Template revisions[edit]

I've taken the liberty of revising the Dylan template you created a little while ago; it would have taken me longer to describe the changes I'd have suggested than to actually make them. The big change is to sort out the "standard" live albums separately -- the original version had several in the "albums" section, others in the "bootleg/live" section. Having gone that far, I then gave the "Bootleg Series" releases their own section; that's an intuitive call, and if it bothers you, just knock it back. Finally, klutz that I am, I can't figure out why my changes make the closing bracket visible, and nothing I've tried fixes it -- could you tell me what I've done wrong?

I really liked you changes, I thought about making similar changes myself but didn't quite now how to do them - so I'm really glad that you did! I did some changes to the Bootleg Series, not showing the full title in the template. This was just an intuitive call from me, so if you relly don't like the changes it's just to revert them (I did them to make the template smaller a little bit smaller).

Your intuition is even better than mine. . . Monicasdude 03:10, 18 July 2005 (UTC)
No, we're an unbeatable combination =)David Björklund 18:49, 18 July 2005 (UTC)


Why does it no longer list albums and such like in the box, that was much easier to use, instead of having to navigate through various screens you could just click on what you wanted.

I was just wondering the same thing. It is rather inconvenient and don't match with other similar templates (such as The Beatles and other groups). If unless someone can give an explain this pretty quickly I am going to change it back. Datapharmer 05:43, 24 December 2005 (UTC)
Well Done, I would change it but I have no idea how!
All of these large templates are being revised, because they are too large and take over the page. The template should not list individual albums (the Beatles one does not do this); it should be short and small. --FuriousFreddy 12:55, 24 December 2005 (UTC)

65 Revisited[edit]

Another contributor added the film 65 Revisited to the Bob Dylan nav template today. It showed as a red link. I did a bit of reading (found some reviews on the web), and then wrote a short article. It's real rough; please feel free to expand and improve. Hult041956 (talk) 00:48, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

Never Ending Tour dates[edit]

Do we really need to list every year of the NET? I think one link to Never Ending Tour would be enough; that page lists all the individual years anyway. The Wookieepedian (talk) 16:39, 23 August 2012 (UTC)


To editors who keep moving the 1973 Dylan album and The Basement Tapes back into studio albums: they are compilations; you can find this fact detailed in just about any Dylan source book, biography, or critical discography. PJtP (talk) 00:46, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
