Attribution notes[edit]

The Creative Commons license includes the statement: "Attribution. You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor." This template does not appear to support the inclusion of an attribution statement and I'd suggest that it be modified to allow such inclusion, for instance as a pipe-included parameter that would display the "attribute as" statement within the license box but below the license definition string.

User:JiFish modified this template in April 2006 to include an optional attribution parameter. I have made a few changes to pages around Wikipedia to indicate that the attribution is available, and should be used, with this tag. I am considering changing this template so that the attribution line will always appear, whether or not an attribution parameter is specified. Comments on this in advance would be appreciated, since this template is heavily used.EAS 12:46, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

Minor changes[edit]


I would like to make a few changed to this template. Here is some revised code that we could use for the table:

{| style="clear:both; margin: 0.5em auto; text-align: center; width:80%; background-color:#f8f8f8; border:2px solid #e0e0e0; padding:5px;"
| [[Image:CC some rights reserved.svg|CC|90px]]<br />[[Image:Cc-by new white.svg|24px|BY]] [[Image:Cc-sa white.svg|24px|SA]]
| ''This work is licensed under the [[Creative Commons]]<br /> Attribution ShareAlike License version 2.5:<br />http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.5/{{#if:{{{1|}}}|<br />Attribution: {{{1|}}}}}''

This would make 4 changes:

  1. Uses shorter alternate text on images for the benefit of screen readers and text-only browsers
  2. Changes "This image" to "This work" for flexibility
  3. "This image" no longer links to the current page
  4. Changes "v." to "version" for clarity

Yes check.svg Done. However, I retained the Media link because that allows for a direct link to the actual file. If you really want it removed, re-enable the editprotected request. Cheers. --MZMcBride 05:07, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
OK, thanks. I suppose the "This work" link can stay. —Remember the dot (talk) 15:31, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

This image link[edit]

The "This image" phrase is linkified in CC templates only, not in PD or others. Is there a specific reason, technical or legal, to include such a link? It prevents unused CC images from appearing in Special:Unusedimages. --DStoykov 05:57, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Good point about Special:UnusedImages. Let's remove the link. —Remember the dot (talk) 01:39, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. Cheers. --MZMcBride 01:51, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
Good, thanks! What about the rest of the CC templates? There are 20+ of them and all are protected. I'm not supposed to make a separate request for each of them, am I? --DStoykov 09:47, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
Pretty much. User:Zscout370 (Return Fire) 17:31, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

Edit request from Mhiji, 13 December 2010[edit]

{{edit protected}} Could someone please move the "This template should only be used on file pages." sentence from the template to the /doc? Thanks Mhiji (talk) 13:17, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

I believe the intention is for this message to be displayed if used on the wrong namespace. However I have supressed this from the template display. Please confirm if this is okay before I attend to your numerous other requests. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 14:48, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
Sorry ignore me... Didn't realise it was an error message (maybe it could be made more prominent/red text? - it's not very obvious at the moment). Feel free to suppress it from display on this page and the others if you like but it's fine if not. Mhiji (talk) 16:48, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
Could you remove your request on the other pages then, if you are withdrawing the request? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 12:07, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Images of non-free works[edit]

I've implemented a tweak in the sandbox version, namely {{#ifeq:|{{{dw|no}}}|no|{{free media}}|}} instead of coding {{free media}} directly. Specfiying dw=yes will supress the categorisation in Category:All free media, for derivative works where the subject shown is non-free, and thus can't be moved to Commons.

It would be appreciated if this straightforward change was implemented in the main template. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 11:09, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Done Please remember to update the documentation as well. Best — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 11:51, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
