Image edit request on 16 April 2014[edit]

Please replace [File:Royal Standard of the Kingdom of France.svg]‎ in the Kingdom of France Portal to [File:Royal Standard of the King of France.svg‎]. The old file depicts is a historically inaccurate depiction of the flag. Sodacan (talk) 02:04, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

How much faster[edit]

Is the lua nested switch than the previous version? All the best, Rich Farmbrough, 21:47, 17 April 2014 (UTC).

Please replace the line

   ["india"] = "Flag of India.svg",


   ["india"] = "Flag of India.svg{{!}}border",

if this method of adding a border to a flag image without one works in Modules/Lua/etc. If not, please advise how; I didn't spot anything via here. Sardanaphalus (talk) 07:09, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done The correct syntax is "|border" - there are some other examples scattered through Module:Portal/images/i. -- John of Reading (talk) 08:00, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Image edit request on 22 April 2014[edit]

Please replace File:Pavillon LouisXIV.svg‎ in the New France Portal to File:Royal Standard of King Louis XIV.svg. The old file depicts is a historically incorrect depiction of the flag. Sodacan (talk) 05:44, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Also, Sodacan, you can escape file links by using the colon trick if you need to. I've done so in your request above. Best — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 07:40, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! and I will use the colon trick from now on, Sodacan (talk) 08:44, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Image edit discussion/request for April 23 2014[edit]


which is better for Portal:Anime and manga — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cronos Dage (talkcontribs) 22:23, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

@Cronos Dage: what are the filenames of the two portal images you have used in that picture? — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 04:13, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
@Mr. Stradivarius: File:Wikipe-tan_face.svg / File:Anime_eye.svg --Cronos Dage (talk) 21:31, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
@Cronos Dage: I recommend you ask this question at WikiProject Anime and manga, and make sure you include the filenames. They will probably be more interested in that discussion than editors here. Most editors that watch this talk page are technical types, and don't have a particular interest in the anime/manga subject area. Also, you need to update the image licence page to add the filenames of the images you used to make it, otherwise technically it is a copyright violation. The CC-BY-SA licence requires that you provide attribution for the images you used, but at the moment the file you uploaded does not provide attribution. Linking to the filename is standard practice for providing attribution on Wikipedia. Best — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 05:03, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
(Also, you can stop the files from displaying in wikilinks by adding a colon in front of the filename, like this: File:Wikipe-tan face.svg and File:Anime eye.svg.) — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 05:05, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
Yup, I know. All was intentional with no intent to change it --Cronos Dage (talk) 23:57, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 29 April 2014[edit]

I would like to have the old jpg earth flag File:Earth flag PD.jpg replaced as the [[Portal:Ecology}Ecology portal]] image with the new File:Earth Day Flag.png, which was made in the illustration graphics lab to replace the old jpg with a superior format.

Limiting vertical height[edit]

I didn't see an easy method in the documentation for limiting the vertical height of a portal box. I'm thinking of {{Portal|Xbox}}, which messes up the vertical height in the example at {{WPVG}}. czar  18:27, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

I propose adding a param to limit the height of the portal image as described in Template_talk:WPBannerMeta#Task_force_portals_causing_trouble. This would allow users of the {{WPBannerMeta}} template to uniformly set the height of their portals. Thoughts or objections? czar  17:17, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Request about "Portal:Extinct and endangered species"[edit]

Could someone do what is necessary so that the link to "Portal:Extinct and endangered species" show the same image as the link to "Portal:Extinction"? Thank you in advance! Coreyemotela (talk) 14:35, 1 June 2014 (UTC).

@Technical 13: All you needed to do was look at the contribs of Meclee (talk · contribs) to see what they'd been doing immediately before raising this edit request; it's at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Globalization#New Logo, so Yes check.svg Done --Redrose64 (talk) 19:33, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Red... I was being lazy and the default sig doesn't have a contribs link. So, I figured that they could just link the discussion and save me some time having to hunt it down. — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 20:07, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
@Technical 13: Preferences → Gadgets → "Navigation popups, article previews and editing functions popup when hovering over links" is your friend. Enable that, hover over the link to a User or User talk: page, and you get a contribs link and more. It doesn't coexist with Hovercards, apparently. --Redrose64 (talk) 20:15, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

Remove image for Portal:Arab-Israeli conflict[edit]

Please could the image for the Arab-Israeli conflict be removed. A post requesting comment at Portal talk:Arab–Israeli conflict has been unanswered for 10 days. The portal is "inactive" insofar as there have been no meaningful edits for more than three years.

This request is on the back of discussion at Talk:Arab–Israeli conflict where it was decided to remove the same image from the main article. The image was removed from the main article three months ago [1] and such removal has not been disputed. Oncenawhile (talk) 22:22, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Edit protected request for Portal "Commonwealth Games"[edit]

On the following line in Module:Portal/images/c could you please change the image to File:The Hydro - May 2012.JPG.

The image "The Bar.png" was deleted from Commons on 1 April 2014 by commons:User:Jdforrester.

2 portals have missing images[edit]

Hi, I noticed some portals have missing/deleted images

Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 12:57, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. I wonder if the module could be improved so that it checks whether images exist instead of producing a redlink like 32x28px and uses the default image instead. (Mr. Stradivarius?) — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 13:27, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
@MSGJ: It should be possible. {{asbox}} detects duff images and puts the stub template into Category:Stub message templates needing attention. It still redlinks the image though. --Redrose64 (talk) 16:10, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Yep, that's possible and I can't see it causing any problems. I'll put it on my to-do list. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 16:18, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
If I recall correctly, we avoided using ifexist (regarded as an expensive function) on every call of asbox to improve performance. The existence check only happens on the template page. Don't know if we need to worry about this though. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 16:25, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Image edit request on 10 July 2014[edit]

File:Tom Sawyer 1876 frontispiece.jpg as the image for the Children's literature portal (see [2]). Sardanaphalus (talk) 18:59, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

This must be something caused by the code inside {{Portal category}}, as the image displays correctly when using {{portal|Children's literature}}. -- John of Reading (talk) 20:21, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
(More) Seems to be fixed after this edit to {{Portal category}}. -- John of Reading (talk) 20:42, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
@Sardanaphalus: I'm puzzled by your use of {{$1|$2|answered=no}} at the start of this thread. Did you use a script? If so, perhaps it's buggy? --Redrose64 (talk) 23:15, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
It looks like the problem was a bad link on Module:Portal/images/doc, which I've now fixed. Jackmcbarn (talk) 23:40, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Yes, it was generated when I used the "make a protected edit request..." link offered in Template:Portal/doc#Image. As of this message, the {{edit template-protected}} that has now appeared above has |answered=no, but, as John of Reading's nifty {{Portal category}} edit seems to've made the difference, should this now be |answered=yes ...?
