Hi, I'm a big user of your {{label}} template, thanks but the latest changes have made a lot of mistakes. obviously, this is the line 96: attempt to concatenate a nil value. do you think you can do something? Camulogene77 (talk) 10:01, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

I hope it is   Fixed now. --Jarekt (talk) 12:44, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
hallelujah and thank you again Camulogene77 (talk) 17:57, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

Option parameter in Template:CreatorEdit

Hello, Jarekt. Do you see, why the template {{Creator}} does not work with the named parameter option, but only with an unnamed param? The documentation and the template source tell it different, but cf. Special:Diff/291856845/291857329 and the change before. Hopefully the only not working parameter. — Speravir – 00:59, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

{{Creator}} template only works with named parameter option, but pages in Creator namespace, like Creator:Johann Gottfried Auerbach only work with unnamed parameters, as documented. The | Option = {{{1|}}} line in many creator pages does the conversion. --Jarekt (talk) 03:06, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
OK, apart from my letter case mistake it is in my opinion not clear enough documented, but do not know in the moment where exactly it could be done better. — Speravir – 18:51, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
I tried to document it, but I guess I did not succeeded. I will look at this again. --Jarekt (talk) 20:12, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
Nonetheless thanks for the effort. — Speravir – 00:05, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

Machine readable licenseEdit

Sorry for asking again. You have been the last one editing {{Cc-by-layout}}. Do you know which part is responsible for machine readability? Are this the invisible spans? If so do you know whether one could add more than one of the span class="licensetpl_link"? If you do not know this whome could I ask instead in your opinion? The background is Commons:Village_pump#User_custom_license_tags_forbidden?. — Speravir – 00:14, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

Meanwhile De728631 pointed me to Commons:Machine-readable data. So, it seems my questions are essentially answered. — Speravir – 00:59, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

Questions a change in Template:Size - would you like to answer? Ronhjones  (Talk) 21:56, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

  Done --Jarekt (talk) 03:34, 14 March 2018 (UTC)


Hi, Jarekt. File:William Powell Frith Mr Honeywell introduces the bailiffs 1850.jpg states for its size: "17 × 24.5 cm (0 × 0 miles)". I remember: in the past the template showed paintings size in inches. File:AsmusCarstens.png shows height in inches and width in miles. What's wrong? Taivo (talk) 13:18, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

  Fixed a bug in my last tweak of Module:Size. Taivo thanks for reporting this, as none of my test cases had this combination. --Jarekt (talk) 14:20, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

Institution:Riksarkivet (Norway)Edit

Hi! There's something wrong there with one of the modules you've been involved in editing recently. I checked a random sample of five other institution templates, and it seems to be happening in all of them. Are you able to figure out what's wrong? Jon Harald Søby (talk) 11:25, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

Since the line with the error has to do with user language, I should mention that my user language is "nb". When I check with other languages using ?uselang, it seems to be working properly. Jon Harald Søby (talk) 11:28, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
Jon Harald Søby, Thank you for reporting this. Thanks to this I discovered some deep-rooted issues with Module:Coordinates, which was one of my early attempts on working with Lua. I have the fix to Module:Coordinates ready but it will need some more testing. The fix will prevent the actual code crash, but there might be still an issue with handling of "nb" language. --Jarekt (talk) 13:04, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
Jon Harald Søby What is the relationship between "no" and "nb" languages? MediaWiki:Lang/nb used to list language of the user with "nb" language preference, lists "no". Would there be any valid reason for that? --Jarekt (talk) 13:14, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

“nb” is specifically bokmål, “no” is likely generic Norwegian. Did not help, see or , whichever (but e.g. works). Incnis Mrsi (talk) 13:22, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

@Jarekt: It's a long story. Most of the Wikimedia-verse has stanardized on used nb everywhere except for in the domain of (which is, because of historical snafu). However, Commons still uses no instead of nb to a very large degree. Ideally both MediaWiki:Lang/no and MediaWiki:Lang/nb should be "nb" and not "no", but I'm afraid of unintended side-effects if we just change them without knowing what else relies on them (which I imagine is a lot…). Basically, "no" is a macro-language that covers both "nb" and "nn", but in the Commons context "no" means just "nb".
@Incnis Mrsi: Since both MediaWiki:Lang/no and MediaWiki:Lang/nb have the same language code, there ought to be no difference in those two ?uselang links. Jon Harald Søby (talk) 14:19, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
Anyways, it seems like the recent edits you made fixed the issue. I don't know why exactly, but it worked! Thank you! Jon Harald Søby (talk) 14:22, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
