Navigation link missing[edit]

  • The annual "Aviation accidents and incidents" templates for 1920 through the present include links that allow you navigate easily to past and future years. This template, however, differs from that standard format in that it offers no link to the "Aviation accidents and incidents in 1920" template. That oversight needs to be corrected.

This can easily be achieved by adding "| year = 1919". However, due to the existence of (the redirect) Template:Aviation accidents and incidents in 1918, this will also result in a "1918" navigation link, which is undesirable. I have nominated Template:Aviation accidents and incidents in 1918 for deletion. Once it's gone, I'll come back and make the change to this template. (Note: An alternative would be to recode this template so it doesn't use the common {{Aviation accidents and incidents}} template, but then the formatting of this template would need to be maintained separately).

Template:Aviation accidents and incidents in 1918 has now been deleted, so I've added "| year = 1919" and the link to the 1920 template is now displayed. DH85868993 (talk) 23:01, 29 November 2014 (UTC)
