Template:FI/csplit-c and related...

I'd like a second opinion, as this was able to solve an issue I had with captions that had 'split' arrangments. Typically an attribution to the right or left and then the main caption centered below that. Forcing a paragraph break in the way this template does works, and I added a commented out documentation section, but wasn't going to formally uncomment it without someone else reviewing the approach.

As I have commented on Template talk:FreedImg, I'm not sure why {{FI}} uses spans for the caption in the first place. It's a div template, so it's already going to break paragraphs, so why not just use a div for the caption too? Then you can just use normal block alignment templates within the caption. Making tonnes of special templates just as a workaround is all but guaranteed to go wrong. FI is already complex to use for a template that's supposed to make it simpler!

Thanks, You saved me the need to make a request there.
I'm not entirely sure how to do a c(aption)-split inside FIS, but I am thinking that an approach not dissimilar to the approach suggested at Scriptorum would be approriate, but I'd have to check to see if the "pusedo-float" would need to be implemented on each caption span as well, (Note to self: the pusedo-float center should probably be a defined class somewhere).

Hi -- thanks for the running header script, it sounds really useful. But I don’t seem to have it working even though I added the importScript statement you provided to my common.js. This is the first time I tried to add a script so I probably misunderstood something really simple… Thanks for help Levana Taylor (talk) 18:55, 3 August 2019 (UTC)

@Levana Taylor: Maybe try a hard-refresh of the page you're trying to edit? Sometimes you have to force your browser to reload the script. In Firefox, it's Ctrl-Shift-R. It works for me with just the following, so I think it's probably a browser cache thing:
importScript("User:Inductiveload/Running header.js");
Cheers, nice work on Once a Week, by the way! Inductiveloadtalk/contribs 20:41, 3 August 2019 (UTC)
OK, it’s there now, and working magnificently. Thanks a lot! Levana Taylor (talk) 18:41, 4 August 2019 (UTC)

I was doing some work on Sacred Books of the East and I thought I'd take a stab at standardizing the structure across volumes, bringing it up to current practice for multivolume works and so forth (see User:Beleg Tâl/Sandbox/Sacred Books of the East).

This would involve significantly renaming some pages in Volume 3, such as renaming Shu to Shû), and standardizing the Book pages in the Shû to use /Book # as is currently done only in Part 5.

I would also attempt to merge in the duplicate volumes The Religious Portions of the Shih King and The Shû King.

Since you appear to have been the primary editor of this volume, I wanted to touch base with you before proceeding. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 18:04, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

I inherited quite a bit of the current structure of it from a previous editor. I have no major attachment to any of the structure, so please feel free to chop and change as necessary. The problem I had with this work is that the various sections are nested to different depths and aren't always in the same scheme (since parts are Books, some are Odes/Decades, there are Introductions that aren't in the subsequent sections, etc). I'll happily follow whatever layout you think is appropriate. Some bits might need splitting, eg Sacred Books of the East/Volume 3/The Shih/Odes of the Temple and the Altar/The Sacrificial Odes of Kau, but then I'm not sure where to put thy intro.
