When clicking on the sister project image[edit]

{{editprotected}}

Please make it so when clicking on the sister project image, you are directed to the corresponding link, not the sister's mainpage. I'm not sure but I think something like this could be added link=commons:Special:Search/{{PAGENAME}}|Commons. Thanks -- penubag  (talk) 09:07, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done - Perhaps try experimenting with the coding in a sandbox in a subpage of your userspace and resubmit when you know more specifically what is needed to change? Cirt (talk) 14:33, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Alt text[edit]

“Sister project” is not appropriate alt text for the image.

If the template will always have a text link to the same page and the logo link duplicates it, then empty alt="" is appropriate. The logo is only a visual cue duplicating the text link, so there is no point in having redundant text.

If the template is not guaranteed to have the text link, then when we change the logo for sighted readers, we should also change the alt text for those relying on text-only browsers or assistive technology: “Wikimedia Commons”, “Wikimedia Community”, “Wikibooks”, etc. Michael Z. 2008-12-15 00:47 z

{{editprotected}}

I just now ran into the problem myself, and agree with Michael Z.'s analysis. I implemented the requested change in the sandbox with this edit, and tested the change with the test cases. Can you please install the change into the template? Thanks. Eubulides (talk) 09:48, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

update[edit]

_{{editprotected}} Please update with the sandbox. This change would make it so when clicking on the sister project logo, instead of going to the main page, it would direct you to the page the template's pointing to. Thank you.

Wiktionary[edit]

{{editprotected}} The line

  |wiktionary|wkt|wdy|d   = d

should be changed to

  |wiktionary|wkt|wdy|d   = wikt

d is not a correct prefix. —Ms2ger (talk) 14:20, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Done. --- RockMFR 18:21, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Sister projects - link order problem[edit]

I've left some comments and questions at Wikipedia talk:Wikimedia sister projects#Wikipedia:Template messages/Sister projects - link order problem that concern this, and related templates. Please reply there, if you have any feedback. Thanks. -- Quiddity (talk) 22:32, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Problem when embedded in a bullet list[edit]

{{editprotected}}

(posting here at the suggestion of msgj (talk · contribs) after first mentioning it at Template talk:Wikinews)

A dependent template ({{wikinews}}) was used in this version of the Willamette Week article between two items in a bullet list, and (this is key) without a line break between the template and the end of the first bullet item. That use produced an unintended result, i.e. the box around the item was missing and the text within the box was not floated along the right side. After some experimentation it was easy to work around this problem, but it would be better if either the {{sister}} template were fixed to not exhibit this layout behavior (sorry, I can't be more specific) or if this limitation could be documented at Template:Sister/doc. This issue may be years old, since it's very similar to one mentioned here in 2006 on the talk page for Wikinews, where the following example was cited:

The following text

* {{wikinews|Look at me! Out of my box!}}

produces this output:

Wikinews has related news: Look at me! Out of my box!

Thanks in advance. 68.167.253.238 (talk) 00:19, 3 March 2009 (UTC).

That is a known bug in the MediaWiki software. Most message boxes have the same problem, since anything built with a table has this problem. And we don't have a fix for it other than not putting the message boxes in dotted lists. Sorry.
Oh, and you should not use the {{editprotected}} like you did. It is only for calling in an admin to edit a page when you do have the exact code to add.
--David Göthberg (talk) 03:44, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
Could this be documented? Truth be told, I actually think this is quite a neat side-effect... Chris Cunningham (not at work) - talk 10:00, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

It looks slightly better if you use a colon.

: {{wikinews|Look at me! Out of my box!}}

Wikipedia[edit]

"wikipedia" should be an allowed value for |project=. See for example {{InterWiki}}. —Ms2ger (talk) 11:27, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done I agree. Happymelon 12:47, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
The way you added it correctly caused a Wikipedia logo, but caused a search link to the English Wikipedia. But templates like {{InterWiki}} are meant to link to other language editions. So while I was adding some other fixes, I also added the "lang" parameter. Now we can feed this:
{{sister
| project = wikipedia
| lang = de
| text = German Wikipedia has more media on "something".
}}
Which renders the box you see to the right. Its image link goes to a search on the German Wikipedia.
Of course, I am not so sure those boxes should have a search for the current page name. I find the whole thing with the image having a search link pretty strange. I think those logos should probably not be linked at all.
--David Göthberg (talk) 07:06, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
I agree with David for a number of reasons, and have removed said link. Rich Farmbrough, 17:12, 16 July 2010 (UTC).

[edit]

{{editprotected}} Please change "Wikipedia-logo-en.png" to "Wikipedia-logo.png" to reflect the current logo. Thank you. --Yair rand (talk) 13:49, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

The current en logo on my main page comes from file:Wikipedia-logo-v2-en.png not from file:Wikipedia-logo.png  Ronhjones  (Talk) 21:06, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Addition of Wikivoyage and Wikidata[edit]

Please add the WMF's two newest projects, Wikivoyage and Wikidata. I have corrected the template on Template:Sister/sandbox and tested all 5 instances on Template:Sister/testcases. The following 2 lines must be added: | wikidata|data = Wikidata-logo.svg | wikivoyage|voyage|voy = Wikivoyage favicon.svg

Although not transcluded on any templates at the current time, there are plans to use them soon (ie, for Template:Wikivoyage). Thanks in advance. JamesA >talk 12:05, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

I don't think the sandbox was synchronised before you made your changes. Would you take a look because I don't want to undo other changes. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 21:13, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
Sorry for the confusion. You were right, there were some differences, but I've synchronised the template and readded the links, so it should be fine now. Thanks. JamesA >talk 01:23, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 09:42, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

Remove watermark from Wikiquote[edit]

Only the Wikiquote logo has its watermark included. There's no watermark in other sister projects logos, so please replace it with logo-only version for consistency. --Rezonansowy (talkcontribs) 12:50, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Wouldn't it be just as productive to update the rest to watermark versions? — {{U|Technical 13}} (tec) 14:31, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
  • I prefer the logo-only versions as well, for consistency and aesthetics. Template:Sister-inline will also need to be updated—right now the Wikiquote logo is barely distinguishable: Quotations related to at Wikiquote. LittleMountain5 05:18, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
@Technical 13: Thoughts? LittleMountain5 18:42, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
Done I still think that they should be all updated to watermark versions, but as is usual, I seem to be on the other side of consensus. As such, I've made the edit per this request. Happy editing. — {{U|Technical 13}} (tec) 19:03, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
