Description newdanbutler 2008-03-22 03:26:42 UTC
Recently installed Mediawiki 1.12.0rc1 on top of 1.11.2 (both exhibited the following problem), and then copied relevent template (Infobox ship) over from a private wiki (running MW 1.11.0) where the templates displayed correctly. The provided URL shows the error in the display of the template.

I've narrowed it down to the conditional statements, in that the standard statements within the infobox template display correctly, when no data is inserted into the conditional fields.

The Monobook.css and Common.css files were copied and and pasted from the original to the new wiki, so am at a loss as to why the infobox won't display properly. ParserFunctions were added. Only differences are versions of MediaWiki being utilized.

Any assistance provided would be appreciated, as my only other option is to delete db and reinstall with 1.11.0, to match original wiki.

The problem is the line breaks before the noinclude section in your Template:!. Try putting the <noinclude> directly after the | on the first line. That should fix your template.

Thank you so much! That dd fix it. I was asking at, MediaWiki, Wikipedia....while all had ideas, no one was sure. You nailed it. Thanks (very much) for the time you spent investigating it.
