Usage

The {{WikiProject Malaysia}} project banner template should be added (not subst:ed) to the talk page of every article within the scope of WikiProject Malaysia. Usage of the template does not require any additional parameters; however, it has a number of optional ones that add some extra features to the banner.

Example usage with basic parameters:

{{WikiProject Malaysia|class=|importance=}}

The full syntax is as follows:

{{WikiProject Malaysia
|class = 
|importance = 
|attention = 
|small = 
|listas = 
|category = 
}}

General parameters:

  • class – see the project's quality scale for details.
  • importance – see the project's importance scale for details.
  • 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.
  • 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 Najib Tun Razak, use |listas=Tun Razak, Najib so that the talk page will show up in the T's and not the N'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.

To avoid needlessly cluttering up talk pages, it is usually appropriate to remove any unused parameters from the template.
