Category Intersection

This Extention has been modified by Yang, adding "mode = ricstyle" and changing the default order methode according to the page_title instead of timestamp !!! but you have to add "order = ascending" cuz the order default still is descending!

To index or list the common range (intersection) of article items among two or multiple categories.



category = Bejing Artists

category = Jazz Artists

mode = ricstyle

order = ascending


this will show all Beijing JAzz Artists in classic RiC style ("ricstyle": lined up with bars between items). You can add more categories for the determination. As for display "mode", you also can use "ordered" for numbered listing or "unordered" for bulleted listing. adding "notcategory = xxxx" will exclude items from a category.

<div style="width:30%; border:2px solid red; background-color: #000000; padding:7px; margin-left: 7px; margin-bottom: 7px; float:right; clear: right;position: relative;">

Lets say this would be a source verified sentence. Then I want to add a source. [1]

  1. me (2008-07-20). "test".
If necessary you can also just use the <ref>-tag without a template to do footnotes or style citations manually. -- Matsch 16:17, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Ref-Template exsample:

<ref>{{cite web | title=test | author=me | url= | date=2008-07-20 }}</ref>

dont forget to place the tag <references/> at the foot of the page to list out all ref entries.


These [B]BBCodes[/B] can be used:

   NOPARSE: Tells the parser not to convert any BBCodes between these tags. Useful for posting examples.
   FONT: Changes the font-face of the text.
   SIZE: Changes the font-size of the text. Does not allow for HTML +/- or integer only sizes. Must be valid CSS (i.e. px, pt, %, em, etc.)
   COLOR: Changes the foreground color of the text.
   BGCOLOR: Changes the background color of the text. Good for highlighting.
   B: Bold text.
   I: Italic text.
   U: Underline text.
   S: Strikeout text.
   SUP: Superscript.
   SUB: Subscript.
   HR: Insert a horizontal rule.
   LINE: Insert a horizontal line. Duplicates HR because my users hate the term Horizontal Rule.

Video Test

Normal version:

Smaller version:

Youtube Channel

EmbedVideo does not recognize the video service "youtubepl".

Supported Video Services so far:

  • dailymotion
  • funnyordie
  • googlevideo
  • sevenload
  • revver
  • youtube
  • youtubepl - for Playlists/Channels
  • tudou
  • myspace
  • youku
  • vimeo


go to a myspace page, find the myspace flash player and click on the link "open player in a new window" to open the popup player. try to get into the source code of the popup browser window and get the code after "" and embrace it like this (without spaces of course):

[ if ] d=CoDeBlAbLaBlA= [ /if ]

Note: if you dont want it to start auto play, just cut the code part "&u=LTE=&s=MA==" out! actually it seems that the whole code part "&n=aHR0cDovL211c2ljLm15c3BhY2UuY29tLw==&u=LTE=&s=MA==&t=dW5kZWZpbmVk&p=" is useless, if you simply want to embed the player somewhere.

Tip: better use firefox browser because you can get the source code of the popup window per mouse menu.

Here is the result:
