:Hi Sylvie, I have fixed the links in the {{tl|tip}} templates you directed me to on the page [[Czech Republic Getting Started]]. I have also added an example to the template description page to show how this was/can be achieved. --[[User:Cottrells|Steve]] {{toolbar|[[User talk:Cottrells|talk]]|[[Special:Contributions/Cottrells|contribs]]}} 06:58, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
Thank you very much, Steve. I really appreciate your quick response.[[User:Pysnaks|Pysnaks]] 15:00, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
== Search and replace link ==
:Hi Lynda, I have replaced the majority of all the external links to the FHC Portal to a new article [[Family History Center Portal]]. The [ handful remaining] did not match search string wikicode and will be easier to tackle individually. I found that the link in addition to be included on many English parish pages was included in the template used to create the hundreds of FHC pages. --[[User:Cottrells|Steve]] {{toolbar|[[User talk:Cottrells|talk]]|[[Special:Contributions/Cottrells|contribs]]}}
 Steve, thanks so much! [[User:Averyld|averyld]] 22:01, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

Great, thanks so much. Will use it for them. [[User:Sandralpond|Sandralpond]] 13:17, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
Hello Steve, We just removed a strange topic on the Baden page sidebar but were told later that you probably should have done that.  If so, It was for Merchant Marine and Heraldic visitations.  Has the removal affected others.  In the past it hasn't but perhaps this changed.
== FHL template place link not working ==
Hi, Steve, I've tried a link using the FHL Template for a place search: {{FHL|Utah, Beaver|place|disp=county items}}. What have I done wrong? I get an "Oops" [[User:AdkinsWH|AdkinsWH]] 21:44, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
:I think this is a bigger issue than you first thought. It looks to me as if the format of URL for FHLC searches has changed, and that the {{tl|FHL}} template need a overhaul so that the links in the wiki using this template will work. In short it's not something you have done, but changes made by the FamilySearch engineers. --[[User:Cottrells|Steve]] {{toolbar|[[User talk:Cottrells|talk]]|[[Special:Contributions/Cottrells|contribs]]}} 20:47, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
::Steve - you are wonderful! the place search is working again, and I understand you are working hard on some of the other searches. Can't thank you enough! [[User:AdkinsWH|AdkinsWH]] 21:41, 19 June 2013 (UTC)
Hi Steve, is the linking to the catalogue changed permaantly. Its been dysfunctional for a long time. I have about 100 links using the {{FHL|England%2C+Suffolk%2C+Badingham|subject|disp=Badingham}} format <nowiki>{{FHL|England%2C+Suffolk%2C+Badingham|subject|disp=Badingham}} </nowiki><br> It looks like its not a good idea to link to the catalog anymore. Maybe will have to wait till the Beta period ends, which appears not to be anytime soon. [[User:Donjgen|Donjgen]] 04:13, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
== Template help ==
Steve, could you take a look at the formula over at&nbsp;my [ Help_me_create_template]&nbsp;page? You made a few adjustments while at WDYTYA conference, but I have not been able to remember what adjustment you made, and I can't get the template to work. I need help.[[User:MannAE|Alan]] 05:47, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
== Idaho page I messed it up ==
Hi, Steve, I'm screaming for help. Somehow, I made a serious mistake on the Idaho page this afternoon (using wyzer17 username). The top of the page should have the image, the online collections banner, and probably the counties list. Then below the info box, the text should fill more space right to left. I tried undoing, but not soon enough. So I was trying and trying, but only filled up a lot do edit history.
Hope you can once again come to the rescue. I'll be at the meeting tomorrow, but then out of town until next Tuesday.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Wilma Adkins 10:34 pm, 23 July, 2013. My iPad doesn't have tildes.
