Usage

To add an article to the list, place {{WikiProject Illinois |class= |importance= }} at the top of the article's talk page, adding it to Category:WikiProject Illinois articles. This template should be transcluded as {{WikiProject Illinois}} and not substituted {{subst:}} because it employs conditional code. Transclusion also allows easy updating of all the Project's talk pages without having to edit thousands of pages. The template also employs several optional data field parameters as described below. For an example of how the template will appear if all parameters are active, please see: Template:WikiProject Illinois/testcases.

{{WikiProject Illinois
 |class =
 |importance =
 |attention =
 |imageneeded =
 |in =
 |imagedetails =
 |needs-infobox =
 |small =
 |unref =
}}
