Frietjes tip[edit]

  • fixed it. there was an unclosed comment in the code. I found it by copying the template to the sandbox, and replacing all "{#" with "{safesubst:#", then looking at the preview of a substituted version, which showed the problem pretty clearly. my other method of debugging is to just start substituting the template in one of my own personal sandboxes until I see the problem. I use a regexp search/replace javascript tool for automating the "replace all" stuff.

Editing habits[edit]

  • Removing underscores from filenames (to aid linewrapping)
  • Headings
== Main heading within article ==
{{main|...}}  <!--{{main/seealso/futher}}s first-->
[[File:...]]  <!--then images-->
              <!--then single blankline-->
Article text continues...
===Subheading=== / ====Subsubheading====
{{main|...}}  <!--as above,-->
[[File:...]]  <!--except no blankline-->
Article text continues without blank line above...
  • {{vlist}} for lists presented as a column (without bullets).
  • {{hlist}} for lists presented as strings (separated by dots).
  • {{small}} rather than <small>.
