Unreferenced statesEdit

I think all the states should be featured on the template, delinked for those never mentionned - Philoust123 16:50, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

Done! :) -- Renegade54 17:18, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

wikipedia/memory beta link integrationEdit

Those are swell for the templates inclusion on the various state pages, but no so much so for uses on other pages where this template could potentially be used, rather than a list, namely United States of America or North America. --Alan 04:44, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

I tweaked the template a bit. Now if you pass it the optional parameter "noexternal", it won't display the Wikipedia and Memory Beta links, i.e. {{US states|noexternal}} yields
Another problem is the fact that the integration of external links in the template creates a fixed wrong order in the articles. This template should be located at the end of the "in-universe" part of the article, whereas the external links should be in an "Appendices" section after that. -- Cid Highwind 17:10, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
I think I've taken care of that problem as well. Let me know if there are still changes needed. -- Renegade54 20:30, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
This will still lead to problems with articles that do not have just an "External links" sections (as H2), but instead an "Appendices" section (H2) with a H3 section for external links. While this might not be the case for any US state at the moment, I generally think that adding more than the "link box" itself to the template is a bad idea for exactly this reason. It should probably not be done for other templates without further discussion. -- Cid Highwind 11:03, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Agreed. -- Renegade54 13:13, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
