Template:Cite OLMS[edit]

I could use some help with a template (Template:Cite OLMS) I recently created, on two fronts: mainly, figuring out how to properly direct link the various documents relevant to the template, querying a database that normally presents an interface dependent on the browser session and interaction via javascript search pages. Secondly, presenting the citations in a useful way for both online and print.

The database is one of a department of the United States government, the US Department of Labor's Office of Labor-Management Standards. Documents are usually annually filed LM-##'s, but can also include various attachments, or reports commissioned by the DOL or OLMS. These are probably considered mainly primary sources, containing raw statistics and/or decisions concerning labor-related organizations and officers, including unions, employers, and consultancy firms.

The biggest need is help searching existing direct links to hosted documents or prodding the database for new direct links, to figure out new or improved ways of citing specific documents, and getting the template to handle these fairly esoteric needs.

I continue to try improving the template, but for what I haven't been able to figure out yet, I've created a short wishlist. Thanks, djr13 (talk) 19:07, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Simple English Infobox Template[edit]

Is there an infobox person template for the Simple English Wikipedia? The vocabulary of the standard person infobox template is too difficult for the mandate of the Simple English Wikipedia. I recommend changing:

Occupation -> Work

Predecessor -> Person Before

Successor -> Person After

Spouse -> Husband/Wife

(While I understand the expediency of using 'spouse,' the reality is that 'husband' and 'wife' occur much more frequently on word lists for nonnative English speakers than 'spouse')

I imagine these are simple changes, but they are beyond my programming abilities. Any help appreciated, rbae500 (talk) 3, January 2015.

Templates can only be used at the wiki where they are saved so changes would have to be made at the Simple English Wikipedia, for example simple:Template:Infobox person and others in simple:Category:People infobox templates. PrimeHunter (talk) 02:11, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Embedded audio[edit]

Template:Audio is supposed to be used for pronunciation etc, but doesn't actually embed the audio, it only links it. Template:Listen embeds the audio but offers a real player, which is overkill for a 2 second pronunciation audio. Is there any way to either make Template:Audio embed the file or to make Template:Listen so small that it can be used inline for pronunciation? Who could make such a change? --Dnaber (talk) 21:25, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
