Template talk:Version

Could we have this template place the page into Category:Pages with dated info or something similiar? It would make it easier to find all the articles that need updating, especially as we start getting more frequent updates. Maybe even a different category for each version, if that's possible. --Turgid Bolk 16:57, 2 November 2007 (EDT)

I've got the template including into the category. It would be possible to make a category for version too with [[Category:Version {{{1}}}]]. Still thinking over if this is the best way to do it. If it is, feel free to make the change. --Shagie 17:14, 2 November 2007 (EDT)
  • Current version of DF doesn't display well with this template on some pages (Ref:Butcher's shop). v0.31.19 Is it fixable or work-around-able? --DN 16:42 1 March 2011 (GMT)

Breaks formatting[edit]

This template does weird things at the end of sentences, for instance, this should all be on one line:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit.v0.27.169.33a Also, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt.

I've been leaving out the space after the template to fix this, and putting it inside the punctuation work, too. Is there some way to fix the template or should we just work around it? --Turgid Bolk 14:48, 5 November 2007 (EST)

This has been fixed. The problem was with Template:ver which had:
<includeonly>{{version|{{{1}}}}}</includeonly>
<noinclude>A shortcut for [[Template:Version]]
...
The return between the </includeonly> and <noinclude> was then read in when the template was included. The spaces after the template then started a preformating block. Removing the return so that it was ...</includeonly><noinclude>... fixed it. --Shagie 15:40, 5 November 2007 (EST)
Aha, thanks very much. This template business is tricky! --Turgid Bolk 16:04, 5 November 2007 (EST)

Linked Template?[edit]

Should the output of this template perhaps link to a page explaining why the information has been tagged, similar to Wikipedia's [citation needed] footnotes? EighenIndemnis 16:00, 5 November 2007 (EST)

Versioning wiki[edit]

I don't know if this is the place to put this, but would it be possible to put a version tag on each and every page, like a verified for version blah-blah-blah, such that when new versions come out we can verify new features, missing exploits, bugs and all that jazz. I think such a thing would also allow a stat for the version of the wiki like "68% of wikipages updated to version blah" somewhere. I don't know, maybe it's a pointless endevor if we are fortunate to get new versions every week.

Version-specific info[edit]

I see this template is used nowadays to mark version-specific info, but the category pages it links to still say "The articles in this category have old information pertaining to (version) and need to be reviewed or updated. Please make sure all information is accurate for (current version)." This may need to be changed to avoid confusion. DarklingArcher (talk) 19:41, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
