Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This is a boilerplate template used to create documentation pages for the speedy deletion notification templates.

Usage[edit]

This template should be substituted on to the documentation subpage of the speedy deletion notification template. Basic usage is as follows:

{{subst: db notice doc
|criterion       = <!-- G1, G3, A7, etc. -->
|criterion-desc  = <!-- patent nonsense, vandalism, etc. -->
|speedy-template = <!-- db-nonsense, db-vandalism, etc. -->
|twinkle         = yes
|namespace       = yes 
|nowelcome       = yes
|header          = yes
|header-text     = yes
|demo            = yes
|cat-name        = <!-- nonsense-notice, vandalism-notice, etc. -->
}}

This template uses subpages to make the speedy deletion notice documentation pages both flexible and easy to maintain. These subpages are usually transcluded on the documentation subpage, but they can also be substituted if desired - see the individual subpages for instructions on how to do this.
