Slight unexpected behavior in empty / ignored text cases[edit]

I'm playing around with useful test cases for CS1 (because our current test case module has too many cases and doesn't explore all of the code paths systematically). I usurped what was the sandbox module at Module:Citation/CS1/testcases2. You can see the test cases there and the results on the talk page.

You'll note the two comments of puzzlement on the test case page.

Any thoughts? Worth solving? --Izno (talk) 01:34, 11 March 2019 (UTC)

line 3481 of the live module:
z.message_tail = {};
so the table that had all of the accumulated error messages is not empty. I did not write this particular bit of code but I think that I agree with it; the essentials are missing so the empty citation message should be sufficient.

Re: your edit: Actually, cs1|2 does find unrecognized_thing but, because unrecognized_thing is not valid, nothing gets rendered for it (error messages have not yet been rendered at line 3481) so the rendering at that point is an empty citation and the error message for unrecognized_thing was in z.message_tail until line 3481 where z.message_tail is blanked. This same holds true for |unrecognized_parameter=unrecognized. You can prove this to yourself:
  1. comment out line 3491 in Module:Citation/CS1/sandbox
  2. add Module talk:Citation/CS1/testcases2 to Preview page with this module text box
  3. click the adjacent Show preview button. All sorts of error messages.

Oh, I believe you; I was being short there. "catches it but dumps it later for the empty citation notice" works too. :^) --Izno (talk) 13:41, 11 March 2019 (UTC)

Relief Map of Far Eastern Federal District.jpg[edit]

Hi, Trappist the monk! In the article Balagan-Tas, I tried to add a relief map of the Russian Far East, where the location of the area would be shown in more detail. This map works in the Russian segment wikipedia, but for some reason it does not work in other segments. Maybe you have an idea how to make this card work?

Most likely this map will be needed for other articles in this region. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Modun (talkcontribs) 01:05, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

I think that what you want is this:
|map=Russia Far Eastern Federal District
and all other map parameters blank.
Maybe you have an idea how to make this card work? What is a card?

Yeah, thanks. I mean “map”, not card--Modun (talk) 11:50, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
