Re: Pictures and layout

Hi,

Yes, pictures are tricky! Your last edit works better than mine (tough to admit it...). I'll try to remember the <br clear="all"> command, it seems useful — perhaps better than a table, as a table is a bit trickier to sort out structur-wise while editing an unfamiliar page.

Hi Suf. Tables do give you a bit more flexibility as to the placement of the image, though, which may well be an advantage if you are using images as part of a step-by-step tutorial.

Thanks

Gale

Sure, no problems. :-) /SUF

Suggested template for intros

Hi Gale,

Playing around again, I created a template that produces the "page introduction" formatting (text on blue background plate). The template is Template:Intro, where it is actually used recursively(!). I have tested it on Test:Suf just to check that it works.

  • I used what appears to be your latest intro style.
  • Several paragraphs of text can apparently be supplied!
  • Any equal signs used in the text means that the 1= prefix has to be used.
  • Embedding one intro in another did not work...

Unless there are problems I have not foreseen, using this template would save a little typing (not that important), reduce the risk of copy-paste mistakes but also make it easier to change the formatting of intros, should it be necessary.

Updated Intro template

Hi again Gale,

I added a second parameter to Template:Intro, have a look at the template page and at the test page.
