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

Episode list creates a table row, for use in a list of episodes tables, primarily for television. This template can be used in conjunction with {{Episode table}} which creates a consistent and Manual of Style ready table, or with a manually created table. See walk-through for further explanation.

Usage

{{Episode list}} may be added by pasting it as shown below into an article, either inside an {{Episode table}} template, or be placed inside a manually created table. The number and the type of columns a table has, is defined by the table header, and is not defined by this template. In order for this template to provide a table column for a given episode, parameters must either be included or excluded. An included parameter, although empty, will provide a cell for that field (and thus a column), while excluding a parameter will not provide a cell for that field. Empty cells will be automatically filled with "TBA" or "N/A".

Parameters

Episode list parameters and basic guidelines
Parameter Explanation
1 The title of the article the table is located in.
NumParts The number of titles an episode has or the number of serials a story has. See examples section for usage.
EpisodeNumber A number representing the episode's order in the series. For example, the first episode would be 1 or 01, and so on. When defined, the specified number also generates a link anchor, prefixed by "ep"; for example, "[[List of episodes#ep1]]" or "[[List of episodes#ep01]]". In creating the anchor, the text specified for the number is treated literally: to generate the most straightforward versions of anchors as previously exemplified, specify only a number, omitting any use of formatting, including bold. For double-episodes where two numbers are listed and are separated by "----", "<hr />", or "<br />", the link anchor will be only the first number; that is, if the double episode spans episode numbers 87 and 88, then [[List of episodes#ep87]] will link directly to the episode.
EpisodeNumber2 A second episode number column. Typically used to indicate the episode's order in the season. This parameter can also be useful for when a series aired in a different order.
Title The title of the episode. The title will appear in "quotes" when rendered, so it is not necessary to place them in quotes beforehand. Only link to an episode article if it has already been created.
  • Title_1
  • Title_2
  • etc.
The title of the episode. Used when |NumParts= is used, as there are multiple titles for an episode, and should be used instead of |Title=. The number of titles should not exceed the number set in |NumParts=.
RTitle Unformatted parameter that can be used to add a reference after |Title=, or can be used as a "raw title" to replace |Title= completely. Future episodes should include a reference in this field to comply with Wikipedia:Verifiability.
  • RTitle_1
  • RTitle_2
  • etc.
Unformatted parameter that can be used to add a reference after |Title=, or can be used as a "raw title" to replace |Title= completely. Used when |NumParts= is used, as there are multiple titles for an episode, and should be used instead of |RTitle=. The number of titles should not exceed the number set in |NumParts=.
AltTitle An alternative title, such as a title that was originally changed. The title will appear in "quotes" when rendered. If |Title= is also present, it will be listed below.
  • AltTitle_1
  • AltTitle_2
  • etc.
An alternative title, such as a title that was originally changed. Used when |NumParts= is used, as there are multiple titles for an episode, and should be used instead of |AltTitle=. The number of titles should not exceed the number set in |NumParts=.
RAltTitle Unformatted parameter that can be used to add a reference after |AltTitle=, or can be used as a "raw title" to replace |AltTitle= completely.
  • RAltTitle_1
  • RAltTitle_2
  • etc.
Unformatted parameter that can be used to add a reference after |AltTitle=, or can be used as a "raw title" to replace |AltTitle= completely. Used when |NumParts= is used, as there are multiple titles for an episode, and should be used instead of |RAltTitle=. The number of titles should not exceed the number set in |NumParts=.
TranslitTitle The title of the episode transliteration (Romanization) to Latin characters.
  • TranslitTitle_1
  • TranslitTitle_2
  • etc.
The title of the episode transliteration (Romanization) to Latin characters. Used when |NumParts= is used, as there are multiple titles for an episode, and should be used instead of |TranslitTitle=. The number of titles should not exceed the number set in |NumParts=.
NativeTitle The title of the episode in the native language.
  • NativeTitle_1
  • NativeTitle_2
  • etc.
The title of the episode in the native language. Used when |NumParts= is used, as there are multiple titles for an episode, and should be used instead of |NativeTitle=. The number of titles should not exceed the number set in |NumParts=.
NativeTitleLangCode The language code of the native title language.
Aux1 General purpose parameter. The meaning is specified by the column header.
  • Aux1_1
  • Aux1_2
  • etc.
The title of the serial. Used when |NumParts= is used, as there are multiple serials in a story, and should be used instead of |Aux1=. The number of titles should not exceed the number set in |NumParts=.
DirectedBy Name of the episode's director.
WrittenBy Name of the credited episode's writer(s).
Aux2 General purpose parameter. The meaning is specified by the column header.
Aux3 General purpose parameter. The meaning is specified by the column header.
OriginalAirDate The date the episode first aired, or is scheduled to air. Format date using {{Start date}}; use |df=y for day-first format; omit for month-first.
  • OriginalAirDate_1
  • OriginalAirDate_2
  • etc.
The date the episode first aired, or is scheduled to air. Used when |NumParts= is used, as there are multiple serials in a story, and should be used instead of |OriginalAirDate=. The number of dates should not exceed the number set in |NumParts=.
AltDate The next notable air date, such as the first air date of an anime in English. Format date per MOS:DATE. Do not use {{Start date}} if |OriginalAirDate= is present.[N 1]
ProdCode The production code in the series. When defined, this parameter also creates a link anchor, prefixed by "pc"; for example, "[[List of episodes#pc01]]".
Viewers The number of viewers who watched the episode. Should include a reference. The inclusion of viewer figures is supported by MOS:TV and provides encyclopedic content beyond what might normally be found in a TV guide. It is therefore desirable to include referenced ratings information in an episode list. "Final" viewer numbers should be used.
  • Viewers_1
  • Viewers_2
  • etc.
The number of viewers who watched the episode. Used when |NumParts= is used, as there are multiple serials in a story, and should be used instead of |Viewers=. The number of parameters should not exceed the number set in |NumParts=.
Aux4 General purpose parameter. The meaning is specified by the column header.
  • Aux4_1
  • Aux4_2
  • etc.
General purpose parameter. Used when |NumParts= is, as there are multiple serials in a story, and should be used instead of |Aux4=. The number of parameters should not exceed the number set in |NumParts=.
ShortSummary A short 100–200 word plot summary of the episode. Make summaries specific to that episode (as in, a description that would normally not be confused with another episode). Episode summaries must not be copied from other sources, as this violates WP:COPYRIGHT. Further guidance on plot summaries may be found at WP:TVPLOT. Leaving this parameter empty will result in the summary row not appearing for the episode.
LineColor Colors the separator line between episode entries. If not defined the color defaults to "#CCCCFF" and the article populates Category:Episode list using the default LineColor. Use of anything but a valid hex code will result in an invalid syntax.
TopColor Colors the main row of information (that is, not the |ShortSummary= row). If not defined, it defaults to the wikitable standard background shading of "#F9F9F9", except when |ShortSummary= is used, and then it defaults to "#f2f2f2". The excessive use of the parameter is discouraged by Wikipedia's guideline on styles and markup options. Articles using this parameter are in Category:Episode lists with row deviations.
RowColor This parameter is a "switch" that must only be defined when the |EpisodeNumber= value is not a regular number (e.g. "12–13" for two episodes described in one table entry). When transcluding the table from a season article into a main episode list article, irregular |EpisodeNumber= values break up the striping effect the template introduces. If the first episode number is even, set |RowColor=on. If the first episode number is odd, set |RowColor=off. All further uses of Template:Episode list in the table must also have the |RowColor= parameters defined to alternate between off and on to avoid further breakages in the striping.

TemplateData for Episode list

This template creates a table row, for use in a list of episodes, primarily for television. The number, and use, of columns a table has, is defined by the beginning wikitext of that table (further explained below), and is not defined by this template. In order for this template to provide a table column for a given episode, parameters must either be included or excluded. An included parameter, although empty, will provide a cell for that field (and thus column), while excluding a parameter will not provide a cell for that field. Empty cells will be automatically filled with {{TableTBA}}. It is used within {{Episode table}}.

Complete usage walk-through

To create an episode list, first create the table columns with the use of {{Episode table}} as following:

{{Episode table |overall= |title= |airdate= |prodcode= |episodes=

Next, add the {{Episode list}} templates below:

{{Episode list
| EpisodeNumber       = 
| Title               = 
| OriginalAirDate     = 
| ProdCode            = 
| ShortSummary        = 
}}
{{Episode list
| EpisodeNumber       = 
| Title               = 
| OriginalAirDate     = 
| ProdCode            = 
| ShortSummary        = 
}}

Lastly, after the final episode list template, close the {{Episode table}} with:

}}

The complete code will look like this:

{{Episode table |overall= |title= |airdate= |prodcode= |episodes=
{{Episode list
| EpisodeNumber       = 
| Title               = 
| OriginalAirDate     = 
| ProdCode            = 
| ShortSummary        = 
}}
{{Episode list
| EpisodeNumber       = 
| Title               = 
| OriginalAirDate     = 
| ProdCode            = 
| ShortSummary        = 
}}
}}

Transclusion of the list on another page

When a TV series article is split into season pages, create each season's episode list on the corresponding season article. If the series also has a "List of episodes" article, do not re-create the tables in it, and instead transclude the table from the season articles to the list of episodes article.

For example, the TV series Lost has season articles for each of its seasons. An episode table is located in each of its season articles, such as Lost (season 1) and Lost (season 2). Each season is then then transcluded to List of Lost episodes.

When transcluded onto any other article, the episode summaries are removed, and the background row color alternates between light and dark gray, depending on the value of |EpisodeNumber=. Occasionally, a multi-part episode will skew the pattern between odd and even numbers, to rectify this, use the |RowColor= parameter. A |RowColor=on input will color the row dark gray, like an even number normally would, on the "List of X episodes" page, while a |RowColor=off input will color the row light gray, like an odd number normally would.

For the purpose of transclusion, each sublist must make use of <onlyinclude> tags, with the opening tag just before the WikiTable, and the closing tag at the very end of the table. This prevents the lead, external links, templates, categories, interwiki links, and all other unnecessary information from being transcluded onto the main list.

When transcluding onto the main list, you should make use of {{Main}}.

Transclusion examples

On a season article, such as Lost (season 3), the code should be as follows:

<onlyinclude>
{{Episode table |background=#2E5528 |overall= |season= |title= |director= |writer= |aux2= |aux2T=Featured<br />character(s) |airdate= |viewers= |country=U.S. |episodes=

| WrittenBy       = Elizabeth Sarnoff & Drew Goddard
| Aux2            = [[Ben Linus|Ben]]
| OriginalAirDate = {{Start date|2007|5|9}}
| Viewers         = 12.11<ref name="viewers"/>

}}
}}</onlyinclude>

And similar for the other season articles of the series, such as Lost (season 4):

<onlyinclude>

The following code should appear on List of Lost episodes:

== Season 1 ==
{{Main|Lost (season 1)}}
{{:Lost (season 1)}}
<!-- To edit the episodes in this section, you need to edit the article listed above. -->

== Season 2 ==
{{main|Lost (season 2)}}
{{:Lost (season 2)}}
<!-- To edit the episodes in this section, you need to edit the article listed above. -->

Note the colon (:) at the beginning of the transclusions; this is necessary when transcluding an article. If you tried to transclude Lost (season 1), without using the colon, you would get Template:Lost (season 1), a redlink to a nonexistent template.

The above code will appear as follows:

Tips

It may be helpful to include a hidden message that will appear when someone edits the article. Placed above the table headers and under the article section, such as:

==Episodes==
<!-- For help with this template see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Episode_list -->
<onlyinclude>
{{Episode table

This message won't be visible when normally viewing the article. A message such as this notes where one can get help for the template.

Microformat

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCalendar microformat, which makes the event details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue article across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to a calendar or diary application. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Dates will only be included if you use {{Start date}} or {{End date}} (use the former for single dates). As an alternative, you may use {{Start-date}} and {{End-date}}.

hCalendar uses HTML classes including:

  • attendee
  • contact
  • description
  • dtend
  • dtstart
  • location
  • organiser
  • summary
  • vevent

Please do not rename or remove these classes; nor collapse nested elements which use them.

Pages which use multiple instances of this template can also use {{UF-timeline}}, in their external links section, to generate a SIMILE timeline. It renders as:

For shows where each episode is from a different, single, specific place (for example, Time Team, one of the Aux fields can contain the coordinates, applied using {{coord}}.

Subpages

"Hacks" of this template, also known as "forks", are discouraged. Any discussion regarding forks should occur on this template's, not the fork's or article's, talk page.

Notes

  1. ^ {{Start date}} emits metadata as part of the parent template's hCalendar microformat. It is only needed once per episode, and may be harmful if used twice or more.
