Template talk:RelativeLocation


Something went wrong with the parameter "in state". The output of the example now reads "Washington, D.C., D.C.". Regards, Vincent Steenberg (talk) 08:31, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

   Done it was {{City}} that was causing this problem, rather than this template. Vincent Steenberg (talk) 22:52, 30 July 2010 (UTC)


Autolinking is cool, but how can one prevent it if it is misleading ? See for example Institution:State Library of Queensland, where "South Bank" (Queensland, Australia) is linked to Category:South Bank, London... Jean-Fred (talk) 18:48, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

I think the best solution would be: create a template "South Bank, Brisbanne" but I am not perfectly clear what South Bank Brisbanne exactly is. We could probably have a "no city" option, but I am not sure it would be very convenient

4th parameterEdit

What is the 4th parameter supposed to do ? Is there a reason why it does not use {{city}} ?--Zolo (talk) 07:36, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

It does use {{city}}. For example : {{RelativeLocation|Poronin |near|Zakopane}} gives "Poronin near Zakopane". See this edit. --Jarekt (talk) 13:27, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
This is the 3d parameter, I was referring to the 4th one (documented as "name of the region, state or country both locations are located in"). {{RelativeLocation|Poronin |near|Zakopane|Poland}} gives "Poronin near Zakopane, Poland" rather than "Poronin near Zakopane, Poland".--Zolo (talk) 13:55, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
I see what you are saying. Yes the only reason why it is not using city is because I missed it. I will add it. --Jarekt (talk) 19:18, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Template structureEdit

Can I move all subtemplates to the main page ? Language subtemplates make it harder to keep translations synchronized and to make use of other templates to make better translations (for example {{conj|type=or}} for the "or" type. --Zolo (talk) 11:07, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

   Done in {{RelativeLocation/core}} rather than main page to avoid cluttering with {{city}}.
Return to "RelativeLocation" page.
