Template talk:About

Comma as well as "and" [ edit ]

This needs to support || or |,| as input to generate a comma, as well as presently-supported |and| to generate the word "and", so that this:

{{About|humans as a species|other uses|Human (disambiguation)||Humanity (virtue)||Human nature|and|Human condition}}

works.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼ 

Period after text= directive [ edit ]

I notice {{about}} doesn't automatically include a period when you use the text= directive (eg. see Cyclometer), but {{distinguish}} does (eg. see FIBA Stanković Continental Champions' Cup). Is this deliberate or an oversight? Miracle Pen (talk) 20:37, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 4 July 2020 [ edit ]

Table field defaultOptions.namespace is never used, so it can be dropped: Special:Diff/833407229/965983473. Note, that table defaultOptions is transferred into table options, which is then used: options.sectionString, options.PageType, options.aboutForm, and options.otherText. Unit tests have been fixed. See also Template:About/testcases, where sandbox has been switched to use Module:About/sandbox. —⁠andrybak (talk) 16:02, 4 July 2020 (UTC)

Indeed, namespace is not obviously used in this template. @Nihiltres: since I know you've done some work on these modules, can you look this one over?--Izno (talk) 14:14, 9 July 2020 (UTC)
@Izno: It's a leftover from the removal of the module's namespace features (in favour of use of Module:Pagetype) in revision 833407229, and should be removed as such. I'll make the change momentarily. {{Nihiltres |talk |edits}} 13:57, 14 July 2020 (UTC)
