Only says "birth" even if also death-info[edit]

The following:

{{Creator
 | Name              = Fortuné Méaulle
 | Birthdate         = 1844-04-11
 | Birthloc          = Angers
 | Deathyear         = 1901
 | Deathloc          = 
}}

displays as:

Fortuné Méaulle (1844–1901) Link back to Creator infobox template

Collapsible class[edit]

As file page content is available on all projects, then you might want to use classes that are available on all projects, e.g. mw-collapsible instead of collapsible. It's design is probably less flexible, but at least it would work everywhere. 90.190.114.172 20:10, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

Symbol keep vote.svg Agree however I do not know much about different collapsable classes. Can someone more familiar with it try to create one in the sandbox? --Jarekt (talk) 18:23, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

User name parameter[edit]

Can we add a |user name= parameter, for cases where the creator is also active on Commons, or on a sister project? Andy Mabbett (talk) 16:06, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

I think that would be such a rare case that it would be more easily handled by adding username to description field. Some users created their own Creator templates but it is mostly discouraged unless they meet Wikipedia notability criteria (see Commons:Creator) and very few of us do. --Jarekt (talk) 18:21, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

parameter and workshop is broken[edit]

e.g.File:Titian and workshop - The Vendramin Family, venerating a Relic of the True Cross - Google Art Project.jpg--Oursana (talk) 11:39, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Oursana, It seems fine to me. Is it still broken for you? --Jarekt (talk) 03:40, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
Hi Jarekt, this and other files are broken for about 10 days: Template:2} und Werkstatt (1490–1576) ; I have vector and it looks the same in Safari or Firefox.--Oursana (talk) 21:25, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
I see the German version was broken. I Pictogram voting keep.svg Fixed it now, see here--Jarekt (talk) 04:14, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
Jarekt, I apologize, I caused it myself. I didn't remember I had been busy there and forgot the way back. Many thanks--Oursana (talk) 11:08, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
Not a big problem (to non-German speakers), but I thought it was a little funny how it worked out. --Jarekt (talk) 11:32, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Translation[edit]

I want to make a little fix to the galician translation of this template but I can't find where, could anybody tell me where is the galician translation? Thanks!, --Elisardojm (talk) 22:00, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

It is on Translatewiki. Go to https://translatewiki.net/wiki/User:Jarekt and look for messages starting with "wm-license-creator-". --Jarekt (talk) 17:49, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
I can't find it there... I want to fix the text of the "Authority" parameter..., I want to change from "Controle de autoridade" to "Control de autoridades"... Thanks, --Elisardojm (talk) 18:51, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
Oh that one was done by {{Authority control tag}} the old version was defaulting to Spanish.--Jarekt (talk) 19:12, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks!, --Elisardojm (talk) 20:46, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
