I will remove the link to the little-used 'Feature/Proposals' page from this template in due course unless anyone objects here in the mean time. Before doing this I will review the existing feature pages and move the Proposals into a suitable 'Proposals' section on the main feature page or create a link to that page from a 'Proposals' section as appropriate.

I have now made the change suggested above having checked all the relevant /proposals pages and moved any content into the relevant feature page. PeterIto 08:33, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Removed banner

I have removed the banner from this template which seems to add little of benefit and cluttered the top of every feature page. PeterIto 10:35, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

There no need to include single article Junctions twice: in Category:Features and Category:Junctions when Category:Junctions is subcategory in Category:Features

It is not fixed right now. Xxzme (talk) 04:05, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

"Merging" with Template:Description?

A brief thought: could it be an idea to make an adapted Template:FeatureDescription that simply uses Template:Description, or would the use-case for the feature template be a bit too specific for that? It'd be useful for features such as statuses, as well as being easier to translate for the other users. Messy Unicorn (talk) 12:55, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Well currently feature template is really simple: optional image, description and links to tags. Even we can benefit from existing features in Description template, how does this will make translations easier? See also recent changes and discussion in section below.

Internationalization support now available

I have added internationalization support to this template. And an technical issue caused by a namespace hack is fixed (using more simple way to solve namespace).

To add new languages or new words, you can edit Template:FeatureLang. --Mfuji (talk) 04:55, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

How to set the sortkey

I have removed the sort key which is added at Mar 5, 2016. There are two reasons:

  • There are some languages (e.g. Japanese) which use different sort key from the page title. Setting the sort key from "title" parameter in this template avoids to set the different sort key.
  • The feature page can be also categorized other than Category:Features. In such a case, the sort key has to be added the other categories, too. So {{DEFAULTSORT}} should be commonly used to set the sort key.
