Templates and Disambiguation database entriesFollow

Is there a plan to make templates for example a mob named mob_name_01 that will allow entering multiple exact database ids and the info for those, and possibly only showing the correct info. The showing corrent info, I'm not as interested in, but would be nice. The important thing is to do it so you can enter the info in the template for multiple db ids. Example? EQ Mob:an undead knight lists 5 specific ids on the disambiguation page
but if you use the EQ template for mobs, you can only specify for one of the mobs. Maybe there is already a way to do it, like comma separated listed, but I don't see a easy formatting way to do that, and make it look good too.

Just asking.

Kind of related, I was wondering if there was a page with database commands for eq listed, or specifically, if there is a way to access a mob's zone by it's id, and level range would be nice also. If it can't be shared, what about making a template for those. With something like that, I think I could go ahead and improve the disambiguation pages for mobs.

Might want to PM fleven or railius directly on this one. I don't know that anyone who is in here regularily would know the answers to either of those at the moment.

That's what I was talking about but where it's able to specify for multiple mobs of the same name with differing stats. I really like the template and the look of it, but so, you can only use it for one mob that I see. It would be nice if you could specify them all in that format then, really nice, if only the appropriate one showed up, but that's just extra. If they all showed up, just so you could note which one was for which zone / event / id or whatever, so readers could tell which one to use.

EDIT: Actually, after thinking about it, I probably should of said something to Bludwyng about adding a zone tag and making them all comma separated lists, and each one in it's own block, would probably work, not positive though. And I guess, I didn't want to through in my ideas, in case there were better ones.

EDIT 2: I found the part about accessing the db to recall some info, will just have to play with it to see, if I can figure out to do the bestiary zone info. http://www.zam.com/wiki/wiki:Internal_Functions#Database_Access_Functions
