Help with Template:Birdsong[edit]

Hey WOSlinker. You did some code tidying at {{Birdsong}} back in 2014. I imported that template from fr:Modèle:Chants d'oiseaux and I finally got around to cleaning up its documentation and testing it today. It's displaying fine when its basic output is used, but the alignment goes all out of wack when you include a link to a Commons audio file. You can see this by looking at the current documentation, where the example use of a link to a Commons file (for the Canada Goose) results in a very ugly alignment. Here's the thing though: the same example use at the documentation at the French version of the template, of the same file, displays fine. I checked whether your edits might have caused the alignment issue (just chasing down the possibilities) and they did not. Since you edited it though, and in a manner way over my head, indicating your technical know how, I thought I might ask you to take a look and see what I did wrong/how it can be fixed. Thanks--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 19:01, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

I've had a look but haven't worked it out yet. I'll keep looking though. You may also want to ask on Wikipedia:Village pump (technical) as well. -- WOSlinker (talk) 22:18, 25 February 2017 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) I didn't see a display difference between the French and English versions, but I did see the sound player overlapping the text above it. I have tried to fix this by giving the text more space. Does it look better to you, Fuhghettaboutit? – Jonesey95 (talk) 23:21, 25 February 2017 (UTC)
Thank you both for looking. @Jonesey95: Hmm, maybe it depends on browser. In Firefox, on a mac, the display of the example use of the same commons file in the template looks (still) like this: File:Broken birdsong display.png.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 13:29, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
Strange. I use Firefox 48.0.2 for Mac and everything stays inside the box for me. I do notice that the sound player starts loading as a dark gray box and then is replaced with a light gray box. There is some screwiness in how that thing works, I think. You might ask at VPT. – Jonesey95 (talk) 14:04, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

{{Infobox station}}[edit]

Hi, as you are removing some of the old coordinate parameters from the template may be you could also remove the associated |iso_region=. Thanks. Keith D (talk) 13:57, 2 March 2017 (UTC)
