Need helping fixing the Early Pennsylvania Settlers Project template

+9 votes

It seems that the original code for this project was:

{{Penn Fleet Passenger}}

This produces the template:

William Penn was part of the William Penn and Early Pennsylvania Settlers community.
Join: William Penn and Early Pennsylvania Settlers Project
Discuss: PENN

as can be seen on William Penn's profile.

Currently, on the project page, the template code suggestion reads:

Add this To get this
{{Pennsylvania Settlers}}
William Penn
... ... ... was part of William Penn's Pennsylvania Settlers community.
Join: Pennsylvania Project

As can be seen on Prudence (Lanckford) Clayton's profile.

However, the {{Pennsylvania Settlers}} template adds (only) the category "Pennsylvania," not the project category.

What I'd like to do is change the {{Pennsylvania Settlers}} template so that it codes the category for the project.  The "old" {{Penn Fleet Passenger}} template currently does this.

thanks in advance for your help

Anyone? :-)
You need a leader to edit the template. Try adding leaders and templates tags to your question ?
I have a leader who can put in the code once I figure out what it is - I guess I'm more asking, how do I code this?

I'll add the templates tag.
If you want this template to add "William_Penn_and_Early_Pennsylvania_Settlers_Project" category instead of "Pennsylvania", this is the code that should be used:

{{Project Box
|category =  William_Penn_and_Early_Pennsylvania_Settlers_Project
|image =  Penn-40.jpg
|image-caption = William Penn
|description = {{Name}} was part of William Penn's Pennsylvania Settlers community.
|project = Pennsylvania
|tag = pennsylvania

It's just a change in the "category" parameter.
thanks Isabelle

Are you saying Penn Fleet Passenger template can be deleted? You are referring to it as old. It is used on only 8 profiles.

And here is the usage of

You are referring to templates as Stickers. They are not. They are both Project Boxes.

On Project page it says to use this template. {{US History|sub-project=Pennsylvania}} 

The old template adds William Penn and Early Pennsylvania Settlers Project category.

The new one adds Pennsylvania Category.

Do you want to add both categories, or just William Penn and Early Pennsylvania Settlers Project

Thanks Ales - I've updated the post to reflect template rather than sticker.

I don't see any reason for the template Penn Fleet Passenger now but not sure we should delete it just yet - maybe someone else has a plan for it - I'll refer back to the project and leader before deleting it.  For now, we should have a template that is named {{Pennsylvania Settlers}} and it should link to:

Once the template is fixed I can correct the 8 profiles with the old template to the new.
