The talk page


I've been using this new gizmo on some of the Scottish Island pages and noticed two things. Firstly it doesn't seem to appear unless there are images in the gallery bit of the navbox, and secondly it only displays roads from the Category. WRT the latter, it might be useful for the ferries to pop up too, although I appreciate that a line has to be drawn somewhere! Rileyrob 17:08, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Ah, that's the way I wrote the original version before Jeni rolled it into the main navbox code. It's meant to be just roads, as if we have ferries, someone would want crossings, or junctions, or something else. The original idea was to simply add a section to the routebox that reflected the fact that we had a section for numerically nearby roads, but not geographically nearby roads.

On the subject of {navbox|nearby}, it doesn't show up if there are no photos of the road. Can you look at it when you've got 5? Ta! Steven 19:48, 2 June 2010 (UTC)


Good to see a return of Jenibot. Can you get it to put missing road |cat= templates in there - looking at B roads, mostly. Si404 18:44, 12 October 2011 (BST)

I'll have a look at the code later to see what I can knock together :) Jeni (talk) 18:48, 12 October 2011 (BST)

<embedvideo> tag

Do you know if this tag is used? It doesn't work in MediaWiki 1.20 so my current proposal is to comment it out. Ritchie333 10:25, 9 May 2013 (BST)

Can you remind me where this is used please? Sorry, I'm mobile for a couple of days so can't easily check! Jeni (talk) 10:31, 9 May 2013 (BST)
I don't know of any pages that use it - all I know is that when I try and upgrade the wiki to v1.20 it crashes in this extension. The entire documentation I have reads "This control was once used to put videos on the wiki, but I don’t think it works anymore." I think it's reasonable to assume it's dead.

Comment it out... What's the worst that could happen? ;-) Jeni (talk) 10:35, 9 May 2013 (BST)
This? Ritchie333 10:50, 9 May 2013 (BST)


I have been into Fosse Way and put in the new sections formatting. I hope that's OK. GeorgeEvans aka Lez.
