Adding more flexibility[edit]

Good Idea!
This is an excellent try at getting a commonly formatted image description.
Advanced Procedure
There needs to be a procedure for anyone wanting to add more info.

How to add more flexibility[edit]

Rather than copying and pasting this into the info window:

{{Information
| Description = 
| Source      = 
| Date        = 
| Author      = 
| Permission  = 
| other_versions = 
}}



you can use this


{|class="toccolours" style="width: 100%" cellpadding="2"
! style="background: #ccf; text-align: right; vertical-align: top; padding-right: 0.4em; width: 15%" |Description
| AAAAA 
|-
! style="background: #ccf; text-align: right; vertical-align: top; padding-right: 0.4em" | Source
| BBBBB 
|-
! style="background: #ccf; text-align: right; vertical-align: top; padding-right: 0.4em; white-space: nowrap" | Date
| {{CURRENTDAYNAME}} {{CURRENTDAY}} {{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTYEAR}}
|-
! style="background: #ccf; text-align: right; vertical-align: top; padding-right: 0.4em" | Author
| CCCCC 
|-
! style="background: #ccf; text-align: right; vertical-align: top; padding-right: 0.4em" | Permission
| DDDDD 
|-
! style="background: #ccf; text-align: right; vertical-align: top; padding-right: 0.4em" | Lesson
| EEEEE
|}

to get this

Description AAAAA
Source BBBBB
Date Tuesday 7 April 2020
Author CCCCC
Permission DDDDD
Lesson EEEEE

If you use this:


{|class="toccolours" style="width: 100%" cellpadding="2"

To maintain machine-readable licenses and future-proof usage, the actual {{Information}} template must be used rather than a substitution. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 18:18, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

empty permission field[edit]

I've removed the line to add images to the missing info category based on an empty permission field. Many of the files have license info outside of the upload info box, and this causes a large number of images to appear in the cat despite valid licensing. Any thought on this? --mikeu talk 13:42, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes, exactly.Crochet.david 13:57, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Push the author to complete the box[edit]

In the template, I propose to substitute

{{{source}}}

with

{{#if:{{{Source|}}}|{{{source|}}}|''Please, complete this section with an indication of the origin of the document.[[Category:Files without complete descriptions]]}}

and make same with Author and description (maybe without the categorisation ?) and delete the two first test. Crochet.david 14:12, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
