Template needs fixing[edit]

Today the categories for paintings were renamed from X## Paintings to ##th century paintings. When I looked into changing Template:Paintingcat I found that it used some template magic I have never before messed around with and that I'm not comfortable changing. Could you please make the necessary changes so that the year categories end up in the correct location? I have placed below an overview of the changes. Thanks. Siebrand 14:47, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

Auto cat → overcat[edit]

in files through [[Category:{{#expr: ({{{1}}} - {{{1}}} mod 10) / 10 + 1}}{{#switch:{{#expr: ({{{1}}} - {{{1}}} mod 10) / 10 + 1}}|21=st|th}} century paintings]] is a very bad idea. I would like to remove it as files get unnecessarily overloaded w/cat., see Image:Boeyermans-antwerp.jpg. You know, I was working the Category:17th century paintings to eliminate it (decades or year) but the inclusion of this template is not productive with it. This template is useful in all other aspects, though. Thanks for creating. --Mattes (talk) 02:30, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

I have deleted [[Category:{{#expr: ({{{1}}} - {{{1}}} mod 10) / 10 + 1}}{{#switch:{{#expr: ({{{1}}} - {{{1}}} mod 10) / 10 + 1}}|21=st|th}} century paintings]] because it is not useful --Mattes (talk) 10:15, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
