Protected edit request on 30 March 2021

The wikitext {{navbar|{{{BANNER_NAME}}}|mini=1|style=; clear:right; margin:-1em 0.1em; display:none;}} should be removed from Template:WPBannerMeta/core. The last attempt to remove it at Template_talk:WPBannerMeta/Archive 10#Edit request to /core to remove navbar call was closed on the grounds that people could enable viewing it using custom CSS, but a search shows that only 7 editors have done this, even years after it was added. It would make much more sense for anyone would like the functionality to use a userscript, like User:BrandonXLF/WPBannerNavbar.js, to show the navbar rather than adding an invisible navbar to millions of pages for use by 7 editors, not the mention the millions of rows the invisible navbar adds to the pagelinks database table. 08:12, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

 Not done for now: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit protected}} template. Accordingly, I am notifying those who took part last time, plus those in the above search query: Netoholic, Mr. Stradivarius, MSGJ, Happy-melon, Andy M. Wang, InverseHypercube. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 14:03, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

Obviously, I continue to support removal of this silly inclusion as I stated 7 years ago. In that time, the initial concern has doubled, with this minor function now adding unnecessary HTML to 9.3 million talk pages. -- Netoholic @ 14:17, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

I would support removal. -- WOSlinker (talk) 16:53, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
Support edit, it makes sense to remove it. Never knew it was there to begin with, so I don't use it! Funandtrvl (talk) 21:24, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
@Happy-melon: - any comments on this before we remove it? -- xaosflux Talk 02:27, 15 April 2021 (UTC)
I've removed this now as there have been no objections. -- WOSlinker (talk) 13:13, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

Remove the line <td class="mbox-empty-cell"></td> from Template:WPBannerMeta/core to resolve an issue with the border when the template is inside {{WikiProject banner shell}}. It was orginally added by User:Happy-melon in revision 301387726 (diff) so the header and the body would have the same number of table cells since the header also had a mbox-empty-cell table cell that was used to contain the metadata. But now that the metadata was moved and the mbox-empty-cell in the header was removed by User:WOSlinker in revision 982121201 (diff), there is one extra table cell in the text row, causing the border issue. To fix this, the mbox-empty-cell should in the text row should also be removed. Here's the effect of the change (notice the border in the top right):

Question about duplication of banners when using a banner wrapper template to redirect

We're trying to merge Template:WPUS50 into Template:WikiProject United States. The problem is with moving the transcluded pages from the WPUS50 template to WPUSA. If we change Template:WPUS50 to a banner wrapper template, using code like in Template:WikiProject Iowa, this will change the banners to the WPUSA, but it oftens leaves two WPUSA banners on the talk pages. Is there any way to prevent this from happening, or to combine the two WP banners on the talk pages? Thanks, --Funandtrvl (talk) 18:14, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

Never mind, a bot would need to do the work. --Funandtrvl (talk) 23:29, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

Cosmetic problem in a narrow browser window

Edit: problem now solved, no further action required.

There is a cosmetic problem when a WP banner appears within a narrow browser window. I reproduce an example banner from this template's documentation to help discuss this.

      <------- minimum width for correct behaviour ------------->

This is intended to display in two columns, a narrow left column with graphics, and a wide right column with lots of text. This works correctly if the banner is wider than the "mininum" I've marked. However if the browser window is too narrow, the first row collapses to a single column (containing both graphics and text) but the other rows continue as two columns, resulting in a wide left column and a narrow right column, the opposite of what was intended. Can this be fixed? -- Dr Greg  talk  21:05, 5 June 2021 (UTC)

I find that I can get it down to
   <----------- this width ----------->
before a problem occurs. Beyond that point, the two columns remain, but the image vanishes. Maybe it's a browser thing - I use firefox. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 21:23, 5 June 2021 (UTC)
I'm on Firefox too, on a Windows 10 laptop, with text at 100%. Can't get the image to disappear.
I've just tried MS Edge, and Internet Explorer, and neither my problem nor yours occurs with either of them. -- Dr Greg  talk  21:45, 5 June 2021 (UTC)
Problem solved: I'm using a gadget "Improved appearance for mobile, narrow and wide screens" User:TheDJ/responsiveContent, and when I disable that, the problem goes away. So there's no problem with this template that needs solving. But I'll leave this conversation here for the record. -- Dr Greg  talk  22:08, 5 June 2021 (UTC)
