I've noticed some of the manuals that are split up into several pages have tables at the bottom with navigation links to the previous/next pages. I reckon this would be better served with Mediawiki templates. Then if you want you can change the style at a later date and everything will remain consistent. I made three templates just for this, Prev, Next and Prevnext if anyone wants to look. What do you think?

I'm definitely interested in discussing your ideas. We are in the process of updating the mediawiki engine (should be complete very soon as testing is advanced), and have several improvements in mind. Can you join us on IRC? - #kde-www - it makes sense to be planning now, so that we can get improvements out there in the new version.

Thinking a bit more about the Prev/Next templates, traditionally there was a centre entry, for Contents. What do you think about adding that? You could call it Manual Home, if that seems more appropriate.

I didn't notice before that you have parserfunctions installed on this wiki. I've updated the second template to be an all-in-one navigation thingummy now. Still works the same way as described above, though.

That's really getting somewhere :-) Does {{PAGENAME}}/Manual work? I've tried it on http://userbase.kde.org/Template:Prevnext2

Appears to work just fine. Almost all of the arguments are completely optional, now. I hope the documentation makes enough sense. Glad you like it. It should probably be renamed if anyone is to use it, though. And the three original templates I made can probably be deleted now. Drop me a message if you want any more.
