How long does it take for the articles to be recognized by search engines like google and yahoo?

Google and other search engines index Wikimedia sites periodically. Googlebot works by looking for incoming links. It'll get into Google eventually. —Tom Morris (talk) 10:49, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

{{plain sister}}[edit]

I see that you have been creating and populating portals. Nice. Something that you may also with to consider when creating categories is the use of {{plain sister}} which is the basis of how we do portal links in all the headers, so basically it would be {{plain sister|portal=...}}. While it is a variance from the other sites, it allows us to add these links in a neater and consistent manner. — billinghurst sDrewth 10:01, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

Been and edited[edit]

To Stella Maris, I have been and done some editing. I will paste my text about header/footer boxes below this, though one thing that you may find easier is the use of the <poem> tag. I used it in the work and it does the same trick though hopefully easier. — billinghurst sDrewth 01:47, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

The mysterious Header toggle button[edit]

When proofreading in the Page: namespace and one has their toolbar turned on [Gadgets | Editing (tab) | Editing toolbar (checkbox)], one will see the button Button category plus.png, and clicking it toggles the header/footer on and off. In this space we put the relevant components for top and bottoms of pages by use of the template {{RunningHeader}}, so for example {{RunningHeader|Stanhope|3|Stanhope}} produces


I personally have my header/footer set to open in the Page: namespace and I achieved this by activating that option in my Gadgets. To also note that at this time, the use of the newer Wikieditor toolbar (Editing tab in My preferences) does not yet display all the tools that we utilise for proofreading. If you turn it off in your preferences you access the older toolbar and more editing options. — billinghurst sDrewth 01:47, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]
