Double dot without Israel.[edit]

If the template is used without including Israel, there are two dots between Ireland and Italy. Can the dot be added into the Israel only part of the Template?Naraht (talk) 04:34, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 3 November 2016[edit]


folks, the Supreme Court of Italy and higher than the one corrently enlisted, is this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constitutional_Court_of_Italy Eyesbomb~itwiki (talk) 23:17, 3 November 2016 (UTC)

@Eyesbomb~itwiki: Please clarify which page you want changed from what to what. Are you unhappy with Supreme Court of Italy redirecting to Supreme Court of Cassation (Italy) and not to Constitutional Court of Italy? Many articles use the code {{Europe topic|Supreme Court of|title=Supreme Courts of Europe|countries_only=yes|template=yes}} which produces the below. It cannot be changed by editing Template:Europe topic. It's easy to change the redirect but I don't know whether that would be appropriate when Supreme Court of Cassation (Italy) is the article with "Supreme Court" in the name.

European Union[edit]

Some people want to split this template into EU and non-EU. There's been a bit of an edit war, so I thought I'd kick off discussion.

I think this should not be done because this template is very widely used and I don't see that the division between EU and non-EU is so unique that it alone needs to be flagged up here. Kahastok talk 18:01, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

Agreed. EU versus non-EU is fairly irrelevant for most of the uses, and EU members are still sovereign states. PrimeHunter (talk) 20:04, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

Two problems[edit]

See the template "Made in Europe" in Swiss made for an example.

  1. The header links to Made in Europe - one of Deep Purple's best albums, but not exactly relevant.
  2. Sweden links to Made in Sweden - which is a DAB page with four entries (an album, a band, a film and a TV series), none of which have anything to do with manufacture in Sweden. Unsurprisingly, User:DPL bot has complained. Narky Blert (talk) 00:18, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
I am guessing you fixed this since I can't figure out the source of any particular problem. "what links here" isn't returning anything related to this template, outside of this talk page. Frietjes (talk) 14:47, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

Liechtenstein should link to Switzerland[edit]

... in the case of road rules, as in{{Europe topic|Road signs in}}. Thanks. -- ZH8000 (talk) 12:50, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

{{Europe topic|Road signs in}} creates a link to Road signs in Liechtenstein. You can create a redirect to Road signs in Switzerland but then it should say more about Liechtenstein than a single "(Liechtenstein only)" in a caption, which by the way is otherwise in German and has a placeholder image so there is zero English content about Liechtenstein.
