Caption2 does not show up. It does not even show up in the example infobox on the /doc page, where the page source specifies a caption for the ACC logo, but this isn't shown in the display version. (talk) 10:55, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

fixed. Frietjes (talk) 22:01, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

proposed upgrade to use {{infobox}}[edit]

I created a version in sandbox2 which uses template:infobox and makes a few more improvements.

  1. Removes the spurious colon from the Elevation label (this is the only label ending in a colon). see, for example, this testcase.
  2. Decouples the width of the columns in the runway/helipad section from the labels, which allows for less line wrapping. see, for example, this testcase
  3. fixes the bolding in the runway/helipad section. see, for example, this testcase
  4. adds an optional |ensign= to separate the ensign from the name so the name can be used in the location map, without the ensign showing up there as well.

any comments or suggestions? Frietjes (talk) 22:10, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

I agree with points 1 & 2. However disagree with point 3 since it looks like the merges the runways header and length and surface together with them all being in bold. Disagree with point 4, since the problem is that people are not adding in "|pushpin_label =" when changing from infobox military structure to infobox military installation.

Gavbadger, not sure I understand why you want H5 and H6 to be bold in RAF Brize Norton? or is it that you don't want the grey header to be bold? it would be easy to make the grey headers not bold, but making H5/H6 bold seems like an odd request. as far as the ensign is concerned, overloading the name parameter to add an image screws with the microformats, since you have lost data granularity. Frietjes (talk) 00:51, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
I don't like how the grey headers "Runways" & "Helipads" are in bold and I support the No. 4 ensign, can you also update the documentation for the infobox as well please. Gavbadger (talk) 15:59, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
Support - especially with regard to the importance of not polluting the name parameter with other material. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 13:05, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Edit Request 20/11/14[edit]

Can someone please centre all the infobox heading which run down the left hand side like how it used to be please? Gavbadger (talk) 18:34, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

Request template disabled, until consensus is reached. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 19:22, 20 November 2014 (UTC)
It is a uncontroversial simple edit which when it was originally changed to left align no consensus was needed for that. Gavbadger (talk) 19:28, 20 November 2014 (UTC)
Please read the documentation of {{Editprotected}}. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 20:44, 20 November 2014 (UTC)
when was it center aligned? using the default left alignment appears to be the standard. Frietjes (talk) 17:37, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
This edit removed the center align so it moved to the left [1] It is currently aligned in the centre in "Infobox military installation/sandbox" but the centre align was removed in "Infobox military installation/sandbox2". Gavbadger (talk) 19:06, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
Gavbadger, I just put that version in sandbox2 (verify). when I look at the testcases, I don't see any difference in alignment in the labels between the current version and sandbox2. if you are seeing a difference, provide a screenshot or OS/browser details? Frietjes (talk) 22:08, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
"Infobox military installation" is still aligned to the left, but both "Infobox military installation/sandbox" and "Infobox military installation/sandbox2" are now center align for the sub titles such as "Owner", "Controlled by" and "Open to the public" and the rest down the left hand side. Gavbadger (talk) 22:12, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
Gavbadger, which operating system and web browser? Frietjes (talk) 22:20, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
IE 11 and Windows 7. Gavbadger (talk) 22:22, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

The |labelstyle= parameter is currently duplicated, so the first instance is being ignored. – Jonesey95 (talk) 21:41, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

Working on this. Testing sandbox. -DePiep (talk) 21:49, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done [2] -DePiep (talk) 22:11, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
I am surprised to find and edit called "test" in a 5k template [3]. -DePiep (talk) 23:10, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
