Testcase "talk= name=foo page=template:foo text=text" and the one directly below it.[edit]

Mr. Stradivarius, I don't know if this is related to the change that was just made to the module or something that has been there for awhile. In Template:Ambox/testcases#talk= name=foo page=template:foo text=text the link to the "talk page" is set to go to section #.23 which is ## decoded... Is that intentional?

That was like that before, and is actually a feature of MediaWiki, not of the module - see my sandbox for a demonstration. A little more complex is the question of why the ambox template put a hash in the fragment by default. I am assuming that the previous template needed a non-blank value, and the hash sign was a convenient one to use because it is unlikely to be a section heading, but I could be wrong there. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 02:01, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Not done: it's not clear what changes you want made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format. — {{U|Technical 13}} (tec) 22:01, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Feature request[edit]

Is it possible that this template produces "The article ..." instead of "This article ..." when used inside the {{multiple issues}} template? (This would require the sect parameter to be used of course.) This would improve the wording when multiple issues are used. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 10:39, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

@Mr. Stradivarius:, could you advise on this? Thanks — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 13:11, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
Text is not set here. You should ask this at Template talk:Multiple issues. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 17:13, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
The text I am talking about is set here (or rather Module:Message box). — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 19:59, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
In that case... Module talk:Message box. :) -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 22:06, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
We could do this, but we'd have to add a parameter so that we could set it in {{multiple issues}}. Any preferences on parameter naming/format? — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 01:14, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
That doesn't sound right. Multiple issues does not actually call this template - it just sets up the class="hide-when-compact" which then means that some of the text is not displayed inside it. I'm not sure if we can use class="show-when-compact" which could then be used to display "The" instead of "This". It's a minor issue, so not worth coding anything complicated. Regards — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 13:45, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
Edokter, the message box module powers lots of different message boxes, and this issue is only related to article messages boxes, so I still maintain this is the correct venue :) — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 13:45, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Amboxes are not shown in mobile version[edit]

In contrast to omboxes, amboxes are not show in the mobile version. The boxes are completely omitted or produce error messages like "There are problems with this page". In the mobile version you can see the source code of these boxes but they are not presented. Do you know why? --RolandUnger (talk) 18:25, 8 November 2014 (UTC)
