DIAMM tempalteEdit

Hi! You seem better versed in the technical side of Wikipedia than I so I was wondering if you could assist with this: I think a template for Medieval composers at the Digital Image Archive of Medieval Music, akin to Template:IMSLP would be beneficial, but I'm not sure how to do it myself. I suspect it would use the "people id" numbers in each url (e.g. 155 for Gherardello da Firenze). Any insight would be appreciated. Aza24 (talk) 21:16, 21 August 2020 (UTC)

Aza24, that looks both feasible to do and sensible to put in a template. I'm currently not home and have a quite a lot of IRL stuff going on right now, but I can probably create the template in a few days. --Trialpears (talk) 12:25, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
No rush! I'd appreciate anything thing you are able to come up with. Aza24 (talk) 02:25, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
Aza24, after a long wait I've finally created it now at {{DIAMM}}. Supports composers and composition pages currently. Just ask me if you are missing any features and I will (hopefully more swiftly) help. --Trialpears (talk) 14:18, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
The template looks great! The only thing I noticed is that it seems to make a page break, like in the external links section of Josquin des Prez#External links but this may have been an input error on my part? Aza24 (talk) 19:35, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
Aza24,   Fixed forgot to remove some white space added for readability. --Trialpears (talk) 20:49, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
Lovely to see. You've helped immensely as I try to tidy up the mess of Medieval and Renaissance composers we have on WP. Even the art and literature equivalents have had so much more attention! Aza24 (talk) 22:04, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
Sorry to bother you with this again, I had added two categories to the template (Category:Music external link templates and Category:Composer templates) but in doing so I seem to have made it so any pages with this template are also added to the category. I tried moving the categories to the sub page, but to no avail. Aza24 (talk) 20:18, 6 September 2020 (UTC)
Aza24, actually you solved it! Category updates through templates just take a while. Usually the categories are put inside <includeonly> tags and inside {{sandbox other}} to avoid the documentation and sandbox pages being put in the category as well though. --Trialpears (talk) 20:02, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

Hello, I have given the necessary explanations on the discussion page Template: infobox royalty, please checkArya.Go (talk) 00:17, 2 September 2020 (UTC)

Arya.Go, I'm happy to implement changes if there is a consensus for them, but I'm not seeing one right now. Perhaps you could drop a note at WT:ROYAL and see what they think about your changes? --Trialpears (talk) 12:11, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
