I just had this same idea the past week. I was thinking of a solution like take the django aggregator sites and scan its links for something like rel="docs:/en/dev/topics/signals/#topics-signals" which means we should link this entry from the signals page.

Of course this is a very rough idea, but this is what I've had.

As I'm not at DjangoCon, is there anything more specific about the idea?

Reposted from #8988 which was closed as a dupe, it was about cleaning up the wiki...

Yea, this was talked about at djangocon. I think this would be really useful. I also feel it is a consequence of the official documentation being so good. A lot of people also post stuff that could be on the wiki in their personal blogs (to get credit and comments etc.) which I think makes sense.

So it might make more sense to maybe somehow include the functionality in #8945 along with this, or instead of this, or some hybrid. Perhaps Having the official docs link to an 'unofficial' page on the topic that would be in the wiki or something like that...
(and the wiki would then also link to outside blogs and other stuff, as well as perhaps have it's own content)

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is an ongoing thing so it's hard to know at what point its fixed -- when we have one external link? ten? fifteen? Since it's an obvious improvement that everyone knows about let's close this down.
