Contents

Purpose

This template simplifies the formatting of example template calls in non-article pages, such as Iron Chariots Wiki:Templates, when a link to the page for the template itself is desired. Use Template:T if no link is desired (for example, in usage notes on template pages where the link is unnecessary).

This template should never be used in articles in the main namespace.

Usage

  • {{tl|Template name}}
  • {{tl|Template name|parameter}}
  • {{tl|Template name|parameter1|parameter2}}
  • {{tl|Template name|parameter1|parameter2|parameter3}}
  • {{tl|Template name|parameter1|parameter2|parameter3|parameter4}}

Mnemonic: The name "tl" is short for "template link".

Examples

With one (required) parameter, this template provides the same simple functionality as Wikipedia:Template:Tl, but with the monospace font formatting of Wikipedia:Template:Tlx:

With more than one parameter (up to five, total, including the template name), it works basically like Wikipedia:Template:Tlx, except without the sister-project or language features of that template:

  • {{tl|wikipedia|''Article title''}}{{wikipedia|Article title}}
  • {{tl|wikipedia|''Article title''|''Display title''}}{{wikipedia|Article title|Display title}}
  • {{tl|wikipedia|List of apologetic works|Apologetic works}}{{wikipedia|List of apologetic works|Apologetic works}}

Remember, the purpose of this template is to display the raw wikicode of an example template call.
