Image problemEdit

I've tried this on w:c:zoology and had problems with the image, so I omitted the image. Something seems to be a bit odd around the "250" area. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 14:41, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

The template does not allow including units in the parameter as-is. If you want to put "px" every time the template is used, just replace every instance of "}}}px" with "px}}}" --Yoshord 23:12, January 8, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you. I wasn't trying to do anything with units. I put only the image name in. A "250pxpx" thing appeared and the image didn't. I'll fiddle around along the lines you suggest. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 01:03, January 9, 2010 (UTC)

problems Edit

I implemented this on my wikia, Unus Mundus, and I got it to at least show up on an article, but if the image is larger than the taxobox then it becomes huge and is not shrinked to a thumbnail, and I'm not sure how exactly to implement the changing colors with changing regnums.

First, the image parameter takes an image name, not an image link. Just Example.png, not [[Example.png]]. The making the image a link is included in the template, and layering image links does not work: [[[[Example.png]]|150px]] does not result in a 150px wide image.
Second, this template's color changing abilities relies on the taxobox having a class that you removed from the template (namely taxobox-{{{regnum}}}), and a bunch of css which is kind of on the doc page you copied over from here. Put the css on w:c:unusmundus:Mediawiki:Wikia.css and the class back in the taxobox for the color changing to work.

Ah; thank you, I got it all to work now. But... well can you help me with another template for that wikia? I added a template some time ago, Template:NewOrganism, and it works fine, but when I put it on the main page it messes up the text that is supposed to be below it, putting it to the side. --Xwarq 00:37, March 27, 2011 (UTC)
