Template for excessive details[edit]

IAFD film ID -> IAFD film UUID[edit]

Old IAFD film IDs (d:Property:P5098) are used in this template: Template:IAFD movie. IAFD has recently started using UUIDs for films. The old links still work. However, the old IDs are no longer visible on the website. As of today, the UUID can be retrieved from Wikidata: d:Property:P12654. All Wikidata items with an old film ID now also have a new film UUID. It would be advisable to adapt your template. -- Reise Reise (talk) 16:48, 21 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Text direction template[edit]

I need a template that can rearrange text from left-to-right to right-to-left and vice versa that can be used for scripts which were written in boustrophedon or otherwise had no specific writing directions. It should look similar to {{lang}}.

I haven't been able to find any already existing template with this function so far, so would it be feasible to create this? Antiquistik (talk) 00:06, 23 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Antiquistik: are you looking from something along the lines of {{rtl}} and {{ltr}}? LittlePuppers (talk) 01:41, 31 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Substitute page name in Template:Sfd-t[edit]

Please can Template:Sfd-t and Template:Sfr-t be amended to subst the full page name of the template as the section name for the discussion? At the moment, articles which transclude a stub showing these templates look for the article name as the section heading rather than the stub template name. Template:Template for discussion substitutes the page name correctly, but I don't understand the code well enough to copy it myself. – Fayenatic London 10:57, 3 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Should be fixed now, the pagename wasn't marked for recursive substitution. WelpThatWorked (talk) 20:18, 4 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

DJSI World Index[edit]

{{DJSI World}}

As per request above, would be similar to

{{AEX companies}}

But with companies in the DJSI World Index.

"Fictional characters with..." notices[edit]

Category:Fictional characters with superhuman strength, Category:Fictional characters with accelerated healing and other categories have the "Must be a defining trait" box on top. I'd like them all to be consolidated into a single template to allow them all to be edited at once. Air on White (talk) 00:09, 12 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Air on White: I created Template:Must be a defining trait. You can replace the box with the template. Please write template documentation if possible. Thanks. Jeeputer Talk 10:58, 12 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Shortcut for Interchange stations[edit]

We already have shortcuts for displaying rail station links among other related transport shortcuts, i.e. {{Stnlnk}} and {{Stn}}.

As there are some stations in the United Kingdom and elsewhere where the article title contains "Interchange" and not any form of "station", I would like to propose a new template with the same purpose: {{Intc}}.

I cannot create this template as this would end up being a highly visible template in an instant, and since I'm not a Template editor, I'd be locked out of my own creation at that point.

Two tarot templates[edit]

In Template talk:Card#Completeness, there was a request from User:Crissov back on April 15, 2011 to add more cards for the sake of completeness. Personally, I think it would be better to create two more templates: one for card game articles using images from commons:Category:Tarot nouveau - Grimaud - 1898, and one for divination articles using images from commons:Category:Rider-Waite tarot deck (Roses & Lilies). Of course, as an IP user, I don't have the authority to create new templates. (talk) 00:35, 25 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

One template should be fine too, and we could pass in an argument to specify which pattern to use (talk) 00:08, 27 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Remove artist name hidden autolink in Template:Infobox artwork[edit]

First raised this on the template's talk page to no avail. There were previous discussions (1, 2, 3, 4) that led to removing the link automatically added to the artist name parameter, but apparently it was replaced with a hidden autolink that has the same problems, e.g. linking to disambiguation pages or to the wrong person entirely. This came to my attention regarding Statue of Jackie Robinson (Wichita, Kansas) with its hidden link to the John Parsons disambiguation page where the non-notable artist isn't listed. Coincidentally, this also happens with Statue of Jackie Robinson (Jersey City) with its hidden link to Susan Wagner who isn't an artist. Can this autolinking be removed once and for all? -- Pemilligan (talk) 13:36, 30 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Settlements in Orkney[edit]

Would it be possible to accept this template Draft:Template:Orkney settlements? (talk) 16:47, 4 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Tennis record expansion[edit]

Need an update for Template:Tennis record. What you see there is a basic win–loss template to help new editors who always forget to use an ndash. If you look at the prior version it always included a win percentage to one decimal. No way around it that I can see. So it would only show 11–10 (52.4%). A lot of time this is placed in an infobox where we really don't need the percentage. What I would like is to be able to have {{tennis record|won=11|lost=10}} simply show 11–10, but have an additional parameter available like |pct=yes to show that percentage to one place so it would look like 11–10 (52.4%). This way the template could be more flexible. And place it in the /testcases so I could see how it would work. This original template never got approval from "WikiProject Tennis" to use in tennis infoboxes and other places and it needs to have that flexibility for multi-use. And while I can't for the life of me figure why we would ever want to fill the infobox with the "details=" section, that should probably also be included just as the old version had. I can update the documentation as needed since what is there now is actually out of date. Thanks. Fyunck(click) (talk) 08:49, 15 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
