Image Protocol[edit]

Is there an agreed protocol to use for the image and image2 variables? Should one be a photo of the terminal and the other should be a aerial view of the runway? Or is it more free form? I have some photos of general aviation airports and wanted to know where I should put them within the template. -Ichabod (talk) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ichabod (talkcontribs) 03:29, 15 January 2014‎ (UTC)

Architect field in Infobox[edit]

Hi. I would like to propose adding the field of "Architect" to the infobox. For famous structures and buildings, it makes sense to cite who designed & built it. It is mentioned in most every article but not in the infobox.

For infobox_museums, it worked via embedding {{Infobox building}}, which has also got a few other architecture-related parameters, like |architectural_style= with this code:

{{Infobox museum|embedded={{Infobox building|embed=yes|architect=The architect}}}}
Infobox airport
Building details
Design and construction
ArchitectThe architect

Can we do the same for Airports? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nconcklin (talkcontribs) 17:11, 7 August 2015‎ (UTC)

ASL elevation display error[edit]

This template has |elevation-f= and |elevation-m= for elevation in feet and meters. |metric-elev= forces the metric value to be displayed first. If only one elevation is provided, the template does an automatic conversion to get the other. If converted value is displayed last, there is no problem. However, if the converted value is displayed first, you just see the unit (m or ft) without the number (e.g. Elevation AMSL m / 411 ft). Example here. Frietjes? MB 18:01, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

User:MB, should be fixed now. Frietjes (talk) 18:06, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

Public transit/parking[edit]

Can someone add parameters for transit and parking here? This is pretty important connection information, available in many infoboxes like {{Infobox station}}, {{Infobox shopping mall}}, {{Infobox museum}}, {{Infobox park}}, and more. ɱ (talk) 17:53, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

Support. Clarify: add |publictransit=, which would display "Public transit access". Vaselineeeeeeee★★★ 19:12, 23 March 2020 (UTC)
 Done for this template. Please adjust the documentation. – Jonesey95 (talk) 14:48, 14 April 2020 (UTC)

Frequency field in Airport Infobox[edit]

I highly recommend the addition of a frequency field in the airport infobox as it is really helpful for people who like aviation and have a tuner for airports.YashPratap1912(CONT.) 17:18, 31 July 2020 (UTC)

Issue with runway conversions[edit]

If only the imperial/US customary values are given for runway lengths, but the metric-rwy option is enabled, then conversions do not happen and the metric column is blank. This needs to be fixed. This issue seems like it's related to the elevation AMSL issue above, but with runway lengths instead. Getsnoopy (talk) 00:58, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
