Template talk:Br

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Usage[edit]

The template seems to be used in only two pages (check what links here). Shouldn't the template be used in articles...? RAP.pngRAP... *blink blink* 2 pages...

Replace?[edit]

I see a lot of <br clear=all>. Should it be replaced with {{br}}? --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 02:42, 18 January 2016 (EST)

They're perfectly interchangeable, or at least so I believe. I think there's no point in changing all instances of <br clear=all>, both function the same. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 17:27, 18 January 2016 (EST)
Wouldn't it make editing pages easier? Also if there is a problem with the source code of {{br}} or the raw code <br clear=all>, all pages that use the template will be corrected automatically. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 17:43, 18 January 2016 (EST)
Besides that having it in the template is easier maintenance as said, using clear=all on a BR is obsolete with HTML5. This template uses the correct coding, in addition to not even using a BR. Lakituthequick.png Lakituthequick 14:40, 19 January 2016 (EST)
The idea is, if the <br clear=all> is preceding the navigation templates, it should be replaced with {{BoxTop}}, otherwise you can safely replace it with {{br}}. But I think it's not worth it to mass edit all articles for such a minor change, instead, if you come by it while regularly editing, you can then replace it.--

Yeah, exactly what Megadardery said. Also keep in mind that it can be replaced with {{br|left}} or {{br|right}} when it seems appropriate: it often leads to neater-looking pages than just automatically clearing everything every time. - Walkazo 15:59, 19 January 2016 (EST)
We could mass edit if moderators could do a RegExp search and replace or something but I can agree that regular editing instead of seeking edits to be made to replace <br clear=all> with {{br}} is a good idea to keep in mind. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 16:18, 19 January 2016 (EST)
This shouldn't be an issue anymore. I just took a bot and changed over all instances of <br clear=all> to {{br}}. I even accounted for a few instances of <br clear=left> and <br clear=right>. Now this wiki's main articles are HTML5 compliant, as Lakituthequick (talk) put it. As the bot was fixing articles, I was monitoring for other edits by hiding my bot edits as this was on-going. Nothing too severe. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 20:25, 21 May 2016 (EDT)

BoxTop[edit]

This template should be edited to remove the information about BoxTop, as it is no longer being used. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 13:51, 2 May 2017 (EDT)

Category[edit]

What category should go on this article (for it is listed amongst those with no category templates). Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 11:11, 17 May 2017 (EDT)

Ok. Then we should add it. (apparently I can't add it) Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 11:23, 17 May 2017 (EDT)
