Font size[edit]

This template formerly used a font size of 15 px. This means on my screen it was bigger than the article text, which means it unnecessarily draws attention to itself. Presumably on some screens it looks smaller, but it is supposed to look smaller on all screens. So I changed it to a relative size of 90%, in line with {{Christianity}}.

Updating template[edit]

I have updated the template style in accordance with the other related sidebar templates, as well as the merged it with a couple of other overlapping sidebars now obsolete. The current status has three templates: this one, Template:Catholic mariology sidebar, and Template:Roman Catholic Mariology (short format). I would suggest merging the three, while keeping the style of the first (this one), but keeping the code of the second one (Template:Roman Catholic mariology sidebar) in order to make it flexible for extended or specific use (please see the code of the second one for more details). This way, also the third templates would be rendered obsolete. Chicbyaccident (talk) 12:46, 28 May 2016 (UTC)

I have now merged the old long format template with this one, in order to just work with one version. For implementation of the code of the old version, making possible including or excluding specific sections (see "Usage" section in the footer of the template page), please review the code of the latest old version before the merge.


I've collapsed this template to a reasonable size. There's no no need to implement the old flexibility plan from the documentation. Readers can expand to see what they want to see without anything being excluded, or taking up half the page by default.

Now that length isn't a concern, does anyone still feel strongly that the apparitions section must not be expanded? I think it would be good to add more. Remember, it won't affect the default length. Jujutsuan (Please notify with {{re}} talk | contribs) 13:58, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Sure, but what about the headings - are their style in WP:Consistency with other equivalent Catholic templates? Chicbyaccident (talk) 14:26, 16 November 2016 (UTC)
