Usage[edit]

The {{WikiProject Novels}} project banner template should be added (not subst:ed) to the talk page of every article within the scope of the project. While the template does not require any additional parameters, it has a number of optional ones that add various extra features to the banner. Transclusion also allows easy updating of all the Project's talk pages without having to edit hundreds of pages. The full syntax is as follows:

{{WikiProject Novels|class=

General parameters[edit]

  • class – a rating of the article's quality; see the assessment department for more details.
  • importance – a rating of the article's importance; see the assessment department for more details.
  • listas – the equivalent of DEFAULTSORT, it is a sortkey for the article talk page (e.g. for The Shining, use |listas=Shining, The, so that the talk page will show up in the S's and not the T's of the various assessment and administrative categories). Consider also setting the DEFAULTSORT for the article when setting this parameter.
  • auto - "yes" if the article has been automatically assessed as stub-class from the presence of stub templates in the end of the article.
  • attention – "yes" if the article requires immediate attention; this should be used sparingly.
  • needs-infobox – "yes" if the article requires a suitable "Infobox" (e.g. "Infobox Book" or "Infobox short story") adding
  • incomp-infobox – "yes" if the article requires a suitable "Infobox" completing
  • needs-infobox-cover – "yes" if the article "Infobox" requires a suitable Cover image
– or "1st" if the article "Infobox" could benefit from a suitable 1st Edition Cover image
  • collaboration-candidate – "yes" if the article is currently a candidate for the project's Collaboration of the Month.
  • past-collaboration – if the article was previously a Collaboration of the Month, the dash-separated dates of the collaboration period; must be left blank otherwise.
  • peer-review – "yes" if the article is currently listed on the project's peer review department.
  • old-peer-review – "yes" if the article was previously listed on the project's peer review department.

Task force parameters[edit]

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