Template talk:Created with Inkscape


So can someone explain to me why this template and any others like it are not blatant wikispam? Wikimedia do not exist to promote commercial products, however useful they may be to someone. <grumble, murmur, lumber back into cave> — SMcCandlish [talk] [contrib] 10:20, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Inkscape is free/open-source software. Templates such as this one point users and editors to free software they can use to create free works. Rl 15:13, 2 April 2007 (UTC)
I like this so I will use it. Although I'm concerned about the legality of this whitin Wikimedia policy --Andersmusician $ 03:48, 14 June 2007 (UTC)
No need to be concerned. Wikimedia is interested in helping people find free tools they can use to create free content. See meta:Talk:Open Source Toolset Rl 17:02, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
I must say I use Inkscape all the time, and am for the most part quite happy with it, but I agree with SMcCandlish that this is essentially spam. Brianski 07:38, 7 November 2007 (UTC)


How is it posible to create a international version of this template? I've no idea... Bubinator 14:16, 6 November 2007 (UTC)


{{editprotect}} The old official logo Inkscape logo 2.svg  has been superseded by the current official one Inkscape Logo.svg . In the source plz replace "Inkscape logo 2.svg" by "Inkscape Logo.svg". --Tomchen1989 (talk) 12:34, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

  Done (Well, if somebody is able to spot the difference…) --Mormegil (talk) 09:45, 4 November 2011 (UTC)
Both these logos are somehow blurred, in that small size, compared to Inkscape.logo.svg  which seems better.
Now we use these three logos: Inkscape-yes.svg Inkscape-un.svg Inkscape-no.svg .

Cats and InterwikisEdit

{{Edit request}} Hello, I just moved all templates from Category:SVG software marker templates to Category:SVG created with ... templates because the templates in the old category where a subgroup of Category:Created with ... templates and should be also named like the parent. Per Commons:OVERCAT Category:Created with ... templates and Category:SVG marker templates should be removed and the new category should be added. The interwikilink ka:თარგი:Created_with_Inkscape should be moved from the /doc page to the template like the other links. Thanks. --Pyfisch (talk) 12:22, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

The /doc umentation is not protected to make it possible for users who are not administrators to categorize the template and add language links. -- Rillke(q?) 22:24, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Grey box too damn longEdit

Why is the grey background box in this template so long? It is far longer than needed to contain the English text. Is this a bug as a result of internationalization, perhaps to accommodate an equivalent character string in another language that requires much more space? — Quicksilver@ 22:08, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

You are right, the box is indeed too long. It is coded to use 100% of the width currently available, i.e. the remaining space in the {{Information}} box. It is longer if you use it outside; when you set erroneously taggings like {{ValidSVG}} (or others like {{Inkscape}}) as parameters to the Other fields without {{Information field}}, the boxes are created unavoidably advancing the 'Informaton' box, above of it.
You may see an example of the intended correct use at IEC-906-1-plug.svg.
This graphic was created with Inkscape.
Because of the templates protection state it is not so easy to find a swift solution; as it would be to allow a new parameter e.g. width. You can always write an embracing div statement, like <div style="width:40%">{{Created with Inkscape}}</div>. This would shorten the box, with the (not so bad) consequence that text in more talkative languages than English will need two lines.
At the moment we have these languages for {{Inkscape}}:

They all got a width of 40%, except the English version which got 60% to highlight it. You see that for most languages 40% is enough to express everything in one line.
If you think it useful, make a suggestion for the implementation of an additional optional parameter for this template which will overwrite the 100% value. Sorry, my English is not so good, I am not a native speaker sarang사랑 07:51, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Edit requestEdit

{{Edit request}} This highly used template ({{Created with Inkscape}}: 57 000 + {{Inkscape}}: 41 000) needs some correction and expansion:

  1. The width as required above #Grey box too damn long
  2. The parameter expansions I inserted in the documentation.

Admin, before you change the protection status to "frozen" you may discuss with me how to ensure that no errors will occur. Thanks sarang사랑 09:37, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

The complete source code to be copied:
-->{{Autotranslate|1={{{1|}}}|2=Inkscape Logo.svg|3=Inkscape|4={{{IMPORTANT|}}}|base=Created with Inkscape|width={{{width|}}}}}<noinclude>
In {{Created with Inkscape/en}} the parameter |width= needs to be inserted too. sarang사랑 09:20, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
  Done, though the new version comes with a slight problem: {{v}} display the valid SVG tag but also displays as "...created with Inkscape by v". We should either check for v and then supply an empty author or just make v the second parameter and not look at the first param when deciding whether to display the valid SVG tag. Regards, --ChrisiPK (Talk|Contribs) 12:22, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

More parametersEdit

Since it is possible to use {{ValidSVG}} / {{InvalidSVG}} as sub-templates, it seems an advantage to pass parameters to them. Additional to the width and style parameters for Inkscape, it should be possible to set independent values to the width and style parameters for Valid/InvalidSVG.
It is now mentioned in the documentation, but because the template itself is protected it is not yet implemeted there. --- Now   Done

See e.g. {{Created with Sodipodi}} how the additional parameters are passed to Valid/InvalidSVG. sarang사랑 16:41, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Example: {{Inkscape|err=1|vstyle=float:left|style=height:28px;line-height:2.05em}}
