Re: Template for new music publications

Inline documentation {{subst:newpublication}} is misleading. It only worked for me with upper / lower case. This is fixed now. NewPublication, Newpublication, and newpublication all work. I think that a column for season/liturgical use may prove useful to some (not me personally) Correct me if I'm ...

Re: Template for new music publications

Thanks for the suggestions!
These are both used in quite a few publication pages. I will add them to the template.

Template for new music publications

There is now a template for use in creating new publication pages, Template:NewPublication. Comments or suggestions for improvement are welcome.
I am working on a form, it might take a while.

Re: Proper citation style for public domain text

I suggest you also add a References section, and cite the book, like ===References=== *Dickinson, Emily. 1951. ''The Poems of Emily Dickinson: Reading Edition''. Edited by Ralph W. Franklin. Cambridge, Massachusetts: Belknap Press of Harvard University. (or you could use another citation style) Then...

Re: How do I put a link on my own composer page?

Now all is on your composer page – 165 works, I think.
Let me know if there's anything else.

Re: How do I put a link on my own composer page?

I have added a section "Missing from…" to your composer page, and I am working on changing all these works. In most cases, "Arr. " or "Arranged by " has to be changed to {{Arranger|. I will finish this soon.

Re: How do I put a link on my own composer page?

I am not sure why not all your works are listed; I am working on it, might take a day or so. Since your composer page is automated, the way to include a work there, is to have {{Composer|Eva Toller}} or {{Arranger|Eva Toller}} on the work page. I have changed your composer page so that it shows your...

Re: error message with addworks

Thank you, Max! I have continued the process, but it is still far from complete. Help:Score_submission_guide is designed for what the user would see first. The first option is a subpage called "Quick start" , intended as short, summary instructions for new or inexperienced users (or a remi...

Re: error message with addworks

Now instead of one set of instructions there are 3 different ways… I agree with Richard's implication that there should be one set of instructions, but there are (at least) two pages with overlapping information, which is confusing to most, especially new users. Either Automated score process and S...

I have added a warning to the top of Help:Score submission guide, that this page is obsolete.
Also started through editing Help:Automated add score process – see Help:Automated add score process2. Feel free to edit this last ad lib.

Re: Characters in publication titles

Ligatures usually don't cause problems, though there have been discussions about whether they should be used. A list of characters that cause trouble in publication titles can be found at this page – this page currently under construction. Most characters are allowed, but some still cause trouble, e...

Re: Grouping works under a single header

Hello, One possibility is to create a "larger work" page, that contains details about the suite and a list of its component parts. Examples would be here or here . Links to the sheet music files are only on the pages for the individual works, unless there is sheet music for the whole suite...

Re: Cuckoos in the nest

About no. 2: {{NoCo|… can only be used in the {{Pub}} template when all of the works in the publication are by the same composer. Since there is one different composer in the publication, {{MultiPubList}} shows an odd result. I changed a few works pages so you can see the results. (I will add a mess...
