Hi! I want to put in langswitches at Template:Us states so the names of the states will display differently if the user's language preference is set to Spanish (i.e. Spanish names of states display instead of English names) - How do I do this? Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) 20:35, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

I suggest making a multilingual tag for each state. These would be useful elsewhere. That's kinda a lot of work so you could make something like Template:CountryName/en instead. Rocket000 (talk) 00:29, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Convert to definition list with hlist class[edit]

I have created a sandbox page to show how the hlist class may be used but this needs some testcases. Could anyone add a good set ie with/without prefixes, suffixes, and missing states? Allen4names (talk) 10:31, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

✓ Done using HTML markup. Sandbox now synced as well. Allen4names (talk) 20:04, 8 January 2016 (UTC)


Check out Category:Scouting in Washington, where I'm using {{US states}}. Washington state doesn't show in the template. What's up with that? Evrik (talk) 19:14, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

I previewed it with the sandbox version (see sect. above) and see the same problem. Anyone know what is causing it? Allen4names (talk) 04:56, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
The category should be located at Category:Scouting in Washington (state) for the template to work. kennethaw88talk 03:25, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
