WikiProject Templates
WikiProject icon This template (like all templates) is within the scope of WikiProject Templates, a group dedicated to improving the maintenance of Wikipedia's templates. This particular template is especially important to the project because it is used in the maintenance of other templates. If you would like to participate, please visit the project page, where you can join the discussion and see a list of open tasks.

Place this on the talk page of relevant Wikipedia, Help or Category pages, but generally not on the talk pages of templates:

{{WikiProject Templates}}

Optional parameters[edit]

  • 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 John Doe, use |listas=Doe, John so that the talk page will show up in the D's and not the J'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}}.
  • template_for_template_maintenance – set |template_for_template_maintenance=yes if the banner is being used on the talk page of one of the templates used for template maintenance, such as Template talk:Tfm. If the banner is used in Template talk: space without this parameter, the page will be placed in Category:Pages with templates in the wrong namespace.
  • 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.
This is the TemplateData documentation for this template used by VisualEditor and other tools.
