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)[reply]

1st parameter[edit]


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…





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

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

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)[reply]



Please replace the first line …


… by a portable version …


… 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)[reply]

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


Please replace the current template code with what's in Template:Tlx/sandbox. This will apply <code>...</code> style, to match Template:Tnull, and match Template:Tlx at en.wikipedia and other sites (lots of them) that borrowed the code from there. It also implements a |plain=y, so that a wrapper with this parameter can be set up at Template:Tlp, to do same thing as w:en:Template:Tlp, i.e. to do the same thing as {{tlx}} but without monospaced code markup.  — SMcCandlish ¢ >ʌⱷ҅ʌ<  14:26, 13 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]
