News templates[edit source]

Hi Sophivorus, thanks for your message and welcome offer of possible help. Just to let you have seen it and will hopefully reply early next week. Kind regards Philralph (talk) 11:01, 12 September 2020 (UTC)

Hi, as far as I can see the only templates I currently use & need that are listed on unused templates are Template:CASwiki invite - Template:CASwikinewpage - Template:CASthanks . I've added links to these on my user page. Hope that helps. Let me know if you need any more info, Philralph (talk) 17:24, 14 September 2020 (UTC)

MOST templates[edit source]

Thanks - I appreciate what you are trying to do - but the templates I am using for the group make it so we only need to update once -- for use on the main page and other places can you use the sub category templates...e.g. just the one for 2020 rather than hard code the entire category?--Joshua Pearce (talk) 13:37, 30 September 2020 (UTC)

That is fine - but how do I do the same for my own pages rather than use templates? e.g. I want the contents of completed projects (or some of them) to show up at the MOST main page (which is a category), the project page (also a category), and my personal page...- Joshua Pearce (talk) 13:46, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
Thanks - I tried {{Excerpt|Category:MOST completed projects and publications|2021 Completed Projects & Publications}} - with no luck - please let me know what I am doing wrong - Joshua Pearce (talk) 14:05, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
Working nicely now -- thanks! --Joshua Pearce (talk) 14:38, 30 September 2020 (UTC)

User infobox image size[edit source]

Hi, is there a way to reduce the image size? Philralph (talk) 10:11, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Echo y Village pump[edit source]

@Emilio: ¡Hola! Hoy instalé la mw:Extension:Echo que introduce notificaciones que se disparan en diversas circunstancias. Una de ellas es cuando te mencionan en cualquier página, lo cual permite "llamar" o "pingear" a los usuarios y facilita enormemente la comunicación. Para simplificar aún más el asunto, hice la Template:Re que permite llamar a los usuarios con la sintaxis {{Re|Emilio}}, como acabo de hacer en este mensaje. :-)

Además, empecé a rediseñar Appropedia:Village pump. Por ahora solo archivé las conversaciones viejas, pero también inicié la Template:Village pump que espero pronto reemplazará a todo el encabezado monstruoso que hay actualmente al comienzo de la village pump. Todavía faltan varios enlaces y cuestiones, pero me vendría bien un comentario sobre qué elementos no pueden faltar y cuáles otros sí son prescindibles. ¡Abrazo!

Propuesta de diseño[edit source]

¡Hola Felipe! Estuve jugando con Poncho e hice esto. Ahí mismo está el CSS, estoy usando un font variable que no es el mismo que la diseñadora propuso pero que tiene una licencia mucho más abierta. También añadí una sola regla para darle aire al banner. Por último, añadí uno de los íconos de prueba a Appropriate_technology. ¿Qué te parece?

@Emilio: Hola! Me parecieron excelentes tus cambios. Los implementé del siguiente modo: el padding extra del header me pareció una mejora al skin en general, de modo que lo incorporé al código fuente del mismo (upstream); los cambios de estilo a los títulos son específicos a este sitio, de modo que los incorporé a MediaWiki:Poncho.css y los cambios al banner son específicos a esa plantilla, de modo que los incorporé a Template:Banner/styles.css (poner el CSS de las plantillas en su /styles.css es importante porque de lo contrario no carga bien en dispositivos móviles). Saludos! Sophivorus (talk) 14:33, 14 December 2020 (UTC)

order on publication pages[edit source]

Hi - I noticed you were dropping the source for our paper related project pages to the bottom - would be it be ok to leave them as is - as for the paper pages the main thing is the paper itself...and then for those that do have hardware involved we always have the links to the CAD, BOM, etc. up there as well.--Joshua Pearce (talk) 15:21, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

@J.M.Pearce Hi! Yes, sorry, I just moved them back to the top. While we're at it, notice that when hovering over a link to one of your papers (for example Sponsored Libre Research Agreements to Create Free and Open Source Software and Hardware) the content of the initial header is shown. Google also has trouble figuring out the right preview to show, see this link. If you want to fix this, we should first convert your headers (Template:MOST and Template:Pearce-pubs) to use one of the standard header templates, such as Template:Header or Template:Notice. But that is not enough. In order for the previews to display correctly, there should be some text without any heading. For example, we could delete the Source and Abstract headings (just the headings, not the content) so that the source and the abstract become the text without heading. Also, we should consider developing an infobox for your articles, to display the keywords, DOI number, and other meta data in a more structured format. What do you think? Sophivorus (talk) 16:03, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
Thank you! Yes let's do this right -- can you let me know what you need to fix the MOST, and Pearce-pubs templates - and then we can move the source-abstract above other headings. Interested in what you have in mind for an article infobox too. --Joshua Pearce (talk) 18:23, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
@J.M.Pearce Awesome! I think something like Template:Pearce-pubs/sandbox should do. Check out the documentation at Template:Notice for styling options and let me know your thoughts! Sophivorus (talk) 13:22, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
@J.M.Pearce Hi again! I just did some changes to Sponsored Libre Research Agreements to Create Free and Open Source Software and Hardware replacing your standard templates for Template:Pearce-pubs/sandbox, Template:MOST/sandbox and the new Template:Google translate, and removing the Source and Abstract headings. I'm still working on it (tomorrow I'll finish) but if you want to share some thoughts or feedback already, please do so. Cheers! Sophivorus (talk) 15:43, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

New templates[edit source]

Hi -- I saw the new templates you were working on -- I think the google translate one looks great and is ready to go - should probably integrate it into the {{MOST}} one. The MOST one - can we make the Husky image bigger and make it a hyperlink that leads back to the main category page? Same with the publications template - it looks good - but it would be better to have the book image a little larger and link back to it specifically -- Thanks --Joshua Pearce (talk) 17:03, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

@J.M.Pearce Hi, I'm glad you're liking the progress so far! Today I did another round of improvements, check out Template:MOST/sandbox, Template:Pearce-pubs/sandbox and Sponsored Libre Research Agreements to Create Free and Open Source Software and Hardware, especially on mobile devices! I added some parameters to Template:Notice to set the size and a link for the image. Note however that because of usability reasons, when a link is set for an image, the image is hidden from view on mobile devices. If you want it to display on mobile devices, you'll have to give up the link. Next I'll try to tackle the infobox, let me know your thoughts! Sophivorus (talk) 15:04, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
Now all of the templates look great on a computer - for the mobile - it looks like both the image and the link disappear. Is there anyway to keep the computer version as it is - and for the mobile choose one or the other? --Joshua Pearce (talk) 16:08, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
@J.M.Pearce Hi! Do you mean displaying a clickable image while on desktop, and displaying a non-clickable image or a plain link while on mobile? If so, then I'm afraid it's quite tricky and I don't quite see the way to do it yet. In the meantime, maybe we can repeat the link in the body of the templates, so that users can find it while on mobile? I mean something like what I just did at Template:Pearce-pubs/sandbox? Sophivorus (talk) 13:22, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
@J.M.Pearce: Hi again, hope you're well! I've done a first version of the infobox I mentioned earlier, check it out at Sponsored Libre Research Agreements to Create Free and Open Source Software and Hardware, especially on mobile devices! I've called it Template:Infobox paper for now, but let me know if "publication" or "article" would be a more appropriate term for your work. If you check out the code you'll notice it contains a call to Template:Cite journal to generate the citation code, but also adds some extra feature like keywords and SDGs. The nice thing about infoboxes is that once all relevant pages use them, we can easily link to related content, add semantic markup and do all sorts of magic by editing only a few pages. Looking forward to your reply! Sophivorus (talk) 14:34, 25 January 2021 (UTC)
@J.M.Pearce Hi again! You probably noticed that User:PedroK has been adding databoxes to some of your MOST pages. I trust it's welcome work, but I asked him to pause until we finish our talk here. May I ask you to take a fresh look at Sponsored Libre Research Agreements to Create Free and Open Source Software and Hardware and share your thoughts? Notice that I've phased out Template:Google translate since the automatic translations are now included in Template:Page data. Looking forward to your reply!
