Update of template[edit]

{{Edit request}} Hi,
Could an admin copy the content of Template:Taxonavigation/taxon2 (created for test purposes) into Template:Taxonavigation/taxon (used by {{Taxonavigation}})?

  1. I created a template {{RankNeedsItalic}} to simplify Template:Taxonavigation/taxon. It detects, depending on the taxon rank, whether a taxon name should be put in italic. It corrects some ranks that where not put in italic.
  2. I added a title modificator that will put the title in italic when the rank requires it.

You can see a test of the result in User:Liné1/sandbox. As you can see, now Series are in italic (the result should be the same ;-)).
Thanks in advance Liné1 (talk) 14:41, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

....italic should be used for genus und lower taxons only. Orchi (talk) 09:53, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
Thanks Orchi, I corrected {{RankNeedsItalic}}. Now it is easier as it is centralised. Cheers Liné1 (talk) 11:30, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
Thanks a lot. Yes the protection is a good idea. Cheers Liné1 (talk) 04:36, 14 April 2011 (UTC)


If a category needs italics, shouldn't it look like:

instead of:

This can be changed in this template. --  Docu  at 23:38, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

When adding italic, I tried both and thought that it did not change much. But what you did is perhaps better. Cheers Liné1 (talk) 10:48, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Dear Liné1, hello Rocket000, my galleries show a colon in the title in front of the pagenme now; like " :Orchis ". Can you help please? Cheers. Orchi (talk) 16:48, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
P.S. just I see, that this page is'nt Liné1's talk.
Can you give us an example ? Cheers Liné1 (talk) 16:58, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Orchis. (in Opera browser). Cheers. Orchi (talk) 17:00, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Ok, sorry, the bug is due to the last modification.
Rocket000, could you replace {{DISPLAYTITLE:{{NAMESPACE}}:''{{PAGENAME}}''}} by {{DISPLAYTITLE:{{#if:{{NAMESPACE}}|{{NAMESPACE}}:}}''{{PAGENAME}}''}}
