Replacing an aspect ratio hack currently required for the Multiple image template[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

{{Multiple image}} documentation come complete with an aspect ratio hack that leads to potential maintenance problems. As documented here, to get a common height to a set of images being displayed horizontally using {{Multiple image}}, an editor must incorporate the aspect ratio of each non-square image using the following per-image width expression:

{{#expr: (dh * ow / oh) round 0}}

where, expressed in pixels, dh is the desired height, ow is the original width, and oh is the original height.

The basic request is to improve this. More specifically, at a minimum, create a new template that replaces that expression, such as {{imagewidth|dh|oh|ow}} As far as I know, no such template already exists.

If its possible for a template to detect ow and oh, you could implement a more ambitious and usable approach. For a coveted {{Template Barnstar}}, incorporate support for dh directly into {{Multiple image}}. My proposal would be to introduce a parameter called height, which would be a per-template instance like width (as opposed to the numbered per-image parameters like width1, width2, etc.) Specifying height in this manner would eliminate the need to specify the multiple per-image width expressions.

Thanks in advance. 67.101.5.135 (talk) 22:26, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

Over 150 editors watch this page, yet no one is interested in improving {{Multiple image}}, a template used in thousands and thousand of articles? Or if the request is a bad idea, no one in the community is willing to say why? 67.101.5.104 (talk) 23:14, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Streaming services[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

Add wikisource support to poem infobox[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

It seems there is no support for a wikisource link in a poem infobox as there is in a book infobox. Can this functionality be added? ie:

{{Infobox poem
...
...
| wikisource = The Raven
}}

want cross-references when an article is moved but the talk is not[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

I request two templates, to solve the problem of when an article is merged leaving behind a redirect but the merged article's talk page is kept in place, resulting in talk topics for the destination article being found on two talk pages, including when one or both pages are archived. Once the second talk page is started, a history merger of the talk pages is almost always inappropriate, because it is not a true merger but an overwriting and there's a need to preserve old content and attributions for copyright reasons. So the talk pages should be kept but readers of either should be told of the other. Cross-references between current talk pages are needed. (They're not needed on archival pages.)

I created similar messages on both models, but using the {{Notice}} template, at Talk:Wife selling (Chinese custom) (post-redirection) and Talk:Wife selling (destination). I did not find any similar or related template and I don't remember ever seeing a similar situation on another talk page.

The destination article's talk page should tell readers that a companion talk page can be found where the old talk page was. The talk page for the former article that is now a redirect should have a notice discouraging talk except to improve the redirect but otherwise recommending that talkers go to the destination article's talk page.

The default text should not speak of merger because, to be precise, that is not always the process, and move seems generic enough. I'm not sure the losing article would always be a redirect; I suppose it's possible (although apparently lately uncommon) for an article to be deleted but the talk page kept (I have seen an archive kept when both the article and the current talk page were deleted), and therefore the default text should not assume that the losing page is a redirect. It also should not be assumed, when drafting the default text, that a redirect will always stay a redirect. Each new template should have a parameter for naming the other talk page and that parameter should be mandatory. Both should have icons; the destination page's template should have an icon for a notice while the former article's talk page's template should have an icon for a stop sign. Substitution probably should not be used.

One could be named Template:Talk_destination. I don't know what to name the other (Template:Talk_...).

The notices I created can, presumably, be replaced with the new templates.

Thanks. Nick Levinson (talk) 16:07, 30 June 2013 (UTC) (Corrected phrasing and moved text: 16:15, 30 June 2013 (UTC))

tables with floating header row[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

check out the big table on this page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Save_the_Children_State_of_the_World%27s_Mothers_report

once I've scrolled past the header, I can't see it without scrolling back up, which bugs the crap out of me when I'm trying to compare countries.

So what is the solution?

a) the table header row should float down with me while the table is on the screen

b) (regarding comparing rows) a filter by [header key]:[verb]:[value] directive.

eg. Filter by 'Nation' 'equals Israel' OR 'contains Palestin' would let me compare the row for 'Israel' and 'Occupied Palestinian Territory' (the 'contains' verb would allow me to not have to know what they called those territories here now) and then compare them side by side.
