emdash vs endash

Talk status
This discussion is done.

Shouldn't this template use emdash (—) instead of an endash (–)? Sounds better in my opinion, from a grammatical point of view. Brenton (contribs · email · talk) 05:50, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

It probably should use the emdash. That being said, places on the wiki that are not using this See also template are probably using a hypen, which would probably look odd side-by-side with the See also template. My vote would be for converting when the majority of the articles get upgraded to using the See also. This would be so that the articles stay visually consistent. :) --Maffblaster (talk) 05:09, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

Sorry, couldn't find out how to use it for /etc/portage/patches, result looks like /etc/portage/patches — provide a way for users to apply patches to package source code.

Use {{See also|/etc/portage/patches}}. If i find a way to keep the same syntax for it (with colon), i will be mentioning it here later.

So I haven't tries enough before asking. Thanks for your help!! --Charles17 (talk) 18:18, 31 July 2017 (UTC)

Multiple article descriptions

Talk status
This discussion is done.

Multiple article descriptions are displayed when using the See also template with certain pages. For example /etc/portage/make.conf:

/etc/portage/make.conf — used to customize the Portage environment on a global level.

This happens because /etc/portage/make.conf transcludes DISTDIR which has its own article description property. Is this intended behavior?--BT (talk) 09:17, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

BT , no, it was not my intention when creating the template for it to display more than one description. My time is limited, so I'll post this discussion in our IRC channel to see if anyone has time to look into a fix. Perhaps it can be something for Brian Evans (Grknight) or Cronolio . --Maffblaster (talk) 16:19, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
Yes, it was transcluded from DISTDIR. See diff for example how to manage it. Also usefull special page. --Cronolio (talk) 17:41, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for fixing this.--BT (talk) 23:21, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Links that include relative paths break description

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing as of July 3, 2020.

Links that include relative paths (the / character) appear to break the See also template. For example:

Code: * {{See also|Filesystem/Security|text=Filesystem security}}

Is rendered like:

This should be fixed if possible. --Maffblaster (talk) 18:52, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
