Template talk:Ambox

I have added a warning to the documentation regarding the "cat" and "all" parameters that they should not be linked, nor should "Category:" be used. What ever happened to the "cat-date" parameter? Debresser (talk) 16:17, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

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.

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)
