Template status and plansEdit

I created this template as something that could be applied to all article pages to provide links to related content both within the wiki (in forums, blogs, etc.) and on external sites like YouTube.

In its present form, there are no options in the template - it just uses the page name to search within the wiki and the page name plus "Red Dead Redemption" to search external sites.

My plans:

  • Add an option to override the page name for searching. For some pages, a shorter or otherwise altered version of the page name might be better for searches.
  • Add an option to override the default "Red Dead Redemption" external search string. This is needed for Red Dead Revolver pages, pages that already have "Red Dead Redemption" in the title, etc.
  • Consider adding other external site searches such as Wikipedia (good for items like weapons with real world equivalents). These searches should also include the ability to override the default search phrase.

Status updateEdit

As noted by the strikethroughs above, I completed all of the original plans today. The template now has parameters for altering the page name and prefix search strings. These have been tested successfully on Revolver pages, etc. The template also now includes Wikipedia, Google, and Google Image searches.
