I would like to change CR={{{cr}}} to Challenge Rating={{{cr}}} and have Property:CR deleted as redundant. Since this is a template used for a lot of creatures, I'm looking for permission first. --Havvy 07:47, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

x0 Template Here[edit]

It's currently being called as a null template inside of an if statement, probably as a dirty formatting hack, and removing it requires a lot of formatting work. This whole template is scheduled for rewrite anyway, so I'm disinclined to do that at present. Instead I'm replacing all of the x0 calls with x1 calls, which is also a blank template that I just made, but won't apply the DSAM cat to all of the pages. - Tarkisflux 07:52, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Altering this stat block[edit]

I am attempting to alter this stat block to better suit my needs. you can find it here. I am starting it off by attempting to add a line for traits, and once I figure it out, I will add stuff that is specific to Bleach D20 (Shikai abilities, Bankai abilities, Shikai abilities granted by Bankai, etc.) However when I attempt to make a section for traits, it does not show up on any statblocks I make (Ex. the Hungry Hungry Construct trait does not show up here.) Anybody know what I am doing wrong?

I'm somewhat tempted to say that what you're doing wrong is "trying to use this template". It's a really big mess that I keep blowing off rewriting, because it's a really big mess. Still, that's not actually helpful to you, so let's take a look...
There are two things going on. The variables in a template are case sensitive and you have a stray capital. Do a search for {{{Traits}}} and replace with {{{traits}}}, and the template should work. You will need to call it on the article pages as |traits though, and you currently have |trait in your example, which would be the second reason for not working. - Tarkisflux Talk 23:04, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
I am using this template because it's awesome (until you update it/make a new one). I'll fix the template on my site sometime. The Dire Reverend 23:29, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
Hey, it's me again with another question. As you can see here, the "Main Hand Zanpakuto" and "Off-Hand Zanpakuto" lines are kind of long. Is there a way to force the column to be too lines so it looks like:
Main Zanpakuto Ability blah blah blach
Shikai Abilities Ability blah blah blach
To condense said ability? The Dire Reverend 21:49, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
You could edit the template to include a line break, <br />, where you want it. That should force it to display on the lines like you want. - Tarkisflux Talk 22:10, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
I think this template should have a parameter along the lines of "|sat=", for the same reason that the racial traits template has a "|specialtype=" parameter; to list the type of an NPC or monster's special ability without it infringing upon the name of the ability (and therefore interfering with the anchors). --Luigifan18 (talk) 23:15, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
Also, the "touch" parameter should have a link to touch attacks. --Luigifan18 (talk) 16:34, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
