again problems with collection (P195), location (P276)Edit

please see Portrait of Bernhart von Reesen (Q3937475), File:Albrecht Dürer - Portrait of Bernhard von Reesen - Google Art Project.jpg Oursana (talk) 12:55, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

@Oursana: Looks completely fine to me with both English and German interface, both Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden (Q653002) and Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister (Q4890) are displayed in the "Current location" field of File:Albrecht Dürer - Portrait of Bernhard von Reesen - Google Art Project.jpg as they should. Would probably be useful if you point out what problem specifically you see. LG, --Marsupium (talk) 18:15, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your answer, IMHO Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden (Q653002) shouldn't show up in the institution field, some time ago in similar cases Jarekt could take it away. I hope you agree with me, LGOursana (talk) 19:21, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
Problems with Uffizi, see File:Bonaventura Berlinghieri - Madonna and Child with Saints and Crucifixion - WGA1954.jpg--Oursana (talk) 02:52, 23 October 2018 (UTC)
I think it is just saying that the museum is Uffizi Gallery and the actual location is at the Uffizi house. Maybe separating Institution from current locations as it is proposed below would made this more clear. --Jarekt (talk) 17:45, 23 October 2018 (UTC)
I split the Collection and Location fields but I am not sure if the data from Wikidata is properly assigned to each field. --Jarekt (talk) 14:25, 16 November 2018 (UTC)--Jarekt (talk) 14:25, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
see File:Giotto di Bondone 034.jpg should be Cappella Scrovegni--Oursana (talk) 16:00, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
I'm not sure what happened on that page. This is the version before your edits and after you were done. Anyway, not a template problem and now cleaned up. Multichill (talk) 21:50, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

Current location retrieved from accession numberEdit

In File:Giuseppe cesari (le cavalier d'arpin) - portrait d'un architecte - 1591.jpg, the Louvre shown in the current location field, apparently because the painting has an accession number from the Louvre. I don't think that really makes sense. The painting is a long term loan from the Louvre to the Grenoble Museum, but the Louvre is not the "current location". Zolo (talk) 19:08, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

Perhaps we should simply break up "collection" out of "current location" field like in Wikidata? --Marsupium (talk) 23:07, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
Yes, that sounds like the cleanest solution. We should probably not show both when they have the same value though. --Zolo (talk) 09:52, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
Yes, sure! --Marsupium (talk) 14:18, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
That would be perhaps the cleanest solution. --Jarekt (talk) 17:47, 23 October 2018 (UTC)
I agree too--Oursana (talk) 22:21, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
  Done --Jarekt (talk) 14:21, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

place of creationEdit

The "place of creation" entry hasn't been capitalized like all other entries. --Cold Season (talk) 13:06, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

Should be   Fixed now. --Jarekt (talk) 19:02, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

formatting problem for (very) long urls coming from WikidataEdit

Please see this file to see the problem: File:Gerard Dou - The Dropsical Woman - WGA06647.jpg. I think these urls should be collapsed somehow. The Japanese characters make me need to scroll right in order to view the file info with Qid/title. Jane023 (talk) 15:40, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

@Jarekt: Jane mentioned to me that the link on File:Gerard Dou - The Dropsical Woman - WGA06647.jpg messes up the whole layout. It would probably be good to render that as《病気の女》、伝統的通称《水腫の女》. Multichill (talk) 15:40, 19 January 2019 (UTC)
Exactly. Jane023 (talk) 16:00, 19 January 2019 (UTC)
I was experimenting with mw.text.decode function that suppose to fix that issue, but it does not seem to help. In other cases like that I usually add "title" qualifier to help format the displayed string, like in d:Q378034, but you are right the software should be able to convert such strings to proper characters. --Jarekt (talk) 05:12, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
Why don't we store the URLs in Wikidata in not encoded form? (I do that usually.) --Marsupium (talk) 14:41, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
@Jarekt: That’s for HTML encoding, like < and  . What you need is mw.uri.decode, although you should take care of special ASCII characters like spaces and brackets, which are also decoded by this function. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 21:25, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
  Fixed thanks to Tacsipacsi suggestion. --Jarekt (talk) 03:45, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
@Jarekt: The special characters problem also applies to the unencoded URLs—AFAIK there is no restriction prohibiting these special characters in stored statement values. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 21:12, 21 January 2019 (UTC)


Wikidata has a fabrication method (P2079) property used for example in Weight for weighing gold dust (Q61752716). I think it would make sense to indlude it in the "medium" field (the parameter used to be called "technique"). -Zolo (talk) 13:28, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
