Sort key

Please could any of the admins edit this template to allow for a third optional sort key parameter? I believe we'd have to add the code in red (not sure):

[[Category:{{{1}}} texts|{{{3|{{PAGENAME}}}}}]]

Also, what is the second parameter good for? A documentation with examples would help :). Thanks! -- CarlosTalk 13:43, 30 April 2008 (PDT)

Done. I've been too busy to add documentation, but
{{text|XYZ|ABC}}
would result in the banner ABCXYZ text. Notice that the (non-existent) File:XYZ.png does not get linked.
A more typical usage might be
{{text|Quenya|}}
resulting in Quenya text (no flag).

Hi Chuck, thanks for the examples, now it's clear! Is there a way to extend the banner text and still keep the flag? A use for it that comes to my mind is in John Dowland's works, for instance, where we would be able to display "English.png Early Modern English" ( {{Text|English| Early Modern}} ). But perhaps it's too much detail.

cat=no

This template can now be used to include the title and flag on a score page without categorising the page in "Category:Language texts" but it also needs to prevent the page from being categorised in "Category:Texts". Could this change be implemented, please? --Bobnotts talk 10:01, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

Done. (Although I'm not sure if Chuck made it that way on purpose.) —Carlos Email.gif 04:14, 22 September 2009 (UTC)
