Setting "nodot=1" suppresses the dot that would otherwise appear at the end of the text the template generates. - -sche (discuss) 04:07, 28 February 2012 (UTC)


The period needs to be removed: Currently this template creates a period at the end of the definition. It should also be removed for the following reasons:

  1. aesthetic reasons
  2. Since the template creates sentence fragment definitions, periods should not be used at the end of the phrase.
  3. The template creates sentence fragments. Thus, it is grammatically incorrect to use a period. 07:31, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Default settings for capitalization and period[edit]

There can be either:

  • -capitalization -period, or
  • +capitalization +period

Right now there iz +capitalization -period, which looks ugly. --Ivan Štambuk (talk) 14:51, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

This should really be discussed for all form-of entries, as they share the same code. But it also depends on whether we want capitalised definitions with a period anyway, which is still up in the air. —CodeCat 15:10, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
