Simplification[edit]

Please change from

<small class="plainlinks">[{{fullurl:Template:{{{1}}}|action=edit}} {{{2|+/-}}}]</small>

to

<small>[[Special:EditPage/Template:{{{1}}}|{{{2|+/-}}}]]</small>

This removes the unneeded use of a parser function in favor of the built in Special:EditPage. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 02:59, 11 April 2020 (UTC)

@DannyS712: case 2 fails, and I am here in passing, so will leave that resolution until later. I wonder whether case 2 is even required, and a check of usage probably is worthwhile.  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:10, 11 April 2020 (UTC)
I'm not sure that case 2 is useful, since it was just a number with no relation to the target --DannyS712 (talk) 04:17, 11 April 2020 (UTC)
Usefulness isn't my concern, the template's use and function as advertised is so. Without the evidence that I am not breaking usage, I am leaving the template as is until that evidence is clearer. We shouldn't break functionality for no benefit.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:09, 11 April 2020 (UTC)
