Some bits[edit]

Welcome to the DNB project, it is one of our quality and successful projects. You have picked up some of our peculiarities quickly, and I have seen that you have quickly found your way into our Page: namespace, and are proofing. Which is excellent. Do feel that you are able entitled and qualified to progress the proofreading progress of a work to AMBER or once proofread onto GREEN.

I would also like to point you to {{hyphenated word start}} which I have used on Page:Dictionary of National Biography volume 60.djvu/75 and {{hyphenated word end}} which I used on the subsequent page to manage the end of page hyphenation. While we do not intend to preserve the word break hyphenation on a page, we do try to maintain it at the end for proofreading.

Again, welcome. — billinghurst sDrewth 23:57, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

and this bit ...

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. — billinghurst sDrewth 23:57, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Yep, sections need a begin and end per page[edit]

Sections are a little quirky, as you have found you need a begin and end tag. There is some older information about sections at Wikisource:labeled section transclusion and the more updated, though somewhat more generic, at mw:Extension:Labeled Section Transclusion. — billinghurst sDrewth 04:00, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

The Signal[edit]

Thank you for The Signal by Garshin! He is a great but unfamiliar Russian author with unfortunate fate. If you need help with Russian, write at ru:Викитека:Вавилонский форум. -- Sergey kudryavtsev (talk) 21:56, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
