Usage[edit]

The {{WikiProject Wikipedia}} 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. This template automatically adds articles to Category:WikiProject Wikipedia articles. The full syntax as it follows:

{{WikiProject Wikipedia
 |class=
 |importance=
 |small=
 |listas=
 |category=
}}

Parameters[edit]

  • class – see the project's quality scale for details.
  • importance – see the project's importance scale for details.
  • 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 Jimmy Wales, use |listas=Wales, Jimmy so that the talk page will show up in the W's and not the J's of the various assessment and administrative categories; similarly, for topics with titles beginning with an article such as "the" or "a" - e.g. for The Innovators: How a Group of Inventors, Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution, use |listas=Innovators: How a Group of Inventors, Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution, The so that the talk page will show up in the I's). 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.
