This page is for tracking ideas related to improving TransitWiki's technical infrastructure: features and services. For content ideas, see Content Ideas.


  1. Make TransitWiki namespace searchable. see MediaWiki manual 20:06, 18 October 2016 (MDT)
  2. Create system of templates for highlighting, flagging, and otherwise marking pages. For example: templates would be useful to identify in-progress pages, out-of-date content, content that violates TransitWiki policies, or asking specific questions. Appropedia provides an excellent example of a template system in use. I have attempted to begin and use a template system on TransitWiki (Category:Templates). --Aaronantrim (talk) 00:07, 15 December 2015 (MST)
  3. Change URL structure for TransitWiki articles so the URLs are shorter and more readable. e.g. instead of 13:18, 23 January 2016 (MST)
  4. Add section for interwiki links. e.g. there are several transportation wikis. here is one: Aaronantrim (talk) 20:06, 18 October 2016 (MDT)
  5. Create TransitWiki tasks category, similar to Appropedia tasks Aaronantrim (talk) 10:10, 19 October 2016 (MDT)
  6. Add the ImageMap extension that would allow linking of areas of the Transit Stack image to relevant pages


  1. Enable the User email feature (e.g. Special:EmailUser/Bertrand ) --Aaronantrim (talk) 08:50, 3 May 2016 (MDT) completed by Juan Matute, TransitWiki Manager (talk) 15:31, 21 October 2016 (MDT)
  2. Add contribution credits feature on pages Aaronantrim (talk) 10:10, 19 October 2016 (MDT) partially completed by Juan Matute, TransitWiki Manager (talk) 15:31, 21 October 2016 (MDT)
  3. I added a stub Guide for Contributors page that needs more work. A primary purpose was to add guidelines for vendors. --Aaronantrim (talk) 18:41, 13 November 2016 (MST)
  4. Install Parser Functions Extension to allow for conditional parser functions that offer adaptable templates for infoboxes. [[User:Leeor|Leeor] 19:18, 11 January 2017 (PST) completed by Juan Matute, TransitWiki Manager (talk) 14:25, 12 January 2017 (MST)
  5. Consider adding functionality for Semantic MediaWiki Aaronantrim (talk) 10:10, 19 October 2016 (MDT)
