Links to BRENDA[edit]

{{editprotected}} Perhaps it would be a good idea not only to provide links to "expasy" but also to the BRENDA-Database. BRENDA contains manually curated information to all known enzymes. The link would be in the form:
BRENDA is already linked from many articles that holds information on enzymes and is the recommended link for a list of literature on certain enzymes.

Please attempt to build consensus before requesting this edit. Perhaps you could ask the folks over at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Molecular and Cellular Biology for their input and once you have consensus feel free to request the edit again. Oren0 (talk) 08:38, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Edit request on 18 December 2011[edit]

I have created the Turkish version of this template, and would be glad if you can add the Turkish page link [[tr:Şablon:EC numarası]]. Alternatively, it would be good to add a documentation page to show usage of it. (I have already prepared the one below, if you think it is suitable you can use this one) (need to correct Category and language links)

This template gives external link to the database http://enzyme.expasy.org for EC numbers.


To use this template in a page, copy-paste the expression below, replacing EC with EC number (without letters).

{{EC numarası|EC}}


The below code is used for this link EC

{{EC number|}}

Added docs subpage. -- œ 14:58, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

Edit request on 30 December 2012[edit]

The code could be changed as below: (Omitting stars)

<*noinclude><*nowiki>{{EC number|X.X.X.X}}<*/nowiki><*/noinclude>
<*includeonly>[[Enzyme Commission number|EC]] [http://enzyme.expasy.org/EC/{{{1}}} {{{1}}}]<*/includeonly>

So that instead of seeing EC {{{1}}} at the beginning of the page we can see the usage as: {{EC number|X.X.X.X}}

Not done: Usually we put examples of usage on the documentation subpage, so having it at the top of the template page where most people are used to seeing the template's output might be quite confusing. If we were to start doing things in the way that you suggest it would have implications for all the other templates on Wikipedia, and consequently would require a well-advertised community-wide discussion in order for it to gain consensus. In the absence of such a consensus we should probably just do it the way it is usually done. Let me know if you have any questions about this, though.

Dear Mr. Stradivarius, thank you very much for your attention. Indeed, my main point was not inserting an example but rather removing the EC {{{1}}} expression at the top since I thought it gave an incorrect output and a broken link; but later I found out that it is not there to give a correct link but rather show how the template will be seen on the page it is added.
