Category:Pages using duplicate arguments in template calls

Jump to: navigation, search

This tracking category is fed automatically by MediaWiki. It lists pages using templates and passing them multiple parameters under the same parameter name.

In some cases, these are only dummy parameter values assigned to the same dummy parameter name (the last assigned parameter value, in syntax order, is taken into account and overwrites any previously assigned value). Some old-fashioned templates are using some kind of black magic by first passing them a series of static parameters, and then overwriting some of them using varying parameter names, but MediaWiki does not like this method and signals these overwritten parameters.
Unfortunately, MediaWiki still does not have a stable way to indicate that the parameter is dummy and will be ignored by the template implementation (such as a stable parameter name, including the empty parameter name different from positional parameters which are implicitly numbered). So many pages are reported in this (hidden) category (solving these errors requires an excellent knowledge and understanding on how templates work in MediaWiki).
User pages were listed below due to how translatable templates used in Babelbox were written (This issue has been solved: null-editing these pages should make them disappear from this category).

Except these rare cases of black magic (internal to complex templates), this is most often a simple editing error when using templates in the listed pages. They are simple to resolve from the Wiki editor: edit the page and preview it ; MediaWiki will show error messages at top of the preview specifying the template name and the overwritten/conflicting parameter name ; only the last occurence of the template parameter name is used.
