There has to be a better way of doing this, but I just can't figure it out.

  • The TabView extension can only load full pages, using ?action=render. It is not possible to load sections, or to pass parameters with TabView.
  • There is a UrlGetParameters extension, but tabview doesn't work with parameters, so it is not possible for a page loaded by TabView to glean any information from the page which is loading it. It is also not possible to load different revisions of the same page due to the same reason.
  • The Tabber extension loads all tabs at once, so is a presentational extension only and won't help defer loading, which is the reason this page is split in the first place.

Wikia is supposedly working on a better tab extension, but there has been no word about it for some time. At this point I'm wondering if I should just write my own, because it IS possible to use the wikia API to load sections of pages, or to call a template with specific parameters, both of which would solve the problem, and allow this page to be done far more elegantly. -452 (talk) 22:45, February 19, 2014 (UTC)
