Question[edit]

Why should this template always be subst:ed? Over at en.Wikipedia, we use templates like these all the time, but we wouldn't subst the template. EVula 06:01, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Originally it was just intended to simplify formatting. Now that this format is standard, though, I often find myself ignoring the recommendation to substitute. I think we could remove that recommendation now. —{admin} Pathoschild 18:02:03, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Extra Space[edit]

Please delete the <br />. (cf.: Please look at the blue box in The Society of the Spectacle) Or remove the protection.24.65.69.8 00:38, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

I dont see a blue box. John Vandenberg (chat) 02:30, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
The br tag is inside the noinclude tag; it does nothing but break out the template documentation from the template itself.
However, the full line-break between the end of the template and the noinclude tag is, indeed, causing an excess of whitespace when the template is used prior to a full line break. I've removed the template's excess space, as a regular transclusion will still insert a normal linebreak (instead of two, which is what's happening). I also watched several pages where the template is transcluded; it didn't have any adverse effects. EVula // talk // 19:32, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
