Organise by date?

Might it be better to have these organised by date? - Francis Tyers 06:14, 8 February 2007 (EST)

Yes, that seems reasonable. I suppose one might want to sort them (1) by conference date, (2) by paper submission date, or (3) alphabetically. I wonder if there's an easy way to let the reader choose the sorting order? --Pdturney 08:44, 8 February 2007 (EST)
We could have either three sections on this page, or three articles Workshops in 2007 by date, Workshops in 2007 by name etc. I'd probably err on the side of sections, although it would be a nuisance to maintain. I wonder if there is a way to do it with templates. - Francis Tyers 14:44, 8 February 2007 (EST)
No, we certainly don't want to maintain three copies of every event. I was hoping for a solution that makes the computer do the work, not the humans. I think MediaWiki can integrate Javascript.--Pdturney 15:56, 8 February 2007 (EST)
Here we go: sortable tables are available in MediaWiki 1.9.0, but 1.9.0 is not a stable release. We're currently using MediaWiki 1.8.2. --Pdturney 19:21, 9 February 2007 (EST)
Perhaps we should organize the workshops as a table, such that we can easily make the table sortable, when sortable tables become a stable feature. --Pdturney 14:00, 10 February 2007 (EST)

This would seem like a good idea. - Francis Tyers 07:51, 12 February 2007 (EST)
Ok, I made them into a table. - Francis Tyers 10:19, 12 February 2007 (EST)
