Is there a reason why external links don't work in scroll boxes? I've noticed if there is an external link in the scroll box, the box will be empty with only {{{1}}} appearing in the box. Is this a bug that can be fixed? - JMAS 21:26, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

  • External links work within a template call only if there is not an equals (=) sign in the URL. The equals sign is reserved for assigning values to template variables and, due to the limitations of the parser, it cannot be used for any other purpose. Unfortunately, it is a "feature" of the MediaWiki software and I don't know of a way to get around it.–SentryTalk 22:34, 6 December 2006 (UTC)
    • Thanks for the heads up. I noticed I need a name got the URL (that does have an = in it I notice) to work in the scroll box by adding " |content= " just after the " {{scroll box| " tag.. - JMAS 18:11, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
      • Hah, ya. I guess that works =)–SentryTalk 22:53, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
