Dative plural -n[edit]

I believe this template is missing a parameter for the dative plural form. I don't know how to add it though. Longtrend 19:08, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

It looks like I messed something up, I'll try to fix it. — [ R·I·C ] opiaterein — 20:29, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
Yeah I was typing too fast and missed a | :) Thanks for pointing it out, it might've taken me a while to catch it. Fixed now, though. — [ R·I·C ] opiaterein — 20:32, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
No problem, thanks for fixing it! Longtrend 20:35, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Wide[edit]

Gee, what a wide table. The columns could easily be less wide, compare e.g. Template:el-a-ος-η-ο-Cπιο, but I don't know how to do that. --JorisvS 20:48, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Leave it.
  1. German has some long words and can use the space.
  2. What else is going to be used by the white space that would be over on the right hand side if the table were narrower? In most cases - nothing. So, just leave it. — [ R·I·C ] opiaterein — 21:22, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
What else is going to be used by the white space that would be over on the right hand side if the table were narrower? - the table of contents, if you have it set so it's on the right side. -- Prince Kassad 21:58, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
If you like your TOC interfering with right-side images and inflection tables, that's your phailbucket. — [ R·I·C ] opiaterein — 22:18, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
  1. The Greek template I showed for comparison has columns that widen as needed, which is ideal also for long words.
  2. Having the forms closer together makes for much easier comparisons between the various forms, due to the eyes not having to move all across the screen. --JorisvS 23:33, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Bold nominative plural if equal to nominative singular: Fenster, Dosenöffner[edit]

I'm not sure how to fix this, but we shouldn't attempt to link to the nominative plural page if that's identical to PAGENAME: there's a spurious bold entry in the declension table for that case. Note that there's no extra ''' in the template. I think the trick would be to replace

|np=[[{{{pl|{{PAGENAME}}{{{2|}}}}}}]]

by something that makes the [[]] part optional.

I've fixed this for all three genders, though it would be easier to handle all cases in de-decl-noun. Test cases are Dosenöffner, Fenster, Spezies. Since it's a lot of added code, it might make sense to do something else.
