Template:Infobox phrase[edit]

Need help creating an infobox for phrases like Namaste. Parameters would include "Origin/etymology", "Meaning", and "Coined by".--Prisencolin (talk) 01:25, 26 August 2017 (UTC)

@Prisencolin: I've made a basic infobox for you with an image and those three parameters. Have a look at what I've done and see if you can add more parameters. If you run into problems, ping me, or drop a note on my talk page. Cheers --RexxS (talk) 03:25, 26 August 2017 (UTC)
@RexxS: Sorry for the late reply but thanks so much!--Prisencolin (talk) 06:04, 3 September 2017 (UTC)

Infobox church[edit]

May I make a couple of suggestions for possible amendments to this template in relation to the status section, as follows:

  • heritage designation - I think it would help if the box allowed for more than one designation, as infobox historic site does. I think a great number of churches must encompass more than one designation. An example; St Mary's Priory Church, Monmouth is Grade II* listed, but so are its gates. However, I think it unlikely the gates will ever have their own article so I would like to record their separate designation in the infobox for the church. An example of what I mean can be seen at Trewyn House. Here, the infobox allows me to record the designations of the house, the walls, and the dovecote.
  • designation number - For the UK, and perhaps elsewhere, every listing has a unique designation number. Infobox historic site allows me to record this, as at Trewyn House. Unfortunately infobox church does not, although it does allow me to record the designation date. I think the inclusion of the unique designation number would help, particularly as identifying churches, which often have identical dedications, can be confusing.

I would be grateful if these suggestions could be considered. I have also posted this at the Infobox church Talkpage. Thanks and regards. KJP1 (talk) 20:36, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

Template:Subnational Entity File[edit]

Auburn Hills Mobile Estates is trying to call an infobox called "Subnational Entity File". There has never been a template at this title, and no other page links to it. The only parameter of template:Infobox Settlement, which other articles about unincorporated places in California use, that matches is "name". Can someone who knows more about infoboxes than me take a look. Thanks, Thryduulf (talk) 14:46, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

But there was a template at Template:Subnational entity until it was redirected. See its page history. I'm guessing that the infobox originally intended when it was created in February was something similar to Template:Infobox U.S. county, but for a smaller or less well-defined entity. As El Yaqui is still editing, we could always ask him what he wanted. --RexxS (talk) 23:35, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

Discussion: Create a bot to regularly update transclusion count for each infobox template[edit]

I'm seeking consensus around whether or not it makes sense to create a bot to regularly update the transduction count for infobox templates. Right now that count has to be updated manually by an editor. Here's an example of a manual update. JustaZBguy (talk) 21:47, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
