Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-07-06 01:55:53 UTC

It is posible to display category dependencies (category path) as you can see at . This
feature is probably activated in ... / ??? .

If you take a look at [[en:Template:Articlespace]] you will see
- neither the templates used to generate this template
- - the parameter names (if used)
- - - the actual values (values at the current page) of the parameters
- nor the graph showing how the template is generated / build

The request:
- offer an option to display the information mentioned above to allow newbees a
better understanding of how (nested) templates are build and working
- activate this feature by default for the template namespace where the (normal)
pages are quite small
- include specialities as (infinite recursion) detected anyway and available in
some (test) versions I have seen these days

- this kind of *debug* feature would make fault finding easier
- - time saving
- this would atract contributors to the template namespace

Relation to bug 662: Templates inside template parameters

Versions with bug 662 (where the  patch is available)
render templates very odd. The request would offer some help and a better
readability of affected pages.

Can someone summarise this issue in plain English? The URL mentioned in comment
0 seems to be broken.
