Thanks for the maps

I changed the zoom level in Template:Infobox stream instead of in the underlying widget.

I've added a flags=lat,long,info,lat,long,info argument to the Widget:Map that takes triplets of latitude, longitude, and an info string to attach to the flag. I then changed Template:Infobox stream to place a flag on the specified coordinates (with a tag of the stream name).

That is perfect!!! Thank you so much. My student returns on Monday and should add more streams and bug photographs.

Jim, is it possible to force the page content to start below the map? It turns out that if we have fewer than 10 bugs on a page, the TOC does not reach the end of the map frame and the content slides up the side of the page. Thanks Declan

There are a number of ways to approach this, a couple are:

  1. build the magic __TOC__ word (or one of the {{TOC...}} words into your Rivers/Project Nav template so that the TOC and your The following are the most common invertebrates collected from this stream site. boilerplate are all in the same DIV with the map and the infobox
  2. change InsectSection so that it doesn't start until both left and right margins are "clear"

I've done the latter because it is easier... although the former might be more flexible depending upon how you end up using the insect templates (particularly on narrow mobile displays).

Indian Kill is an example page that currently has fewer than 10 insects. Is this the layout you are after?

Thanks Jim, That's perfect. Indian Kill will have more, but is just a starter page until my student counts that sample....perhaps tomorrow. But yes, the format change is what I needed. otherwise it tended to split the insect template text from the image. I appreciate the help. Declan
