FYI to all wiki editors:

 

I am in the process of tweaking our notification templates to be more accepting of '=' signs within the template custom text. Some may have noticed that certain URLs or INI setting calls would break these templates (uncommon, but very annoying). This was due to these templates relying on "anonymous" parameter calls. I altered them to use "named" parameter calls and also added some better handling for border calls and defaults as well as error notifications when the params are called incorrectly. (see second note)

 

What this means is that all of the affected pages need to be updated accordingly. I am taking care of it, but I could always miss something.

 

Just keep in mind that these templates need to be called in a slightly different manner ... those of you that forget this, will be presented with an obvious visual cue and a link to the new usage examples.

 

I finished with the 'Small' versions and will tackle the bigger ones in the days ahead.

Thanks for this! Indeed it was very annoying!

I saw the new error in the browser display and fixed the Fallout 3 guide, which had only two notices.

@Tech

Pleasure!

 

@Kelmych

Glad you noticed ... I tried to make it pretty obvious and provide info to rectifying.

 

@all

I have finished these template updates and (I think) I fixed all outstanding issues of 'bad' template calls.

 

We might consider likewise modifying any templates that could ever hold an '=' symbol Example (see second 'Notice') as text or in a URL. I tackled these templates, since they are used commonly.

I corrected most of them, but perhaps we crossed paths a bit ... or page caching could have 'lied' to us for a time.

 

I tried to be as quiet as possible and fix the high traffic areas first ;) ... sorry for any inconvenience.

I had a run through a few of the guides and fixed up what I found, can't leave all the work to you guide authors, you need to keep your creative minds focussed so the content remains as good as it is. ::):

I have tweaked most of the notification templates to auto expand/contract with the size of the content. The main reason to do this was to prevent some major clipping on Hishutup's Oblivion Guide that could appear with the TOC, rendering it unreadable. If using multiple warnings, etc., you should add a line break between them to avoid them "stacking" on top of each other.

Could we not just add a line break into the templates to prevent that?

That's exactly what I just said, not?

Well, it reads the user needs to put one in manually. So I suggested just putting one into the templates so the user wouldn't have to worry about it. That way whenever a template is called on a page it automatically adds a line break.

That's a thought, but I think it would be preferable to have the wiki editor add the line break, as adding it to the template would increase its size. And then some people might not like the added break.

The guide is outdated, I need to go through and fix a ton of stuff.

I'll catch up on everything after the wiki goes though its "update"
