The infobox looks fantastic thanks a lot! But I was wondering if we could maybe add it to the already existing infoboxes? I till try with Klerksdorp. Groete :) Bezuidenhout (kontak) 10:09, 5 Junie 2012 (UTC)

Adding the new code to the generic template could cause problems for the non-South African articles. Rather, I began to translate the field names so that the template will work by just adding the census code and changing the template's name from "Inligtingskas Nedersetting" to "Infobox South African town" (the name should be translated too, for consistency). You can see an example of this on Klerksdorp.--Underlying lk (kontak) 00:50, 6 Junie 2012 (UTC)

Sjabloon:Infobox South African town[wysig bron]

Town stats in Afrikaans: I've worked my way up from rural Cape past the Free State, then stumbled on Klerksdorp, having been revamped by you! I wasn't aware of Sjabloon:Infobox South African town that you're polishing up! After all my hard manual edits of pops. EINA Aliwal2012 (kontak) 20:58, 11 Januarie 2014 (UTC)

Originally I intended to wait to revamp the AF town template until Wikidata accepted population/area and other demographic stats, but it's been a couple of weeks away for several months now so I decided to try and update it regardless. I think it works fine mostly, but parts of it are still untranslated (starting from the name and including many parameters like 'map_caption'), can you help with that?--Underlying lk (kontak) 22:30, 11 Januarie 2014 (UTC)
Many thanks, or should I say baie dankie! All the parameters should be translated into Afrikaans now. If you want to copy an instance of the infobox from the English wiki, you can try and use this page instead of having to rewrite everything. I tried it in this sandbox and it works, but it won't copy any transcluded parameters (usually the demographics for languages and races).--Underlying lk (kontak) 10:50, 12 Januarie 2014 (UTC)
Thanks to u too, for your laborious efforts on af:wiki! Together we will crack it! --Aliwal2012 (kontak) 11:58, 12 Januarie 2014 (UTC)

Transcluded parameters' data missing[wysig bron]

Hi, long time, but I see u are still active here!

Any possibility of this template rendering the language & race data correctly from the stats lookup tables? The last 3 nights I've been capturing them manually for ±60 towns, what an effort! Thanks, Aliwal2012 (kontak) 19:34, 12 Augustus 2015 (UTC)

Hi Aliwal! Did the template ever render language and race figures in its current inception? Racial statistics for example, on en.wiki they were handled by the race1 through 9 metatemplates, but it seems that they were never created on af.wiki. It would be possible to create the template series on af.wiki and implement the function in the infobox, but using the demographical figures directly has been frowned upon for a while on en.wiki, since they tend to exclude some areas such as townships.
The most effective solution to this issue is to copy and paste the infobox from the respective English page, and to substitute it (by adding {{subst: before the template name), as I've done in this edit. It's not very time consuming, and the name of all parameters is translated automatically; all that needs to be done before saving the page is to translate the caption of the skyline image, anything else can be left as it is. I hope this helps! Cheers, Underlying lk (kontak) 02:28, 14 Augustus 2015 (UTC)
