Not new here[edit]

Come on now, I've been editing Wikispecies since 2013, and we interact regularly in the other projects. Abductive (talk) 15:41, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

Setting up Disambiguation page for 2 different taxa and eliminate invalid redirect[edit]


I'm quite new to Wikispecies and trying slowly to master the intricacies of coding for pages. My progress so far is decent but I need help with disambiguation pages. Thiotrix has helped me appreciably but I dislike having to always bother him. You were the first administrator to welcome me here, so I thought I would bother you for a while (LOL).

I have set up a disambuation page for Pachylophus but don't know how to get it to show up when I use the search box. Originally Pachylophus was just a redirect to the genus Oenothera set up under Plantae. What I need to know is how to get the disambiguation page to show up in search when you type in Pachylophus and how to cancel the redirect to genus Oenothera. Thanks for any help you can give me.

@Nytexcome: I have no idea why your disambiguation page was not showing up in the search box. However, I have moved it, to replace the redirect at Pachylophus. Thank you for your contrbutions! Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 12:52, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

Hello again,
In the family Achilidae there are 3 cases of needed disambiguation pages (2 of which I have set up). They are Abas – Alticeps – Callichlamys. I achieved my goal which was "in the search box to redirect a user to a disambiguation page" if they were to type in Abas, Alticeps or Callichlamys. However, something apparently does not look correct on the individual pages. Please give what help you can so that this can be done properly. Thanks againNytexcome (talk) 02:26, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

Bismarckia and daughter taxa on Wikidata[edit]

Hi Andy. Since you're one of the more Wikidata-savvy users at Wikispecies, may I ask for your opinion regarding this thread in the Wikidata project chat? Perhaps fixing it is a walk in the park, but I wonder whether there are any standard solutions or praxis that can be applied, since most likely the same problem also manifests itself with other taxa.
