Cite fixes[edit]

I see you have been fixing book citations that use the deprecated "coauthors" parameter, replacing it by "last4", "first4", "last5" etc. That is good, but be aware that it messes up citations that use the form {{sfn|last1|last2|last3|2001|p=123}}. They provide a link to the source description. If you check Peter M. Arthur, for example, you will see that the citations provide links to the sources. But some of those links no longer work. The fix is, when you add "last4" to a source description, change any "sfn" citations to {{sfn|last1|last2|last3|last4|2001|p=123}}. See this change to Arthur Dallidet for an example. Obscure, eh?

  • That fixed it - and I found and fixed another one that was there all along! I don't think many editors use this style of citation, but some do, and to me it gives a fairly professional appearance. What you are doing is very useful. Thanks a lot, Aymatth2 (talk) 16:18, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Thanks for catching this; I appreciate it, and I'm really glad you saw it before I did too many more pages without checking. There are only a few others affected, and I'm fixing them now. Thanks again. Suelru (talk) 16:29, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
  • There is a tool at User:Ucucha/HarvErrors that makes any problems jump out. I think it is useful. You might want to install it... Aymatth2 (talk) 16:39, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Ah, thanks, that's very useful. Suelru (talk) 17:34, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

Editions of Burghauser[edit]

Hello Suelru, this is Marlindale. I see that in the Dvoṝák article you have been changing the editions from older to newer ones.Of course it would have been preferable to use newer editions, but I got the information from the editions I cited. The page numbers will not be correct now. I don't have the technical knowledge to revert all those changes. Could you please do so? Thank you very much in advance. Best wishes.

Hi Marlindale. Thanks for pointing that out. I was try to get the links in the short citations to work properly, but obviously I just made things worse. I think I've fixed them all now—let me know if you catch any more. I've also changed the main date in the bibliography entry for the Burghauser catalogues to 1960 (the older edition), with 1996 listed as an alternative, partly to help with the short citations, and partly to make it a bit clearer which edition is meant. Let me know if that's made the citation incorrect in any way. Thanks again. Suelru (talk) 14:10, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi again Suelru, thanks for your work. As I said on the Talk page of the article, I mainly used and cited the 1966 edition. For the time being I don't have more suggestions. Marlindale (talk) 21:32, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

OK, thanks. It seems another editor has been using the 1960 edition, so there are some of each, but the dates should match what was in your last edit from August now. Suelru (talk) 00:08, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

  • I have figured out, it is because of a dash at the end. --Tito Dutta (talk) 18:53, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
