Re: DefaultSort & German articles

Difficult to automate indeed: Des Abend s (in the evening) but Frühlings Ruf, Des (the call of Spring). I would think that argues for keeping things under "D", but I'd still like to understand WP:de's rationale. I still can't find a print index that ignores articles; an English datapoint i...

Re: DefaultSort & German articles

I found the WP:de guidelines too, though not yet any related discussions (there are a few pages not in compliance, like [[Des Antonius von Padua Fischpredigt]] and [[La danza (Rossini)]]). What I would like to learn is whether there has been a general shift recently: my understanding is shaped by th...

DefaultSort & German articles

I'm not sure if this has been discussed elsewhere: [[Der Blumenbrief (Franz Schubert)]] sorts as " Blumenbrief, Der", before [[Das Abendroth, D 627 (Franz Schubert)]]. "Abendroth, Das" would make sense to an English-speaker, but those of us who have experience with German indices...

Re: Schubert & CheckMissing

Schubert's page is a hand maintained list (with a lot of links that have become redirects: e.g. ''An die Laute'' points to ''An die Laute, D 905''), and newer pages haven't been added yet. If you look at http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php?title=Franz_Schubert&curid=2620&diff=1194612&oldi...

Re: Dating of subsequent editions.

I see what you mean: changing the date causes No. 18 https://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Ecce_panis_angelorum_(Giovanni_Croce)#General_Information to disappear from MultiPubList. The template page is probably on Barry's watchlist: https://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Template_talk:MultiPubList#Dating...

Re: Schubert & CheckMissing

Today the behavior of the 2 versions in the history is different, but I'll keep the null edit trick in mind. I'm reminded of an amusing item I once came across in the physics library called the Journal of Unreproducible Results. :roll:

Schubert & CheckMissing

The Franz Schubert page http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Franz_Schubert is in need of updating, but I'm terribly puzzled by the different output of Template:CheckMissing after I removed Recent_additions (i.e. my 2 edits of Sept 7: http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php?title=Franz_Schubert&action=...

Re: error message with addworks

Don't the new and old processes both involve filling out the same form? Now instead of one set of instructions there are 3 different ways (from the composer page, from the work page, from a different composer page) to get to 'step 2' with various amounts of information pre-filled-in, which is more c...

Re: error message with addworks

Great, I've started to fiddle with [[Help:Automated_add_score_process]]. I'm not sure what happens when one fills in a new composer name: does it appear in black with a blue superscript prompt to create a composer page? Or should there be a Form:New composer pointer? Can the nutshell process at the ...

Re: error message with addworks

Glad to chip in as I'm able, Max, but I don't even know what the old process is anymore. Better than a deadline might be simply labeling out of date documentation with pointers to whatever the current process is supposed to be. Would I be able to help figure this out by looking at help-page historie...

Re: error message with addworks

Sorry; I did indeed introduce a new topic. The left side menu is an example of yet another fork: the "Add scores to CPDL" link points to [[ChoralWiki:Add Music]], a redirect to [[Help:Automated add score process]]. On the Main page, "Volunteer at CPDL/Add scores" points instead t...

Re: error message with addworks

Sorry: to be clearer, I mean that after I logged back in I couldn't remember how to again find the form and had to run quite a maze. After typing AddWorkForm and Add work, I returned to the main page, clicked "Add work", scrolled to "Add Choral/Solo Vocal Work, or New Edition" wh...

Re: error message with addworks

Hi Max,

Thanks for the explanation. I logged out and am back in business, after figuring out that I didn't really want AddWorkForm or Form:Add work. The Help:Score submission guide really could use rewriting, it seems.
