So, uh, what is this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Uttaddmb (talkcontribs) at 01:38, 11 August 2005 (UTC)

No idea what it's for, and the link in it leading to Flickr.com doesn't work for me either... Just displays "there are no images in this category". -- Jugalator 09:51, August 15, 2005 (UTC)
Ah ok, it's some kind of Wikipedia template to use for Flickr articles or something... Not intended for actual reading. The Flickr article put this template right into the Flickr article as a sole "see also" link without explanation what it is. I don't think it should even be there. It'll just serve to confuse Wikipedia readers. -- Jugalator 10:24, August 15, 2005 (UTC)
It may be confusing to readers, but is potentially useful to editors. The last thing we need is someone making another redundant template for links to flickr, so I suggest that it be left at the article so that everyone knows this exists. I doubt it will lead to any lasting confusion. --Chinasaur 02:16, 13 November 2005 (UTC)
In that case, it would be more useful to include it on the Wikipedia:Template messages/Links page instead of on the public article. - EurekaLott 02:31, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

Update to this template[edit]

I have now changed the template to have a parameter which is manually added rather than a {{PAGENAME}} variable. This caused problems with articles which have more than one word in the title. London worked fine but London Bridge did not.


{{Flickr-inline|name}} (where name is the article title), e.g. {{Flickr-inline|London}}.

Multi-word titles have no spaces, e.g. London Bridge would be



{{Flickr-inline|londonbridge}} - not case sensitive.


* {{Flickr-inline|London}} would show as:

multiple tags[edit]

how do we have a template for support of multiple flickr tags?

New change?[edit]

Could we change the template to be more like Commons:Template:Flickr? More information can be listed. Zzyzx11 (Talk) 00:13, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

I think the two templates have different purposes. This one is for use in the external links sections of articles, and the Commons template is for image tagging. This one should probably stay as is, but it might be good to create a second template here that mirrors the Commons template. - EurekaLott 02:14, 27 September 2006 (UTC)
I'm one of the developers of {{Externalimages}}. My idea is to merge the rather special flickr template with my broader approach and possibly create a similar template for videos. Wandalstouring (talk) 17:49, 5 February 2008 (UTC)
  • I agree with the first post. I have created a template {{Flickr-inline}} as an example of what we could do. First we redirect this template, then we have a bot change all the instances where {{Flickr}} is being used and after that is done, change the redirect back to a template that matches the one currently being used on the commons.

Against WP:ELNO?[edit]

Doesn't this template go against point #9 of WP:ELNO: "Links to any search results pages, such as links to individual website searches, search engines, search aggregators, or RSS feeds."? --McGeddon (talk) 13:18, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
