On [[Edward (Burkhart M. Schürmann)|this score page]] we have two lyricists who require their dates mentioned on the page. The current arrangement is a little unsatisfactory: would it be possible to have the option to put each composer's dates after their name, instead of at the end of the line? Thanks. --[[User:Bobnotts|Bobnotts]] <small>[[User talk:Bobnotts|'''talk''']]</small> 16:31, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

On [[Darthulas Grabesgesang, Op. 42, No.3 (Johannes Brahms)|this page]] the text really should read "'''Lyricist:''' Johann Gottfried Herder (create page) after Ossian (pseudonym of James Macpherson (1736-1796))".  So add to the wishlist:

#"create page" for red-linked dual authors

#piping option for pseudonyms, if not a fantastically complicated template to do it automatically

Extending this template

Would someone (I'm thinking Chuck or Carlos) be able to extend this template to handle up to 3 individuals? It's rare that this is necessary but it is for O ruddier than the cherry (George Frideric Handel). TIA --Bobnotts talk 03:55, 12 September 2008 (PDT)

Done! You can check the results on the page you cited. —Carlos mail_icon.gif 14:51, 12 September 2008 (PDT)
Many thanks for this, Carlos, and for updating the score page I mentioned. I've just added a link to this on Help:CPDL Templates. --Bobnotts talk 19:23, 12 September 2008 (PDT)

Further development requested

On this score page we have two lyricists who require their dates mentioned on the page. The current arrangement is a little unsatisfactory: would it be possible to have the option to put each composer's dates after their name, instead of at the end of the line? Thanks. --Bobnotts talk 16:31, 10 February 2010 (UTC)


Dual bug and piping

On this page the text really should read "Lyricist: Johann Gottfried Herder (create page) after Ossian (pseudonym of James Macpherson (1736-1796))". So add to the wishlist:

  1. "create page" for red-linked dual authors
  2. piping option for pseudonyms, if not a fantastically complicated template to do it automatically
  3. optional text in place of "and" or simply a kludge to list page on {{LyricistSettingsList|Ossian|cols=2}}. Is there some CiteLyr like CiteCat? Richard Mix 04:55, 22 May 2011 (CDT)
