Secondary children

I need some help please. How, on this wiki, do I set up a secondary child structure within a navbox, in this case for the various wards of Korvosa within the districts? Have a look at Template:Areas of London - what I want is the equivalent of the subdivisions of 'Town centre network'. Wikipedia uses a {{Navbox subgroup}}, which we don't seem to have, and does not have 'child'. I vaguely remember an example of such a navbox once existing in the help pages but cannot now find it. --Fleanetha (talk) 14:09, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia's {{Navbox subgroup}} is implemented here as {{Navbox | child}}. Just keep nesting child navboxes without titles (see below).
Updating our navbox templates to more closely match WP's could be my next big maintenance project, but it'll have to wait.
Another point to consider: if you need that many levels of nested groups, this navbox might be getting excessively dense to navigate and could be better by being organized differently, or even giving each ward its own navbox. -Oznogon (talk) 21:24, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
Perfect and thanks for the quick response. --Fleanetha (talk) 23:28, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

Redundant redirected listings

There are items in this navbox effectively listed twice, once by its primary name and again by its redirect. This leads to some blue links in the navbox that suggest content but which redirect to an unwritten page.

Can these redirects be removed? If not, can they be reorganized to be more directly associated with their redirect targets? For instance, instead of these being separate items, both linked:

Can we list only the non-redirect:

Or at least list the redirect alongside the unlinked non-redirect:

That is by design Oznogon. That's a mighty navbox, so I think the alternative names should be listed in their alphabetical position as that might be the term being used to look up info and, unless it's in the right place, may get missed as an aka elsewhere in the alphabetical order. To avoid the blue link problem, which I do recognise, another way would be to list the redirect page preceded by the target page and a '|' so:

* [[North Bridge|Longriver Bridge]]

* [[North Bridge]]

When the page is written both links will turn blue. That will also have the advantage of both alternative names would be emboldened on the navbox on the page. --Fleanetha (talk) 13:35, 25 November 2018 (UTC)
That works for me! Thanks for the clarification. -Oznogon (talk) 16:48, 25 November 2018 (UTC)
