The template link template is a simple macro template used to display a template name as a link surrounded by braces, thus showing how the template name would be used in code. Its primary use is in instruction and documentation. A short example is that the code:

{{Tl|Example}}
generates
{{Example}}

<templatedata>{ "description": "This template displays a template name as a link surrounded by braces, thus showing how the template name would be used in code. Its primary use is in instruction and documentation.", "params": {

 "1": {
   "label": "template name",
   "description": "the template name without the namespace prefix “Template:”, which is added automatically",
   "type": "string",
   "required": true
 }

}}</templatedata>

More complex variations are described below.

Example

Code Result
{{Tl|Void}} {{Void}}
{{Tl2|X1}} {{X1}}
{{Tl2|SISTER=M:|3x}} {{3x}}
{{Tl2|SISTER=wikibooks|LANG=de:|WP}} {{WP}}
{{Tl|1==)}} {{=)}}

This 'Template loop detected: Template:Tlx' template documentation is transcluded for all Tlx family templates (Tlx, Tlxc, Tlxw, Tlxb) [edit].Masterpage  


Basically:

Template loop detected: Template:TlxTemplate loop detected: Template:Tlx

Where parameters might contain "=" characters, use Template loop detected: Template:Tlx instead

Template loop detected: Template:TlxTemplate loop detected: Template:Tlx

For more than 10 parameters, possibly also containing "=", use

Template loop detected: Template:TlxTemplate loop detected: Template:Tlx

The three dots in the examples represent a number of arguments that have been omitted and are not an actual argument.

Purpose and naming

Mnemonically 'Template link expanded'. After Template loop detected: Template:Tlx 'Template link'.

  • This template takes another template-name and some associated pipe-tricked (numbered) parameters (or 'pass parameters'), and displays them as an 'example demonstration' of how the template-name template could be coded, literally. Its primary use is in instruction and documentation.
  • Specifics: Up to 10 pass parameters (numbered or nowiki-keywords) for the specified template are displayed as 'placeholders', and over 10 parameters can be displayed using a coded vertical-bar (as in "&#124;..."). A keyword parameter can be used with equals code &#61; or {{=}} or in nowiki-text: "Template:Tag" or all parameters as a string in "Template:Tag" tags; see Examples at bottom. For more details, see this talk page.
  • Exceptions: If the intended template lists numerous parameters, then perhaps this template should really not be used, and just hardcode the usage with Template:TagTemplate:Tag, for example: Template:Tag. If a vertical display, with parameters on their own lines, is desired, this can also be laid out manually in this manner, or more rapidly done with Template:Tag.

Parameters

  • If given no additional parameters except  'template name' ({{{1}}}),  it presents the same as the similar {{Tl}} macro template -- a blue link nested in curly-braces-- the same as a user would apply the template without parameters, but with a noticeably clearer font and spacing on most modern browsers.
  • Comparatively, Template loop detected: Template:Tlx will not take or display additional parameters, and for minor technical reasons, may be preferred for mere listing and referencing in long pages involving a lot of template expansions.
  • Template loop detected: Template:Tlx has a named parameter |subst=. Setting this parameter to any non-blank value will place the string "subst:" before the template name, linked to Help:Substitution. This is useful to indicate when a template should be substituted. For example Template loop detected: Template:Tlx will display Template loop detected: Template:Tlx. This is similar to the action of the Template loop detected: Template:Tlx template: Template loop detected: Template:Tlx will display Template:Tlxs.
  • Additionally, Tlx will take a named parameter |SISTER= to link interwiki to other sister projects such as one of these examples: |SISTER=M: (Meta), |SISTER=Q: (WikiQuote), |SISTER=S: (WikiSource), etc. allowing documentation or discourse about a template across interwiki boundaries.
  • Tlx will also take a named parameter |LANG= to link to other language Wikipedias, such as one of these examples: |LANG=de: (German), |LANG=sv: (Swedish), etc. allowing documentation or discourse about a template across language boundaries.

Documentation

{{Lorem}} is a generalization of {{Tl}}, {{Tlp}}, et cetera with arguably better readable output. This depends on the browser, but too narrow uses of "{", "|", "}" in conjunction with links can be hard to read.

Usage

{{Lorem|template name}}
{{Lorem|template name|param}}
{{Lorem|template name|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10}}
{{Lorem|template name|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10&#124;more}}
{{Lorem|template name|param&#61;value}}

Up to 10 placeholders for parameters of the specified template

Examples

Note
On the source sister projects, en.wikipedia and Meta, X0, X1, X2,..., X9 are sandbox templates for experimentation on involved templates that need be in template space. An auto-cleansing software facility exists that might be used to duplicate the facility on other Sister projects.

Template loop detected: Template:Tl-navde:Vorlage:Vorlage 2

This 'Template loop detected: Template:Tlx' template documentation is transcluded for all Tlx family templates (Tlx, Tlxc, Tlxw, Tlxb) [edit].Masterpage  


Basically:

Template loop detected: Template:TlxTemplate loop detected: Template:Tlx

Where parameters might contain "=" characters, use Template loop detected: Template:Tlx instead

Template loop detected: Template:TlxTemplate loop detected: Template:Tlx

For more than 10 parameters, possibly also containing "=", use

Template loop detected: Template:TlxTemplate loop detected: Template:Tlx

The three dots in the examples represent a number of arguments that have been omitted and are not an actual argument.

Purpose and naming

Mnemonically 'Template link expanded'. After Template loop detected: Template:Tlx 'Template link'.

  • This template takes another template-name and some associated pipe-tricked (numbered) parameters (or 'pass parameters'), and displays them as an 'example demonstration' of how the template-name template could be coded, literally. Its primary use is in instruction and documentation.
  • Specifics: Up to 10 pass parameters (numbered or nowiki-keywords) for the specified template are displayed as 'placeholders', and over 10 parameters can be displayed using a coded vertical-bar (as in "&#124;..."). A keyword parameter can be used with equals code &#61; or {{=}} or in nowiki-text: "Template:Tag" or all parameters as a string in "Template:Tag" tags; see Examples at bottom. For more details, see this talk page.
  • Exceptions: If the intended template lists numerous parameters, then perhaps this template should really not be used, and just hardcode the usage with Template:TagTemplate:Tag, for example: Template:Tag. If a vertical display, with parameters on their own lines, is desired, this can also be laid out manually in this manner, or more rapidly done with Template:Tag.

Parameters

  • If given no additional parameters except  'template name' ({{{1}}}),  it presents the same as the similar {{Tl}} macro template -- a blue link nested in curly-braces-- the same as a user would apply the template without parameters, but with a noticeably clearer font and spacing on most modern browsers.
  • Comparatively, Template loop detected: Template:Tlx will not take or display additional parameters, and for minor technical reasons, may be preferred for mere listing and referencing in long pages involving a lot of template expansions.
  • Template loop detected: Template:Tlx has a named parameter |subst=. Setting this parameter to any non-blank value will place the string "subst:" before the template name, linked to Help:Substitution. This is useful to indicate when a template should be substituted. For example Template loop detected: Template:Tlx will display Template loop detected: Template:Tlx. This is similar to the action of the Template loop detected: Template:Tlx template: Template loop detected: Template:Tlx will display Template:Tlxs.
  • Additionally, Tlx will take a named parameter |SISTER= to link interwiki to other sister projects such as one of these examples: |SISTER=M: (Meta), |SISTER=Q: (WikiQuote), |SISTER=S: (WikiSource), etc. allowing documentation or discourse about a template across interwiki boundaries.
  • Tlx will also take a named parameter |LANG= to link to other language Wikipedias, such as one of these examples: |LANG=de: (German), |LANG=sv: (Swedish), etc. allowing documentation or discourse about a template across language boundaries.

Documentation

{{Lorem}} is a generalization of {{Tl}}, {{Tlp}}, et cetera with arguably better readable output. This depends on the browser, but too narrow uses of "{", "|", "}" in conjunction with links can be hard to read.

Usage

{{Lorem|template name}}
{{Lorem|template name|param}}
{{Lorem|template name|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10}}
{{Lorem|template name|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10&#124;more}}
{{Lorem|template name|param&#61;value}}

Up to 10 placeholders for parameters of the specified template

This is similar to the action of the Template loop detected: Template:Tlx template: Template loop detected: Template:Tlx will display Template:Tlxs.
  • Additionally, Tlx will take a named parameter |SISTER= to link interwiki to other sister projects such as one of these examples: |SISTER=M: (Meta), |SISTER=Q: (WikiQuote), |SISTER=S: (WikiSource), etc. allowing documentation or discourse about a template across interwiki boundaries.
  • Tlx will also take a named parameter |LANG= to link to other language Wikipedias, such as one of these examples: |LANG=de: (German), |LANG=sv: (Swedish), etc. allowing documentation or discourse about a template across language boundaries.

Documentation

{{Lorem}} is a generalization of {{Tl}}, {{Tlp}}, et cetera with arguably better readable output. This depends on the browser, but too narrow uses of "{", "|", "}" in conjunction with links can be hard to read.

Usage

{{Lorem|template name}}
{{Lorem|template name|param}}
{{Lorem|template name|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10}}
{{Lorem|template name|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10&#124;more}}
{{Lorem|template name|param&#61;value}}

Up to 10 placeholders for parameters of the specified template

Examples

Note
On the source sister projects, en.wikipedia and Meta, X0, X1, X2,..., X9 are sandbox templates for experimentation on involved templates that need be in template space. An auto-cleansing software facility exists that might be used to duplicate the facility on other Sister projects.

Template loop detected: Template:Tl-navde:Vorlage:Vorlage

This 'Template loop detected: Template:Tlx' template documentation is transcluded for all Tlx family templates (Tlx, Tlxc, Tlxw, Tlxb) [edit].Masterpage  


Basically:

Template loop detected: Template:TlxTemplate loop detected: Template:Tlx

Where parameters might contain "=" characters, use Template loop detected: Template:Tlx instead

Template loop detected: Template:TlxTemplate loop detected: Template:Tlx

For more than 10 parameters, possibly also containing "=", use

Template loop detected: Template:TlxTemplate loop detected: Template:Tlx

The three dots in the examples represent a number of arguments that have been omitted and are not an actual argument.

Purpose and naming

Mnemonically 'Template link expanded'. After Template loop detected: Template:Tlx 'Template link'.

  • This template takes another template-name and some associated pipe-tricked (numbered) parameters (or 'pass parameters'), and displays them as an 'example demonstration' of how the template-name template could be coded, literally. Its primary use is in instruction and documentation.
  • Specifics: Up to 10 pass parameters (numbered or nowiki-keywords) for the specified template are displayed as 'placeholders', and over 10 parameters can be displayed using a coded vertical-bar (as in "&#124;..."). A keyword parameter can be used with equals code &#61; or {{=}} or in nowiki-text: "Template:Tag" or all parameters as a string in "Template:Tag" tags; see Examples at bottom. For more details, see this talk page.
  • Exceptions: If the intended template lists numerous parameters, then perhaps this template should really not be used, and just hardcode the usage with Template:TagTemplate:Tag, for example: Template:Tag. If a vertical display, with parameters on their own lines, is desired, this can also be laid out manually in this manner, or more rapidly done with Template:Tag.

Parameters

  • If given no additional parameters except  'template name' ({{{1}}}),  it presents the same as the similar {{Tl}} macro template -- a blue link nested in curly-braces-- the same as a user would apply the template without parameters, but with a noticeably clearer font and spacing on most modern browsers.
  • Comparatively, Template loop detected: Template:Tlx will not take or display additional parameters, and for minor technical reasons, may be preferred for mere listing and referencing in long pages involving a lot of template expansions.
  • Template loop detected: Template:Tlx has a named parameter |subst=. Setting this parameter to any non-blank value will place the string "subst:" before the template name, linked to Help:Substitution. This is useful to indicate when a template should be substituted. For example Template loop detected: Template:Tlx will display Template loop detected: Template:Tlx. This is similar to the action of the Template loop detected: Template:Tlx template: Template loop detected: Template:Tlx will display Template:Tlxs.

  • Specifics: Up to 10 pass parameters (numbered or nowiki-keywords) for the specified template are displayed as 'placeholders', and over 10 parameters can be displayed using a coded vertical-bar (as in "&#124;..."). A keyword parameter can be used with equals code &#61; or {{=}} or in nowiki-text: "Template:Tag" or all parameters as a string in "Template:Tag" tags; see Examples at bottom. For more details, see this talk page.
  • Exceptions: If the intended template lists numerous parameters, then perhaps this template should really not be used, and just hardcode the usage with Template:TagTemplate:Tag, for example: Template:Tag. If a vertical display, with parameters on their own lines, is desired, this can also be laid out manually in this manner, or more rapidly done with Template:Tag.

Parameters

  • If given no additional parameters except  'template name' ({{{1}}}),  it presents the same as the similar {{Tl}} macro template -- a blue link nested in curly-braces-- the same as a user would apply the template without parameters, but with a noticeably clearer font and spacing on most modern browsers.
  • Comparatively, Template loop detected: Template:Tlx will not take or display additional parameters, and for minor technical reasons, may be preferred for mere listing and referencing in long pages involving a lot of template expansions.
  • Template loop detected: Template:Tlx has a named parameter |subst=. Setting this parameter to any non-blank value will place the string "subst:" before the template name, linked to Help:Substitution. This is useful to indicate when a template should be substituted. For example Template loop detected: Template:Tlx will display Template loop detected: Template:Tlx. This is similar to the action of the Template loop detected: Template:Tlx template: Template loop detected: Template:Tlx will display Template:Tlxs.
  • Additionally, Tlx will take a named parameter |SISTER= to link interwiki to other sister projects such as one of these examples: |SISTER=M: (Meta), |SISTER=Q: (WikiQuote), |SISTER=S: (WikiSource), etc. allowing documentation or discourse about a template across interwiki boundaries.
  • Tlx will also take a named parameter |LANG= to link to other language Wikipedias, such as one of these examples: |LANG=de: (German), |LANG=sv: (Swedish), etc. allowing documentation or discourse about a template across language boundaries.

Documentation

{{Lorem}} is a generalization of {{Tl}}, {{Tlp}}, et cetera with arguably better readable output. This depends on the browser, but too narrow uses of "{", "|", "}" in conjunction with links can be hard to read.

Usage

{{Lorem|template name}}
{{Lorem|template name|param}}
{{Lorem|template name|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10}}
{{Lorem|template name|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10&#124;more}}
{{Lorem|template name|param&#61;value}}

Up to 10 placeholders for parameters of the specified template

Examples

Note
On the source sister projects, en.wikipedia and Meta, X0, X1, X2,..., X9 are sandbox templates for experimentation on involved templates that need be in template space. An auto-cleansing software facility exists that might be used to duplicate the facility on other Sister projects.

  • Template:Tlxb – same as {{Tlx}}, but gives the template name in boldface type (this can be useful when stressing the difference between two similarly named templates). Template:Tlb is the same, except it uses regular text instead of a monospaced non-proportional font.
  • Template:Temt, – same as {{Tlx}}, but handles template names with the Template: prefix and templates not in the Template: namespace {{ns:10}}.
  • Template:Para – for giving examples of template parameters and values only, instead of entire templates with parameters.

Template:Tl templatesTemplate:Template shortcut This template outputs lorem ipsum filler text. It takes four parameters: the number of paragraphs to generate, paragraph prefix, paragraph suffix, and an option to link lorem ipsum. There are 10 distinct paragraphs, but it can produce up to 20.

Usage

{{Lorem ipsum|2|* "|"}} generates: Template:Lorem ipsum


Note that whitespace is important in the second and third parameters, as {{Lorem ipsum|1| * " | " }} results in: Template:Lorem ipsum

All sections of text can run together by entering a space into the third parameter. <blockquote style="background: white">{{Lorem ipsum|2|| }}</blockquote> will produce:

Template:Lorem ipsum

To link lorem ipsum, either enter link=yes, or yes into the fourth parameter. {{Lorem ipsum|2=#|link=yes}} or {{Lorem ipsum|1|#||yes}} will generate: Template:Lorem ipsum

If fewer than 446 characters are desired, then Template:Str left can be used. {{Str left|{{Lorem ipsum}}|123}}. will result in:

Template:Str left.
