Barnstar for you![edit]

Need(s) proper infobox[edit]

I like the header ;)

Something from Lua[edit]

Hi! I posted at User talk:Mr. Stradivarius, but it looks, that Mr. Stradivarius won't respond. So maybe you could have a look:

I wanted to import the portal module to Latvian Wikipedia, but we have diffrent system, as we don't have very much portals and the syntax is a little bit different. I created such data page:

'Portal name' = 'parameter 1', 'parameter 2', 'parameter 3', 'parameter 4' (optionally)

If it would be template, then its code would be something like this (for each portal):

[[File:{{{parameter 3}}}|{{{parameter 4}}}]] [[Portāls:{{{parameter 2}}} portāls|{{{parameter 1}}}]]

And for inclusion in article I would write {{portal|<<here goes the portal name (from data module)>>}}.

So, how it looks to You? You can make any changes for the module @lv wiki, you won't ruin anything as it isn't used.

If the 'Portal name' would be case sensitive (it would be nice, if not)?--Edgars2007 (talk/contribs) 14:20, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Nomination for deletion of Template:Location map Kingdom of Hungary[edit]

From my talk page back in september.

Bugger bugger bugger, I saw a map in the transport museum in budapest we went the other week and it had the lat and long but in pretty much a mercator projection. My missus was more interested with the toy trains so I didn't get a chance to take the measures off it. If it's wrong (as it is) it should be deleted but I am still trying to get the measures right. The thing is it's specifically Kingdom of Hungary, but the more atlases (atli? :) I look at the more different lats and longs I get. And anything one does on Hungarian articles is rather contentious, so it is probably really better deleted. Because people whose great grandfathers were part of the Kingdom of Hungary will say no that's Croatia or Slovakia or Slovenia or Yugoslavia or Jugoslavia or The People's Republic of East Kebab. Since Hungarian politics is very contentious and goes on racist grounds in far more than would be allowed in where I come from, this is better off deleted. (Hint: say Treaty of Trianon to a Hungarian and await results.) Si Trew (talk) 09:36, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

I never did get round to this. I took the coords off of file at right, which is very high quality but seems to have an odd idea of where 0 longitude is (it suggests it is east of Paris, but that didn't seem to work). As you suggested, I tried to take well-known points at the edges of the map: Fiume, for example, at south-west. I took very good readings after printing out this map at A0 size and using ruler and compass, my trig is quite good, but I could never get it to fit. Si Trew (talk) 06:02, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
.Oh, Template:Location_map_Kingdom_of_Hungary/test might help you. You see, Fiume's in the right place but Budapest is a bit too far left and the rest are well out. Si Trew (talk) 06:09, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Template:Infobox men's college basketball team‎, etc.[edit]

Frietjes, here's a template merge I would support in a heartbeat: Template:Infobox men's college basketball team‎ and Template:Infobox women's college basketball team‎.

Have you ever contemplated a comprehensive merge of all the college sports team infobox templates? With a handful of options, I think all U.S. college sports could be accommodated and the team infoboxes would then have a uniform appearance across all sports. Just a thought . . . . Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 21:48, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

the first is already proposed here. I had thought about the second as well, but it will take more time to work out all the details, since there are differences in the post-season tournament section for various sports. Frietjes (talk) 22:19, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
I just posted a comment in support of the merge of men's and women's college basketball templates. That pending merge should be a no-brainer, and you are clearly already on top of the two minor issues to be addressed in the combined template.
The creation of a combined infobox template for all U.S. college sports teams would require a lot of work and the inclusion of several options, but the core information to be included is common to all. Differences in NCAA playoff structure, etc., could be accommodated by options to be toggled as needed. The payoff would be worth the effort. Not only should these infoboxes have a common appearance within a given sport, the teams affiliated with a given university should also have a common appearance and graphics style, and that can only be accomplished by a common template across all college sports teams. I think you would find the college football, basketball and baseball sports projects to be supportive, and the other college sports do not have active/vocal WikiProjects and tend to follow the lead of the football, basketball and baseball projects. I would be grateful for your help in making this happen, but I also understand that you have numerous pending template projects already. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 11:14, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Frietjes, these example "college stripe" color graphics [20] are exactly the direction in which I would like to go with a standardized infobox for all college sports -- with appropriate options and switches for all NCAA sports teams. It may be that Infobox college football team remains outside such a uniform infobox scheme because of its differences, but we could at least conform its graphics to those of a uniform template used by the other 20-odd NCAA sports. What's your reaction to these ideas, in light of what we have previously discussed above? Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 14:45, 1 April 2015 (UTC)


As you are an awesome editor, I have nominated you for a Wikipedia T-shirt. Thanks for all your work on Wikipedia and especially on templates! The Banner talk 19:00, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

thank you. Frietjes (talk) 15:55, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Infobox tennis biography – Hall of Fame[edit]

Hi Frietjes, the International tennis HoF has launched a new website and it now again has a standard url for the inductees:<player id> Can you please update the {{Infobox tennis biography}} template to reflect this? I have already updated {{Tennishof}}. Thx.--Wolbo (talk) 14:25, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Wolbo, fixed. Frietjes (talk) 14:35, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
Thx! --Wolbo (talk) 14:21, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
Hi, can you tell me where I can find the color settings for the section headers in {{Infobox tennis biography}}? I would like to experiment in a sandbox (if I can figure out how to do that) with colors or other formatting options to see if we can better distinguish between the different section levels of the infobox but can't find where it generates the color. --Wolbo (talk) 01:50, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
Wolbo, template is using colours set by MediaWiki:Common.css. I have changed the sandbox template to use the colour specified in |headerstyle=. Frietjes (talk) 12:35, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

CHECKWIKI June lists are available[edit]

-- Magioladitis (talk) 23:48, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

Empty tags is very interesting because it contains empty div tags to force an infobox work with a list. -- Magioladitis (talk) 11:52, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

College color module[edit]

F, what does this edit do: [21]? Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:42, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

Dirtlawyer1 and Joeykai, I reverted that change since the better solution is more complicated. you can see the the stripe, header1, and header2 for all the teams in User:Frietjes/ncaa. basically, for header1, it uses color1 for the background and then automatically selects either white or black for the font color. for header2, it uses color3 for the background and then automatically selects either white or black for the font color. if color3 is not defined, header2 will use color2 instead. if the resulting background color is very close to white, header2 will use color1 for the background instead. let me know if you see any problems. at some point, I would like to update {{CollegePrimaryStyle}} and {{CollegeSecondaryStyle}} so that we don't need to manually override the border and font color. of course, the best option may be to eventually get rid of all this automatic font selection and just have 5 colors in for each team in the data table (primary background, primary font, secondary background, secondary font, border color), but I don't really have time to work on that right now. Frietjes (talk) 13:30, 22 May 2015 (UTC)


Hi, I've just created Category:Colombia location map templates and realised that Spanish wikipedia and indeed half a dozen other wikis have the templates created by department and city. I was wondering if you, WOSlinker or whoever could find a straightforward way to transfer all of these.There's a fair few others too, Panama, even Venezuela has a few provincial maps. Very useful for things like landmarks.♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:34, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

@Dr. Blofeld: I've imported them. You should move them to a better name though. Did you want the subcategories doing as well? -- WOSlinker (talk) 14:02, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, All of them yup. For Colombia Category:Colombia department location map templates and Category:Colombia city location map templates will be needed, I'm sure you can figure out which corresponds to which!♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:06, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
Panama maps are here. -- WOSlinker (talk) 14:12, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
@WOSlinker:. Thanks, I'll gradually sort out the names. As we're at it you may as well ransack the sub categories of this and see that they match up with English. Argentina, Costa Rica, Mexico etc all seem to have plenty of them, I,m not sure what has been transferred yet, but if you could check and import what is missing I'll sort out the names and order. Some have been started for Argentina but still lots missing.♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:37, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
Colombia and Panama now all done thanks. Give me a bell when you can transfer Argentina, Costa Rica etc.♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:18, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

In the Wetlands of Bogota article can somebody copy the map and labels from here and add an infobox with the map and labels (without "Humedal de" in it")?♦ Dr. Blofeld 10:40, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Ponnur mandal[edit]

@Frietjes:There is only abbreviation to be mentioned in Ponnur mandal page, but for pages like Tadepalle_mandal,_Guntur_district#Towns_and_villages. So, I have maintained equality in all articles.--Vin09 (talk) 14:21, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

okay. Frietjes (talk) 16:54, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

Coding issue[edit]

I came across an edit you performed on 15:51, 21 May 2012 for the article Operation Crossroads that has produced an anomaly. The anomaly is a citation in the "Notes" section that displays twice when the citation is used only once in the article. See note 1 and note 103. You will notice note 1 links to nothing, but note 103 works as expected. I couldn't figure out how to fix it. I was hoping you would have better luck. Mitchumch (talk) 05:28, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Mitchumch, very strange. I was able to fix it by switching the gallery template to a gallery tag. I know that we used to preprocess args for modules like infobox, but that's no longer necessary after changes to the backend software (see this thread). I don't know if this is related. I will ping Jackmcbarn and Mr. Stradivarius who may know more. for anyone unclear about the bug, check reference [1] and reference [103] in this version. Frietjes (talk) 13:19, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
okay, it's definitely a bug in template:gallery, starting a thread at Template_talk:Gallery. Frietjes (talk) 13:22, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Unclosed center tags[edit]

Please remove center tags in Blackadder. This will help me understand of how to replace this tags with wikitable syntax. -- Magioladitis (talk) 07:32, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

And this one has more than 600 unclosed tags: List of female tennis players. -- Magioladitis (talk) 08:18, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Magioladitis, my strategy for center tags (or really any alignment) inside of tables is as follows: (1) determine the most common cell alignment used in the table, for example are the majority of the cells center aligned, left aligned, or right aligned. note that table headers are typically aligned center by default. (2) whatever is the most common, add that style statement to the top of the table. this will be the default (3a) add per-cell style statements to cells with alignment that is different from the majority. (3b) use {{left}} / {{right}} / {{center}} instead of cell style statements. sometimes this makes for shorter/more readable code. Frietjes (talk) 13:02, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
That adds up to 577 additional elements, which have also got no effect on mobile (Minerva). It would be better to create a new template for centring cell text, in the fashion of {{Yes}}. Alakzi (talk) 13:18, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
that's what {{left}} and {{right}} do with no input args. we could make {{center}} do the same now that the tracking category is basically empty. Frietjes (talk) 12:50, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

Invitation to the discussion on versions of Template:History of Iran.[edit]

Why are you amending the layout of {{Infobox football biography}} against the infobox documentation? GiantSnowman 16:18, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

User:GiantSnowman, per your comments: "Personally I prefer No. 3, but it's all good in the hood - it doesn't affect how you read the page one iota." it seems you have changed your mind and now you actually do have a strong opinion? Frietjes (talk) 16:42, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
Er yes I have changed my mind in 4 years...the infobox documentation is there for a reason. GiantSnowman 16:46, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

A syntax chaos[edit]

Republican Party presidential candidates, 2016 now contains big, small and center tags. It's a chaos. Please apply your magic. -- Magioladitis (talk) 00:54, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

I certainly need your help with 25th Parliament of Turkey. 225 template problems make it impossible to process via automated tools. -- Magioladitis (talk) 08:57, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

I need your help here too: 2014 International Champions Cup. A previous attempt of Bgwhite to fix was reverted. -- Magioladitis (talk) 12:57, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

Infobox election[edit]

Any idea why the infobox at Brazilian presidential election, 2010 is displaying three columns when there are only two candidates? Seems to be working fine at Brazilian presidential election, 2014 and I can't tell the difference. Cheers, Number 57 18:11, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

(Talk page stalker) Hi User:Number 57, I believe that the number of columns is correct, but that the images have a very tall aspect ratio. I changed them to other images, and it seems fine to me. Thanks! Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 21:29, 13 June 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. However, shouldn't the columns be centre-aligning? Presumably the large map at the bottom was making the infobox wider than the candidate pics. Number 57 22:14, 13 June 2015 (UTC)
Number 57 and Plastikspork, looks like you have it figured it. yes, it's due to the mismatch in the widths of the map and candidate images. if you make the map more narrow, or the candidate pictures wider, things should line up better. Frietjes (talk) 12:48, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

Missed case in findargdups[edit]

Your findargdups script doesn't find the following: {{echo|1=foo|[]}}. Can this be fixed? Jackmcbarn (talk) 01:40, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Jackmcbarn, fixed. Frietjes (talk) 12:34, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Infobox military conflict[edit]

It still needs these. -- Magioladitis (talk) 07:40, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Magioladitis, fixed. Frietjes (talk) 12:34, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. Magioladitis (talk) 11:40, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

More requests[edit]

Can you please check Wikipedia:CHECKWIKI/085 dump whether they are more infoboxes that need to be updated before I start removing empty span/div tags? -- Magioladitis (talk) 12:50, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Magioladitis, can you scan the articles and find the name of the template surrounding the empty tags? I can certainly go through them all, but it would take me as much time to check them as it would take me to fix them. as a general rule, if it uses {{infobox}} it should be fine, if it doesn't it may or may not be fine. Frietjes (talk) 12:53, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

This link shows the string that triggers the alert. -- Magioladitis (talk) 12:55, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Magioladitis, mostly fixed. I thought we fixed the episode list template, but maybe not. Frietjes (talk) 13:30, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. Many empty span tags come from Visual Editor. I reported the bug but there is no solution... yet. -- Magioladitis (talk) 13:56, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Due to Bgwhite's health problems, we have a backlog with Table without correct end if you could help me. -- Magioladitis (talk) 22:16, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Magioladitis, fixed some, some were fixed by others. could you recheck the list? Frietjes (talk) 20:09, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
Rechecked. 5 left. -- Magioladitis (talk) 21:35, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
Magioladitis, are you sure? if I do a search in Reformed Political Party for {| and |} I find exactly two of each, so it's not clear why that one is on the list of 5. Frietjes (talk) 23:56, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
Hm.. you are right. WPCleaner has a bug and does not remove a page from a any list if the page has at least one CHECKWIKI error. I had to check manually the last 5. -- Magioladitis (talk) 04:29, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
Magioladitis, can you explain the problem, just to be sure where to look... --NicoV (Talk on frwiki) 09:42, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Backlog on tables eliminated. Templates without correct end now has more than 100 pages. I need backup. -- Magioladitis (talk) 09:53, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Magioladitis, should be mostly done. would be useful to recheck. Frietjes (talk) 19:02, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

NicoV we need you help to recheck #43. -- Magioladitis (talk) 20:01, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Magioladitis I just checked #43: out of 41 articles, 40 were marked as fixed, only 2015 National Rugby Championship is still reported because still missing a few closing brackets. Only thing I don't understand is why there were still 41 articles in the list, I thought I ran the tool on each list before. --NicoV (Talk on frwiki) 20:04, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
NicoV, looks like Magioladitis fix the last one here. Frietjes (talk) 20:38, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Reference tags without correct match went up to 200 pages. -- Magioladitis (talk) 22:30, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Magioladitis, you can recheck this one now. Frietjes (talk) 00:20, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

All done. Template without correct beginning. You involvement is the only way to reduce backlog after Bgwhite's (temporary) absence. -- Magioladitis (talk) 11:40, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

Magioladitis, you can recheck this one now. Frietjes (talk) 15:33, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

All done. Square brackets without correct end. 50 pages here. Last error with backlog. -- Magioladitis (talk) 15:51, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

Library systems and lists of libraries[edit]

Hi! I took a look at this removal of the library listing. Even though Wikipedia has WP:NOTYELLOW, when people see a library system article they expect to see a list of libraries. I think this kind of "YELLOW" is good for Wikipedia. Not listing it leaves out important information for the reader. I do support removing the external links in the article space (they can be in the citations, though) WhisperToMe (talk) 12:25, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Module:Infobox cyclist tracking[edit]

Hi @Frietjes: I work on the Franch Wikipedia, and more on Wikimedia Commons to illustrate cyclists. I see you create Module:Infobox cyclist tracking. Did you know that it is possible to use datas from Wikidata ? I prepared Module:Infobox/Cycliste. It doesn't applicate on the French Wikipedia because we don't already have the arbitrary access.

For cycling races, Module:Infobox/Descriptif course cycliste is working, but it lacks few properties (example : Tour du Limbourg 2015). Is it possible you start to adapt Template:Infobox cycling race report ? New properties about classification should arrive during the summer. That will permit we will start to work together English/French on Wikidata, and be more efficient. (sorry for my bad English, but we are not good on other languages in France...) Jérémy-Günther-Heinz Jähnick (talk) 09:19, 19 June 2015 (UTC) PS : Module:Infobox cycling race report‎

Jérémy-Günther-Heinz Jähnick, the "Module:Infobox cyclist tracking" is used to find problems in places where template:Infobox cyclist is used. yes, I am aware that we can use data from wikidata (see, for example infobox anatomy). it would be interesting to add wikidata to template:infobox cyclist or template:infobox cycling race report, but we should have the discussion at template talk:infobox cyclist or template talk:infobox cycling race report or Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Cycling since there are going to be more editors interested in discussing it. I will start a discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Cycling. thank you. Frietjes (talk) 13:24, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
Thank you Frietjes. One of my project is to have more or less the same infoboxes in around twenty languages. Infoboxes are not again perfect, because it lacks some properties and the arbitrary access, but it is a good beginning. I ask to Mattsnow81 to translate the fields. Il already have a module for the cyclists, but it is not again possible to make a difference between pro and amateur teams. Jérémy-Günther-Heinz Jähnick (talk) 21:56, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Template:Infobox Grand Prix race report[edit]

Hi Frietjes. Thanks for your updates to Template:Infobox Grand Prix race report. I was wondering: would it be possible to make the labels left-aligned like they used to be? (see Template:Infobox Grand Prix race report/testcases). Thanks. DH85868993 (talk) 00:30, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

DH85868993, let me guess, you are using Internet Explorer? Frietjes (talk) 00:30, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
Yes, IE9 on Windows 7. DH85868993 (talk) 00:31, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
DH85868993, apparently, that's the only modern browser that doesn't left-align the labels by default. please let me know if this is still a problem after my last change. someone like User:Edokter could probably tell me why this hack is necessary. Frietjes (talk) 00:34, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
That's fixed it - thanks. DH85868993 (talk) 00:36, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
IE9 simply centre-aligns all <th>s in the browser stylesheet; they do not inherit the <table>'s alignment. It'd probably be a good idea to add this rule to Mediawiki:Common.css. Alakzi (talk) 03:04, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Module:Episode List[edit]

Hi, Frietjes. Would I be right in assuming that you are an editor for Module:Episode list? If so, I made a request some time ago at Template talk:Episode list (before moving it to Module talk:Episode list), about adding a parameter that gives a rowspan attribute to the EpisodeNumber variable (as shown in my sandbox), and even implemented it myself in the module's sandbox, but haven't heard back from any editors about it. Might I trouble you to take a look at it? Many thanks! Alex|The|Whovian 13:02, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Template:Infobox racing car/statstable[edit]

Hi Frietjes. The stats in {{Infobox racing car/statstable}} have become "un-centred" (I'm guessing due to the change discussed here). Are you able to re-centre them? Thanks. DH85868993 (talk) 10:54, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Thank you! DH85868993 (talk) 13:54, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Basketball colours[edit]

How to change the red colour in S.L. Benfica (basketball) players' infoboxes? I would like to use #EF0000 to match the colour in {{S.L. Benfica}}. SLBedit (talk) 05:29, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

SLBedit, updated here. Frietjes (talk) 13:26, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
Thank you. SLBedit (talk) 13:27, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Order field[edit]

Check this edit. I see two problems: |order= does not support bare filenames and needs a break tag to reach correct format. -- Magioladitis (talk) 09:46, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Magioladitis, |order= is for ordinals, like 1st, 2nd, 3rd when using autolinking for the |office=. there aren't supposed to be images there. if someone really wants an image in there, and doesn't need autolinking, then just put everything in |title=. Frietjes (talk) 13:21, 28 June 2015 (UTC)


Gooooooood Morning! How are you? Hope you had a great weekend! I've got an RfC going that hasn't generated much traffic. Wanted to see if you might have an opinion that you would care to share on the matter. See here. The question is regarding whether or not to include a long list of disbanded fire companies in the article about the Detroit Fire Department. Anyway, if you have any thoughts on the matter, please chime in! If not, please ignore this and have an awesome monday!

Latin kings of Alba Longa[edit]

The reason I undid your edit was because it was off center and I couldn't get it to say "Lineage of the Latin kings of Alba Longa". It insisted that the top read "Ancestors of Latin kings of Alba Longa", so I think the template you used is meant for individuals and not groups of people.

You're right about the family tree templates I don't know why they still keep the other one if that's the case. Sorry for being a bother :) Psychotic Spartan 123 22:03, 1 July 2015 (UTC)


If, in future, you list templates I created or worked on, I'd appreciate a note. I just wasted time looking for {{And list}}. All the best: Rich Farmbrough, 22:38, 1 July 2015 (UTC).


I see (with warm thanks) that you have streamlined my efforts at Shéhérazade (Ravel). I wonder if you might have time and inclination to look in and work the same wonders at Les nuits d'été, where I have just perpetrated a similarly unstreamlined format for the texts. If so I shall watch and learn. Tim riley talk 14:46, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Thank you! It was, in truth, a bit too quick for an aged numbskull to keep up with, but I'll study what you've done and, I hope, learn from it. I am much in your debt. Tim riley talk 15:06, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Template talk:Collapse top[edit]

I've edited the sandbox, commented and move the conversation down to the bottom of the talk page so others can see it more clearly. -- PBS (talk) 13:52, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
