Request: Add multi-line indentation


A feature of modern text editors that I use for markdown editing is the ability to select multiple lines of text and press tab (or ⇧ shift + tab) to add (or remove) a layer of indentation at the beginning of each line selected.

Because the Wiki's Markdown is not rendered using the same layout engine that is available in text editors like Visual Studio Code, it's not possible to conveniently edit Wiki Markdown outside of the in-browser editor. This means that it is more important that the in-browser page editor implement as many of the commonly used convenience features of modern text editors as possible.

Request: Add an optional title to <example> tags


In situations where a page needs to have multiple examples, the <example> tag's current title being simply "Example" is unhelpful for differentiating which example it is.

To demonstrate what I mean:

<example title="Multi-Segment" >

Request: Ability to change rust main categories.


I would like to re-organize the main category tabs to better suit the expanding wiki. For example: Instead of having "The World" in the "Playing" category I would rather have it be its own main category. Let me know if I can't get the permission and instead have to submit the requested changes.

Request: Expose Rust's item icons to the page editor


I couldn't figure out how to "properly" update the icon for the Landmine (now Handmade Landmine) which in-game recently received a new model and icon as well as a slight name / desc. change. Apparently Rust's item icons do have their own style subclass defined but it isn't exposed in or handled by the wiki's markdown editor at all, so I can neither change the img src to the new icon, nor can I manually replace it by removing it and uploading / embedding the new image. - 0nyx 4/9/2022

Request: s&box Categories


just a couple i think make sense

  • Animgraph Category - There is alot to know about this stuff with no place to put it
  • Extra Tools - for things like the inspector, postprocessing editor and such, so we have a place to put them

Request: Moderation


Get some trusted volunteers as mods for the wiki so they can get rid of pages like "HowToGetAKey" quickly and lock pages that are too heated. Ban obvious trolls like roblox34.

Request: Create a dedicated requests / bugs system


A dedicated requests / bugs system (similar to that on github) would allow the raiser of the issue to be notified when it has been fixed, and will allow you at Facepunch to delegate people to deal with the raised issue and communicate with the original poster, as well as highlight any existing posts that have been created to stop people from posting the same issue over-and-over. Also, it will stop keyboard warriors from getting the markup wrong and messing it up.

Request: Add back in TAB to search


Upon moving forums, the press Tab to search in the chrome browser hasn't been implemented.

Bug: <appendedenums> wasn't implemented


<appendedenums> exists on this page but still confuses new devs because enums aren't actually appended.

Request: Make realm icons have a tooltip with the realm it represent and the link to the realms page


Realms page. New devs don't know what these icons near each function are because wiki doesn't give hints.

Request: Make ability to create PageList depending on the content of the page


Some pages should be mentioned on specific page but they currently you can't create a list of all pages depending on the content of the page.

Request: Make if search has one result you can go to this page by hitting enter


If you search for a page and you typed exactly its name you still have to move your mouse and click the page to open it. Make it open by hitting enter.

Request: Make Random page button


Random page is useful to test your knowledge or find new stuff. Suggested icons: mdi-dice-5-outline or mdi-dice-multiple-outline.

Bug: <code> misses lots of Lua syntax


<code> tag doesn't highlight ..., not, or, [, ], {, }, ||, &&, *, /, ^, %, # and numbers.

Bug: Navigating back (browser back) to editor will not update the syntax highlighting


Essentially title. The text area will contain the saved text changes, but the syntax highlighter will contain the page's unedited text instead.

Tested on Chrome

Request: Allow us to make categories


Either permit us to make Categories manually or upgrade the wiki so that we can put one page under multiple cateogires, so we can get pages like Predicted Hooks back.

Request: Implement a basic template page for Rust Wiki.


With Rust having a lot of items and various craftable things within the game, there is a lot of information to be displayed in tables etc. However, there is no set standard for displaying this information on the Rust Wiki and I have seen it done several different ways. I think it would be beneficial to include an unlisted page with a template for contributors to follow.

Bug and or Request: I can't edit my profile here, because character " - " is disallowed in display names :(


On this page the page was changed, and it doesn't allow - in display names anymore. And I wanna keep the - it is literally in my current display name and harmless. But because of that I can't update my avatar anymore and that makes me sad. It has been turned into something pixelated, this feels like my profile picture was personally attacked.

Can this please get fixed? :)

Bug: Linking to another wiki doesn't change the page's styling or sidebar


Clicking a link that references another wiki (eg: you're in wiki help, link references the rust wiki) will open the page but under the current wiki site you are on, so the sidebar won't update and the styling of the page that was opened will be the styling of the wiki you were on before.

Examples of this can be seen here: About This Wiki page Bug report on underscores in page titles

Web browser: Chrome Latest

Bug: Can't upload files on Firefox


Dragging files onto the page to try and upload them will result in a error icon on Firefox. Works perfectly fine with chromium browsers (tested on edge)

Example: (ignore awful quality)

Browser: Latest version of Firefox Developer Edition

OS: Windows 10 64-Bit


NOTE: It works on Ubuntu just fine with Firefox. However, this bug still persists on Windows 10.

Request: Adding ability to redirect pages to different pages.


I can edit the page itself and I modify the title of the page, but this does not update the URL.

I assume this does not update the URL by design. However, in order to rename pages like this, the ability for redirects would need to be added. For example, I think should redirect to Of course, the power to redirect or rename pages is fairly impactful, but necessary to maintain an organized wiki.

Bug: Searching breaks if the text contains `#`


When you put # # in the search and press enter, it causes an error to appear and anything after a # seems to be ignored in the search

Bug: return names are not extra bold like unlike arguments.


This page is an example, where you can see that the return name is not extra bold like arguments
