Template talk:Movie facts

From BoyWiki

I had some trouble transcluding this template, mainly due to that I didn't understand that the template call needs to have the first pipe on the same line as the template name, or the call will not work. For example,

{{Movie facts |

will work, but

{{Movie facts

will not.

Additionally, I could not find a way of passing a list to a template in a semantic, elegant way. I was hoping to do something like this:

{{Movie facts|...|stars=
*Malcolm McDowell
*[[Haley Joel Osment]]

and then unstyle the list using

list-style-type: none; padding-left: 0; margin-left: 0;

But inserting the lists breaks the template call.

What happens if we wish to list the BBFC Rating (UK) or the OFLC Rating (Aus)? I'd hate to see a particular country bias codified in boywiki templates. ;) - Atom 14:21, 10 March 2006 (EST)

Don't shoot, I'm just the messenger. :) Besides, we're already biased, aren't we? :D Seriously, there may be some way to conditionally include parameters, and if there isn't, there should be.
