TFD[edit]

{{editprotected}} Need to add TFD template. Axem Titanium (talk) 05:11, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Done. — RockMFR 12:04, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Request

Add a period at end of the list, so that is creates a complete sentence. The proper place is right before the #16 parameter:

}}.{{#if:{{{16|}}}
Reason

Hatnote templates should end with a period per WP:Hatnote#format. This template, together with {{see also}}, are the only ones missing the period. See also {{hatnote templates documentation}}. - DePiep (talk) 12:26, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

Done -- DQ (t) (e) 13:16, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
I'd like this last edit reverted for consistency with {{main}}, {{see}}, {{further}} and {{See also}} which has not been changed. {{See also2}} is not primarily used as a hatnote, rather it's used at the beginning of sections like {{main}}. --Pnm (talk) 05:37, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
Done} After reviewing the templates, there appear to be two types. The first kind outputs a complete sentence; all of these appear to end in a period. The second kind, of which this is one, outputs a label followed by a list of links; none of these end in a period. This seems to need more discussion, and should be applied to all or none.

Problems with Template:Section link fixed; could be put in documentation[edit]

(Original title: §§ & other difficulties when used with Template:Section link.)

See https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style/Lists&diff=748184179&oldid=746946461 for how I fixed an error but had to leave it looking a little clunky. I did not try fixing it with {{!}} or whatever replaces a pipe in such templates. I ran out of oomph.

Previous rendered formatting was:

See also: Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not §§ Wikipedia is not a directory​ and Wikipedia is not indiscriminate

My edit summary is:

Corrected the Template:See also2/Template:Section link error that generated §§. However, it's a little clunky that it has to link to the full title & section twice for the same page. Pipe magic may fix?

Current formatting (without bothering to re-create the links on this page that it has on the other) is:

See also: Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not § Wikipedia is not a directory and Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not § Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information

Better formatting would be IMO:

See also: Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not § Wikipedia is not a directory and § Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information

I'm mainly putting this here in case someone wants to try to get better formatting out of it. ... D'OH! I just got the formatting I wanted by using |nopage=y in the second use of Section link.

Final wikitext that got the rendered formatting I wanted is:

{{See also2 |{{section link |Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not |Wikipedia is not a directory}} |{{section link |Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not |Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information |nopage=y}}}}

Now, I am leaving this here in case someone would like to update the documentation to include how to do this. I probably, as usual, will not make it back here myself, although this time I'll try harder. Also, sorry I can't rewrite this due to real-life limitations.
