Discussion[edit]

Move[edit]

I propose a move to {{cite comic strip}} - to keep with the naming convention on citation list - I will clean up the redirects. Trödel 22:54, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

I plan on making the move after 6 June if there are no objections Trödel 22:24, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
What happened? Is there any reason not to do this move?? ---- CharlesGillingham (talk) 12:30, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
I can't think of any. I'll try and do it during the week, I have a bot account that should be able to handle the redirects. Hiding T 17:36, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Parameter names?[edit]

I tried to use this template at Lost (TV series), but found that when I used the parameters listed above, it didn't work. I had to change "strip" and "syndicate" to "title" and "publisher" in order to get the template to display properly (see here). I don't know enough about template syntax to understand why this is, or to make the necessary corrections to the blank version above, but I'm mentioning it here so someone more knowledgeable can. —Josiah Rowe (talkcontribs) 06:45, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

Require Strip Title[edit]

Require a new parameter: Strip Title, or whatever the actual name is. Most of the webcomics name their strips for every publication. (e.g. penny arcade), right now there is no way of including this. --Voidvector 07:36, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Okay, leave it with me I'll try and get to it next. What I want to do ultimately is merge this with the other two comics related templates and create one cite comic template. Hiding Talk 16:39, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Anchor[edit]

{{Comic strip reference/sandbox}} has been updated to provide an anchor for use with Shortened footnotes or Parenthetical referencing. ---— Gadget850 (Ed) talk 09:27, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

URGENT: Correct usage examples[edit]

Hi, all the usage examples are wrong, as they use "comic book reference" (a template which no longer exists and simply redirects to "cite comic") instead of "comic strip reference". When I tried to use one of the usage examples (with parameters correctly filled in), it didn't work properly, unsurprisingly. Kidburla (talk) 15:24, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
