Revolutionary Sticker for Sir Charles Asgill. I've nearly done it, but it isn't quite right.

This is what I did, but my IT skills are useless, and I haven't got it right. If anyone could help me I'd be most grateful.

|image= British Flag
|rank= Captain 
|unit= First Foot Guards 
}}

It is units plural even if only served in one.

So it should read

| units = First Foot Guards }}

See

Sorry, I misread the page.
She has the new template Sticker, which doesn't have units, only has image, rank, and unit

Many thanks but the suggestion of adding an 's' to 'unit' completely fouled it up!
It is almost right as it is but is missing a British flag.  Please see here: https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Asgill-2&public=1

Anne -- try using image= Flags-2.gif in place of the image= British Flag

Absolutely perfect now - many thanks for the advice.

Where you have written "British Flag" - it needs to be a .jpg, a .gif, or a .png.  Just putting the words in there doesn't work.

so you would have image=Flags-2.gif

Thanks Ros, but the problem has already been solved. See above.
Melanie's answer didn't show due to timezone gaps.
Yep -- Ros and I have cross-posted numerous times!

Anne, wonderful profile!  I very much like the image that you have selected for the profile picture, it gives it a nice bit of color and history.

It looks like you've worked out the new sticker - congratulations on that!  I created the category for his unit to take this profile out of the maintenance category.  On the new sticker, the unit name and category should always match.

He now appears in the category: 

Category: 1st Regiment of Foot Guards

As he is Notable and an important figure in the American Revolution, I also added the 1776 Project Template and added the category: British Units in the Revolutionary War.  Please let the project know if you need any help with anything at all and I would like to extend an invitation to join the project as well: 1776 Project

Thanks again for making great profiles!

Thank you for your kind comments, which are much appreciated SJ Baty.  The image cost me £200!!  It is a mezzotint (100 were created of which I own one) and this I subsequently had colourised, which is where the cost came in!  Actually, the life and times of Charles Asgill has just jumped up several notches with a book coming out in America on 15 September 2020 and this will reach the UK at the end of this month.  I have just added this information to his bio and hope it is not inappropriate to do so? You may wish to check the page to see that all is as it should be?

Thank you for inviting me to join the 1776 Project, but other than my deep knowledge of Asgill himself, I do not think I would be able to give benefit to this project I'm afraid.

Many thanks again for your comments.   Anne
It really looks great and I think it is money well spent!
