Template: Wide table[edit]

Hello, we already have Template:Wide image to add a scrollbar for wide images on smaller viewports.
As an analogue I'd like to suggest a "Template: Wide table". I have encountered such (Wiki-)tables in several articles already where they break the article's display on all but wide-screens by forcing the right margin further out. This table brought me here. (This is still a rather harmless sample; I've seen much wider tables.)
Please comment and tell me if this is technically feasible and generally desirable. --ΟΥΤΙΣ (talk) 23:18, 7 July 2021 (UTC) ΟΥΤΙΣ (talk) 23:18, 7 July 2021 (UTC)

Came across this issue myself earlier this month. Great news! It exists! Except it's called Template:Scrolling table instead. Cheers :) — Avelludo 03:18, 1 September 2021 (UTC)

Bug report: links within transl template[edit]

If I wikilink part of a word in any transl template, I can't stop wikilinking until the word ends or a non-ASCII character appears.

  • Trying to wikilink just the n gives: naïvité
  • Trying to wikilink just the ï gives: naïvité
  • Trying to wikilink just the i gives: naïvité
  • Trying to wikilink just the f gives: naïfs omit diaëreses

I'd appreciate a fix if anyone can readily manage it. Cross-posted to Template talk:Transl. HLHJ (talk) 17:18, 5 September 2021 (UTC)

Has nothing to do with {{tl|transl}.
Trying to wikilink just the n without the template gives naïvité.
Trying to wikilink just the ï without the template gives naïvité
Trying to wikilink just the i without the template gives naïvité
Trying to wikilink just the f without the template gives naïfs omit diaëreses
One workaround is to include <nowiki /> after the link, producing naïvité * Pppery * it has begun... 18:58, 5 September 2021 (UTC)
Thank you, * Pppery *; I really should have done better testing! HLHJ (talk) 05:16, 6 September 2021 (UTC)

Cite EU Judgement[edit]

There is a template called Cite EU law and several others. However the EU Law is also very dependant on Judgements made by the Court. these are cited differently within eurolex. If possible it would make it much easier to cite since now we are left with linking the source with an external URL as shown in article Commission v Italy (1972)

@Chefs-kiss can you list some specific examples and what format(s) you are expecting? It would definitely be a useful change. I would indeed find this useful, but don't know in depth for example whether historic inline references to ECJ rulings should be rewritten as CJEU rulings etc.. I took one course in EU law and am far from an expert on citation styles. We could also make a talk page discussion in Wikipedia:WikiProject Law ~ 🦝 Shushugah (he/him • talk) 08:00, 11 November 2021 (UTC)
@ Shushugah Hey so the thing I'm talking about is in the curia website.

Infobox Minecraft server[edit]

With the rise of popular Minecraft servers like the Dream SMP, I think there should be a template for servers like this. In the meantime, I will be copying and pasting {{infobox software}} from Hypixel's article. L33tm4n (talk) 21:38, 11 September 2021 (UTC)

Template:Drug links[edit]

After discussion at WikiProject Medicine and Template talk:Drug links, there is support for a template that would host external links currently held in {{Infobox drug}}. The new template Template:Drug links would be identical in format to {{Medical resources}} except with the fields and headings at User:Ajpolino/sandbox3. The only problem is... well I have no idea how template syntax works, and all the curly brackets and special keywords make my head hurt. Any chance someone would be interested in putting this template together? Your work would appear on many highly viewed drug articles, and just as important, you'd be my hero for the month. Any takers? Ajpolino (talk) 22:11, 12 September 2021 (UTC)

Table setting imagemap[edit]

I was wondering if an image map should be created for table setting. Not everyone can distinguish between multiple types of fork, and there are too many utensils for a written description to be read comfortably (see full course dinner).

The imagemap would help the reader identify each utensil without having to look back and forth between the image and the text. Painting17 (talk) 22:48, 12 September 2021 (UTC)
