Please tag this as a metadata template so its images don't appear in Mediaviewer. This post has some more background: Wikipedia talk:Media Viewer#Some images need to be excluded. Please set me straight if I got the wrong idea here. Oiyarbepsy (talk) 04:51, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

There is a choice instead of adding the metadata class to add the noviewer class directly to the image: [[File:Foo.jpg|class=noviewer]], which might be a better option. -- WOSlinker (talk) 00:30, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
If this has no downsides, it's just the kind of purely technical fix that shouldn't require a consensus. I don't fault Jack for rejecting what I proposed, since it had major problems I wasn't aware of. Oiyarbepsy (talk) 05:50, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

How putting image in the portal? → Template:Portal/Pictures/Iranian Azerbaijan ?--SaməkTalk 07:18, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

I have created a new portal. It is about the Latter Day Saint movement in General. I realize there is a Portal:Latter-day Saints already. However, per MOS:LDS the terms Latter-day (hyphenated, with lower-case "d"), refers specifically to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).

The term Latter Day Saint (non-hyphenated, with upper-case "d"), refers to The Latter Day Saint movement which is a collection of multiple independent Latter Day Saint sects (95 on that page alone). So Portal:Latter Day Saints will focus on all sects, not just the LDS Church.--- ARTEST4ECHO(Talk) 17:10, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Image function of Module:Portal

The image function of the module is supposed to give the filename, but a piped "border" is getting in the way. For example, I would like to use the module to generate a link to the image of Portal:Terrorism (which is File:National Park Service 9-11 Statue of Liberty and WTC fire.jpg), but when I type

[[:File:{{#invoke:Portal|image|Terrorism}}]]

I get the following: File:National Park Service 9-11 Statue of Liberty and WTC fire.jpg. That's because National Park Service 9-11 Statue of Liberty and WTC fire.jpg has the |border at the end of it, which should probably be trimmed. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 12:27, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

@MSGJ: The /image/* subpages currently use code like
return {
	["a-league"] = "Soccer ball.svg",
	["abu dhabi"] = "Flag of Abu Dhabi.svg|border",
	...
}
so the data for each portal consists of a single string containing both the image name and optional border. To exclude the "|border" part in the image function, the image name and border must be separated in the image lists. In my Lua sandbox I've added some test functions that use a subtable for each portal:
return {
	["a-league"] = {"Soccer ball.svg"},
	["abu dhabi"] = {"Flag of Abu Dhabi.svg",border=1},
	...
}
If this is used, the filename without "|border" can be retrieved using images[portal][1], and a flag variable for the border using images[portal]["border"]. The test version of the front-end function for the image name returns [[:File:{{#invoke:Sandbox/SiBr4|portalimage|Abu Dhabi}}]]File:Flag of Abu Dhabi.svg. If this change is a good idea, I can do some tests in the main Module:Portal/sandbox tomorrow. SiBr4 (talk) 22:15, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
The main sandbox version now supports both versions (test), so the image subpages can be updated without hurry if this gets implemented. I've added a border parameter to exclude the "|border" to the image function: {{#invoke:Portal/sandbox|image|Abu Dhabi|border=0}} → Flag of Abu Dhabi.svg. It is included by default for now to keep the border in templates using the function to actually show the image. (I'd like to ask someone better with Lua than I am to review my changes beforehand if they're moved live.) SiBr4 (talk) 21:41, 1 June 2015 (UTC)
@SiBr4: This is a good idea, and actually I would take it further, as I outlined last year. I think that as well as decoupling image names from borders, we need a way to find out which image is used by which portals, and a way to find out whether images belong to a portal or to a WikiProject (via {{WikiProject box}}), or both. Perhaps something like this:
return require('Module:Portal/image').processImageData{
	["aleague"] = {
		portal = "Portal:A-League",
		image = "Soccer ball.svg"
	},
	["abudhabi"] = {
		portal = "Portal:Abu Dhabi",
		wikiproject = "Wikipedia:WikiProject Abu Dhabi",
		image = "Flag of Abu Dhabi.svg",
		border = true
	},
	...
}
The processImageData function would convert project codes to lower case and remove whitespace and punctuation, then sort the data into three separate tables for indexing by code, page, and project type. This data would then be loaded by mw.loadData so it could be cached per-page. This structure would mean that WikiProjects would be stuck with the same image as portals, though. That's probably what they want in most cases, but I'm not sure that holds for all cases. It would also mean that WikiProjects would be stuck with the same aliases as portals, which may also not be ideal. Thoughts? — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 07:41, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
If I'm understanding it correctly, this processImageData will have to loop over the data on the subpages and create the three new tables one row at a time? If so, that would allow for the table keys in the data pages to correspond to the actual portal names (i.e. with normal capitalization/punctuation), since the processing function could change them to lowercased/stripped versions for the new tables.
Separate images for corresponding portals and projects should be easy by using separate table fields, e.g.
return require('Module:Portal/image').processImageData{
	["aleague"] = {
		portal = "Portal:A-League",
		image = "Soccer ball.svg" --used for both portal and project
	},
	["abudhabi"] = {
		portal = "Portal:Abu Dhabi",
		wikiproject = "Wikipedia:WikiProject Abu Dhabi",
		portalimage = "Flag of Abu Dhabi.svg", --used for portal
		wpimage = "Some other image.svg", --used for project
		border = true
	},
	...
}
and having them overwrite the generic image using data.portalimage or data.image in the implementing module. I know as little as you regarding whether or not it is needed, however. SiBr4 (talk) 20:01, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
@SiBr4: processImageData would loop over the data in a single subpage and create the three new tables one row at a time, yes. This sounds inefficient, but actually shouldn't be too bad, as internally Lua would only be creating pointers to the existing data tables rather than creating entirely new tables. About the portalimage and wpimage fields - thinking about it, it's probably not necessary. People seem to have managed just fine up to now, and I don't remember seeing any requests for it on this talk page. How about this as the data structure:
return require('Module:Portal/image').processImageData{
	["aleague"] = {
		links = {
			portal = "Portal:A-League",
		},
		image = "Soccer ball.svg",
	},
	["abudhabi"] = {
		links = {
			portal = "Portal:Abu Dhabi",
			wikiproject = "Wikipedia:WikiProject Abu Dhabi",
		},
		image = "Flag of Abu Dhabi.svg",
		border = true,
	},
	...
}
Putting the links in a separate links subtable should make it easy to add new page types if the need arises. If new link types are just added to the links table, you can use pairs(data.tags.abudhabi.links) and be sure that you are iterating over links, and not image names or other image properties that we might decide to add in the future. Also, seeing as this idea means that images no longer have to be associated with portals, how about using a new module name? I'm thinking Module:Image tags or Module:Image aliases. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 03:25, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
Was I right in thinking that the new function would allow the field names to be just "A-League" and "Abu Dhabi" on the data page, and to have the function convert the names to lowercase and remove whitespace for the new tables? That would make it possible to construct the portal and project links by prepending "Portal:" or "Wikipedia:WikiProject " to the field name, so the portal/wikiproject fields would only have to be used explicitly if the default link was incorrect. This way the nonexistence of a portal or project would need to be specified in a different way than just omitting the field, so it may not actually be better.
The current portal image data is spread over 27 subpages so changing an image would only put a fraction of all transclusions in the job queue (as explained in the leading comment at Module:Portal). Wouldn't server load be a problem if the new data woud be on a single page?
I agree with creating the modules at new titles, since the linking of images with WikiProjects means the image data are no longer specific to portals. Best may be to start working on a draft version of the new function, to have a more concrete proposal to discuss. SiBr4 (talk) 20:36, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Please consider replacing Tennis portal icon with orange version of same

Please consider making the following replacement at Module:Portal/images/t: ["tennis"] = "Tennis ball.svg",

to be replaced with

["tennis"] = "Tennis_ball-orange.svg",

Rationale: Newly installed masthead/logo for Wikipedia:WikiProject Tennis and Portal:Tennis make use of a Wikipedia logo ball motif that is orange colored. The present green ball clashes with as opposed to reinforces this suggestion when it appears in the wikiproject's infobox, below the masthead on the Wikiproject page. For all other uses color of the ball is immaterial; orange colored balls have been used in competition this past year. --Mareklug talk 15:45, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

@Mareklug: I think the orange image needs a bit more work. Without the shadow shading it looks more like a two-dimensional coloured circle rather than as a ball. It's also hard to see the seams, which are just about visible in the yellow image at this size. -- John of Reading (talk) 16:20, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
I will work on it now, albeit I am a newbie at gradient work. ;) --Mareklug talk 16:23, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
Will you take this one provisionally (third attempt, might not be visible due to cashing), @John of Reading:? I promise to work on the gradient some more and the seams. --Mareklug talk 16:37, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
That ought to be better, but I haven't managed to get the thumbnail regenerated. I won't install it until the servers have caught up. I'll also wait to see what Moxy says before installing it. -- John of Reading (talk) 17:02, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Is there a talk about this? Not sure having a basketball looking logo will help here. Is our article Tennis ball wrong about white and yellow?-- Moxy (talk) 16:53, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

As a matter of fact, tennis ball the article does mention orange balls. Please try to consider the rationale as stated above. --Mareklug talk 16:58, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
I see..it does say only yellow and white...but goes on to talk about other colours. I see you say the current ball is green ...I dont see green but yellow.... till not sure if orange is best seeing yellow is still used the most. - Moxy (talk) 17:08, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
