Adding to pages[edit]

I am adding this template to all the pages linked in the template using WP:AWB. Any questions, feel free to ask, I am watching the page,Sadads (talk) 01:51, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Book order[edit]

These books appear to be in alphabetical order. Most infoboxes would order these chronologically by first publication date. (talk) 19:26, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Reducing duplicate links[edit]

I see there are several links that go to the same page in this navigation box (which is something we should avoid according to WP:NAV). I realize that sometimes this cannot be avoided, but it might not be necessary to have so many duplicate links here. One way to reduce the duplicate links would be to remove the collection links next to "Extricating Young Gussie", "Jeeves Makes an Omelette", "Jeeves and the Greasy Bird", "Crime Wave at Blandings", "Birth of a Salesman", and "Sticky Wicket at Blandings". The "Short story collection" section could be changed to "Other short story collections", and My Man, Jeeves, The Inimitable Jeeves, Carry On, Jeeves, Very Good, Jeeves, and Blandings Castle and Elsewhere could be removed from that section. Doing all this would remove 11 duplicate links. Does anyone think it would confuse things too much to pare down the infobox this way, and if so are there any other ways we could reduce the number of duplicate links in this navbox or otherwise improve it as a navigational tool?

Looking at the navbox again, I noticed that there are also red links and redirects, and other duplicate links. These should all be avoided in navboxes according to WP:NAV. If there are no objections, I can remove the red links, redirects and other duplicate links (this would mean breaking up the Psmith section, which might be all right since Psmith is not more notable than other Wodehouse characters like Uncle Fred, and Wodehouse's Bibliography page already shows which books are Psmith books). Any thoughts? Miles26 (talk) 03:22, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

Redlinks and redirects are fine if they complete a manageable set, of articles that should be written: in most situations its better to leave those in place for folks to find them. Sadads (talk) 02:18, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
Okay, I'll leave the redlinks and redirects alone then. It looks like there are no objections to deleting the duplicate links though, so I'll go ahead and clean those up. I'll also take out some of the short story links to make the template more consistent, but those can be added back if anyone thinks they should be. Miles26 (talk) 19:59, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
