Request[edit]

@Redrose64: Would you mind taking a look at my recent changes to the sandbox? I can't figure out why it's not displaying MMA -> WNBA in the banner. Any input is appreciated. Thanks! Hmlarson (talk) 22:13, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

If you look at the documentation for {{WPBannerMeta/hooks/taskforces}} (and {{WPBannerMeta/hooks/tfnested}}) you will see that the numbers go up to 10; it does state "the value of n is an integer between 1 and 10". However, both templates may be used multiple times without theoretical limit (the record is held, I believe, by {{WikiProject United States}} which has eleven sets of up to ten). --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 19:17, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
Thank you Redrose64. Good to know for future use + appreciate you updating the sandbox. I believe the sandbox is ready to be pushed live if everything looks ok. Hmlarson (talk) 21:14, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

WP Women category[edit]

@Headbomb: can you demonstrate where the Category:WikiProject Women articles should be added here? Hmlarson (talk) 03:27, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

I added:
Please confirm if anything else needed or if this code needs to be changed. Thank you. Hmlarson (talk) 05:13, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
@Hmlarson: I don't think that your proposal will work 100% of the time. Apart from using the entity ' instead of a straight apostrophe, you've placed the {{WPBannerMeta/hooks/cats}} template into the |HOOK_NESTED= parameter, so it won't trigger when {{WikiProject banner shell}} is not being used. Also, there is no need to drop code blobs into the talk page if the sandbox is being used properly. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 08:14, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
Thanks @Redrose64: Are you saying to change the ' to a straight apostrophe? I included {{WPBannerMeta/hooks/cats}} at the end after {{WPBannerMeta/hooks/taskforces ... where should it be moved to? Good thing the sandbox is for testing. Hmlarson (talk) 14:17, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
You didn't put it after the {{WPBannerMeta/hooks/taskforces}}, i.e. in the |HOOK_TF= parameter; you put it after the {{WPBannerMeta/hooks/tfnested}}, in the |HOOK_NESTED= parameter. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 22:32, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
@Redrose64: I've made the change + tested. Can you take a look? Hmlarson (talk) 05:57, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

@Koavf: - I see you have template editing rights. Is this something you might assist with for this template as well as Template: WikiProject Women writers/sandbox? I have added the Category:WikiProject Women articles category so that articles tagged with these projects will appear in the article alerts for WP:WOMEN. Thank you.

The code looks fine; but are WikiProject Women happy for Category:WikiProject Women articles to suddenly receive hundreds of extra pages? Is there a discussion somewhere that shows that they are at least aware of this proposal? IIRC there were recent disagreements about the addition of the main WikiProject Women template to talk pages that were already bearing the women's sports/writers/etc. templates. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 19:09, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
Yes, it's here: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Women/Archive 10#Adding women athletes to article alerts for WP:Women. See also Template talk:WikiProject Women writers. Hmlarson (talk) 19:16, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
OK,  Done --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:21, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
