[edit] Duplicate subtitles links

This template is transcluded within the navigation templates for each standard toon type. It is also placed (redundantly) in about 250 a lot of articles on the wiki. This results in each of the subtitles links appearing twice in the left-side navigation. Before going through the tedious process of removing that line from so many articles (or perhaps, asking The Cheatbot to do it), I wonder if it's possible for the template itself to detect this and prevent itself from being transcluded twice in one article? Anyone know?  Green Helmet 13:24, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

It's actually less than 250, but still quite a lot of them. I'll just manually fix them. This has been done for toons that are Shorts, and Big Toons. The other types still need to be checked / fixed if needed.  Green Helmet 14:12, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
Holiday toons are done, sir! wbwolf (t | ed) 15:37, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! I just did another round of 'em, including tgs, mam and character videos. I think they're all done now.  Green Helmet 13:28, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
I've added something temporarily to make a category with all the pages that have this template twice... it's still building the list, keep an eye on the "job queue" length in Special:Statistics, when that reaches 0 it should be up-to-date. --phlip TC 13:45, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
I went through a took care some of the added ones, like misc. games, but there are a couple that seem dubious. Strong Bad Sings comes up, even though it is correctly showing just one set of subs. Character Video Transcripts also appears, but it's in To Be Discussed, so I'm not worried about it. The real tricky one is Who Said What Now?, which is still locked down; one of the sysops will have to take care of that. wbwolf (t | ed) 14:12, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
I think something strange must have happened since I changed the way the category thing worked while it was still processing the changes from the first edit... Strong Bad Sings wasn't showing the category, but the category was showing Strong Bad Sings. I just null-edited Strong Bad Sings and it disappeared from the category... so that was all it took. As for Character Video Transcripts, I think it's something to do with how it has so many nav bars, none of which have subtitles details... it's not causing it to actually have duplicate links though, so not really a problem. The rest (those main pages) look real, though. Who Said What Now? is fixed. --phlip TC 22:40, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for that temp category, Phlip. All cleaned up!  Green Helmet 23:09, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Duplicate subtitle links, revisited

hremail3184 has duplicate subtitle links, presumably because it includes both {{sbenav}} and {{hrenav}}. I don't know if there are any others. --97.65.82.66 17:12, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
