A bug in the shell?[edit]

See Talk:Kuniyoshi Obara. The link to WikiProject Japan's "Education" task force is incorrect, although expanding it contains the correct link inside. Bug in the shell? Or something else? -- t numbermaniac c 07:40, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

It was an error in the WikiProject Japan's banner template. All fixed now. Huntster (t @ c) 07:44, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
That was superfast. Thanks! -- t numbermaniac c 07:47, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Please add icon for WikiProject, like in {{Article history}}. Rezonansowy (talkcontribs) 18:17, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Not done: please be more specific about what needs to be changed. Add it where? I suggest that (per WP:TESTCASES) you put your proposal into Template:WikiProjectBannerShell/sandbox, and demonstrate it at Template:WikiProjectBannerShell/testcases. --Redrose64 (talk) 20:18, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
Should work, please check the sandbox. --Rezonansowy (talkcontribs) 18:36, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
I don't agree with the addition. It will increase the length of the template in the pages. -- Magioladitis (talk) 22:11, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
@Rezonansowy: I notice that you have changed the <th>...</th> element to a <td>...</td> element, which changes the appearance (see testcases). Why is this necessary? --Redrose64 (talk) 23:33, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
Because without this it doesn't work properly, I've copied the code from {{Article history}}. Testcases look fine to me. --Rezonansowy (talkcontribs) 23:38, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
The testcases page has two main headings: those under Template:WikiProjectBannerShell/testcases#Testing sandbox version show your proposal, notice how "This template is of interest to the following WikiProjects:" and similar text is left aligned and normal weight; whereas those under Template:WikiProjectBannerShell/testcases#Testing main template show the current version - centred and boldface. --Redrose64 (talk) 01:36, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Not done: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit protected}} template. This looks like it might be a contentious change, so I'm deactivating the edit request. Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 10:53, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

I don't agree with it, Redrose64 as well. He/she didn't consider this as consensus-needed. --Rezonansowy (talkcontribs) 14:57, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
Not done: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit protected}} template. Not sure what you mean by "Redrose64 as well". Anyway, to clarify, I don't agree with the change that is currently sandboxed: (i) the <th>...</th> has become a <td>...</td> without adequate explanation; (ii) the image does make the whole box taller - in the case of the basic "No options" version, the height of the outer box (excluding the 4px margin top and bottom) has changed from 78px to 97px - a difference of 18px; (iii) something else that I've just noticed - in the case of "collapsed=yes" and "collapsed=yes & banner collapsed=no", the behaviour has changed - it's not collapsed any more, so the |collapsed=yes parameter is being ignored. --Redrose64 (talk) 15:16, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
@Redrose64: I'm not a technical expert, I just wanted to add icon, like in other boxes. If you think something doesn't work properly then feel free to fix it. --Rezonansowy (talkcontribs) 16:12, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
Also, why have you: (iv) added a |currentstatus= parameter; (v) added a |small= parameter; (vi) used the hidden caption "Good article"? I can't fix these things unless I know why you've added them. Claiming not to be a technical expert doesn't explain why you've made many more changes than the original request, which was to add one image. --Redrose64 (talk) 16:44, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
You're right, I've just copied the code, but I mean just an icon. I've removed this param. Now should be good. --Rezonansowy (talkcontribs) 16:51, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
OK, so you've fixed (iv) and (v) but: (i) and (vi) are still neither fixed nor explained; (iii) is not fixed; and (ii) is still unanswered. --Redrose64 (talk) 20:19, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
I give up, could you ask somebody to insert this icon with the right way. Apparently I'm not able to do it. See how it looks in {{Article history}}. --Rezonansowy (talkcontribs) 20:43, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
Redrose64? --Rezonansowy (talkcontribs) 16:18, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
Should work now. See testcases. --Rezonansowy (talkcontribs) 17:18, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
OK, Done --Redrose64 (talk) 16:28, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

Confusing article history[edit]

At talk:George Frideric Handel the article history is described but for a reason I don't understand the assessment summary page link is buried below 7 other banners, making it very hard to find. Is this a problem particular to the page or having to do with WikiProjectBannerShell or perhaps Template:Article history? Sparafucil (talk) 09:59, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

I think this is the correct behaviour. These comments pages were originally used for WikiProject assessments, so they are linked from the WikiProject banner shell. Actually we are supposed to be deleting these subpages, but this has not been done yet. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 10:12, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
The placement of the collapsible "Article milestones" at Talk:Johann Sebastian Bach seems far more correct to me. It's hard to see how Wikipedia:Discontinuation of comments subpages/Examples will handle large archives! Sparafucil (talk) 03:11, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Bug in WikiProjectBannerShell: does not pass living= to WikiProject Biography template when given blp=yes[edit]

This edit removed the page from Category:Biography articles without living parameter. The WikiProjectBannerShell was already given |blp=yes, but was not passing the |living=yes parameter to WikiProject Biography.

I don't know if this is fixable in the template or if some bot needs to mass-update talk pages using these templates. I suspect that many entries in that category's backlog could be easily removed. (talk) 06:09, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

There is no technical means (as far as I know) for the WPBS template to pass parameters to the other template, so yes, it is necessary to use both |blp=yes and |living=yes — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 10:27, 15 December 2014 (UTC)


Why does this template no longer collapse? DrKiernan (talk) 17:32, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

@DrKiernan: See Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)/Archive 137#Collapsing not working. --Redrose64 (talk) 23:04, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
