@Me-123567-Me: Not done First, you've given a redlink. Second, where was consensus established for this addition? --Redrose64 (talk) 19:07, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

Edit request[edit]

Hi... could someone tweak the template as per this edit... basically, am looking to change the short name for the "Political parties and politicians" (PPAP) subchoice from "Politicians" to "Politics", which is a more suitable general label for a wikiproject that includes (and lists first) parties as well as people.

I'm actually not totally sure that edit will have the desired effect because when I attempt to preview an example with the sandbox, say Vancouver 1st, I'm not seeing the change as desired. But that's the request, at least... maybe I missed something somewhere?Joeyconnick (talk) 19:53, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

It's no good previewing Vancouver 1st because the {{WikiProject Canada}} template doesn't appear on that page, you need to preview one that does - such as Talk:Vancouver 1st. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 08:04, 31 January 2019 (UTC)
Sorry... I mistyped. I did try previewing Talk:Vancouver 1st with the sandbox version and the change still didn't show up. —Joeyconnick (talk) 19:17, 31 January 2019 (UTC)
Ah, I see what you did. If you're editing a template, and you use the second Show preview button, the page name that you enter in the window just before that button needs to be one that contains that exact template. Template:WikiProject Canada and Template:WikiProject Canada/sandbox are different, you can't edit one and preview a page that uses the other. There are at least three ways around this:
  1. Make your changes to Template:WikiProject Canada without saving, and use the second Show preview button to preview Talk:Vancouver 1st
  2. Make your changes to Template:WikiProject Canada/sandbox and save. Then edit Talk:Vancouver 1st to alter {{WikiProject Canada|... to {{WikiProject Canada/sandbox|... - don't save this, just do the normal preview.
  3. Make your changes to Template:WikiProject Canada/sandbox and save. Then, at Template talk:WikiProject Canada/testcases#Nested versions, make sure that both of the WikiProject tags have the |ppap=yes parameter in addition to those already present. Then either preview or save.
Option 3 is probably easiest, it's near-enogh already done. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 00:30, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
Right... not sure why I didn't realize that. I can't do (1) because I don't have template editor rights. (2) works, and produces the desired result in preview (which I figured was the case, just wasn't able to confirm), and I should have remembered I could have done (3) because I've worked with test cases before. But anyway, as helpful as the tips are, the actual desired outcome is to have the request considered (whether effected by my suggested edit or whatever other method preferred) by someone with template editor rights, as I don't have them and so can't make the change myself. —Joeyconnick (talk) 09:46, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
Since you're happy with how it looks for both 2 and 3, this is  Done. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:53, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
Thank you very much, for the edit and for the advice/guidance! —Joeyconnick (talk) 01:13, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

Synchronize template sandbox with live template. My revision converts "stjohns" to an alias for "nl" now that the two WikiProjects have been merged together. This will automatically bring all articles tagged with stjohns into the Newfoundland and Labrador project. BLAIXX 18:31, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

Synchronize template sandbox with live template. My revision converts "kawartha-lakes" to an alias for "on" now that the two WikiProjects have been merged together. This will automatically bring all articles tagged with kawartha-lakes into the Ontario project. I will update the docs if this request is granted. BLAIXX 15:26, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
