usage example


Another usage example:

{{CopyCC|Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Germany}}
appears as:
Copyright: CC BY-SA 3.0 Germany


This template (and the undocumented template:Copy: is one deprecated?) seem to expect one to type full English words and read abbreviations, which seems backwards to me; worse, the blue letters links to the top of the ChoralWiki:Creative Commons page instead of the #relevant section, making it almost impossible to guess without going to edit mode to see what the argument of the template is.

Hi Richard. Sorry for the slightly late reply (LOL), I'm checking my email box for old template discussions I've missed, and this one was in the list.
I just created a short documentation for template:Copy, which is the "official" copyright template. This one is just an alias and could be easily deprecated after we run a text replace. You're right about the CC licenses, the current behaviour is weird to say the least. The abbreviations were added because they take less space in the already cluttered Editions section, and we could keep them as they are. We now need to make the abbreviations recognizable by Copy so that if someone types {{Copy|CC BY SA}} it will point to the correct page (and section, hopefully). —Carlos (talk) 17:51, 22 November 2020 (UTC)
This last part is done. :) —Carlos (talk) 18:41, 22 November 2020 (UTC)
