Hi The Banner, I've just created this sidebar and will be trying to get it in order over the course of the next few days or so. But you keep reverting, including reverting to a version with the wrong name of the template, so that anyone clicking on the little "edit" button at the bottom will be taken to the wrong page. I'm adding dab pages, lists and categories in order to link to groups of churches because there are so many of them. Why would doing that be a problem? SlimVirgin (talk) 01:43, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

[copied by SV from SV talk] Adding links to disambiguation pages is the problem. When you want them all in the article, you better create a "List of ... Christian Science Churches" instead of pointing to a dab-page. The Banner talk 11:40, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
@The Banner: Hi again, could you say what the problem is with adding dab pages? Also, could you please fix the template title that you changed? It is making links lead to the wrong template, and has removed the link to the Christian Science article in the template title. SlimVirgin (talk) 22:07, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
Wikipedia:Disambiguation dos and don'ts and Wikipedia:Disambiguation can answer your questions. The Banner talk 23:28, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
Those pages don't say anything about not adding them to sidebars or navboxes that I can see, so I'm going to restore some of them. There are too many churches to link to them directly, so linking to categories and dab pages helps the reader find them without cluttering up the sidebar too much.

When the template shows up again at Templates with disambiguation links the result will be quite predictable. This is also a nice page: Wikipedia:Disambiguation pages with links The Banner talk 21:36, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
