Auto-categorization of author credits

It doesn't work properly from Story6 and onward. Magic word thing doesn't work and authors like Al Bellman and Bill Everett are getting their work divided into two categories like Category:William Blake Everett/Penciler and Category:Bill Everett/Penciler. Is there a way to fix it? --Mrkermit (talk) 15:15, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Typo

A recent edit seems to have introduced a typo to the recent issue warning: "Warning! This comic has a very recent peublication date and the article below may contain spoilers! Read beyond this point at your own risk!" Digifiend (talk) 17:23, September 9, 2016 (UTC)

Displaying universe as well?

Would it be possible to add a field for which universe an issue takes place in as well? Like, for all Earth-1610 comics it would display that info? That would be very useful information to a lot of readers, I think, because then they can find other comics that take place in that same timeline. — Emitewiki2 (talk) 02:22, July 28, 2018 (UTC)

Edit request

Protected template edit request

The code for this template gets weird at the 31st title, there's solicit code stuck in there that NONE of the other title iterations have. (I doubt there's actually anything in the database with > 30 titles, but..)

Here's the code:

}} }}{{#if:{{{Appearing30|}}}{{{StoryTitle30|}}}|{{Marvel Database:Comic Template/Appearances Synopsis
| Number          = 30
| ReprintOf       = {{#if:{{{ReprintOf30|}}}|{{{ReprintOf30}}}}}
| StoryTitle      = {{#if:{{{StoryTitle30|}}}|{{{StoryTitle30}}}}}
| AppearingHeader = {{#if:{{{Appearing30Header|}}}|{{{Appearing30Header}}}}}
| Appearing       = {{#if:{{{Appearing30|}}}|{{{Appearing30}}}<br />}}
| SynopsisHeader  = {{#if:{{{Synopsis30Header|}}}|{{{Synopsis30Header}}}}}
| Synopsis        = {{#if:{{{Synopsis30|}}}|{{{Synopsis30}}}|{{#if:{{{ReprintOf30|}}}|<br /><br /><big>'''--For a full synopsis of this comic, please see the original publishing of this comic in {{c|{{{ReprintOf30}}}}}.--'''</big><br />}}}}
}} }}{{#if:{{{Appearing31|}}}{{{StoryTitle31|}}}|{{Marvel Database:Comic Template/Appearances Synopsis
| Number          = 31
| ReprintOf       = {{#if:{{{ReprintOf31|}}}|{{{ReprintOf31}}}}}
| StoryTitle      = {{#if:{{{StoryTitle31|}}}|{{{StoryTitle31}}}}}
| AppearingHeader = {{#if:{{{Appearing31Header|}}}|{{{Appearing31Header}}}}}
| Appearing       = {{#if:{{{Appearing31|}}}|{{{Appearing31}}}<br />}}
| SynopsisHeader  = {{#if:{{{Synopsis31Header|}}}|{{{Synopsis31Header}}}| {{#if:{{{Synopsis31|}}}||{{#if:{{{Solicit|}}}| Solicit Synopsis }} }} }}
| Synopsis        = {{#if:{{{Synopsis31|}}}|{{{Synopsis31}}}| {{#if:{{{Solicit|}}}| {{{Solicit}}} }} }}
}} }}{{#if:{{{Appearing32|}}}{{{StoryTitle32|}}}|{{Marvel Database:Comic Template/Appearances Synopsis
| Number          = 32
| ReprintOf       = {{#if:{{{ReprintOf32|}}}|{{{ReprintOf32}}}}}
| StoryTitle      = {{#if:{{{StoryTitle32|}}}|{{{StoryTitle32}}}}}
| AppearingHeader = {{#if:{{{Appearing32Header|}}}|{{{Appearing32Header}}}}}
| Appearing       = {{#if:{{{Appearing32|}}}|{{{Appearing32}}}<br />}}
| SynopsisHeader  = {{#if:{{{Synopsis32Header|}}}|{{{Synopsis32Header}}}}}
| Synopsis        = {{#if:{{{Synopsis32|}}}|{{{Synopsis32}}}|{{#if:{{{ReprintOf32|}}}|<br /><br /><big>'''--For a full synopsis of this comic, please see the original publishing of this comic in {{c|{{{ReprintOf32}}}}}.--'''</big><br />}}}}

To match the others, 31 should contain:

}} }}{{#if:{{{Appearing31|}}}{{{StoryTitle31|}}}|{{Marvel Database:Comic Template/Appearances Synopsis
| Number          = 31
| ReprintOf       = {{#if:{{{ReprintOf31|}}}|{{{ReprintOf31}}}}}
| StoryTitle      = {{#if:{{{StoryTitle31|}}}|{{{StoryTitle31}}}}}
| AppearingHeader = {{#if:{{{Appearing31Header|}}}|{{{Appearing31Header}}}}}
| Appearing       = {{#if:{{{Appearing31|}}}|{{{Appearing31}}}<br />}}
| SynopsisHeader  = {{#if:{{{Synopsis31Header|}}}|{{{Synopsis31Header}}}}}
| Synopsis        = {{#if:{{{Synopsis31|}}}|{{{Synopsis31}}}|{{#if:{{{ReprintOf31|}}}|<br /><br /><big>'''--For a full synopsis of this comic, please see the original publishing of this comic in {{c|{{{ReprintOf31}}}}}.--'''</big><br />}}}}

I see Harasar sorted that out a couple of weeks ago, my thanks! -- FeRDNYC (talk) 11:36, April 16, 2019 (UTC)

Category Magic not quite working?

I've noticed some Comic Volume pages don't include all of the issues. For example, Iron Man Vol 5 is missing most issues, because it's Category doesn't have them, even though the issues in that volume are using this template. I've tried to compare the issues that ARE in the category with the others that aren't, but can't see any fundamental difference in usage of this template. Perhaps I'm missing something?
