Expression error[edit]

Dagestan map
Ethnic groups in Dagestan

I'm trying out this template to put two maps side by side, as shown here. Does anyone know what's going wrong? And is this a template worth keeping? --Peter Talk 05:06, 12 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just out of curiosity, in what type of situation do you foresee using 10 images like this? I wouldn´t want to see people start using this as a replacement for gallery.Texugo (talk) 16:52, 12 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
10 images would definitely not be a good idea. Could we reduce that to just three, in case of useful map juxtapositions like this example? My template-fu is very weak, otherwise I'd do this myself. --Peter Talk 18:10, 12 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm no wizard either. I couldn´t spot the mistake that's giving that error either.
Are there non-map uses for this template? Renaming it to "Multiple maps" might discourage some potential gallery-style vacation snapshot arrangements. Texugo (talk) 21:01, 12 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think that rename would make plenty sense. We could still use it for things like comparing Wikivoyage screenshots, but the name would discourage gallery-style use. --Peter Talk 21:10, 12 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've changed the name now. Is there anything else people would like to see before removing the experimental tag? Right now I've only used this in Dagestan, but I could see it being useful perhaps for adding a (very travel relevant) linguistic map of Sierra Leone next to the regions map there. --Peter Talk 03:25, 4 April 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don't know if this is what's causing the problem, but this template has a dependency on "Template:Multiple image/numImgs", which has not been imported. -- Ryan • (talk) • 21:31, 12 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That did it, thanks! --Peter Talk 02:05, 13 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Non-map usage[edit]

I answered my own question. What about this usage? Texugo (talk) 18:28, 18 April 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We want to discourage using this template for galleries, I think, but that example is clearly good. --Peter Talk 20:05, 18 April 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yeah, I would even recommend keeping the current title, even though my use was obviously not for maps. Texugo (talk) 20:51, 18 April 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
