Summary

This template allows for the consistent presentation of bugs and their easy categorization.

Parameters

Bug
Parameter Scope Description
description or 1 required A brief description of the bug.
fixedby or 2 optional The name of the patch that fixes the bug.
fixversion or 3 optional Adds a version number to the fix text.
fixdetail or 4 optional Extra detail about the nature of the fix if this isn't obvious from context.
confirmed optional Adds unfixed bugs to the "Confirmed Bugs" category. If missing, blank, or 0, bugs are instead added to the "Unconfirmed Bugs" category.

Bugs can be marked as confirmed when either multiple people have experienced the bug and reported it online, or if a bug is experienced in game and the reason for it can be confirmed in the Creation Kit. In the latter case, use the modnotes parameter to document the reason.

dlc optional This alters the category used so it's easier to determine and correct DLC-specific bugs. Please use either the full name (e.g., "Dawnguard") or the common two-letter abbreviation, as listed below.
Skyrim
DG - Dawnguard
HF - Hearthfire
SC - Space Core
section optional Specifies a talk page section relevant to the bug for unconfirmed bugs.
modnotes optional Detail about where the cause of the bug lies and how to fix it. By default, this will not display for most users. May be overridden by specifying a style for the modnotes class in common.css which includes a "display:inline" property (or similar, according to the user's preference).
trackerid optional Adds a link to the specified bug description on the unofficial fix website.
nobullet optional If non-blank, causes the template not to include the usual level of bulleting. Used purely for formatting purposes.
nocat optional If non-blank, does not add the bug to any categories.
nofixmsg optional If non-blank, does not display the "This bug is fixed" message.

Examples

The categories for the bug examples below assume they're being placed in appropriate namespaces.

Just the bug

{{bug|There's something wrong.}}
  • There's something wrong. ?

This would also add the page to the category (Namespace)-Unconfirmed Bugs.

Bug for a DLC

{{bug|There's something wrong.|dlc=DG}}
  • There's something wrong. ?

This would also add the page to the category Skyrim-Dawnguard-Unconfirmed Bugs.

Confirmed bug

{{bug|This happens to a lot of people.|confirmed=1}}
  • This happens to a lot of people.

This would also add the page to the category (Namespace)-Confirmed Bugs.

The bug and a fix

{{bug|There's something wrong.|UOP}}

This would also add the page to the category Oblivion-Bugs Fixed by Unofficial Oblivion Patch.

The bug and a fix with a version

{{bug|There's something wrong.|UOP|1.5}}

This would also add the page to the category Oblivion-Bugs Fixed by Unofficial Oblivion Patch.

The bug and a fix with a version, plus extra detail

{{bug|There's something wrong.|UOP|1.5|the wrong thing is fixed}}
  • There's something wrong.

This would also add the page to the category Oblivion-Bugs Fixed by Unofficial Oblivion Patch.

Illustrating the nobullet param

{{bug|There's something wrong.|UOP|nobullet=yes}}

There's something wrong.

This would also add the page to the category Oblivion-Bugs Fixed by Unofficial Oblivion Patch.

OpenMW

For a Morrowind bug fixed only in OpenMW, use just {{Bug|OpenMW}} (or {{Bug|OMW}}, which is equivalent but geekier). A Tribunal expansion example, with version:

{{Bug|Description of bug.|OpenMW|0.43.0|dlc=TR}}
  • Description of bug.
    • PC Only This bug is fixed in version 0.43.0 of OpenMW.

This would also add the page to the category Tribunal-Bugs Fixed in OpenMW.


For a bug fixed in the original Bethesda engine by a patch project and also fixed in the OpenMW engine, use {{Bug}} for the patch project and add {{OpenMW}} afterward, with list markup to make it match the display of the patch project's line. Example:

{{Bug|Description of bug.|MCP}}
**{{OpenMW}}


To do: {{OpenMW}} does not yet support categorization or version number; the code for that needs to be ported from {{Bug}} into {{OpenMW}}. Categories will also need to be created as needed; they're all redlinks right now.
