Use of lead as template (for inclusion into summary style section of principal) Comment[edit]

@Lady Lotus: You reverted an "invisible" change to this article. Please explain your objection, and how you think it would be better handled. Reversions should always have an explanation either in the change summary, or in the talk page.

Some background:

The Joseph Gordon-Levitt article has a section for hitRECord. That section is done summary-style, with a {{Main}} reference referring to this article. Other than that, the section is empty. Usually, summary-style sections should include a brief description of the subject.

The lead section of the HitRecord article is a very good summary that would fulfill that need well. It could just be copied, but then it would have to be resynchronized regularly. Another way to handle it is to actually have the lead text transcluded (as if it was a template) into the JGL article. However, to do that, the HitRecord article needs some very small technical changes, invisible when reading the HitRecord article, to tell the server to include the lead section and nothing else. This is a normal use in Wikipedia, and can be found in other articles.

You removed the markup tags, without giving a reason, and did not update the JGL article, so it still transcluded this article into the section. Without the markup limiting the inclusion, it caused the entire HitRecord article to be included into JGL#hitRECord, which broke the JGL article. A day later, another editor "fixed" this by removing the transclusion, so the section is back to being empty. -Dovid (talk) 14:33, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Sorry! I'll be honest, I've never seen that used before so I had no idea what I did but now I do, carry on! :) Lady Lotus (talk) 14:50, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
