Error caused by Template:Sigfigs and Template:OrbitAltitude

Hello XZise. Your recent edits to these two templates caused an error message on the page Mün (old version with the error message). I fixed it temporarily by removing the Sigfigs template around the OrbitalAltitude template, but you might want to look into it. --Crush (talk) 07:50, 7 April 2013 (CDT)

This is simply because {{OrbitAltitude}} doesn't return only a number (like 1337.42) and instead format it (1 337.42). Now {{Sigfigs}} expects a plain number. To fix this either remove sigfigs (preferred as it's not useful to use it in cases like your's) or use {{OrbitAltitude/Core}}. Unfortunately every celestials article uses {{OrbitAltitude}} indirectly via the {{Infobox/Body}} so “What links here” is not of great use. — xZise [talk] 08:03, 7 April 2013 (CDT)
Okay I looked in all articles. I couldn't find any new location of this error. As there is no need to make OrbitAltitude compatible with Sigfigs I would leave it as it is. — xZise [talk] 08:26, 7 April 2013 (CDT)
PS: {{Tl}} creates easily those cool looking clickable templates. — xZise [talk] 08:08, 7 April 2013 (CDT)


XZise, the problem of using one data template is that the template is in english. Gusta (talk) 12:31, 7 April 2013 (CDT)

Hmmm but Kerbol/de or Kerbol/ru have it in German/Russian? In some languages (e.g. Swedish) the translations are missing. But then somebody with Swedish skills should do it. — xZise [talk] 12:47, 7 April 2013 (CDT)
Ah I saw that you are active in the Portuguese Wikipedia and Infobox/Body doesn't support this language. I guess you saw this edit and marking Kerbol/pt/Data for deletion. If you want to add the Portuguese translation simply edit {{Infobox/Body}}. — xZise [talk] 12:53, 7 April 2013 (CDT)
You mean creating Template:Infobox/Body/pt ? Gusta (talk) 12:55, 7 April 2013 (CDT)
“If you want to add the Portuguese translation simply edit {{Infobox/Body}}” No not creating a /pt translation (there is no {{Infobox/Body/de}}. For example I want to add the translation of mass for Klingon I can do this by adding “tlh=ngI'” to
{{lang|en=[[w:Mass|Mass]]|nl=[[w:nl:Massa|Massa]]|fr=[[w:fr:Masse|Masse]]|pl=[[w:pl:Masa_(fizyka)|Masa]]|ru=[[w:ru:Масса|Масса]]|de=[[w:de:Masse (Physik)|Masse]]}}
As you can see there are already translations into Dutch, French, Polish, Russian and German. Now if you are on a page with /fr as suffix (e.g. Kerbol/fr) it selects the French text. If there is no text in the “active” language it will use by default English. As {{lang}} doesn't understand tlh/Klingon it won't work ;)xZise [talk] 13:19, 7 April 2013 (CDT)
Ohh, understood now. Thanks a lot!. Gusta (talk) 13:29, 7 April 2013 (CDT)
