Latest versions in separate templates[edit]

Infobox retrieves the software product's latest release version, latest release date, latest preview version and latest preview date from outside the article. Users visiting the article may click the numbers directly in the infobox to edit that external source. This mode is very useful for articles about software products whose vendors keep releasing updates or newer versions. With this mode is enabled, users can quickly and effectively edit the release data without editing the article proper (and cluttering its edit history with inconsequential edits).

To make the infobox retrieve release data from outside the article:

  1. Create an external source that supplies data for latest stable release. To do so:
    1. Copy and paste the following URL into your browser's address bar, replacing INFOBOX_NAME with the value supplied in name parameter of the infobox:
      //en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Latest_stable_software_release/INFOBOX_NAME&action=edit&preload=Template:LSR/syntax
    2. In the page that opens, fill in the required information.
    3. Save the page.
  2. Create an external source that supplies data for latest preview release. To do so:
    1. Copy and paste the following URL into your browser's address bar, replacing INFOBOX_NAME with the value suppplied in name parameter of the infobox:
      //en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Latest_preview_software_release/INFOBOX_NAME&action=edit&preload=Template:LPR/syntax
    2. In the page that opens, fill in the required information.
    3. Save the page.
  3. In the main article delete any latest release version, latest release date, latest preview version or latest preview date parameters (otherwise they will take precedence over templates' data).
  4. Save the article.
  5. Refresh the article.

The same templates may be shared between related articles. To do so, specify the subpage name of the templates' versions in the infobox's parameter |name= and add |title=subject of the article parameter to make the infobox display the proper name in the article.

Different latest versions[edit]

For browsers, whose versions don't match across supported platforms, another set of templates may be used:

  1. Create an external source that supplies data for latest stable release. To do so:
    1. Copy and paste the following URL into your browser's address bar, replacing INFOBOX_NAME with the value supplied in name parameter of the infobox:
      //en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Multiple_stable_software_releases/INFOBOX_NAME&action=edit&preload=Template:Multiple_stable_software_releases/syntax
    2. In the page that opens, fill in the required information.
    3. Save the page.
  2. Create an external source that supplies data for latest preview release. To do so:
    1. Copy and paste the following URL into your browser's address bar, replacing INFOBOX_NAME with the value suppplied in name parameter of the infobox:
      //en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Multiple_preview_software_releases/INFOBOX_NAME&action=edit&preload=Template:Multiple_preview_software_releases/syntax
    2. In the page that opens, fill in the required information.
    3. Save the page.
  3. Save the article.
  4. Refresh the article.

Microformat[edit]

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCalendar microformat, which makes the event details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to a calendar or diary application. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates[edit]

Dates will only be included if you use {{start date}} or {{end date}} (use the former for single dates; but do not use any of these if the date is before 1583 CE).

URLs will only be included if you use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes[edit]

hCalendar uses HTML classes including:

  • attendee
  • contact
  • description
  • dtend
  • dtstart
  • location
  • organiser
  • summary
  • url
  • vevent

Please do not rename or remove these classes, nor collapse nested elements which use them.
