Thin space[edit]

Using <small>&#160;</small> is a kludge, putting it mildly, but the proper &thinsp; is translated to UTF-8 by the server on the fly, and it doesn't work with old browsers. The code column in the example shows this effect - there is of course no such thing as a monospaced &thinsp;, neither emulated nor real.

Another trick used by {{Tlx}} is <tt>&#124;</tt> for the pipe symbol (vertical bar), a monospaced | adjacent to other text is better visible in the output for proportional fonts. I hope you like it, it's not ideal for text mode browsers. -- Omniplex 21:57, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

1st parameter[edit]

{{Editprotected}}

The 1st parameter had a self-reference as default in 2006, and supported localized Template namespaces. That was lost resulting in gibberish as first line on the template page itself. Please fix…

old

Template:{{{1|}}}|{{{1|}}}

new

{{ns:Template}}:{{{1|Tlx}}}|{{{1|Tlx}}}

…in the first line. –Be..anyone (talk) 23:08, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, thanks! — Revi 11:16, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

works for me[edit]

@Peteforsyth: does everything as it should, seven parameters, new SISTER feature, no nonsense even if it used to be technically interesting like Patrick's subst concept, stamped as works for me + omniplex representing this long dead entity. Sync'ed with d: and mw:, for c: an update request is already registered. –Be..anyone (talk) 23:31, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Portability[edit]

{{editprotected}}

Please replace the first line …

{{[[{{{SISTER|}}}{{ns:Template}}:{{{1|Tlx}}}|{{{1|Tlx}}}]]<!--

… by a portable version …

{{[[{{#if:{{{SISTER|}}}|{{{SISTER}}}Template|{{ns:Template}}}}:{{{1|Tlx}}}|{{{1|Tlx}}}]]<!--

… working also on Wikis with other names for the template namespace.

I've already fixed dewiki, mediawikwiki, and wikidata. –Be..anyone (talk) 03:04, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Done. —MarcoAurelio 09:18, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
