Elinks templates not working for tables

Forums: Index WoWWiki technical Elinks templates not working for tables

Pages that use this Elinks templates within a table no longer work. I'm pretty sure they used to. Examples: Mangle using Template:Elinks-spell, Thassarian using Template:Elinks-NPC.

Actual table/template usage that I think used to work:

Ebon Hold Scarlet Tavern Light's Hope Wailing Ziggurat The Skybreaker
||||||||

Are the templates broken, or did tables change? I wanted to check before I edit each page to show the tables correctly. -- Harveydrone 19:24, March 18, 2010 (UTC)


Yea, I asked this question when I first noticed it started doing that... no response, but I did notice if you change how you handle the table it will work just fine.

Instead of:

{| class=darktable
|-
!Ebon Hold !! Scarlet Tavern !! Light's Hope
|-
|{{elinks-NPC|28449}}||{{elinks-NPC|28913}}||{{elinks-NPC|29200}}
|}

Use:

{| class=darktable
|-
!Ebon Hold !! Scarlet Tavern !! Light's Hope
|-
|{{elinks-NPC|28449}}
|{{elinks-NPC|28913}}
|{{elinks-NPC|29200}}
|}

And you get:

Ebon Hold Scarlet Tavern Light's Hope

I can verify that {{elinks-NPC}} from July 7 2008 did work, and that the most recent July 6 2009 version of elinks-NPC (kd3) did not. Did not try either of the intervening Gourra versions. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 22:01, March 18, 2010 (UTC)
Fixed it. --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 00:18, March 19, 2010 (UTC)
Amazing what a bit of research can do, when some elbow grease by knowledgeable persons follows ... :) --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 20:01, March 19, 2010 (UTC)
