This template will be re-written as a Lua module[edit]

{{World topic}}, as used in World, links to dab page Palestine rather than article State of Palestine. Changing Module:World topic to Palestine = {"State of Palestine"}, would fix it but remove Music of Palestine from {{Music topics}}. I could add a redirect from Music of State of Palestine but we wouldn't want that linked from articles like History of music in the biblical period and other topics will be similarly affected. Suggestions please! Certes (talk) 14:28, 28 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Well, yes. The first thing Music of Palestine brought to my mind was West–Eastern Divan Orchestra; definitely post-biblical. Narky Blert (talk) 14:55, 28 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dealing with spelling variations[edit]

For the use of this template at Labor_rights#External_links, we're running into issues, because it's missing articles like Labour rights in New Zealand, which uses the British spelling. Could we make this template more flexible so that it can handle this (or, if that flexibility already exists somehow, document it)? {{u|Sdkb}}talk 23:34, 29 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hmm, creating a redirect seems to have fixed the issue for New Zealand, but it'd still be nice to deal with this in case there are other country pages (now or in the future) with this issue. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 23:38, 29 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Redirects seem as good a place as any to record that information about labor is filed under "labour", and they also have the usual other benefits. Certes (talk) 00:43, 30 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]


The entry for Libya links to Parliament of Libya, a disambiguation page. It should link to House of Representatives (Libya), the country's current legislature. —ShelfSkewed Talk 14:40, 17 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

noredlinks not suppressing redlinks[edit]

The world topic of 'banking' has |noredlinks=yes passed in, but shows a redlink for Banking in the World. Banking in the United States#Further reading is where I noticed this. SWinxy (talk) 23:45, 21 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
