This template[edit]

Is for tagging templates ported or active on other sisterprojects with the same general logic and names. It will handle a name over ride (Like when Name Case on sisterprojects are all different), but if one of the other sister's needs a name variation, the guts of this template should be hand ported into the template of interest, and overtly programed for the correct link names. This should only be needed for the different name or name case variant sister templates--everything else will default to the Meta 'PAGENAME' magic word. // FrankB 07:56, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

Could the project leader please give use a outline, how this is meant to work. AzaToth 22:52, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

Parameter names[edit]

I think the old parameter names from the Wikimedia Commons version of this template were more logical, (wp for wikipedia, wb for wikibooks, wt for wiktionary, ws for wikisource, wv for wikiversity, meta, for metawiki, commons for commons, and species for wikispecies). I used the two letter abbreviations that are used for project namespace shortcuts on the different projects, except for Meta, Wikispecies, Commons,( and by mistake for Wiktionary). Meta is so short that it can be used without abbreviation. Commons is also a short name, but if an abbreviation is needed I think the namespace shortcut COM is better than CMS. Wikispecies uses WS, the same as Wikisource, so that is a bit of a problem. I used 'species' because of the domain name species.wikipedia.org. The current three letter parameter names looks a bit arbitrary and are only used in this template. And is MediaWiki really a sister project? / 10:09, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Three letter mnemonics have more combinations, and some of the two-letter combinations you modified the commons version to have cause collisions on other sister projects with extant templates. The three letter mnemonics, were carefully tested versus that issue before being selected. Nothing to remember anyway, the template gives you the names if you define ALL=1, which should be done when applying it to see which sisters do have the template currently being tagged or if it is indeed a template with the same functionality. Some names do very different things. // FrankB 21:08, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Interwikitmp-grp1 vandalism[edit]

Template:Interwikitmp-grp1(edit talk links history) There appears to be some vandalism on the Template:Interwikitmp-grp1 page. The following text is just to the left of the interwiki table.

"occupation latterly :-) occupation latterly :-)"

The page is protected from edits, so could an Admin remove that text? Unicycle77 (talk) 17:01, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Request Editprotect 2008-07-07[edit]


  • Can you please remove the protection, I need to make a tweak to default operation, and this thing is too complicated to ask anyone else to do it. Ping me here on the commons and I'll come back then let you know when I'm done so you can reprotect. Thanks, see the above note too! // FrankB 18:10, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
Reduced the template to indefinite semi-protection. It's not very widely used, and the places where it is are not very public. --MZMcBride (talk) 05:46, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
