Hey there, I came to a point on this wiki where a category intersection search is required to show the overlap in weapon type (category A), effective range (category B) and eventually faction (category C).

I did some searching and found an extension called Help:DynamicPageList, which needs to be unlocked by wikia staff. Unfortunately the pages including DPL are static and aren't suited for custom searches.

On the other hand there's a special page called CategoryIntersection on lyrics wiki which pleases me more. But it's neither enabled by default nor listed as extension enabled on request. I know wonder how I can obtain it on the battlefield heroes wiki.

Of course I'm open for better solutions in case there are. BFH-Wiki 08:32, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

You would have to contact Wikia staff and ask them if you can get that extension enabled.
But just to be sure: You do realize that this is just an API extension, right? That page on the lyrics wiki is not the output of that extension. The extension has no frontend of any sort. --  pecoes  21:09, March 23, 2012 (UTC)

Well, it would be good to know if lyrics wiki is getting special treatment or if Special:CategoryIntersection can be enabled on any Wikia wiki by admin request. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 23 Mar 2012 2:06 PM Pacific
Exactly what Fandyllic wrote. I prefer to have a custom search instead of creating ~30 dpl tags. That's why I'm curious about the Special:CategoryIntersection. I just posted on the lyrics admin talk, he seems to create custom special pages on mass-production. As soon I get an answer I'll post it here.
And about the broken link: I forgot the w:c:help thingy :) BFH-Wiki 11:02, March 24, 2012 (UTC)
Is it working now? --  pecoes  18:44, March 27, 2012 (UTC) 
Not sure if you've seen it, but the latest blog reveals all.    ǝsʞpɐןǝ  (message wall)  18:53, 27/03/2012
The latest blog is why I'm asking. --  pecoes  19:03, March 27, 2012 (UTC) 
Sean Colombo has been so friendly to enable it on my wiki along adding it to the general feature request ;) BFH-Wiki 20:43, March 27, 2012 (UTC)
