Link templates Edit

I was thinking we should make the icon templates link to the game-specific pages instead of the disambig (templates H, M, A, D, W). If possible, we could make the templates automatically link to the game-specific pages based on the infobox they're used in (since those templates are mostly used in infoboxes, like {{OblivionSpells}}).

Another method would be to pipe the templates (like {{M|Oblivion}}), which shouldn't take too long to do since they're mostly used in templates. --Shockstorm (talk) 00:57, April 30, 2016 (UTC)

I agree that linking to disambig pages is a bit silly. I also hate templates you have to provide games as arguments. I'm hoping there might be some neat way of automating this process without having to stray too far from the simplicity of smacking {{w}} into some article. Our biggest challenge here is detecting what game this is for. I'm hoping lua has some way of setting a global variable for a page that can make the template identify what game it is being used for. I'll be sandboxing this idea for a while before deciding on what approach to take. — Flightmare @Wikia (talk) 14:03, May 1, 2016 (UTC)

Portable infoboxes Edit

Hey Flight, is there a way to keep the "Have an image of <name>? Then please upload it!" on infoboxes that have been updated to the portable format? For example on {{MorrowindIngredients}}, if an article doesn't have an image (such as this), it doesn't have that message. Since it's something that's usually on infoboxes to encourage users to upload images, it would be good if the new infoboxes had them too. —Atvelonis (talk) 19:04, May 6, 2016 (UTC)

Yes there is, looks like I forgot to add it to ingredients though. — Flightmare @Wikia (talk) 20:25, May 6, 2016 (UTC)
