Again, welcome!

And by the way, you might consider uploading that dictionary as a djvu file to Commons and working from that. For more on that, see Help:Beginner's guide to proofreading and H:INDEX. —Clockery Fairfeld (talk) 10:45, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi Clockery and thank you for the welcome! I had the idea of uploading the dictionary as a table, so that it could be sorted in other ways rather than just alphabetically (such as by province), but that does not preclude the possibility of uploading it in djvu format, as you suggested. I will try to learn a little more about WikiSource before I do that. Cheers, Underlying lk (talk) 10:59, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
That's a good point. Maybe two versions could be hosted? —Clockery Fairfeld (talk) 08:00, 30 August 2013 (UTC)


Have you considered embedding a parameter switch bl=yes (or bl=1) that would activate blackletter typeface without the need for an additional template call? --EncycloPetey (talk) 20:13, 23 June 2018 (UTC)

I tried to implement it, but I can't get it to work so far. The {{ characters get in the way of the 'if' function.--Underlying lk (talk) 20:43, 23 June 2018 (UTC)
I think I've solved the issue. Look at Template:Kluge/sandbox2 and verify whether it works as it should. --EncycloPetey (talk) 21:18, 23 June 2018 (UTC)
Seems to work okay. I just changed ifeq to if, so that is also works with bl=yes etc.--Underlying lk (talk) 21:31, 23 June 2018 (UTC)


Hi. If you want to run automated edits, you need to ask for permission (as you did) and stick to the process. Bye— Mpaa (talk) 19:04, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

Got it. I have added some more details to my request.--Underlying lk (talk) 19:26, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
