Gallery Name

Maybe the "Gallery Name" tag could create an automatic link to the main article (and copy that link to "See Also"). The Clever Guy (TalkContribsE-Mail) 13:09, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

And if it's a character gallery it could also create a link to the equivalent fan art gallery; and create a link to the equivalent character gallery if it's a fan art gallery.

Maybe a certain category called "Empty galleries" could be added if the "| GalleryData =" field is left empty. Thoughts? The Clever Guy (TalkContribsE-Mail) 11:27, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

Equally brilliant!
I have logged 'feature requests' for this functionality, here and here.
Feel free to add bugs/feature requests at Bugzilla yourself, if you like.

I've written the template code for these two features, but the See Also field one won't work until we get those helpful string functions (which I'm watching for). Until then, it's hard to tell if the template is functioning correctly, but at least most of it is written! Here's the test code, and here's the page that I'm testing it on. I tried to address these in Bugzilla, but haven't received a confirmation email yet. . .

Oops! I knew I forgot something!
I forgot to attach our Bugzilla installation to a valid SMTP mail relay server...
I guess I will log a bug to fix Bugzilla... hahaha

I have created a sandbox for the gallery template with an automatic link function. I think it's pretty good now. This is the test page. But there are issues with brackets [[]] in the "GalleryName" field. The Clever Guy (TalkContribsE-Mail) 11:45, 18 November 2007 (UTC)
My sandbox for this template has become totally awesome! (If I'm allowed to say that myself.) Functions:
  • Automatic Backlink to the main subject (aka {{BASEPAGENAME}}; requires title to be fully written out without double brackets [[]] in the "GalleryName" field)
  • Automatic links to related pages.
  • Character Gallery: Links to Main Article, Fan Art Gallery, and its image category.
  • Fan Art Gallery: Links to Main Article, Character Gallery, and its image category.
  • Item Gallery: Links to Main Article, Fan Art Gallery, and its image category.
  • Location Gallery: Links to Main Article, Fan Art Gallery, and its image category.
  • Artist Gallery: Links to Main Article and Photo Gallery.
  • DC/Marvel Staff Gallery: Links to Main Article, and Artist Gallery, if it exists.
  • Fan Artist Gallery: Link to Main Article.
  • Cover Art Gallery: Links to all comics list on the with the exact title.
  • If there would be brackets in the "GalleryName" field, it is displayed as the original editor wished, and the automatic related links work with {{BASEPAGENAME}} instead of {{{GalleryName}}} (they work with {{{GalleryName}}} if the GalleryName exists and is without brackets). Also, it creates the category "Galleries with faulty backlink", so that some [bored] person could go fix it sometime.
  • Automatic category "Empty Galleries" if the "GalleryData" field is left empty.
  • Automatic category "Templated Galleries".
I have created a test page for it here and tested lots of various combinations. (Note: the gallery thing is not visible at the code sandbox page because of a <includeonly/> script.) Any thoughts? The Clever Guy (TalkContribsE-Mail) 17:55, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Recently added function

Am I getting this right...the gallery template can now for itself figure out the name and first letter of the selected gallery? Cool. :D The Clever Guy Talk 19:43, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
