Party Presidents[edit]

The Andrew Walker article states that he was a president pre 1917. Is the list in the template not complete? Schwede66 08:01, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Probably. When I created the template I just copied the names from New Zealand Labour Party#List of presidents, which only starts at 1931. I doubt that it went 15+ years without a president, so go ahead and add to the template and the Party article. Adabow (talk · contribs) 08:47, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Leadership elections[edit]

I wonder whether we should subdivide leadership to elections (already there) and contestants (to be added). Thoughts? Schwede66 08:08, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

New layout[edit]

Proposed new layout, akin to the UK Labour Party (note that the list of General Secretaries is incomplete). Was also thinking of adding a row for the chief whip. Thoughts? Kiwichris (talk) 08:54, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Initial visibility

To set the template's initial visibility, the |state= parameter may be used:

  • |state=collapsed: {{New Zealand Labour Party|state=collapsed}} to show the template collapsed, i.e., hidden apart from its title bar
  • |state=expanded: {{New Zealand Labour Party|state=expanded}} to show the template expanded, i.e., fully visible
  • |state=autocollapse: {{New Zealand Labour Party|state=autocollapse}}
    • shows the template collapsed to the title bar if there is a {{navbar}}, a {{sidebar}}, or some other table on the page with the collapsible attribute
    • shows the template in its expanded state if there are no other collapsible items on the page

If the |state= parameter is not set, the template's initial visibility is taken from the |default= parameter in the template. For this template, that currently evaluates to autocollapse.

Squad maintenance
Check completeness of transclusions

Good! Have made some suggested edits; feel free to revert if you think that certain titles must be capitalised. It needs to make consistent use of endashes as per MOS:DATERANGE. Schwede66 21:01, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
I've completed the list of general secretaries, and fixed the en-dashes. Paora (talk) 11:27, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
Started work on a row for chief/senior whip. Still incomplete and a few I'm not 100% sure on.Kiwichris (talk) 05:49, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
@Schwede66 and Kiwichris: Shall we change the layout of the template now? I came along to this template to add the deputy leaders and I stumbled across this. It looks great! J947 23:41, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
Fine by me. Just make sure that it gets done properly, which means no cut-and-paste moves. If unsure what that means or why it matters, I can swap things round. Unless anybody brings up reasons why the change shouldn't go ahead, of course. Schwede66 23:48, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
Schwede66, why would you do a cut-and-paste move to change this? I don't understand. J947 23:52, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
J947 I said that because not everybody is aware that it's not something to be done as it causes a lot of work to fix it. However, I said that before I checked that the content was actually created on the talk page (i.e. not in a separate template or sandbox, say), so there wasn't another way of doing it to what you did. The background to all of this is of legal nature and just to be sure that we are not upsetting the apple cart, your edit summary should have stated 'copying content from talk page'. But it's pretty close and will do; just remember for next time. Schwede66 18:55, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the advice. J947 18:59, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
Navboxes should only be added to articles that are linked from within. Schwede66 04:58, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Moved here from Schwede's talk page

Kiwichris started it. J947 05:04, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

John Glover is contained within the navbox as one of the general secretaries. Schwede66 05:08, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Shall we also change the other party templates? J947 03:29, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Sure. Schwede66 04:58, 24 January 2017 (UTC)
