Edit Request 20/11/14[edit]

Can someone please centre all the infobox heading which run down the left hand side like how it used to be please? Gavbadger (talk) 18:34, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

Request template disabled, until consensus is reached. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 19:22, 20 November 2014 (UTC)
It is a uncontroversial simple edit which when it was originally changed to left align no consensus was needed for that. Gavbadger (talk) 19:28, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

when was it center aligned? using the default left alignment appears to be the standard. Frietjes (talk) 17:37, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
This edit removed the center align so it moved to the left [1] It is currently aligned in the centre in "Infobox military installation/sandbox" but the centre align was removed in "Infobox military installation/sandbox2". Gavbadger (talk) 19:06, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
Gavbadger, I just put that version in sandbox2 (verify). when I look at the testcases, I don't see any difference in alignment in the labels between the current version and sandbox2. if you are seeing a difference, provide a screenshot or OS/browser details? Frietjes (talk) 22:08, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
"Infobox military installation" is still aligned to the left, but both "Infobox military installation/sandbox" and "Infobox military installation/sandbox2" are now center align for the sub titles such as "Owner", "Controlled by" and "Open to the public" and the rest down the left hand side. Gavbadger (talk) 22:12, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
Gavbadger, which operating system and web browser? Frietjes (talk) 22:20, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
IE 11 and Windows 7. Gavbadger (talk) 22:22, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

The |labelstyle= parameter is currently duplicated, so the first instance is being ignored. – Jonesey95 (talk) 21:41, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

Working on this. Testing sandbox. -DePiep (talk) 21:49, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

I am surprised to find and edit called "test" in a 5k template [3]. -DePiep (talk) 23:10, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

Edit Request 20/11/15[edit]

for all kinds of fences or barriers such as Hungarian border barrier, providing the area covered doesn't make any sense. The barrier's length would however be the most relevant feature of all to include. Even for areas of the Korean Demilitarized Zone type it would be nice, if both length and the area could be given. I therefore added a simple {{{length}}} parameter to the sandbox and ask you kindly to add it to the template.
Thanks, and regards, PanchoS (talk) 01:33, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

Sounds sensible, but please allow time for others to comment before using {{editprotected}}. If you have consensus (or no response) in a few days feel free to reactivate. Regards — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 09:53, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
PanchoS, done. Frietjes (talk) 16:24, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
Thank you, awesome. PanchoS (talk) 19:03, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Simplification idea[edit]

So as it stands now, we have parameters set up so that the template has the ability to include both a coordinates template and the ability to add degrees, minutes, and seconds as well. Is there any reason that we need the latter option and cannot combine it into the former one? Also, I noticed on the 2015 San Bernardino shooting page that there is the ability to have a zoomable map of sorts, so would anyone else be supportive of adding that to the infobox in the near future, as well? Kevin Rutherford (talk) 05:19, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

Kevin Rutherford, sure, you can replace |latitude= with |latd=. changing the documentation is easy. changing all the articles will require a bot. the zoomable map feature is available to any infobox which uses {{location map}}. you just add a '#' between the different maps. Frietjes (talk) 15:41, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
Beyond your support, do you think this is something that would be necessary, as I figure doing that would make it a bit more user-friendly, as the coordinates bit can sometimes be a pain to learn. Kevin Rutherford (talk) 00:20, 8 December 2015 (UTC)
not necessary, but would simplify the template code if the alternative syntax were corrected and removed. Frietjes (talk) 15:35, 8 December 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know, as I will try to get around to a bot request in the next day or so. Kevin Rutherford (talk) 03:44, 10 December 2015 (UTC)
