Forums: Index > Help desk > Tabs not appearing

I just create Peter Paul Ockenfels (1868-1938) using source info from Thurstan and Robin to build a framework for the code. I then tried to put together the sensor...which seemed to be fine, but the tabs are not showing up. I tried to re-save the sensor, but it's giving me the 'special page' error. Is this a part of the larger problems or something independent?

Also, are the 'Facts about Peter Paul Ockenfels' supposed to be showing up at the bottom of the page? Did I forget something there? That doesn't appear to be visible on other pages.

The "fact box" is from my coding: take out the __SHOWFACTBOX__ if you don't want to see it. Thurstan 20:31, April 6, 2010 (UTC)


Donna Jo Stephens (1945-2002) has been republished more than once since its "tree" tab appeared on its sensor page, with no error messages, but the tab is still not appearing on the article. In recent days I've had similar failures with other pages. Has anyone else had this sort of problem recently? -- Robin Patterson (Talk) 05:11, November 12, 2017 (UTC)

Pages that have been "upgraded" to SMW often lack the "|globals={{get globals}}" parameter on {{Showfacts person}}, with the failure of the tabs to show as the resulting symptom. Thurstan (talk) 06:11, November 12, 2017 (UTC)
Thank you again. I now recall having one of those a few months ago. Something else to try to remember more often! -- Robin Patterson (Talk) 08:49, November 12, 2017 (UTC)
