Template talk:British Census2Edit This Page

The link function in the template software is dysfunctional. If you change the "disp=" within the FHL link it overrides the link. In other words you can't link to the catalogue with any other word other then a film number in this case. Typically you can link to anything with any word you choose. Is this a programing error?

Hi Don, you say that "the template software is dysfunctional". Can you explain with examples what you mean? You refer to the "disp=" parameter of the {{FHL}} template. This is used to change the link text for that template. It is working. Are you wanting to change the link text used on the {{FHL}} template within this template? If so then you just need to add the same parameter, perhaps even using disp. I've assumed that this is what you are wanting and have made a change to this effect. --Steve (talk| contribs) 14:47, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
Hi Steve, I was relying on the code on the 'Template:British Census 'FHL|{{{1}}}|disp={{{1}}}'. That's why I thought something was wrong. That code does not work. I looked over on the help section and found no reference as to how the 'disp' code works. From what your saying I can use any word, "disp" is not a unique identifier. Donjgen 20:54, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
