Picture consensus

We have long-standing consensus to use a different picture here than on the main Trump bio. In my opinion, the recent release of an official White House portrait does not invalidate this consensus, so that I have reverted to the Skidmore portrait for now. What do my fellow editors think: should we keep the long-standing picture or switch to the White House portrait? — JFG talk 23:18, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

Personally, I think we need to update the image whether it be the official presidential portrait or a 2017 HQ photo of him. I'm not a fan of the current image. Corky Buzz by the Hornet's Nest 06:45, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
I might favor using the image that was atop the main BLP until last week. It shows him as president, whereas the pic we’re using here now is older. But I think we need a gallery of options here. Anythingyouwant (talk) 19:11, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

These are the main portraits of Trump that I found on Wikimedia Commons:

Which one do you prefer?

Personally, I prefer B, but if we want use a different portrait for this template, I will vote C. -- Nick.mon (talk) 17:48, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

  • I prefer B, with C as my second option. The others are just poor quality or are not facing the camera directly. Corky Buzz by the Hornet's Nest 18:16, 5 November 2017 (UTC)
  B is arguably the best choice, best picture quality of all of them. I also suggest this matter be closed and a decision made if no one has an objection. 2A02:2F0B:B0FF:FFFF:0:0:BC19:5099 (talk) 08:42, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
  • B, by a country mile.- MrX 18:39, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose B to keep a contrast with the main Trump bio. If we do want a more recent picture than A, I'd pick F, otherwise status quo is fine. — JFG talk 16:34, 30 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Support B The other former presidents Carter and onwards have the official portrait. For consistency, I think it should be changed. Billybob2002 (talk) 01:15, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

Racial views

I would like to get thoughts about where best to place the link to Racial views. Currently it's under Presidency, but it may make more sense to put it under Policy positions or Business and personal. What do others think?- MrX 13:35, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

under business and personal; it's his personal statements that are being discussed in the article, unrelated to presidency or policy positions. (That's how I did in Template:Donald_Trump too) Galobtter (pingó mió) 13:39, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
Agree for the "Business and personal" section. — JFG talk 08:38, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

Hiding sections, but allowing default expansion on certain pages

Is there an equivalent to |state= that would allow one (or more?) of the collapsed sections to be expanded on specific pages? For example, it would make sense for each of the pages linked in those collapsed sections to display this template with their respective sections expanded. It might be a bit of work to implement, but I think it should be possible and preferable to the current template. Has anyone looked into this? - PaulT+/C 15:31, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

In theory this template should use {{Sidebar with collapsible lists}} which'll already give that functionality. But anyhow - with no comment on the merits of doing so - {{Donald Trump series/sandbox|expanded = Russia controversies}} gives (under the expanded content):
Extended content
Others similarly work;only one can be passed into |expanded=, which seems reasonable as only the particular one needs expansion. Maybe something else, like the business section can be collapsed, only if expanding another section, as otherwise its a tad too long IMO Galobtter (pingó mió) 15:57, 31 March 2018 (UTC)
Is it possible to generalize this to apply to each collapsed section? I wouldn't want this to only apply to the "Russia controversies" section since it could be construed as a POV about it in some way. (If this is what you've already done, my apologies. I haven't gotten a chance to look at the code.) Thanks for the option though! - PaulT+/C 16:24, 31 March 2018 (UTC)
Indeed Others similarly work; was not being clear enough, sorry, it should work with the other collapsed sections too Galobtter (pingó mió) 16:54, 31 March 2018 (UTC)
Got it. Thanks! To be clear |expanded= can have the following values: |expanded=International trips, |expanded=Presidential election, or |expanded=Russia controversies to expand their respective sections. Also, I agree that I don't think this should be included in the template just yet. It is getting quite long and I'm in favor of collapsing the "Business and personal" section (see below). Perhaps both changes can be implemented at the same time? - PaulT+/C 17:10, 31 March 2018 (UTC)
I updated the sandbox to hide the last section also. Is it possible to have that last section default to expanded if there is no value in |expanded=? - PaulT+/C 03:20, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

Hiding the "Business and personal" section

This template is continuing to expand. I think it would make sense to collapse the "Business and personal" section. It is below 3 other sections that are currently collapsed. Rather than just make the change unilaterally, I wanted to bring it up here first. - PaulT+/C 15:31, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

2000 presidential campaign

Would it be appropriate to add a link to President Trump's 2000 presidential election campaign under the presidential campaign section? Sovietmessiah (talk) 22:56, 9 April 2018 (UTC)

I think so.  Done (until WP:BRD happens I guess). - PaulT+/C 05:01, 10 April 2018 (UTC)
Thank you! Sovietmessiah (talk) 04:11, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
