ଶ୍ରେଣୀ:Wikipedia shortcut box first parameter needs fixing


This is a Wikipedia maintenance category.

This category is automatically populated by the template {{shortcut}} and its sister templates, like the white box you see to the right. Pages that feed the first parameter to those boxes in the wrong way are put in this category. This is so we can easily find those pages and fix them.

The most common fixes that need to be done are:

  • The shortcut (the redirect page) has not yet been created. If that is the case you see a red link in the shortcut box.
  • {{shortcut|[[WP:A]]}} – Should be changed to {{shortcut|WP:A}}
  • {{shortcut|[[WP:A]]<br>[[WP:B]]}} – Should be changed to {{shortcut|WP:A|WP:B}}
  • {{Talkheader|Chappy84}} – Should be changed to {{Talkheader|User_talk:Chappy84}}

That is, don't use brackets [[ ]] around the parameters. And don't use <br> tags, instead feed each shortcut as a separate parameter to the template. User page shortcuts need either User: or User_talk: in front of the username parameter.

Subcategories that get listed here are not subcategories in the normal sense. Instead they happen to use a shortcut box in the wrong way and thus need fixing too.

If some case is too tricky or a page is protected so you can't edit it, don't worry. More experienced editors and admins will work through the cases that get left in this category.

MediaWiki runs updates of category listings (as the one you see below) as a low priority job. Thus if the servers are very busy it can take some days before a page is removed from the list below even though the page has been fixed. But normally it is removed within an hour.

Sometimes you need to purge a page to see your change of a shortcut box and to get rid of this category from the bottom of a page. This is mostly needed when the shortcut box is on a "header subpage" that is transcluded onto another page.

The reason we added this detection and error reporting was that we have added new functionality to the shortcut boxes, but pages that feed the first parameter to the boxes in the wrong way break that functionality.

For more about all this see the talk page of this category, and Template talk:Shortcut.
