Template-protected edit request on 10 November 2019 [ edit ]

Enhance template to include the Azores among Dependencies and other entities. Variations of the template already appear in articles such as Coat of arms of the Azores and Flag of the Azores.

(And for comparison, consider Hymn of the Azores is included in the Template:National anthems of Europe.) — HipLibrarianship talk 23:51, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

@Hiplibrarianship: Done.  Not done:. Sorry, I got the previous discussions out of order when I originally answered this request. The current consensus seems to be to limit this template to entities recognized by ISO 3166-1, which the Azores are not. --Ahecht (TALK

Artsakh is already listed in the template, but not linked. Could an editor please assist, as an Index of Artsakh-related articles does exist. Index of Artsakh-related articles Many thanks! Archives908 (talk) 13:39, 26 April 2020 (UTC)

@Archives908: {{Europe topic}} is a general template used to build more specific templates. I guess you refer to the "Index of Asia-related articles" navigation template on some articles like Index of Azerbaijan-related articles#See also. It is made with {{Europe topic|Index of|-related articles}} which automatically links Index of the Republic of Artsakh -related articles. I have created a redirect to Index of Artsakh-related articles. I have also made a fix [1] to {{Asia related articles index}} to link the article directly when that template is used.

Thank you, it is very much appreciated!Archives908 (talk) 14:43, 26 April 2020 (UTC)

Why is Kosovo treated differently than other states with limited recognition? There is a #ifexist test which will hide Kosovo (probably in the absence of link), however it is the only state to be treated this way and all other countries and states are, shown albeit with a red link. This seems to come from this edit, which I suggest reverting. I see no reason to treat Kosovo differently. Place Clichy (talk) 11:18, 11 May 2020 (UTC)

 Done I have reverted this change. The existence check might be a good idea, but we should probably treat all countries in that group consistently. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 12:33, 11 May 2020 (UTC)

I would like to fix the link for the Bosnian government in the template, as is it seems that is it is linked as Government of Bosnia and Herzegovina and not Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina. If I can not edit it, than it would be nice if someone else did it. Kirbapara (talk) 14:43, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

This is not needed. Government of Bosnia and Herzegovina redirects to Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Moreover, this template is automated in such a way that it takes the wikilink of "Government of <country>", so adding an additional exception for a single country would just be unnecessarily complicated.

The 2021 in Ireland article has just been created. I would like the new article to be added on the template. Thanks. — Edl-irishboy (talk) 17:57, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

This is a flexible template that doesn't by itself link to specific articles. Article links should be generated automatically if the template is used correctly. What page are you noticing a link is not appearing on? CMD (talk) 18:23, 31 December 2020 (UTC)
@Edl-irishboy: I saw the navbox at the bottom of 2021 in Ireland had a red link to 2021 in the Republic of Ireland. I have redirected it to 2021 in Ireland. Note however that other articles in Category:2021 in Europe like 2021 in Germany use {{Year in Europe|2021}}. It automatically links a "Decade in " or "History of" article if there is no 2021 article for a country. PrimeHunter (talk) 19:26, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

If Israel is missing, there are two separators between Ireland and Italy, ("Ireland - - Italy"), this extra separator should be removed. -> ("Ireland - Italy") Bogger (talk) 16:48, 17 January 2021 (UTC) Bogger (talk) 16:48, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

Hi, can you point to a page where this is happening? It doesn't show like that for me on the base template. CMD (talk) 17:00, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
@Bogger: Also name your browser, and your skin at Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-rendering. The template does produce an asterisk alone on a line, resulting in the html <li class="mw-empty-elt"></li>. It doesn't have any effect in the default Vector skin in any of my five browsers but in timeless and modern I see two centered dots in Firefox. PrimeHunter (talk) 17:27, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
Marriage in the Republic of Ireland, appears in chrome, only when logged in. Timeless skin Bogger (talk) 18:39, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
I also see it there in Timeless. A simpler example:
* A
* C
This produces:
  • A
  • C
I see two dots in Timeless. PrimeHunter (talk) 19:53, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
 Not done: please make your requested changes to the template's sandbox first; see WP:TESTCASES. Elliot321 (talk | contribs) 00:35, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
What is this?
