Recycled [ edit ]

This template name has been recycled and is currently a navigational template for articles related to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. At present, there is no limitation on which articles can be include. The only guidelines are that they be related to the Church in some way and that they be placed in one of the existing groupings. if the "other" grouping becomes too crowded, new groupings may be created and articles moved up. --NThurston 16:41, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

That green is horrendous. -- 03:38, 11 May 2007 (UTC)
Change it to something better (but not to light blue). --NThurston 17:30, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Progress on linking listed pages [ edit ]

Verified that all links on this template in the History and Beliefs sections have this template on them as of 6 Nov --Trödel 23:34, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

What is wrong with this template [ edit ]

Is it just my browser or is this template a total garbled mess? It didn't used to be...--Descartes1979 (talk) 05:46, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Subpictures [ edit ]

Can we remove the little picture for each subsection? It's just too much for my taste. --Eustress (talk) 15:29, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Mod [ edit ]

Per no response, I removed pictures (per above) and changed the template to a more discrete, simple design (similar to Template:Catholicism). I also split apart leadership and organizations, as there was nothing about the Relief Society, Primary, etc.

The template still needs to include info about humanitarian efforts, etc. --Eustress (talk) 14:16, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

I also changed the picture to reflect the church's name (a pic of Christ) instead of the SLC temple. --Eustress (talk) 14:17, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Collapsed as default [ edit ]

The vast majority of templates are collapsed as default. I added the "|state = collapsed" line to the template so that it is collapsed as default. (Taivo (talk) 04:45, 14 December 2009 (UTC))

I make a minor change to "| state = {{{state|<includeonly>collapsed</includeonly><noinclude>uncollapsed</noinclude>}}} " By doing it this way the default is collapsed, but you can choose to change it on the page using "state=" and on the template it shows as uncollapsed for ease of editing. In the end it won't change the default, unless someone changes it intentionally on a page. ----ARTEST4ECHO (talk) 15:59, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Image in navbox [ edit ]

An image is not the same as an icon, at least in the context of WP:ICONDECORATION. I believe WP:NAV provides for the use of images in navboxes. —Eustress talk 23:38, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Yes a useful image/icon. This is pure decoration Gnevin (talk) 10:49, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

Color of Title Bar [ edit ]

Outlandish colors for template bars just to get attention are inappropriate. I've removed the distinctive coloration (especially the garish attention-grabber used by the last anon editor) to make this template in line with those of other religions, for example, Template:Catholicism. Indeed, I've noticed that most religions have either a bottom navbox or a sidebox. Mormonism has both, so it's already being overmarked. Distinctive colors are especially inappropriate in that situation. --Taivo (talk) 18:23, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

Portal badges [ edit ]

Recently the badge for Portal:Book of Mormon was added to this template, along with a variety of other LDS related articles. This was discussed here. I agree with the feeling that the BOM portal doesn't relate to every LDS movement article, only those for which it is pertinent. The LDS template might be used on all LDS movement articles, but does the BOM feature prominently in all cases? Should all articles on Christianity have the portal to the Bible? If other LDS related portals exist (D&C, PGP, Joseph Smith, Utah, etc) should they all be included because they are related? (I just noticed that the BOM portal badge is now removed again, but I'll leave this here in case further discussion continues.) ——Rich jj (talk) 15:28, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

What is this?
