Seems broken. --Pmsyyz 07:36, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

It works fine on Main Page. Raul654 07:54, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
No, the English main page uses {{Motd2}}. This is supposed to be like {{Potd}}, for use on user pages. Where it is used on the Turkish main page, it is broken. --Pmsyyz 08:23, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
Ahh, I see the problem. When I designed this template, I envision that the text (such as Template:Motd-en/03-27) would be the link you click on. If there is ANYTHING wiki-link in the text there (such as the link to Antonio Vivaldi) this template will be broken. So either we tell people not to use this template, we make it a point not to link anything in teh descriptions, someone needs to modify this template to work differently.

Since this template is not used much yet, how about we just get it unprotected so we can work on it? I think there is a template to request unprotection on en. Is there one on Commons? --Pmsyyz 08:49, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
(I'm an admin) unprotected. Raul654 08:53, 27 March 2006 (UTC)


Can we incorporate the thumbtime parameter for videos here somehow?--Kozuch (talk) 07:03, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

I see, there is an extra template for that already... it is only hidden in the "Advanced options" menu...--Kozuch (talk) 07:17, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Macedonian for "No media of the day today"[edit]

{{editprotected}} Hello. Can I have this inserted as the Macedonian translation of "No media of the day today".

|mk=Нема снимка за денес.

Thanks. --B. Jankuloski (talk) 02:47, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

✓ Done, thanks for helping (it would be better if we could get some new media to be featured, though...) Jean-Fred (talk) 11:03, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

Link to media description page[edit]

There should be an easy way to access the file description page − clicking on it does not work, obviously. Any idea how to nively integrate this ? Jean-Fred (talk) 15:54, 11 June 2011 (UTC)


{{Edit protected}}

Please replace everything between the noinclude tags with {{documentation}}. I've already moved the relevant bits to Template:Motd/doc (including the categories). Rd232 (talk) 22:43, 3 July 2011 (UTC)


Commons:Main page templates seems to be outdated. It seems for example that the "help" links are not localized via eg Template:MotdHelp (de), but via Template:Motd/help/de. I'm not sure about the others, but eg the "download" link doesn't seem used at all (and if it's needed, we have {{int:download}}). Can anyone clarify? Rd232 (talk) 20:19, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
