Template talk:Cite journal
Todo note: This should be updated with the changes that were made to the source template on enwiki over the last several years. See e.g the result of  (missing support for the "chapter" parameter etc.). Regards, Tbayer (WMF) (talk) 06:02, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
- And Guillaume just took care of this, thanks a lot!
- Now it should be decided what to do with the links to ISBN, PMID, ISSN etc. that the template generates in its current version - e.g. Research:Newsletter/2015/May#References suddenly contains a lot of red links now. Soft redirects to enwiki like done earlier for Digital object identifier? Same with Template:Cite conference and ISBN. Regards, Tbayer (WMF) (talk) 22:34, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
- Tilman: You're welcome! I was going to argue for linking directly to the appropriate articles on the English Wikipedia (because it didn't really make sense to me to have soft redirects) but then I realized that that would require editing the Lua module(s). We probably don't want to do that, to keep maximum compatibility with future updates, so I agree that soft redirects are probably the best solution. I'm happy to create them.

- Yes, I agree that direct interwiki links to the original target (e.g. [[w:arXiv|arXiv]] instead of [[arXiv]]) are preferable. Unfortunately I don't know how to implement that right now, so I'm creating a few more soft redirects now as a workaround. Regards, Tbayer (WMF) (talk) 21:36, 7 July 2018 (UTC)
