Help with Template:Wikipedia rank by size/WP[edit]

This looks fairly simple but my script skills here are minimal. This template requires an optional {{{2}}}}. The second argument is not always given, it is optional. The second argument was recently added to the canonical Template:Wikipedia rank by size and this template variation would detect and pass through. -- GreenC 14:51, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Test data:

  • {{Wikipedia rank by size|2|wikiquote}} -> it
  • {{Wikipedia rank by size/WP|2|wikiquote}} -> Italian

They should both be Italy ("it" and "Italy" respective). Since the /WP version is not seeing the "wikiquote" second argument, the main template defaults to another project and returns "Cebuano". -- GreenC 14:53, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Actually it requires a third optional argument as well. So one required argument and two optional arguments. -- GreenC 14:24, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
Done. Johnuniq (talk) 07:16, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

GDP inflation templates ?[edit]

Hello, according to Template:Inflation, "for inflating capital expenses, government expenses, or the personal wealth and expenditure of the rich, the US-GDP or UK-GDP indexes should be used". Is it possible to create such templates ? It would be useful for all such data (I would use it for gov agency budgets or prices of military aircraft). Thanks in advance, Rob1bureau (talk) 17:32, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Template:Expand language[edit]

I think this request may be an easy one... Right now the link for corresponding article has a switch so that it calls Wikidata information where the article is not specified. I would like the same behavior to happen for the creation of the machine translation link at Can someone help with this? Basically it is just using the same approach from the "corresponding article" link elsewhere in the template, but it has been so long since I worked with parser code that I don't want to mess it up. Thanks! Calliopejen1 (talk) 18:39, 15 September 2020 (UTC)

If you move this to Template talk on that page, specify a bit more what you want, and ping me from there, I can probably do this for you. Mathglot (talk) 00:52, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

"R from tour" template[edit]

I wish to request the creation of an "R from tour" template, to be used on redirect pages for upcoming tours. When searching for this template, I was surprised to find no such one existed. If this template is created, any pages in Category:Upcoming concert tours should include it; I will endeavour to do this, but I would greatly appreciate any assistance.

(Note: Please ping me when you reply)

To output text on to wikipedia as if it were in the source editor, we have the templates {{temp}}, {{elc}} and {{c}}. However, we do not have a template for displaying text between <! -- and -- > tags without spacing it out, as I just did. The AsC (As Comment) template should display text between those tags, without spacing. If this is impossible or if this already exists, then many apologies for wasting your time.

Opalzukor, sounds like you're looking for Template:Example HTML comment. —⁠andrybak (talk) 04:57, 3 October 2020 (UTC)
@Andrybak: Thanks a ton! Opalzukor (talk) 06:54, 3 October 2020 (UTC)

Cabinet Templates[edit]

To have several templates linking to other members of a certain cabinet. Example: Charles Robertson on the Norwegian Wikipedia has a template at the bottom linking to other members of Lykke's Cabinet.

Sahaib3005, are you interested in templates for Cabinet of Norway in particular? There is Category:Cabinet templates, which has a lot of cabinet templates. —⁠andrybak (talk) 16:32, 30 October 2020 (UTC)
