Year founded[edit]

The year founded field adds the article to a category "Category:Populated places established in XXXX", but in the cases where the settlement was established before 13th century, there are no "Category:Populated places established in XXXX" categories and it autamtically adds the red category to the article. I personally think those currently red categories with only one article in it should not be created. So, is there a way that if the year inserted is smaller than 1200 for example it would add the article to a parental category "Category:Populated places established in the XXth century". See: Münster for example. Flying Saucer (talk) 12:36, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

@Flying Saucer: possible, but for now you can fix these by doing this. Frietjes (talk) 18:57, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Missing parameter check[edit]

This template is generating links to (region) when none of the {{{Regierungsbezirk}}} {{{regbzk}}} and {{{region}}} parameters are set. The block of markup below needs to be wrapped in an additional set of tests. Posting this here in the hopes that someone better at markup and more familiar with this template can do so in an elegant manner. - TB (talk) 11:01, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

| subdivision_name2       = {{#ifexist: {{{Regierungsbezirk|{{{regbzk|{{{region}}} }}} }}} (region) | [[{{{Regierungsbezirk|{{{regbzk|{{{region}}} }}} }}} (region)|{{{Regierungsbezirk|{{{regbzk|{{{region}}} }}} }}}]]
  | {{#ifexist: {{{Regierungsbezirk|{{{regbzk|{{{region}}} }}} }}} | [[{{{Regierungsbezirk|{{{regbzk|{{{region}}} }}} }}}]] |<!--else-->{{{Regierungsbezirk|{{{regbzk|{{{region|}}} }}} }}}
  }} }}
fixed, will require the articles to be re-cached to update the what links here. Frietjes (talk) 18:53, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Add missing default value[edit]

For example please add the Wikidata (and maybe more) {{#Property:P94}} as | #default = {{{Wappen|{{{image_coa|{{#Property:P94}}}}} }}} -- πϵρήλιο 12:25, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: please make your requested changes to the template's sandbox first; see WP:TESTCASES. — {{U|Technical 13}} (tec) 12:55, 19 May 2014 (UTC)


I get that this will get a Red information icon with gradient background.svg because you want other people to do your coding for you instead of addressing the merits of their request, but at some point a demonym field should be included into this infobox, if it's becoming standard for German location articles. — LlywelynII 04:14, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Infobox settlement overlap[edit]

Really, everything you didn't bother to copy from {{infobox settlement}} should be used here or the template should be depreciated. We shouldn't have to use two templates when one will suffice to get the same information across. — LlywelynII 04:16, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
