Screwed up custom titles to fix.:

I see the Awesomeness.
Since it was suggested over in another thread.

Both Innocence Virgin On Stupidity and Logical Fallacies (which was supposed to get changed to Logical Fallacies), aren't getting corrected properly.

Are we going to include that Mind over Matter has the middle word not capitalized for some reason?

Does this include Heroic RROD non-Acronymed custom title?
For what I can see, if one title gets a custom title and it is latter reverted/changed, the new custom title will show properly in the page, but not in the Wiki Words.

Rather then fix the individual problems, the overall bug is what should be fixed.

It is a known problem, but right now the Troper Tales redesign is the current priority. Once that's done, I'll bug Eddie again to get onto this.
I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be than me.
Another one is Where's Waldo? showing up under the British title.

Why is that page called by the North American export title?
Australia
The country with a 2 party system
But all the power with independents
Because they're the ones who wrote it. Wiki policy is whoever gets there first gets to decide whether it uses American or British spellings. Either way, the custom title for that one needs to be changed. I'm sure it has a redirect that people can use if they want.
Moment Of Awesome is another one. I just tried to fix it, so it will probably be taken care of soon.

Don't forget the multi-word namespace bug. Or at least I assume it's a different bug.

Someone apparently turned Number of the Beast into "666" (though the custom title doesn't show up in links for some reason.)

What the f**k.

Maybe they meant to do that for the redirects.

I changed the custom title for Number of the Beast. Let's see if the system accepts it.

That was, I think one of the "Let's use the Custom Titler instead of doing a full rename" decisions. I recall that the was some discussion about changing the page to 666, since it's about that specific number, and using Number Of The Beast for the broader concept of "a mark often hidden) that indicates that the person wearing it is in the service of the Big Bad."

It's still a misuse of the Custom Title system to rename a trope to something completely different. I could understand if we made Six Sixty Six display "666", but not Number of the Beast; that's so counterintuitive as to be worthless.

More Friends, More Benefits should read More Friends, More Benefits but the comma is getting lost somewhere along the way despite it being listed as the custom title when checked.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

Nightmare Fuel has been customised to Accidental Nightmare Fuel, and all mentions of "Nightmare Fuel" in the article changed to fit it. In this case, the custom title mechanic has just been used to semi-rename it. Not sure whether it should be changed back to "Nightmare Fuel" or just fully renamed to the new title since Accidental Nightmare Fuel is more descriptive.

Also, not sure if this is the right place, but Death Is a Slap on the Wrist has the custom title "Death Is a Slap on the Wrist" but on the page and wikilinks to it still uses the earlier capitalisaiton. Don't know if it's not just something weird going on with my computer in that case.

That would make a lot more sense if you didn't wiki word Nightmare Fuel.

[up]Actually, I didn't (well not in the normal way). First, I tried putting it in {{ }}s. Then I used [[<Nightmare Fuel> <Nightmare Fuel>]]. And both times, it still did that.

Custom titles are case sensitive. {{Nightmare fuel}} works fine.

Take a look and see what I changed the coding to. Or, if you had simply used "Nightmare Fuel" (no wikiword, no brackets) it also would have worked.

What I did was remove the brackets and use the escape coding ([=whatever you want to show=] ); the bit of code that says "don't apply any other coding that this contains". There are a few things that will over ride that, but not many.

Pointy brackets don't do anything in the wiki-code.

Take That is showing up as Take That despite it saying that it's fixed.

Odd, the page itself is displaying without any punctuation.
