Image Protocol[edit]

Is there an agreed protocol to use for the image and image2 variables? Should one be a photo of the terminal and the other should be a aerial view of the runway? Or is it more free form? I have some photos of general aviation airports and wanted to know where I should put them within the template. -Ichabod (talk)

Template-protected edit request on 8 November 2014[edit]

Please copy from the current sandbox[1]. I adjusted the {{location map}} template call to invoke the {{{default_width}}} parameter instead of absolute {{{width}}}. This allows automatic scaling of the map for narrow countries. Paul_012 (talk) 04:44, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

done. Frietjes (talk) 13:35, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 30 November 2014[edit]

Hey @Frietjes: and all others:
Template:Infobox airport/sandbox seems to be quite ready for prime time, see Template:Infobox airport/testcases. I fixed the remaining problems regarding the Owner/Operator variables and the column widths. What remains are some minor style differences. The more compact Runways and Helipads tables are even an improvement. The all-white captions just as well. All further optimizations should be done in incrementally followups IMHO. So I'd propose to launch the new template now.

  • Hey, what's up? Some feedback would be really nice... --PanchoS (talk) 14:20, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
    • now updated. I left the old version temporarily in the sandbox for comparison if there are problems. Frietjes (talk) 21:24, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Heliport code fix[edit]

In the code within the Heliport section

| n8 = {{{h8-number|}}} | l8-m = {{{h8-length-m|}}} | l8-f = {{{h8-length-f|}}} | s8 = {{{h8-surface|}}}
| n9 = {{{h5-number|}}} | l9-m = {{{h5-length-m|}}} | l9-f = {{{h5-length-f|}}} | s9 = {{{h5-surface|}}}
| n10 = {{{h10-number|}}} | l10-m = {{{h10-length-m|}}} | l10-f = {{{h10-length-f|}}} | s10 = {{{h10-surface|}}}

Can someone please change the "n9" to

| n9 = {{{h9-number|}}} | l9-m = {{{h9-length-m|}}} | l9-f = {{{h9-length-f|}}} | s9 = {{{h9-surface|}}}

Yes check.svg Done. SiBr4 (talk) 22:57, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

Architect field in Infobox[edit]

Hi. I would like to propose adding the field of "Architect" to the infobox. For famous structures and buildings, it makes sense to cite who designed & built it. It is mentioned in most every article but not in the infobox.

For infobox_museums, it worked via embedding {{Infobox building}}, which has also got a few other architecture-related parameters, like |architectural_style= with this code:

{{Infobox museum|embedded={{Infobox building|embed=yes|architect=The architect}}}}
Infobox airport
Building details
Design and construction
Architect The architect

Can we do the same for Airports?
