About This Gadget[edit | edit source]

This gadget displays information about the target page. It can determine:

  1. Whether the page exists or not
  2. Whether the page is a redirect, and if so, to where

It counts:

  1. The number of characters in the page
  2. the number of "words" in the page (words are non-space chunks of text, such as numbers or symbols)
  3. The number of templates used
  4. The number of categories used (but not categories used through template inclusion)
  5. The number of links used

It lists:

  1. Templates used in the page
  2. Categories used in the page (but not transcluded)
  3. Links on the page

To Do:[edit | edit source]

  1. Handle nested templates correctly (currently does not)
  2. Determine if the page has been tagged with specific templates (delete, vfd, merge, query, etc)
  3. sort links and remove duplicates (sort of works)
  4. Make sure that categories arent counted as links (they are sometimes)
