Linking corporate author[edit]

How do I get the author field of the template to link to Portal:Australian Freedom League for the work Facts About Conscription? The only other option I can think of is removing the work from the list so it doesn't show that annoying red-link.Misarxist (talk) 06:45, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Explained at Template:New_texts/item and I have updated accordingly. — billinghurst sDrewth 10:02, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Scope to extend the list length ?[edit]

We seem to be churning through new texts, and they disappear off the bottom in a wake or two. Should we be thinking about having a longer list? Obviously we would need to look at the impact on the main page where it transcludes. — billinghurst sDrewth 09:18, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Is that in terms of "wake of a ship"; or the term of a laying-out?
In short, Yes; a couple more items should not upset the current layout; and/or a slightly smaller font perhaps would allow a more significant lengthening of the list. MODCHK (talk) 09:35, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
A slightly longer list would be OK. The right column has seemed to be a bit short lately anyway (NB: I've just added a text without removing one; there was some white space under the column on the main page, so it worked out). Alternatively, reducing the font size by a notch or adjusting the page could free more space. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 18:45, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
The longer list works this month, but the list of 7 was too long in February because the FT commentary was shorter. If we want a longer list, is there something else that can go onto the left column under the collaborations? Or do we add a fourth collaboration such as WikiProject of the month?

Although I'm sure there could be overlap, what if we split up new texts? Like New Poetry, etc. - Theornamentalist (talk) 22:54, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
I like this proposal by Billinghurst (talkcontribs), I think a slightly longer list to try out is a great idea. -- Cirt (talk) 18:32, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
Adding something to the left column could work. While I do like the idea of WikiProject of the Month, that is very similar to Community Collaboration which has been the same for a long time now. New poetry would be the simplest (or some other separation of new texts, such as non-fiction vs. fiction/poetry) as all the templates and support structure already exists. We could also feature something else each month; perhaps an author. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 21:39, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
"some other separation of new texts, such as non-fiction vs. fiction/poetry" = this seems like the best idea and easiest to implement. -- Cirt (talk) 20:16, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
