This template causes the TOC to be hidden – a bug?[edit]

The WP1.0 template has been included on Talk:George W. Bush, and somehow it's causing the TOC on that talk page to become hidden. It appears that a TOC is already in place within the WP1.0 template's collapsed box on that page, which suppresses the display of the normal TOC. --DachannienTalkContrib 17:42, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Problem was solved by changing the heading on the Talk:George W. Bush/Comments page to a non-heading boldface line, which prevented the Comments page from generating its own TOC. This seems like a bug with the WP1.0 template, but why are all of the comments on the Comments page for an article being transcluded into the Talk page itself, even within a collapsed box? Why not just put a link to the Comments page instead? --DachannienTalkContrib 17:51, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
It isn't a bug with the template; it is just a result of a table of contents being automatically generated before the first heading the parser reads. In this case, it was within the collapsed box inside the template. As for the second question - why not? Many other talk page tagging templates use this format. These comments are usually meant as "to do" lists, and if they're not visible, then they aren't very useful. Since it is within the collapsible box, they do not occupy much space. If it weren't inside the collapsible box, then a link would be provided, but since they are hidden by default, I personally think they should be transcluded.

I see what you're saying about possible beneficial uses for this, although in this particular case, the bulk of discussion takes place on the talk page itself, and a TOC is more important than transcluding a subpage that nobody looks at. Anyway, is there a way to prevent a TOC from appearing in the box (and to prevent it from parsing the transcluded page's headings) to prevent this problem from occurring? --DachannienTalkContrib 01:57, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
Why not just put __TOC__ in the talk page?
In my opinion, this is a bug in the design of the template, which needs to be fixed.
Until it is fixed, there should be a usage note instructing those who add {{WP1.0}} to also add
__TOC__ <!-- needed to unhide table of contents hidden by {{WP1.0}} -->
to the talk page, unless there is a better workaround. -- 23:36, 1 July 2007 (UTC)
I've removed this "feature" for now. I can't see the value in it, considering that the most common use for the template is on an article talk page - where all the comments are shown anyway. Chris Cunningham (not at work) - talk 14:28, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

v0.5 parameter?[edit]

This template is included on the talk page of Napoleon I of France, with a parameter v0.5=yes. This does not seem to be supported. I see two choices: adapt the template or add another template to Napoleon's talk page. Errabee 02:16, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

the template code has switches for the parameter, but these weren't in the docs, they seem to work so I have added them to the docs. LeeVJ (talk) 13:50, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
I have also reordered the templates switches so the 0.5 and 1.0 summaries behaved as 0.7 does ( i.e. showing before the collapsible section ) LeeVJ (talk) 15:02, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Template show feature not working[edit]

Please see for example talk:physics. When you click on show you get a really wide space for Additional information, and a really narrow column for the text. There are many other templates that do not work in the same manner, for example {{WikiProject Iran}} and {{WikiProject Central Asia}} on Talk:Persian Empire. 05:18, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

Category tag[edit]

The category tag just about gave me a heart attack today, when I saw "Geography Good Article" on Talk:United States. Initially just looked like something from Wikipedia:WikiProject Geography, prior to expanding the Article History template. There has to be a way to make it more clear that it's a Good Article prior to expanding the later part of the template. Can we link to the subsection on the Category word, and link to Wikipedia:Good articles on the words "Good Article"? MrZaiustalk 16:49, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

"Importance" doesn't show up anymore[edit]

After the conversion to WPBannerMeta, the "importance" rating doesn't show up in the template anymore. Can it be re-added by someone who understands this template's code? Thanks. Cheers, mc10 (t/c) 20:25, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Vital articles[edit]

What articles should receive the |va=yes parameter? Articles listed on the WP:Vital articles, or also those listed on WP:VA/E/subpages? – Ypnypn (talk) 14:10, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
