very cool! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:54, 18 September 2008 (EDT)

  • Awesome. I remember a while ago I had to use Google's webpage converter through Gmail, but I've been using Opera Mini, and the normal page loads fine. But very cool.--Bob (talk) 18:31, 18 September 2008 (EDT)
    • It's rather nice. Very handy if you are browsing with a lynx viewer as well.--MiamiVolts (talk) 21:56, 18 September 2008 (EDT)
      • It's something I wanted to see for a long time back when I had my Blackberry since the site didn't look too hot on it, but with my iPhone the regular site looks perfect so I don't personally need it anymore. I figured it would be nice for people who are out and wanted to look something up quickly to have a method to do it. I was surprised MediaWiki hadn't put in any WAP support earlier, but it looks like the code I added here will be integrated with MediaWiki in an future release. (Admin 22:26, 18 September 2008 (EDT))
        • Wait--I don't understand the ins and outs of how the coding works, but are you saying that MediaWiki is going to use the code that you added? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:59, 19 September 2008 (EDT)
          • The code was written by the people at HAWHAW presumably for their website which provides WAP access to Wikipedia. Since their code is open source it looks like Wikipedia is incorporating it right into the MediaWiki project itself. The code I pulled was from MediaWiki's source code repository which has a lot of hard coded references to Wikipedia in it (since it looks like their primary goal was to get it running on Wikipedia and then to extend it). So I took a copy of the same code and modified it for Heroes Wiki. I think in time they'll take the code, make it more generic, and then distribute it along with MediaWiki releases to provide every MediaWiki installation with a convenient WAP view.
