The current "Exchange price" link on Template:Infobox Item always links to Prices#Grand Exchange Price, however there is no easy way to go to the Exchange: page of the item.

I suggest that we edit the "Exchange price" link to go the Exchange: page of the item, or at least add a way of going to the Exchange: in another way.

Support/Comment - But why not just do it? MolMan 01:41, July 9, 2012 (UTC)

It is one of the most used templates, so I thought that I needed consensus to edit it. Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 01:52, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
I see where you're coming from; but this kind of change isn't something that would ruin everything beyond repair should something go wrong. It'd just be one link change that could easily be undone.

So I can change it now or do I need to wait for the discussion to end, now that I have started a thread? Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 02:00, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
Well, you started the thread after all ;). Just be sure you know exactly what you're doing :).
MolMan 02:02, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
Just change it. I was actually thinking of doing the same earlier. Suppa chuppa Talk 02:03, July 9, 2012 (UTC)

Done, changed it - Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 02:10, July 9, 2012 (UTC)

- Did you account for tradable items NOT on the GE? Just wanna check :P
MolMan 02:12, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
The link (and row) won't be shown if the item is not listed as being tradeable. Suppa chuppa Talk 02:13, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
I didn't but this ^^^ Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 02:14, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
I was referring to items such as Green d'hide blessed set, but upon checking items not on the GE just use the old link before Tyilo's change.

I have no idea why it works there, lol. Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 02:18, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
I was wrong; it did that because I didn't purge. So we need the extra coding to ignore Exchange: or non-GE items, lest we want a bunch of red-links.

Done. I'll leave this open for a few days in case anyone has any input. Suppa chuppa Talk 02:49, July 9, 2012 (UTC)

Comment - the link above the exchange graph did already go direct to the exchange: page, although I don't really see any harm in the change. --Henneyj 18:13, July 9, 2012 (UTC)

Wow, I missed that. -.- thought I looked at every link lol.
