Usage of /infobox subpage

Post by mgiraud » Wed Aug 31, 2016 3:47 pm


I see that you are introducing /infobox subpages, e.g. Inserter/infobox

I would like you to share the objective of that work in order to used it properly in translated pages.

I see one interest : the infobox subpage can be called directly from translated pages (inserter/fr for example) and the infoboxes are going to be more consistent (exactly the same information in all the languages). This is possible because Infoboxes are "autotranslated" using translation templates.

Are they other objectives ?

#1: Concistency across all language versions, as you mentioned
#2: Maintainability, when there's a change in a recipe, there's only one place where it needs to be updated
#3: Less server space, by not copying and pasting the template over and over again and manually translate it on every page, we use less server space
