Template talk:Legend

From ChoralWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

All the icons in this template are linked to the "How do I download files" help page. For example:

{{filepath:Error.gif}} = '''SCORE ERROR'''   {{SERVER}}/index.php/Help:How_do_I_download_files%3F

Is this intentional? I'm not sure it makes sense for all icons.

Max, I think Raf did this ages ago in response to some emails he got asking why the the links weren't working. People were confusing the actual score icons next to the CPDL # etc with the ones in the legend box. --Bobnotts talk 12:33, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
Wouldn't it make more sense for them to link to the appropriate pages: for example Choralwiki:LilyPond? Richard Mix (talk) 21:33, 24 February 2017 (UTC)
Are you speaking of the icons in the Legend, or on the {{Legend}} page? The new legend, about to be implemented, has no links attached to the icons in either place (except Help, of course). — Barry Johnston (talk) 02:17, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

"Template & Code"

I'm not sure whether the icon template arguments were meant to be identical to file extensions and have gotten a little bit out of date, or whether another column is needed: I had to resort to Google to make a guess at what to replace {{pdf}} with for CPDL no 55144, a .musx type file.

You're right, the table needs another column, which I have added. CPDL 55144 should be coded F14 or F15, but I can't determine which. — Barry Johnston (talk) 02:10, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, looks good, and made it very easy for me to figure out what just went wrong at Christus, Op. 97 (Felix Mendelssohn) (the add-edition form wouldn't accept a blank in the pdf field). Since xml is a 'disapproved' format though, I wonder if the icon & its code should change to mxl? Richard Mix (talk) 21:51, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
