Usage

This template {{WikiProject California}} adds articles to one or more subcategories of Category:WikiProject California and is a self-reference. Please add it to talk pages of relevant articles and non-article pages.

This template should be transcluded as {{WikiProject California}} and not substituted {{subst:}} because it employs conditional code. Transclusion also allows easy updating of all the WikiProject's talk pages without having to edit thousands of pages individually. For examples of how the template will appear under various parameter scenarios, please see Template:WikiProject California/Example.

The template also employs several optional data field parameters as described below. The full syntax is as follows:

{{WikiProject California
|class =
|importance =
|auto =
|imageneeded =
|in =
|in2 =
|in3 =
|imagedetails =
|mapneeded =
|mapin =
|mapin2 =
|mapin3 =
|mapdetails =
|unref =
|attention =
|needs-infobox =
|past-collaboration =
|selected-article =
|selected-picture =
|selected-biography =
|selected-panorama =
|listas =
|category =
|small =
}}

Parameters legend

  • class – see the project's quality scale for details.
  • importance – see the project's importance scale for details.
  • auto – This parameter is for the use of bots and indicates that the article has been automatically rated:
    • |auto=length – based on the length of the article
    • |auto=inherit – because one or more other projects use this class
    • |auto=yes (or |auto=stub), in conjunction with |class=stub – as Stub-Class because it uses a stub template
  • attention – set |attention=yes if the article needs immediate attention from experienced editors. Use only if another parameter does not cover the need for attention.
  • needs-infobox – set |needs-infobox=yes if the article needs an infobox.
  • unref – set |unref=yes if the page needs additional references or inline citations. Leave blank or delete if not.
  • imageneeded – set |imageneeded=yes to request that a photograph, map, drawing, diagram, equation, or other image be added to the page. Leave blank or delete if not.
  • in – Used in conjunction with the |imageneeded=yes parameter to place the image request into a specific location, such as a California county. For example, |in=Los Angeles County, California will place the article talk page into Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in Los Angeles County, California. Leave blank or delete if not.
    • Additional in2 and in3 parameters used in conjunction with the |imageneeded=yes parameter may be used to specify up to three total location categories (such as for celebrities and other people who may frequent multiple county locations).
  • imagedetails – This free-form parameter can be used in conjunction with the imageneeded parameter to add specific details about the images being requested. For example, |imagedetails=Please add a live-action shot to this sports article will add the following to the template display: "An editor suggests the following: Please add a live-action shot to this sports article."
  • mapneeded – set |mapneeded=yes to request that a map be added to the page. Leave blank or delete if not.
  • mapin – Used in conjunction with the |mapneeded=yes parameter to place the map request into a specific location, such as a California county. For example, |in=Los Angeles County, California will place the article talk page into Category:Wikipedia requested maps in Los Angeles County, California. Leave blank or delete if not.
    • Additional mapin2 and mapin3 parameters used in conjunction with the |mapneeded=yes parameter may be used to specify up to three total location categories (such as for celebrities and other people who may frequent multiple county locations).
  • mapdetails – This free-form parameter can be used in conjunction with the |mapneeded= parameter to add specific details about the images being requested. For example, |mapdetails=Please add a map to this city article will add the following to the template display: "An editor suggests the following: Please add a map to this city article."
  • past-collaboration – Enter Month Year (e.g., |past-collaboration=February 2007) if the page previously was selected as the WikiProject's collaboration of the week/month. Leave blank or delete if not.
  • selected-article – set |selected-article=yes if the article is selected on the California portal.
  • selected-picture – set |selected-picture=yes if the picture is selected on the California portal.
  • selected-biography – set |selected-biography=yes if the biography is selected on the California portal.
  • selected-panorama – set |selected-panorama=yes if the panorama is selected on the California portal.
  • autoi – set |autoi=yes if it is for the use of bots and indicates that the article has been automatically prioritized.
  • listas – This parameter, which is the equivalent of the DEFAULTSORT sortkey that should be placed on all biographical articles, is a sortkey for the article talk page (e.g. for Gray Davis, use |listas=Davis, Gray so that the talk page will show up in the D's and not the G's of the various assessment and administrative categories). This is important because it is one source used by those who set DEFAULTSORT on the article; consider also setting the DEFAULTSORT for the article when setting this parameter. For more information about this, please see Wikipedia:Categorization of people#Ordering names in a category.
    It is not required if another WikiProject template on the same page has its own |listas= set.
  • small – set |small=yes to display a small version of the template aligned along the right side of the page (as opposed to at the top). This parameter does not work as expected if the banner template is enclosed in {{WikiProjectBannerShell}} or {{WikiProjectBanners}}.
  • category – set |category=no if, and only if, a banner is being used for demonstration or testing purposes, to prevent unnecessary or undesirable categorization. Otherwise, omit this parameter.

Notes
