey (talk) 15:19, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
The work is a collection of articles, each was published originally in a magazine, and some later in another collection MoS: "When a work is a collection, then the subpages are works in their own right (e.g. poetry), and the section name should be for that of the work." I can add numbers, so Omniana/Volume 1/1. Mirrors. seems the way to go.Philbarker (talk) 16:16, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

The preference is for numbering, but names are used in edited collections. Mixing both numbers and names is generally a bad idea. --EncycloPetey (talk) 16:22, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
Edited collection seems like a good description of Omniana. Published originally in the Atheneum by Southey and Coleridge (anonymously) Edited by Southey (again anonymously) into the 1812 edition; and later the Coleridge contributions + others were put into other collections (e.g. "Coleridge's Table Talk and Omniana", ed H N Coleridge (1836) ) Philbarker (talk) 16:36, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
