Template talk:South America topic


PortalSouth America topic is within the scope of WikiProject Brazil, which aims to improve Wikipedia's coverage of Braziland Brazil-related topics. If you would like to participate, visit the project page. Template This page is a template and does not require a ratingon the quality scale. NAThis page is not an article and does not require a ratingon the importance scale.

This template can be applied to almost any article with a title in the form [[X of South American country]]. Warofdreams talk 01:36, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

Neat, yet some articles are "Topic of Country" wereas others are named "Topic in country". It might be good to add one parametre to the template for that connecting word, and use a Robot to replace all the existing uses of the current template. What do you think? Mariano(t/c) 08:38, 2 December 2005 (UTC)
Yes, I'd been thinking about this. It would slightly complicate the template, but I think that would be worth it in order to be able to use it on so many more articles. I'll test it out on Template:Africa_in_topic as that appears on very few pages at present. Warofdreams talk 12:06, 2 December 2005 (UTC)
OK, if you are going for the change also in South America, don't have any 'friend' robot to do the job, and need a had to change the existing links, just et me know it. Mariano(t/c) 12:12, 2 December 2005 (UTC)
I've now changed the template. It can now be used in the form {{South America in topic|Geography of}}, where the text after the pipe can be anything. So this example will produce the box below Warofdreams talk 14:19, 5 December 2005 (UTC)

Overriding the top level name

I added a second optional parameter, which if provided overrides the top level page. (I also fixed the positioning of the map graphic.) Example: Since there is not and probably never will be a "Flag of South America" page, on "Flag of" pages the template can be called:

Good idea. Mariano(t/c) 08:42, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

Template name

Per here, would anyone object to this template being renamed {{South America topic}}, thereby leaving the of/in specified by its parameter (e.g. {{South America topic|Communications in}}, {{South America topic|Economy of}}, etc)...?  Regards, David Kernow (talk) 02:53, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Aruba? Trinidad and Tobago?

Is there any reason why Aruba is included, when it makes it clear in the article South America that it is not normally regarded as part of the continent and the article Aruba is categorised in Category:Central America rather than Category:South America? I've certainly never heard of it being considered as part of South America before, which is why I question its inclusion here - it would make far more sense to group it with the other Caribbean nations and territories. The same with Trinidad and Tobago - that nation is only extremely rarely considered part of South America. if these are to remain here, then for consistency's sake the Netherlands Antilles should also be included, though personally I'd far prefer it if none of them were part of this template. Grutness...wha? 00:46, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

I think it's best to keep this in line with Template:South America - adding the Netherlands Antilles, and debating what should be included on the South America template's talk page, which is likely to gain more input. Warofdreams talk 02:05, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Panama????

Why is Panama included in this template? Last time i checked Panama wasnt in South America, even if it historically belonged to South America, it is no longer part, so it must go.mijotoba 19:21, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Maybe you should have checked elsewhere. For example, our article on Panama states that it is a transcontinental country, and it is include in Template:South America. I have reverted your removal of it. Warofdreams talk 20:07, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Spanish/Portuguese/French versions of the template

Just wondering if it is possible to find this template in other languages. Thanks! - airezulian —Preceding unsigned comment added by Airezulian (talkcontribs) 17:43, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

To the best of my knowledge, it is only available in French, Romanian and Russian. These languages have interwiki links from the template page. For instance, the French version is at fr:Modèle:Sujets sur l'Amérique du Sud. If you might have a use for it in the Spanish or Portuguese Wikipedia, why not translate it yourself?
