Request for help with template documentation[edit]

I am hoping that you can help me with a very small template documentation change. The {{Cite XXX}} family of Citation Style 1 templates share a common set of documentation subtemplates, with variables in some of them to show and hide particular sentences or sections in the documentation of specific templates. I have tried to change the documentation to hide one particular sentence in the {{Cite arXiv}} documentation, but I have been unsuccessful. I think it would be just a few minutes of work for you.

The relevant discussion and links are here. Thanks. – Jonesey95 (talk) 23:10, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

I think this edit should fix it. -- WOSlinker (talk) 06:14, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
Perfect. That worked. Thanks for your help. – Jonesey95 (talk) 12:39, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

Template:AE sanction[edit]

Is there any way of fixing {{AE sanction}} so it works sanely? It is only used once (here) at the moment, but it is important and probably worth fixing. There are two problems: clicking the section edit link edits the template, and the four tildes are not replaced with the signature. My guess is that the signature problem is because the edit adding the text did not use subst, so one of those tricky procedures to generate an error would be good. The heading is due to the most recent edit at the template which added the heading (and failed to update the docs which say "because no header is provided by this template, when you use it you will have to enter a subject man"—that last word should be "manually"). Perhaps the heading would work if substituted? Using NOEDITSECTION would remove all edit links from the target page, and using h2 tags would give no way to edit that section (I think). What should happen? I'll ping the admin to let them know. Johnuniq (talk) 02:08, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

{{Subst check top}} and {{Subst check bottom}} could be added to make it display an error message if not substituted or it could be tagged with {{substituted|auto=yes}} and then User:AnomieBOT will come along and do any substitution (but the signature may be wrong then). -- WOSlinker (talk) 06:12, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
