How do I put a link on my own composer page?

Post by Evatoller » 20 Jul 2020 14:20

Usually when I have made an arrangement of some other composer's song, there is a link on my own composer page to the main page of that song (e.g., there is such a link for Stille Nacht). However, sometimes this link is missing. I would like to put in the missing links on my own composer page, but haven't found out how to do this easily.

I tried to de-automate the page to be able to edit it, but that made all the previous entries disappear (or rather, become invisible).

I am prepared to save all the entries, de-automate, and then put in all the entries manually, but will first ask if there is some easier solution that I've missed.

I am not sure why not all your works are listed; I am working on it, might take a day or so.
Since your composer page is automated, the way to include a work there, is to have {{Composer|Eva Toller}} or {{Arranger|Eva Toller}} on the work page.
I have changed your composer page so that it shows your arrangements separately; feel free to change the wording if you wish.
The template {{Arranger|Eva Toller}} that appears on some work pages automatically places the work in the Category:Eva Toller arrangements. Then it can be included or excluded in SortWorks statements.
{{#SortWorks:}} can be used to sort by any category, such as language or genre.

I have added a section "Missing from…" to your composer page, and I am working on changing all these works. In most cases, "Arr. " or "Arranged by " has to be changed to {{Arranger|. I will finish this soon.

Now all is on your composer page – 165 works, I think.
Let me know if there's anything else.

Wow, Barry, that's a lot of work you have done! Thank you very much indeed!

I will soon add some more new songs, hopefully it will be easier now.

Sincerely, Eva
