Illustrator comes out...

I checked for a few times, still can't figure out why "Illustrator" comes out, anyone help to fix?
PS: The version before nereid working with no "Illustrator" comes out. - KyoriAsh 02:50, April 11, 2010 (UTC)

It seems that this is compulsory. Most album titles get only so much as their Japanese title and a romanization these days, so it would be best if this were optional. I only have the basic of basic knowledge of templates and I don't want to mess anything up so... !8RstuPId2Y 06:02, April 11, 2010 (UTC)

I taught that all music title basically sure got EN translation title... oh well let's see this how first - KyoriAsh 07:00, April 11, 2010 (UTC)
Much appreciated. !8RstuPId2Y 01:42, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

Category:Arrange CDs

Since this is the MusicArticle template, I guess that means it's a catchall for all CD articles. That brings up the problem of the Offical CDs. The Official CDs however aren't necessarily arrange CDs. A couple are, but not all; the manga enclosures, Akyu's untouched score, etc. Options are:

  1. Pretend MusicArticle doesn't exist and use Infobox Music for those articles instead.
  2. Axe the automatic Category:Arrange CDs and manually put what category of CD it is.

Personally, the former looks like the better option to me. So... Yeah. Just wanted to bring up this point. !8RstuPId2Y 01:42, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

Alright, good point. I prefer the second option though, since the MusicArticle template would work just as well for the Official CD articles (except for that difference). I'll go ahead and remove the Arrange CDs category from this template. —Nereid talk 04:02, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
Also help to axe the ----<br />*Return to [[List of Groups]] for me if this include Official CD, or {{#if:}} again? - KyoriAsh 13:42, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
I like the musictype parameter you added, and I agree with having List of Groups only if it's not an Official CD. —Nereid talk 17:00, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
On a related note, Official CDs don't have reviews, but if no review is specified then currently {{Genre Needed}} is used as default. But it seems there's no way to have no review section at all. (See User:Nereid0/test.) —Nereid talk 17:15, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
Considering other than {{#if}} but I don't know how to use... — KyoriAsh 17:57, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
Switch case may solve the problem, but how to coding I not sure about it — KyoriAsh 18:09, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
Why not make musictype optional? E.g. specify it explicitly only if it's official CD. Most MusicArticles are about Arrange CDs anyway. WGH, 13:48, September 24, 2010 (UTC)

image parameter

Should it be same with banner parameter in which only throw the file name? — KyoriAsh 18:27, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

No reason why not. Just upload a No Image Available.jpg for that occasional album and it should be all good. !8RstuPId2Y 22:12, April 12, 2010 (UTC)


When, editing the article from the [edit] link, it takes you to editing the template instead of editing the article. Anyway we can still have the headline but without the [edit] link? !8RstuPId2Y 20:09, April 15, 2010 (UTC)

Done. —Nereid talk 02:37, April 16, 2010 (UTC)

Multiple groups

How would you go about adding multiple groups if a cd has more than one group? MaronaPossessed 00:46, October 22, 2010 (UTC)

Okay I figured out a temp solution:
| group = first group here & second group here

add these:

| groupCat = first group here
| groupCat2 = second group here
what this does on "group" is list it as normal, but it doesn't add the categories, so use the groupcat to add the categories. So far only works for two groups. MaronaPossessed 20:12, October 24, 2010 (UTC)
Actually, the "groupCat" and "groupCat2" fields automatically override whatever is in the "group" field when it comes to categories (in fact, albums with more than one circle are one of the reasons why they're there). There's no need for <nowiki> tags to be used. It's just extra code. 20:19, October 24, 2010 (UTC)
