Templates

Hey there. I was reluctant to use your talk page as I was worried I might delete over the page's history, but it seems nothing survived the Wikia transfer :/ Anyway, we've been having difficulty making the following edits work. Ideally it would be like any item (ex:  [Cruel Barb]) where you can switch from the Warcraft 3 infobox to a reforged one. It seems that unlike {{Itemtip}}, {{WC3UnitBox}} doesn't support being wrapped in a {{Versions2}} + "#data:" situation. So if you could take a look in the following weeks, it's not urgent at all, that would be nice :D Xporc (talk) 08:26, 26 February 2019 (UTC)

Right, that mechanism expects to replace some kind of tooltip, not an arbitrary template. In general, it seems like overkill to duplicate the infobox data just to swap graphics; perhaps something more localized would be better (or just moving the old images into a gallery section). — foxlit (talk) 00:13, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
There is also another way to do this: place the tabs where the images are on infobox so you can switch between the original and reforged. The rest of the information in the infobox, otherwise, would be the same throughout both versions. The StarCraft Wiki on Fandom does this exact thing for StarCraft Remastered. But it comes down to being an issue for users with javascript disabled. Alternatively, I think having the older images in the gallery section could work as well. — Surafbrov T / C / P 03:18, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
I'd be reluctant to push down the pictures that have been known by people for so many years now ... Maybe then edit {{WC3UnitBox}} to support both WCIII and Reforged pictures like the Starcraft wiki yes Xporc (talk) 08:10, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Could you add these alternate templates to the Arthas (Warcraft III), Kel'Thuzad (Warcraft III), and Sylvanas Windrunner (Warcraft III) pages?

The names and tab order should be...

Arthas: Paladin, Death Knight

Kel'Thuzad: Lich, Necromancer

Sylvanas Windrunner: Ranger, Banshee, Dark Ranger

Until we can find something that works I copypasted your infoboxes to their respective pages, and it doesn't look that bad actually Xporc (talk) 12:04, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
It looks fine for the ones with two infoboxes, but definitely shouldn't be permanent. A tabbing method for this stuff should be implemented else just have separate pages for each unit and have a designated page for the lore. Sylvanas Windrunner (Warcraft III) is definitely not a good idea and it even looks bad for mobile users. — Surafbrov T / C / P 13:08, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
