If you read the Wiki Guide help page I pointed you at earlier, it goes through exactly how to do that.

Hello,

As Stephen has said (and linked to), the guides are a useful place to start. I've found when doing several pages at a time that the simplest way is to alter the URL from your C229 page, or to search for "C209 (Suffolk)", and it'll give you the option to create the page.

The content you've added to the C229 page is exactly what we're looking for, thanks.

The reason I linked to the C10 page was not to make changes to it, but to use the "Edit" view to see the templates used in its structure and categorisation. You can edit the page and copy and paste them to your C229 and C209 pages. I'll do the C229 one to show you....

First, there is the Routebox template, e.g.

Code: Select all

{{Routebox
 | number        = C200
 | type          = class3
 | lat           =  52.195316  
 | lon           = 0.074709  
 | zoom          = 12  
 | trace          = user/c2R/C200_Cambs.osm  
 | from          = Coton
 | to            = Grantchester
 | via           = 
 | authority     = Cambridgeshire Council
 | county        = Cambridgeshire
 | km            = 4.26
 | formernumbers = 
 | image         = Grantchester Rd - Geograph - 3846296.jpg
 | caption       = Grantchester Road and the M11 exit sliproad (on the right)
 | meets         = [[C202 (Cambridgeshire)|C202]], [[C201 (Cambridgeshire)|C201]], [[A603]], [[M11]]
 | gridref_from  = TL410589
 | gridref_to    = TL431557
 | outline       = {{Non Primary Custom|C200|Coton - Grantchester}}
}}
I've put in some data, e.g. the authority and county, but the more data you can provide here, the richer the article

I've then added a disambiguation link so that the user can navigate to other pages:

Code: Select all

{{Dab|the Class III road numbered C229 maintained by [[Suffolk Council]]|other roads numbered C229|C229}}
I've then used '''to make the number bold''' and [[to wikilink to other articles]], such as the A12.

I've then added the Navbox and Rating templates, to aid categorisation:

Code: Select all

{{Navbox|cat=Suffolk Council Class III Roads}}

{{Rating|2}}     <!-- Article Rating, 1-5 stars. See [[Wiki:Article Rating]] for more details -->
Hope this helps

I have now created two more pages for C209 & C214 but they do not appear in the list Suffolk Council (Class III roads) - how can I do this?

Also on opening the pages this no box on the right where "to" "From" "Via" etc appears on my C229 page

If you read the help page I linked to it tells you how to fix this lot. Have you been able to look at it?

One of the issues is that you're missing the Routebox on the new pages. C2r put one in for you on the C229 (Suffolk) page.

There's a whole section on the Routebox section of a page.

If you start at the top of the help page given, read down it, it gives examples of each of the main parts and tells you about what they all do. I suggest you look at it a section at a time, follow that part, then if you get into problems or don't understand it, feel free to ask.

It's always best to go through the guide on how to do it, then we can help answer better if you ask more specific questions.

Yes, that's a good start. You'll need "class3" in the "type" tag for all the clever categorisation to work, and the nasty "invalid type" error message to go away.

If you put [[ and ]] around a road number, like [[A1120]], it will turn it into a link. The help article also mentions how to get the gridreferences for "gridref_from" and "gridref_to" as well as the latitude and longitude for a nice map from SABRE Maps.

The former B1268 has now become C1268, according to Redcar and Cleveland Council, and is signed as such at the Four Lanes End junction with A174, formerly B1267 at that point.
Just looked on Google Streetview and, erm, it appears that it's been like that since 2009...
My old posts are just downright embarrassing.

From the SABRE Wiki: B1268 :

The B1268 is a short B-road in north Yorkshire, now half as long as it was originally.

It starts on the A173 at Upleatham Bridge, between Guisborough and Skelton. From here it heads roughly north into Upleatham then roughly east to meet the A174 at Corngrave.

This has been the eastern end of the B1268 since 2000 when the A174 was rerouted along the
