Minor grammatical nitEdit

The proper noun "WikiProject Architecture" would not normally be expected to take the definite article, "the" as used in this template. This looks like an editing slip-up but not being a participant in this WikiProject I am loath to edit the template myself. 121a0012 (talk) 03:46, 22 December 2007 (UTC)


{{edit protected}} Could you please add the functionality of C-Class and FL-Class? Thanks! §hep¡Talk to me! 05:12, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

  Done, mostly. There isn't a category for FL-Class articles right now, so I've categorized them to Category:List-Class Architecture articles. If this is a problem let me know on my talk page. I also don't see the C-Class being used anywhere, but it might just be that the cat hasn't updated yet. Cheers. --lifebaka (Talk - Contribs) 05:01, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

{{edit protected}} The FL-Class category has now been created. Now, just the template functionality is needed. --Millbrooky (talk) 06:35, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

  Done Keith D (talk) 10:42, 31 July 2008 (UTC)


This template may benefit from being converted to use Template:WPBannerMeta. Any comments or concerns about this? Martin 15:06, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Well, I shall probably go ahead with this over the next few days. Martin 12:04, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
  Done. Let me know of any problems please. Martin 11:40, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Change NOTE_1_IMAGE imageEdit


Could the NOTE_1_IMAGE image be changed from Evolution-tasks-old.png to Clipboard.svg Thanks. -- WOSlinker (talk) 19:11, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

  Done — {{Nihiltres|talk|log}} 19:36, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Please change the Portal imageEdit

{{editprotected}} To: Treasury of Athens at Delphi.jpg. Thank you. Kevin Rutherford (talk) 01:17, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

  Done Ruslik (talk) 17:50, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Could you add FQS?Edit

{{edit protected}} Please add FQS, attention, needs-infobox and comments to this WPBM template, because the NA-Class category has over 1200+ articles in it. Thanks --Funandtrvl (talk) 19:45, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

  Done. Could you create the categories and update the documentation? Thanks, — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 21:59, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Copied from Template talk:WPBannerMeta:

Just a request to add the full parameters to the WP Architecture template. Thanks. --Funandtrvl (talk) 19:48, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Created cats and updated doc. Just noticed that a File-Class cat is now there, which name are we supposed to use, Image or File, because the WPBM is still prompting for Image? Just curious --Funandtrvl (talk) 23:51, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
We might have crossed tracks while I was checking your banner: can you be a bit more specific (it looks OK to me). For the Image/File question, I don't think we have a standard yet! Physchim62 (talk) 23:54, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
Yes, there are now two categories for images under WP Architecture, one that I created using the prompts (Image-Class) and one that MSGJ created later on (File-Class). Since these cats duplicate each other, just wondering which one should be changed to redirect to the other. --Funandtrvl (talk) 00:00, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
I thin this needs a more specific header! Physchim62 (talk) 00:14, 21 April 2009 (UTC) (discussion continued below)
Funandtrvl simply replied in the wrong place. I'll copy this to Template talk:WikiProject Architecture. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 05:14, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

I have now deleted the Image-Class category. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 05:20, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Parameter "aid="?Edit

What is |aid=? No such parameter is documented in {{WPBannerMeta}}, and it isn't documented here either. It sounds redundant with |attention= to me. If it is not documented and justified as some WPArchitecture special need, that cannot be fulfilled except with a custom parameter, it should be removed. — SMcCandlish Talk⇒ ʕ(Õلō Contribs. 19:04, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Task force parameterEdit

A new taskforce for historic homes is being established, per discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Architecture#Country houses subproject. Please add a historic-houses-task-force = yes parameter. Thanks! --ELEKHHT 23:22, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

@Elekhh: I've added the basics at {{WikiProject Architecture/sandbox}} (see this edit) but that is almost certainly insufficient. Quite a lot of the possible parameters used to set up a taskforce parameters are not set, or have been left as default (see Template:WPBannerMeta#Task forces. I've only set up four - |tf 1= |TF_1_LINK= |TF_1_NAME= |TF_1_NESTED= - some of the others won't matter, but you may like to specify what some of them should be. Also, is it correct that the taskforce should be enabled using |historic-houses-task-force=yes - that's not usual, more commonly we would use something shorter, like |historic-houses=yes. --Redrose64 (talk) 10:24, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
@Redrose64: Thanks for the help. I am happy with simplifying the para to |historic-houses=yes, and leaving everything minimal and default for now. I added a few more parameters. I imagine after the basics are set up things can be improved later. --ELEKHHT 10:48, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
Of those, |TF_1_MAIN_CAT=Historic houses articles is fine, and I believe that |TF_1_ASSESSMENT_CAT=Historic houses articles will be as well, although for both of these, the necessary categories will need to be created. But regarding
|tf 1 importance={{{Historic houses-importance}}}
I have two observations: (i) the capitalisation and hyphenation should really match the main yes/no parameter; (ii) there's a missing pipe. I think that
|tf 1 importance={{{historic-houses-importance|}}}
would be better. --Redrose64 (talk) 10:53, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
Sorry for being a bit clumsy, is the first task force I am trying to set up. Could we instead leave out all hyphens? --ELEKHHT 11:04, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
@Redrose64: Actually doesn't matter. I harmonized the two paras per your suggestion. --ELEKHHT 12:37, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
Do you want an image? How about this one   or this one   or this   or  ? --Redrose64 (talk) 14:44, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
@Redrose64: I wanted to leave this part empty and let the taskforce find an image per the usual consensus process. But is also ok to use the first image you suggested as a placeholder. Is there anything else holding us back from implementing this? --ELEKHHT 21:16, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

I have added |historic-houses = yes as a parameter to the wp architecture banner on a few pages as a test (eg Talk:Montacute House, Talk:Barrington Court, Talk:Clevedon Court & Talk:Lytes Cary) but they don't seem to be showing up anywhere. Is this because Category:Historic houses articles hasn't been created yet or am I doing something wrong?— Rod talk 19:53, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

@Rodw: No, it's because {{WikiProject Architecture/sandbox}} hasn't been copied to {{WikiProject Architecture}} yet. --Redrose64 (talk) 20:55, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
  Done Now live, and documentation updated. --Redrose64 (talk) 21:59, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks now working - I don't know if the extra space above "|historic-houses = yes" rather than "|historic-houses=yes" made a difference.— Rod talk 08:27, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
@Rodw: The spacing in a named parameter like |historic-houses=yes is immaterial (see H:T#Parameters). The problem that you experienced following edits like this was because I hadn't yet done this. Edits like this were unnecessary, in fact the extra | symbol is superfluous. A WP:NULLEDIT would have sufficed to bring the categories up to date. --Redrose64 (talk) 09:20, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

I would like to enable the quality categorisations from the main project. To do this I think we need to add "TF_1_QUALITY = yes". --ELEKHHT 02:36, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

  Done you might like to add {{cat class|topic=Historic houses|class=}} to the various category pages that Rodw (talk · contribs) created; remember to set the last parameter to whatever is applicable, e.g. |class=Stub on Category:Stub-Class Historic houses articles. This produces a box with redlinks for any cats that are missing, so those will need creating too. --Redrose64 (talk) 09:24, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
Box added - but I'm unsure what to do for unassessed class.— Rod talk 09:33, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
