Cite Josephus[edit]

My new Template:Cite Josephus, intended to site two external cites, doesn't go very far. Can you help it? trespassers william (talk) 11:06, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

What do you mean by "doesn't go very far"? What's not working? — Cheers, JackLee talk 15:41, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
OK, I gave it a shot. Let me know if it's OK. — Cheers, JackLee talk 17:04, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

R from romanization[edit]

Hello there, I would like to request a new redirect template called Template:R from romanization or something similar to mark redirects from foreign languages which are not written using their original script, for example Nippon-koku for Japanese 日本国, or Táiwān for the Chinese 台灣 etc. - TheChampionMan1234 00:25, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Could you explain in more detail what you would like to achieve? It's not clear to me that you mean by "mark redirects". What visual appearance in articles do you wish the template to achieve? — Cheers, JackLee talk 08:32, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
@Jacklee:Please read Wikipedia:Template messages/Redirect pages, and I want it to be similar to the {{R from alternative language}} template. Hope this helps. - TheChampionMan1234 08:36, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
OK, looks a bit too complicated for me, sorry. Hope someone else can help. Perhaps you should ask the editor(s) who worked on {{R from alternative language}}. — Cheers, JackLee talk 13:01, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

Need CSS/JS savant help coding a template on Wikibooks[edit]

Hi! I can code most HTML templates and wikimarkup sleeping, but I need an example template that can pop-open or not (Hide or show toggle) at the readers discretion on the Wikibook to show technical examples, as outlined in full here.

  • This need is essentially an understated 'inline' form of the page bottom nav templates we use so often here on history and technical pages. The Wikibook CSS and JS files differ slightly (they seem to have partitioned more into include files, for starters.), but figuring out what's there that is needed for this should be straightforward with someone familiar with the class definitions here. It always helps to know what to search for! (or so I've found! <g>)
  • Also, if anyone knows if I can somehow gimmick the Search Window to only see in the one book (I'm figuring some scriptlette in my JS?) it would help me out in the land of subpages that is Wikibooks structures.

I'm best reached at my talk there and we can skype or IM if someone takes up this gauntlet!

Thanks for the time! // FrankB 04:33, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
