Template talk:HR Known Issues

From FamilySearch Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

 In answer to suggestions and questions.   The badge for Known Issues is embedded in the Learn More documents which already use a template of their own and are created by Dorothy Horan's group.   So we can't do that.   The question really is "Why is the text alignment working differently than it has in the past?

Steve, part of the reason that we like the question mark is because the Known issues follow a Question and Answer format.  

Change image suggestion[edit source]

As the template is for highlighting known issues, I suggest that using an exclamation mark would make more sense than a question mark. --Steve 15:09, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

thanks Steve, for helping with this template.  We are pretty much novices here in Historical Records, in Wiki page creation, have usually just been editing existing pages.  I think that an exclamation mark would work well.  Are you helping Janell create the badge?  I know that she is on vacation till the end of the week. — Preceding unsigned comment added by RobbinsFJ (talk | contribs) 15:46, March 17, 2011 (UTC)

Questions:[edit source]

1.  The template that we are discussing here is the badge, correct?
2.  Would it be possible to have a template for the entire page which would have the headings, TOC, and other segments already in place?   We created a couple of sample pages but they are essentially just text. 

3.  The badge could be embedded at the top of the page template.  We would need to be able to change the title each time to include the name of the collection. 

4.  If a page  template is created...how do we access it?

see, total novices.  :)

Jean, there is a way to create a page template, but what it does is automatically put in the text that you need, so it just becomes that text and you can edit it to be what it needs to be for each page after that.
  1. Create a page named something like "Template:HRKI Outline" - where "HRKI Outline" can be just about anything.
  2. Then when you want to create the page with that as the format, you enter this text on the page: {{subst:HRKI Outline}}, where "HRKI Outline" is whatever you named that new page.
  3. Save the page, and that will enter the text of the template onto the new page, and you can edit the page from there.
Hope that helps... janellv 02:46, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

Alignment issues[edit source]

7 Decembert 2011  - Until recently our badges sat to the right of the text and the text wrapped around it.   We are now seeing the badge sitting above the text with no wrap.  We are using the same badge we always have and can't see that any edits were made to the Learn More pages that would cause this to happen.   Does anyone have any ides on why this would happen and come forth with a possible solution.    Thanks so much — Preceding unsigned comment added by RobbinsFJ (talk | contribs) 18:10, December 7, 2011 (UTC)

The alignment issue that you have noticed with the badges is a general wiki problem effecting the alignment of images and infoboxes placed either to the left or right of paragraphs of text. What needs to happen is for the CSS code to be amended (see forum post about the issue). --Steve (talk| contribs) 17:44, 8 December 2011 (UTC)
