Syntax Highlighting

But the extension allows to highlight for example SAS code and also puts colors in the syntax. You can easily use that with the tags <syntaxhighlight lang="sas"> ... </syntaxhighlight> . For more description see http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi

New Page List Only

The "NewPagesListTitlesOnly" (http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:NewPagesListTitlesOnly) extension also looks nice. We could use this to list the most recent pages on our main page.

Installed, doesn't seem to be working Phusewiki 14:25, 19 December 2011 (CST)

Contribution Scores

The "Contribution Scores" (http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Contribution_Scores) extension would also give nice info on our start page. Installed. Phusewiki 14:29, 19 December 2011 (CST)

Mathematical Formulae

For the statistics and pharmacokinetics stream it would be useful to have either the <math> </math> tag for TeX support or the alternative wiki Math template (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Math for details).

Papers in this stream have to describe the statistical problem which the software solves and often need to display formulae.

Discussion threads

the extension DiscussionThreading sets the discussion page up like threads. It automatically adds the signature to each discussion entry.

Breadcrumbs

Add some functionality so that you can navigate backwards from where you came. DanBoisvert 08:31, 28 March 2012 (CDT)
