@Sdkb: I didn't see this earlier, but I really appreciate what you're doing over there! :D –MJLTalk 16:52, 28 August 2023 (UTC)[reply]


The message box at the top of the template says "This template does not display in the mobile view of Wikipedia; it is desktop only. Read the documentation for an explanation.". What documentation is it referring to? Thanks. DH85868993 (talk) 06:11, 1 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Yeah, it isn't explained anywhere. I'm not sure if there's a documentation page... documenting this well. SWinxy (talk) 18:31, 8 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
 Fixed. – Jonesey95 (talk) 18:49, 8 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Oh cool! Thanks! SWinxy (talk) 00:40, 9 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Proposal: Upgrade to include param TemplateStyles[edit]

Please add optional parameter |styles= (alias: |TemplateStyles=) which takes the value of the TemplateStyles file used by the template, and displays it in the style of template ((Uses TemplateStyles)). Ideally, there should be a default value, so that if the param is included with no value, then the value passed to ((Uses TemplateStyles)) should be a file name consisting of the name of the template with /styles.css appended; that is, for Template:Foo, including |styles=Template:Foo/styles.css in ((Navbox documentation)) would be equivalent to including the parameter with no value. Thanks, Mathglot (talk) 17:51, 8 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

The second unnamed parameter can be used instead. It can be used for both adding more template banners, but also for things like ((Template shortcut)) and ((Uses TemplateStyles)). SWinxy (talk) 18:28, 8 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@SWinxy:, thanks! That's really not at all clear from the documentation; guess that makes this a heterological template. I may have to come back and fix the doc. Thanks again! Mathglot (talk) 06:19, 9 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Updated. I've also added a |hatnotes= param for hatnotes appearing above the banners. SWinxy (talk) 19:42, 9 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
