Two steps forward, several steps back in November 2010 (for reasons Wikia has not fully explained), and a few steps forward. Then a similar story in January 2011 (which may have something to do with the fact that we do not have the latest available version of SMW).

Thurstan has just restored the "and"; I've since restored the "Children of" then changed it to "Offspring of". Currently we can't use {{String}} the way we could before Nov 2010. So some of Phlox's note above is currently untrue. I've left the "Children of" string thing commented out in case we can restore it.

We also suffered Wikia's "New Look" last year. The space between the infobox and the left-hand side of the usable part of the screen is now almost invariably too narrow for a decent children box, so we have to let it sit below the infobox. That can lead to redesign of the child box, using the full available width.

How hard would it be to add a spouse or all spouses in another column? Many contributors would like that, as far as one can judge from the way they list children when not using a standard box.
