Manage topics

Filter topics

 
Location of the filtering menu on a Chinese wiki.

On top of a Board is an option to filter topics.

  • "Newest topics" will show you topics stored by when they have been created.
  • "Recently active topics" will show you topics as they have been updated, most recent first. Resolve a topic updates it.

Edit a topic/a message

 
The three-dots menu allows you to access many options: edit the topic title, the summary, resolve... (here in French).

Editing, like many other actions is accessible through the three-dots menu.

Autoconfirmed users can edit any message, to fix problems or look at the wikitext.

When a message is edited, a new entry is added to the History page. The username of the last editor who changes the message is displayed below the message itself, on the timestamp. To see the differences between the edits, click on the timestamp.

When you edit a message, all basic editing applies.

The title itself can also be edited. In the ... menu next to the topic's title, select "Edit title".

Note: The topic title only allows wikitext markup allowed by the edit summary.[1]=== Summarize a topic ===

Summarizing a topic will help people to understand what happened in the Topic. It can be done anytime: during the conversation to summarize what happened, or at the end after a decision is made. Summarizing the topic will be suggested when you mark a topic as resolved.

You can put links or templates in the Summary (like {{see also}} or {{tracked}}). All basic editing applies.

Logged-in users can summarize a Topic.

Resolve a topic

Resolving a topic hides all answers for that topic, and a check mark is added to the Topic title. Summarizing the topic will be suggested when you mark a topic as resolved. You can expand a resolved Topic by clicking on the Title or on the Summary. You can re-open a Topic anytime, by clicking on the Topic's menu (three dots icon). You need to reopen a topic to do any administrative actions (hide, delete, suppress).

A resolved topic is identified by a grey font color on the table of contents.

Logged-in users can resolve a topic.


Customization

If you want to only have a start-a-new-topic page, with nothing else around, use action=new-topic.
