FDC proposal/Program should not be a container template


One of the most infuriating thing I find with the APG forms is how {{FDC proposal/Program}} is a container template − the all content is supposed to go in the |overview= parameter. This disallows − probably among other things − one of the most useful features there is when it comes to editing long documents, section editing.

On User:Jean-Frédéric/Sandbox, I have shown how using two templates − one header and one footer − allows the same formatting without losing section editing. I would strongly suggest altering the form preload Grants:APG/Proposal form preload/7. I will probably be bold and do it myself unless there is opposition.

Hi Jean-Fred, I'm really sorry that the APG forms are frustrating. You are welcome to go ahead and adjust the preload as you suggest; I don't think it will break anything. :) thanks for being bold and pitching in here. Warmly KLove (WMF) (talk) 16:27, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the swift answer KLove (WMF)! I went ahead and changed the preload. Cheers, Jean-Fred (talk) 20:22, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
Sounds good, my friend! KLove (WMF)
