I'm stuck. I've done a little work on Robert Finn (bishop). More recently, a coat of arms with a Latin motto has been added to the infobox which is set up under the "infobox bishopstyles" heading visible here. I tried to add a line for motto for an English translation but "motto=" didn't register. I found my way here in my search for what "infobox bishopstyles" was so as to find if I could find a way to enter the translation. I found the "Religion Topics" dropdown in this article but nothing there. No "bishopstyles" in a search of the article or in the archives of this Talk page. A search of all Wikipedia and wiki: also yielded nothing on "bishopstyles". Can anyone direct me on my way, here? I did check at Coat of arms and seem to be on the right path (with the right term: motto), substantively; and feel an English translation is appropriate for the encyclopedia and the article.
I do anticipate one further problem once I find a way into the infobox so I'll house the whole edit here for the time being, too; in short, I'm relying on Google Translate for my translation. I seem to recall problems using a Google-based citation. I'm prepared to cross that bridge when I get to it but am open to comment on it here, too. Here's the line I want to add to the Finn infobox: "Seek ye first the kingdom of God" <ref>[https://translate.google.com/?hl=en&tab=wT#la/en/quaerite%20primum%20regnum%20dei Google Translate from "Quaerite primum regnum dei" (Latin)]</ref>
Any help appreciated. Thanks. Swliv (talk) 23:55, 4 October 2014 (UTC)
Good start, thanks Frietjes. But simple substitution of the "Infobox Christian leader" for the "bishopstyles" template certainly didn't work. Three specific parameters -- dipstyle=The Most Reverend; offstyle=Your Excellency; Monsignor; and relstyle=Bishop -- are excluded. The "leader" template would theoretically (per your linked page) include motto -- my goal -- though the motto also didn't come up in my first try with "leader".
I don't have time for much more now but also will want to think about providing a portal to the 'leader' page on this 'Manual' page; where currently only Latter Day Saints and another are touched under Religion.
If any further direction off this first cut, again appreciated. Cheers. Swliv (talk) 12:25, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
Frietjes, I have found no way INTO 'bishopstyles' to add "motto="; and, a little awkwardly (in practice), motto in "leader" template comes up under "Personal details" whereas I understand (and see, under "bishopstyles") the coat of arms (and hence motto I'm assuming) come/would come under "Styles" (also more connected to the diocese than to the individual bishop? that's how I'm seeing it for now). I've shown the best way I can work it out here at my Wiki sandbox; awkward-looking. More thoughts? Thanks for your help to here. I'll go with the sandbox version with explanation -- "motto translation; a bit jury-rigged but no motto option under 'bishopstyles', no way INTO 'b'styles' that I've found Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style#"infobox bishopstyles"" -- if there's nothing else, see how it flies.
If you could tell me how to get into "bishopstyles" I'm sure I could work with, say, "Caption" or some other available header; or, as I've said, add "Motto".
Looking at Carlos Filipe Ximenes Belo, the coat of arms doesn't have any Latin in it; but the article uses both '-styles' boxes; I'd have the same problem if there was Latin I wanted to show the translation for; as my sandbox version does but with the awkward doubling of Personal details some of which may not be so-much-personal details. Duffy of course has no coat of arms at all. Thanks again. Swliv (talk) 16:33, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
Swliv, I don't see a reason why the motto shouldn't be in "Infobox Christian leader" instead. if you want to change where the motto appears in "Infobox Christian leader", then you should start a thread at template talk:Infobox Christian leader, since there are more editors who watch that page than this one.

┌────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────┘Frietjes, for better or worse (and I see now you specifically advised against it, above), I went to Template talk:Infobox bishop styles instead. And for your reference, incidentally, in case you hadn't already figured it out, I didn't know that I was looking for a template ("template:"); and I guess I didn't make that clear above exactly. Once you directed me to "template talk:Infobox Christian leader" and I worked there a while it dawned on me you'd given me the key to the other door as well. The joys. We'll see. Thanks again.

What is the BLP policy with salaries in an infobox? When noting an individual's income or salary on a BLP info box, do we include the dollar amount cited in a reliable source even if it includes other expenses or reimbursements? Thanks! Meatsgains (talk) 19:47, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
