Template talk:Magnimar navbox

From PathfinderWiki

Great Job!

Great job on this template, Fleanetha. I especially like the details you put into the sub-categories; something I will have to steal from you the next time I work on a nav box. --Brandingopportunity (talk) 17:22, 20 September 2012 (UTC)

Seconded. This is phenomenal!—Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 23:13, 20 September 2012 (UTC)
Thank you, gentlemen; still a bit of work to be done, though, even on the template (let alone all those red links!). I have also experimented with using a no breaking space (& n b s p ;) within an item's double brackets and it seems to work:
  • it displays ok with a blue or red link
  • clicking on a red link opens up a page named correctly without a nbsp symbol in the middle
  • a search finds the item even if searched for without a nbsp
In the past I have followed suit with navboxes where we have [ [ page title | page & n b s p ; title] ] to make the formatting pretty but I think we can do away with this and just do [ [ page & n b s p ; title] ]. This will save a lot of cut and paste time unless I missed something.--Fleanetha (talk) 10:00, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

Removal of Roads

Hi User:Brandingopportunity - have a look at the Magnimar map in the Shattered Star Poster Map Folio - these are major roads you are deleting. Did I mention I tend not to place random things in these templates?! --Fleanetha (talk) 19:09, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

I wasn't aware of the Magnimar map in the Map Folio until you just pointed it out, thanks for that. Edits are never meant as personal criticism, Fleanetha. We're all just doing what we think is best. Sometimes we are right in this assumption, and other times we aren't; in this case I was wrong. --Brandingopportunity (talk) 20:41, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
No problem and I am interrupting your awesome progress. Please feel free to ask me if you're unsure about something. Certainly this template is sourced from more than just Magnimar, City of Monuments. It looks different in blue. --Fleanetha (talk) 00:00, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
I've been sourcing stuff from Magnimar, City of Monuments, Blood of the City, In the Event of My Untimely Demise, the map in The Skinsaw Murders, the Shattered Star Adventure Path, and now the Shattered Star Poster Map Folio. Did you pull proper nouns from other sources? --Brandingopportunity (talk) 03:53, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
Also, Fleanetha, what is House Vetillus from? I can't find a reference to it anywhere. --Brandingopportunity (talk) 14:20, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
Whether it's the only reference I am unsure at this distance, but try In the Event of My Untimely Demise/Index for one link, though I see that is on your list above! --Fleanetha (talk) 10:11, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
It may help when putting red links in templates like this to use the /doc page to list the source so other chroniclers know where to go. I was misguidedly trying something similar, but also included the non-red links, which is silly since the main article has the sourcing. Brandingopportunity found one of them recently - see Template:Demon species. -- FoiledAgain (talk) 02:27, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
Yes, it is a worthy idea, FoiledAgain, which I have seen you use and the /doc page is more readily accessible than a comment on the Discussion page. A full ref to every entity is a huge extra effort on what is already a large undertaking, though, which I am loathe to do and have lazily ignored so far. However, I may adapt it somewhat in future: a simple list of sources used to construct a template would be useful and it might serve a second use of a quasi-meta (yuk!) page to tick off which sources are incorporated in a particular template and, thus, which ones have not. I shall try to remember to do that next time to see if it works. --Fleanetha (talk) 10:11, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
