  • Hi there,

    I see that there's a way to condense one's talk page to free up space, make loading faster, etc.  Can anyone walk be through how to do it?

    Much appreciated!

    • One thing I do is create a user page as an archive and link to it on my talk page. To create a user page, start to make a new page as you normally would, but in the title include "User:Jdeschene/Archive_1". Everything after the / can be whatever you want it to be, but this will make a user page and not a normal article.

      I hate to sound dense, but can you give me more details on how to do this?  It's still not quite clear to me.  Thanks!

      No problem. So when you usually go to make an article for a story, the first window that pops up asks for the name of the page/story, before redirecting you to the editor where you paste the story.

      Instead of typing just "Archive" or whatever, to create a user page, you'd have to include "User:Jdeschene/" in front of whatever you're calling the page. So when you create a new article, title it something like "User:Jdeschene/Talk Page Archive 1".

      Then you can copy and paste your talk page onto that archive page, then copy the link to that archive and post it at the top of your newly cleaned talk page. Hope this clears things up.
