Place Template

The template is fine but for some reason if it is used out of England, the template listing pick up all England's categories only. I looked at the code and I don't see how it can be directed to pick up other than England's. Would like to add this to Pennsylvania and Maryland but Poor Law Unions and Nobility are two topics that do not belong in either place. Is there a way to tweak Place template further so it will pick up specific USA's states as well as other countries? dsammy 17:11, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Yes another parameter could be added and used with if statements to turn on/off different topics depending on the jurisdiction. Is there a definitive list of topics for all places and then optional ones which are specific to certain places, for example you've said that Poor Union Laws and Nobility should only be used for places in England? --Steve 22:46, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
OK I came up with another solution. The template will now check to see if the article exists before display a link for it in the navbox. Please let me know if this meets your needs. --Steve 23:53, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
It worked the way it should be. Now to figure out the "Infobox" stuff. dsammy 00:51, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Topics that use a different naming style

I noticed the Community Meeting Agenda 28 July 2009 mentioned this template and a discussion about the style to be used when naming article about Native American Indians. Once the working group has made their decision, I suggest it is noted in the Style Guide and this template can be amended to pick up articles that adhere to the approved style. --Steve 18:31, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
