Is it possible to have the portal template nested in this template in additon to the shortcut template? --Gavin Collins 13:12, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Done. Sorry for the delay; I didn't notice the request until just now. Only took me about 5 min. — SMcCandlish [talk] [cont] ‹(-¿-)› 13:34, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Portal images[edit]

Not sure if it is a substitution thing, but is it possible to pass an unnamed image parameter to the {{portal}} template from this one? Right now, it just uses the generic Image:Portal.svg. I tried using {{!}} but that didn't help. Examples:

This one has the generic image.
This one was an attempt at passing the image name into the portal= parameter of {{project}}
{{Project|WP:ALBUM|WP:ALBUMS|portal=Music{{!}}Musical notes.svg}}
{{Project|WP:ALBUM|WP:ALBUMS|portal=Music{{!}}Musical notes.svg}}

Thanks. — MrDolomite • Talk 15:20, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Project type and process vs topic wording[edit]

I added some logic (with the help of User:Fetchcomms) so that project-type and topic or process can be specified to make the wording more specific. I was trying to have it only require a non-null topic or process variable without requiring project-type to be specified (if topic != null then topic based wording elseif process != null then process based wording else default wording). If anyone can simplify please give it a shot. -Optigan13 (talk) 00:29, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

I've also added taskforce parameter to specify taskforce vs full project -Optigan13 (talk) 01:35, 7 December 2009 (UTC)



I've greatly reduced the number of words used in this template. Because the template generally lives at the top of a WikiProject page, it has the potential to distract the reader from finding the primary thing they're seeking (i.e., information about this specific topic, not about WikiProjects in general). So I think a really simple explanation is sufficient, especially considering that a full explanation is only a click away. -Pete (talk) 16:42, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

I have also reduced the size of the image from 60px to 45px. This makes the box smaller and makes it less distracting which you suggested you were trying to do. Mr.Kennedy1 talk guestbook 21:13, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
