OMG all the bees. Shame that majority don't have textures. Is there a list of the longest navboxes? Chocohead NagEditsStaff 00:39, 26 August 2014 (BST)

DLP for templates

Is there a technical way to achieve this? Like for example in the Bees Section, the DLP takes care of sorting out all the pages that are listed as "bee", because there's a lot of them missing, like for example the ones available in "Magic Bees" Frenchiveruti (talk) 23:07, 12 November 2016 (UTC)

You mean DPL? There's a manual here. -Xbony2 (talk) 02:04, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, DPL, sometimes I mess the letters up, haha, do you think there's a way? Do you know anyone who knows about DPL active here in the wiki? Frenchiveruti (talk) 02:47, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
There could be a way. Chocohead NagEditsStaff 02:47, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
Could you give me a link to the DPL wiki? I can't find it and you're right with gamepedia's shitty wiki about it, also, where do I look for the DPL version that we are currently using here? Frenchiveruti (talk) 02:51, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
The wiki itself is here, but the best page for reference is this one, as it points to all the other ones you'll need from getting started to trying to do things it was never designed to do (which is basically what the bee templates are at this point).
We're currently using version 3.3.3 of DPL.

Thanks Chocohead! Also, it seems that the DPL for the Nav template worked wonders! Good job :D Frenchiveruti (talk) 03:23, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
I just undid it, sorry... there's a fair amount of red links that DPL can't list. I suppose it could be converted when the red links are pages though. -Xbony2 (talk) 13:05, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
Yeah but there's a lot of red links that are missing too. :/ take for example the Winsome Bee, it's missing along with a lot of others, and even Bees with pages such as the Endearing Bee are missing too. Frenchiveruti (talk) 14:50, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
I think I'll try to knock off these red links and then re-convert it. -Xbony2 (talk) 15:05, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
Something I don't like about how bees are set up... there's a fair amount of bees with conflicted names by different addons >.> like two Lime Bees. -Xbony2 (talk) 15:48, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
When the system was first set up all the names were unique so it was never an issue. Not really sure how easy it's going to be to work around it though. Chocohead NagEditsStaff 15:54, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
Disambiguation, but I'm not even sure which other mod that adds the Lime Bee is from in-game info :P -Xbony2 (talk) 16:01, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
There's a fair chance the bee templates will point to the disambiguation page rather than the mod specific ones, but then again they take so many parameters now I'm sure there's link changing ones to fix that. The Lime Bee is added by Extra Bees at least, not sure what else would add one though. Chocohead NagEditsStaff 16:11, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
The EB all have funny names (like Ashen Bee), with the exception of the Lime Bee. Another addon adds a group of bees with regular names. This is in Infinity 1.7.10, I can probably figure it out but I am lazy. -Xbony2 (talk) 16:25, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
