Hmm, back to the drawing board. Seems this template requires allot of other modules Wikipedia has that Iron Chariots lacks.
I think it is important that this template is made to work so that the layout and navigation of Iron Chariots can be brought inline with the other wikis that people are used to using.
As i see it, there are two options. Try to copy all the necessary modules required from Wikipedia, or try to rebuild the template from scratch.
I'm inclined to go with the latter option as it will allow us to simplify the back end, as i'm sure that there are a multitude of additional options on the wikipedia version we will never need. However if this option is taken, i think it is important that the overall functionality of the I/O variables works the same for possible further integration later down the line. In other words, the hierarchical templates that reference this one should still work the same as their Wikimedia Group counterparts.
I'll continue to work on this, but if anyone wants to help out, drop me a message on my talk page.--Murphy 20:30, 14 December 2009 (CST)
