Usage

Notes

  • All parameters are optional.
    • No caption will be shown if there is no image.
    • The default image size is 288 px
  • Unit conversions can either be entered directly or done automatically.
    • See below for details on automatic conversion parameters.
    • {{Convert}} can be used for directly entered conversions.
    • Where imperial/US customary are auto-converted, these units will be displayed first.
    • Please refer to WP:UNITS to decide which units should be put first.
  • There are two different types of parameter.
    • Auto-conversion parameters require a numerical input (without commas).
    • Other parameters will accept any normal wikitext including links.
    • Details are noted in the pale green Details boxes below.
  • Geographical coordinates (of both origin and mouth) can be entered in several different ways:
    • decimal degrees (lat_d, long_d, plus lat_NS, long_EW)
    • degrees and minutes (as above, plus lat_m, long_m)
    • degrees, minute, and seconds (as above, plus lat_s, long_s)
    • signed decimal degrees (lat_d, long_d only)
    • explicit coordinates (origin_coordinates, mouth_coordinates only). In this case the mouth coordinates should include display=inline,title.
  • Copy the appropriate syntax block if you prefer to cut and paste into an empty template.
  • Include the HTML comments before and following the template; they help inexperienced editors.
  • Please spend some time at the Rivers WikiProject article and its talk page for standards on presenting names and other data.
  • The progression parameter (not needed on the Volga examples below) can be seen in use on River Penk, and is to describe the path (in that case: SowTrentHumberNorth Sea) taken by the waters of a river which is a tributary of one or more other rivers, and does not empty directly into a sea or lake.
