Community Wishlist Survey 2017/Editing/Remind users to update TemplateData when template was edited

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Remind users to update TemplateData when template was edited

  • Problem:

If a template is edited, TemplateData can stay outdated without notice.

  • Who would benefit:

Afterall every VE user

  • Proposed solution:

Notify template editor, that he/she should also update TemplateData after editing, removing or adding parameters in template.

  • More comments:
  • Phabricator tickets:



@Dvorapa: As written on Community Wishlist Survey 2017, please narrow your proposals down to three proposals. This is your 4th proposal, if I count correctly. Thanks! --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 15:08, 10 November 2017 (UTC)[reply]

I see, sorry for me, done ✓ All of them are in scope of Czech community, maybe they will be adopted by somebody from Czech community soon. --Dvorapa (talk) 16:28, 10 November 2017 (UTC)[reply]

I agree with the Proposer that the documentation portion of templates needs major work in many instances. Ottawahitech (talk) 14:33, 18 November 2017 (UTC) Please ping me [reply]

This request doesn't seem great. At some point we will have MCR, which will obviate the need to go look at separate pages in most/many cases--instead, you'll see another editor for the TemplateData and will presumably update it at the same time as you make the template-proper-changing edit. --Izno (talk) 04:00, 19 November 2017 (UTC)[reply]
