following the great Docs re-organisation, what do I type to link to http://docs.moodle.org/dev/How_to_apply_a_patch ?
We are no longer using namespaces in the Dev docs as this wiki will only contain Dev docs. Links to the old developer: namespace will be automatically linked to the page in the new Dev docs. I have to set up manual inter-wiki redirects for Dev docs pages that weren't in the developer: namespace.
Today I begin looking for lost pages and manually fixing broken links. Fun!
If (or I should say when) anyone finds a problem with the Dev docs, please let me know.
Can we please re-consider that.
Surely we should enable http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Links#Interwiki_links
So, I should be able to to type [ [dev:How to apply a patch] ] (without the extra spaces) both in the User Moodle docs, and also here where we are using the Moodle filter.
Also, can we set it up so that in the Dev docs, I can just type [ [user:Debugging] ] to link to the latest version of the user docs, so that we don't have to udpate all such links when we copy the docs 20 -> 21.
I suggest we only have specific URLs for older versions, so [ [user19:Debugging] ], or something like that. I guess [ [user20:Debugging] ] should be made to work right now, even though mostly people should use user:Debugging.

OK. I get your question now.
Yes, we will have inter-wiki links. We are currently setting that up. We are planning to use the namespaces en: and docs:
We now have InterWiki links working between the Dev docs and the User docs.
To link from the User docs to a Dev docs page use (without spaces): [ [ : dev : Page_name | Page link text ] ]
To link from the Dev docs to the latest version of the English User docs use (without spaces): [ [ : en : Page_name | Page link text ] ]
To link to other langes in the User docs, replace en with the appropriate language code.
And what about the Moodle Docs filter we have running here? (https://github.com/moodlehq/moodle-filter_moodledocs)
It seems that needs a tweak.
Nice, but there are still a lot of potential interwiki links missing (or i don't know how to make them).
Just some exemples :
- how can you link from http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Moodle_2.0.3_release_notes to http://docs.moodle.org/20/en specific pages ?
- how can i make, from a french page, a link (that would appear in the "Other langages" bloc), as then "English one", but point to a page in dev wiki ? That would be useful for things like release notes (http://docs.moodle.org/19/fr/Notes_de_mise_%C3%A0_jour_de_Moodle_2.1.1).
Several months after my last post, no answer. But I've seen that links beetween MoodleDocs versions are made with external links, and not with interwiki links or filters, and i don't think that's the better way to do it (the simpler, but not the most usefull, for the reader)
Hope something will be done for better interwiki links in the (near ?) future...
Interwiki links documentation should also be improved, as i told in my other post in this thread
I also think it would be useful to be able to link to specific version of documentation, with interwiki links.
Sorry, my mistake for deleting those pages. I've just restored CSS. The problem affects pages which didn't have the 'Development' prefix in the title but have subsequently been moved to the developer docs wiki. If there are any more you can think of Frank, please shout. Fortunately it's very easy in Mediawiki to restore accidentally deleted pages.
Did you see the changes I made in 2.0 and 2.1? I definately think it is a good idea to put the link to the devDoc side in the see also. Especially for those things that are "advanced" topics for a site admin like Theme customization.
I noticed a link on the dev side that said :en:Moodle21DocPage . it jumped the the appropriate page in Moodle Docs 2.1. Will a :dev:devDocPage send something to the development docs?
Yes, you can use this type of links, to the development documentation
Séverin, as far as I know, it's only possible to link to the most recent version wiki in English using :en:Page name.
I notice in another post of yours in this thread that you'd rather use interwiki links between the release notes in the developer wiki and user documentation than full URLs. Why? The links to user documentation in the Moodle 2.2 release notes look fine to me.
I know that i can do links with URLs to differents MoodleDoc versions, but it doesn't appear in the "Other language" bloc
For me, it was a usefull feature, and i think it's bad not to be able to do that anymore.
I have to say that, as other people, i don't really like the fact of having several distinct docs.
As a french translator, i have to follow 5 wikis to know what changes !
And, when someone using french clicks on the "Documentation for this page" link in is Moodle, he goes on the French page (we only have 1 wiki, for all versions). Then, how can he follow a link to the good english translation, if he want's to have more information ???
