Page:Memoir and poems of Phillis Wheatley, a native African and a slave.djvu/6Edit

The image on this page seems to be taken from the DJVU page, as there is artefacting. You may want to use the higher-quality image available here.

Thanks for that. I did not even think about getting that and I really should have. I was sitting at the scanner, thinking about the need for a cover.

Thank you, sirEdit

Thank you for the large work you have been doing on the Aesop's Fables. Really, thank you. —Genesis Bustamante (talk) 02:28, 30 March 2022 (UTC)

I did not know that! I'm glad that my work is helpful. Adding the initials and illustrations was excellent. That is the most tedious work imaginable, so thank you. I'll add them after I transclude to the main-space the remaining pages. Could you help me with adding a fable illustration in page 5? I forgot the wiki-code for that. And... what is buried you will recreate, or relink, I suppose? —Genesis Bustamante (talk) 18:28, 1 April 2022 (UTC)
Genoskill: Cygnis puts a "frameless" in the "[[File:" list of things. But, if it is just an image in the center of the page [[File:Caxton Aesop-019.jpg|center|350px]] works just fine.--RaboKarbakian (talk) 18:42, 1 April 2022 (UTC)
@RaboKarbakian: Thank you! What's Cygnis? —Genesis Bustamante (talk) 17:49, 3 April 2022 (UTC)
Genoskill: User:Cygnis insignis is (the first that I know of) one of the sourcerer artists.--RaboKarbakian (talk) 17:56, 3 April 2022 (UTC)

St Nicholas...Edit

Okay so you are reverting my attempts to resolve the Lint-error. Thanks :)

Perhaps you have a solution to the DIV-span swap that existed?

It seems that when you set center in image syntax it wraps the image in a DIV container, which can't be placed in a SPAN. That's now resolved, so I went ahead and reinstated your version on the other pages you hadn't reverted to yet.

ShakespeareFan00 Truly! I was unaware of a div-span swap and in these wee-precaffienated hours of my day (in the Moin) I am unable to imagine what this condition might even be! There are no spans in the markup or in the css, for instance. Oh, maybe line-height?--RaboKarbakian (talk) 13:03, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
Images - you had something like <span style="float:foo">[[File:bar.jpg|center]]</span>. This causes a DIV span swap to occur, as the Image syntax creates a DIV wrapper to apply the centering on the image....

Recent edit on Charles KingsleyEdit

Hi there, I was wondering what the thinking was behind changing the links associated with 'Hereward the Wake'? You seem to have pointed the title to a Wikipedia page for the work and added links to two index pages that don't exist. In neither case have I seen this done on any other author page I've edited. Regards, Chrisguise (talk) 11:31, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

Chrisguise I used {{wdl}} which links to whatever it finds first of source, en.wiki, commons, or finally resonator. Usually, it links to commons as articles don't exist for the books. When the book is transcribed and put at wikidata, it will point to the link here. I would have used {{WD author}} which only links here if there is a link, but it is too stupid for multiple volumes and too clutzy as it puts anything that follows it onto a new line with a space in front of it. I have no idea how to fix its stupidness that way. {{wdl}} is really made for and is great for linking within works and if that use for the book is too annoying for you, it can be changed back to not use any wikidata templates. Especially since what I did is kind of like stupid on stupid.... I just like to point to where all the work for the volumes has been done; I don't always like how I point.--RaboKarbakian (talk) 13:26, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

Page:St. Nicholas - Volume 41, Part 1.djvu/77Edit

Smaller is SPAN based and hence you cant put POEM inside it. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 14:59, 21 May 2022 (UTC)

ShakespeareFan00 Oops, sorry and thanks. I was going to just redo that page, but later. And by "later" it might mean that I forget to redo it, as my mornings are such.... I always opt for having the appearance of not broken.--RaboKarbakian (talk) 15:10, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
You might need to use something like {{overfloat image}} , otherwise the verse won't be 'inside' the image. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 15:20, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
ShakespeareFan00 Completely new thing, or old business, from yesterday: https://en.wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Page:St._Nicholas_(serial)_(IA_stnicholasserial402dodg).pdf/707&diff=prev&oldid=12356168 I have never seen anything like that before and I tried to use it in other places and failed. What is that? --RaboKarbakian (talk) 15:28, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
The {class} syntax is specfic to Ppoem. It's how you class portions..ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 15:40, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
