Category formatting[edit]

Now that this category isn't full of articles, the subcategories could be reformatted to remove the asteriskes so they sort normally. Too tired to do it myself right now. --kingboyk 20:22, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

Wow, that was quick - thanks! :) --kingboyk 11:02, 30 August 2006 (UTC)


Sorry but this is not the purpose of {{fmbox}} which is designed for edit notices and such. If you don't want a box, then you can just put the text without any template! — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 19:26, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

As there was no response, I've replaced cmbox again. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 10:12, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
Undone again (sorry I missed your comment, this isn't on my watchlist). I really don't get the problem here. The category description is not something that should be shoved inside a {{cmbox}}. A transparent {{fmbox}} was merely the simplest way of properly aligning the icon with the text, and to insist that I don't use {{fmbox}} for such purposes seems unnecessarily bureaucratic. Is there some technical issue here that I'm unaware of? PC78 (talk) 16:21, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Please see Category talk:Redirects from other capitalisations#Is something wrong? for why I changed to the {{LargeCategoryTOC2}} template.

This Is Where I Came In[edit]

When I first started working on |listas= Category:Biography articles with listas parameter had some pages after "Zz", pages whose sort value started with a character that was not allowed. While I was going through the alphabet and fixed all those whose 2nd character was not allowed, such as "Pérez", some kind person did all 154 of the ones after "Zz". The Great Cleanup Crew have Category:Biography articles without listas parameter down to under 49,000 pages. JimCubb (talk) 23:31, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

Sorting problem[edit]

In the listing below taken from the main alpha listing on the WPBiography article page attached to this talk page, these three articles (Meara, Ericcson and Way Kuo) aren't sorted properly. I have tried to delete and replace the listas parameter for each of them, but it doesn't work. Not sure why this is; it doesn't look like it should be a problem. Any help appreciated.--FeanorStar7 11:53, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

issue resolved; I fixed the last one, Meara by deleting the banner shell and completely replacing the bio tag and fixing spacing issues.--FeanorStar7 10:46, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
