Added support for |greatgreatgrandparent_authority= to correct a glitch when the great-great grandparent displays. Bob the WikipediaN (talkcontribs) 03:22, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Consistency with Taxoboxes[edit]

Is there a reason that this doesn't call Template:Taxobox/core? Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 17:03, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Only that I didn't want to intrude on it, although I think it's probably a good idea now that I've got the basics working. I finally found the bit that italicizes the genus and species names. Face-smile.svg I'll see about adapting the {{Taxobox/core}} to handle it now. Bob the Wikipedian (talkcontribs) 20:56, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
Done. So simple it was actually scary. Bob the Wikipedian (talkcontribs) 21:08, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
This is a good idea, but wouldn't it be nice if the colour scheme was different from the animal taxobox? So one would see that the article is about an ichnotaxon at once. FunkMonk (talk) 09:14, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
What color would you like? Here's a table of the colors currently in use:
Viruses rgb(250,250,190) also Viroids
Bacteria rgb(220,235,245)
Archaea rgb(195,245,250) also Nanoarchaeota (Nanarchaeota), Korarchaeota, Thaumarchaeota, Crenarchaeota and Euryarchaeota
Eukaryota rgb(245,215,255) For eukaryotes with no other colour defined
Opisthokonta rgb(240,240,120) For opisthokonts with no other colour defined
Animalia rgb(235,235,210)
Fungi rgb(145,250,250)
Archaeplastida rgb(180,250,180) also Plantae and Viridiplantae
SAR rgb(200,250,80) also Chromalveolata
Excavata rgb(250,250,100) also Protista
Amoebozoa rgb(170,250,205)

Hmmm, I'm thinking something earthy... Brown? Grey? FunkMonk (talk) 13:50, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
New color is "peru". How's it look? Bob the Wikipedian (talkcontribs) 03:49, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
I've made it a little paler to improve the contrast – hope that that's okay. Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 14:07, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
Looks good to me! FunkMonk (talk) 15:48, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Upgrading to the next version of {{str find}}[edit]

Per the recent modifications to {{strfind short}}, it has been advised this faster and more capable template take the place of {{str find}} where possible. Because {{PAGENAMEBASE}} is a structural template at the foundation of the code of this template, this edit could potentially cause havoc if not evaluated first for soundness.

I'm requesting anyone who has enough know-how to evaluate this proposed modification respond to the RfC listed at Template talk:PAGENAMEBASE. The template is being used in this template. Bob the WikipediaN (talkcontribs) 03:27, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Italicize ichnogenera[edit]

This template should automatically italicize ichnogenera. Secondplanet (talk) 22:25, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Protected edit request on 24 December 2014[edit]

  1. search the template for | subdivision =
  2. remove the first one (just before the comment), since it is duplicated by the second one.

this will remove a bunch of pages from Category:Pages using duplicate arguments in template calls

alternatively, change the protection to template-editor, and I will do it. Frietjes (talk) 22:54, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done @Frietjes: I made the edit and unprotected it as well - there were only 7 transclusions. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 04:13, 25 December 2014 (UTC)

Child rank not automatically generated[edit]

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ophiomorpha. Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 11:08, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

@Smith609: I think it's good practice to explicitly specify |subdivision_ranks=. When this is omitted, the rank generated from the parent is often wrong now – the system you & Bob implemented worked well when most taxonomy templates were concerned with 'standard' Linnaean ranks, but so many are now for 'nonstandard' ranks (mirorder, parvorder, clades, etc.). Although a child rank could be generated from these, many of the newer ones are not used consistently.
However, something should appear if |subdivision_ranks= is omitted. In the case of {{Automatic taxobox}}, I'm inclined to supply something generic, like "Subdivisions".
 Done However, for {{Ichnobox}} the likely ranks are more predictable, so I've now fixed the template to generate subdivision ranks. Peter coxhead (talk) 17:22, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Merged versions[edit]

Up to today, almost all articles used {{Ichnobox/short}} rather than {{Ichnobox}}. Looking at the code and testing changing articles from one to the other, I couldn't see any real difference in the output, and having two made maintenance more difficult. So I've merge them, with the "/short" version a redirect to the "normal" version. If anyone notices any problems, please post here. Peter coxhead (talk) 12:35, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
