Aligned wikipedia link with {{header}}[edit]

There has been recent changes to the Wikipedia header, to introduce the WP link, so with a little tweaking I have aligned the look of the two to be react the same way. — billinghurst sDrewth 16:51, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

I like the function invoked by the empty field, populating the maintenance cat, useful before it is used :-) cygnis insignis 17:16, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Some documentation for category application[edit]

All articles are listed at Category:DNB biographies

When certain parameters are left blank or altered, the details are noted

Second wikipedia check?[edit]

@Jura1: In this edit I am not sure why you have added the extra #if statement for Wikipedia. Care to explain that component and what it is achieving? — billinghurst sDrewth 10:56, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Not sure either. It was added by a Wikisource extension ( https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:TemplateData ) --Jura1 (talk) 10:52, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

Help needed[edit]

I added "override_contributor" parameter to pair with the "contributor" parameter, as having contributor overridden by "override_author" is not intuitive.

However I have no idea what <templatedata> is so I have left it alone, but I suspect it too needs changing. -- PBS (talk) 12:41, 26 April 2015 (UTC)


@Billinghurst: Hudson, Michael (DNB00) appears in Category:DNB No WP, despite having the wikipedia= field filled in. I have seen this for quite some time now, say a year, via a Petscan query, and only just tracked it back here.

I assume there is a rational explanation, rather than the template being haunted. Charles Matthews (talk) 07:27, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

@Charles Matthews: Yes, the rational explanation is that you manually categorised it in 2009. I have removed it. Usually it is me that misses the bleeding obvious, stop stealing my special ability. — billinghurst sDrewth 11:40, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Apologies, and thanks! Charles Matthews (talk) 07:52, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
