Fixed, I think. Took me a couple of tries. -- Diannaa (talk) 17:11, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
I've fiddled with the template a little more; see Template talk:Infobox political party/seats. Huon (talk) 18:14, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
why cant you restore the orginal version of before 21 december 2014? that was what i wanted to be helped by, and again this is not about party of the swedes alone many pages other pages got messed up after that, meybe its not the "/seats" template but the general infobox political party template Dannis243 (talk) 16:09, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
It was yourself who noted that reverting the changes of 21 December didn't help. I rather doubt it would magically have helped if I had reverted instead of you. Only afterwards did we begin to fiddle with all the other templates. To me the template looks okay now; if you disagree, can you please describe the problem? (I have to note that you seem to have a history of complaints so vague that others cannot understand them.) Huon (talk) 17:34, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
Can you atleast make the result bars bigger, i think it would help (the boxex in which the numbers result are) so it looks more like in the original version bigger vertically not longer (talk) 16:53, 13 January 2015 (UTC)
For your convenience I've created a dummy version of the Party of the Swedes infobox in my personal sandbox, User:Huon/Test, where I've increased the height of the boxes from 1.3em to 1.5em. Personally I think it looks worse. You're welcome to fiddle with that dummy version by editing my sandbox and changing all occurrences of "1.5em" to something else. If you think it's the infobox itself, you can also edit that template (or an old version of that template) and choose the "Preview page with this template" to preview that template on User:Huon/Test, but please don't save changes to that template until you're absolutely certain it looks the way you want it to look - and even then it may be better to propose those specific changes you want implemented on the template's talk page instead of immediately changing the look of all political party infoboxes on Wikipedia.

what do i supposed to change in Template:Infobox_political_party/sandbox so it looks like your test page, i tried changing
labelstyle = line-height:1.3em; to line-height:1.5em
datastyle = line-height:1.3em; to line-height:1.5em
but that did not change anything Dannis243 (talk) 12:57, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
The dummy version on my test page is modified so it already incorporates hard-coded copies of the {{Infobox political party/seats}} template. The parameters in my dummy version aren't the parameters of {{Infobox political party}} itself, but of those hard-coded copies of the "seats" sub-template, which controls the width of the boxes. I've switched my test page so that it uses {{Infobox political party/sandbox}} instead of the live version of that template; now you can try out any combination of parameters of the infobox (via its sandbox) and the "seats" template (via my test page) without affecting the live templates. When you've found a combination of parameters you think looks good, we can implement it in the live templates. Good luck! Huon (talk) 16:54, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
I changed the {{help me}} template back to "helped" because you really need help just from the 2 editors who helped you before, as they are most familiar with this problem, Huon and Diannaa. Since I mentioned them in this message, that should attract their attention. But if not you can write to either of them directly on their talk page. —    Bill W.    (Talk)  (Contrib)  (User:Wtwilson3)  — 14:49, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

i dont understand[edit]

Huon i still do not understand what you mean, my question was what i change in Template:Infobox_political_party/sandbox so it looks like the original version, i tried to change 1.3 to 1.5 in (Template:Infobox political party/seats) but that did not help, so what should i do Dannis243 (talk) 12:41, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

I have no idea what you call the "original version". The "ORIGINAL VERSION!" image above is either not Wikipedia, or using a CSS so heavily customized that I wouldn't presume to be able to reproduce its effects. You can fiddle with the parameters in Template:Infobox_political_party/sandbox, you can fiddle with the parameters in the dummy template at User:Huon/Test, which represent the parameters of the box itself; in combination those are all parameters that could possibly be modified. If you cannot find a combination of those parameters that achieves what you want, chances are that no one else will be better at finding a combination of those parameters you like, particularly when you can't even say what you dislike about the current version.

ok i meant the size of the result boxex with the numbers inside them(original means the size of User:Huon/Test), how do i change it to that from the current small size of the result boxex Dannis243 (talk) 12:56, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
OK, I hadn't realized User:Huon/Test already was a solution you'd be content with. I'll propose those changes at Template talk:Infobox political party for a wider discussion, and if no one objects I'll implement those changes in a week or so. Huon (talk) 17:26, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
ok it has been more than a week, so can you please implement those changes now just as you said no one objected it Dannis243 (talk) 12:11, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
