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

This template links to an unslashed prefix: "MS": MS Antenor (1957)

Usage

This is a typing short cut for linking to steamship articles named in the format "MS Shipname (Year)". Since ship names are italicized in article text, linking to them in the usual manner means typing everything twice, such as [[MS Shipname (ID)|MS ''Shipname'' (ID)]]. This template halves that to {{MS|Shipname|ID}}.

Formal Usage

  • {{MS|Ship Name}}
  • {{MS|Ship Name|ID}}, where ID can be the hull number, launch year, or pennant number, as specified in the article title.

Examples

Template usage Equivalent wikicode Final result
{{MS|Antenor|1957}} [[MS Antenor (1957)|MS ''Antenor'' (1957)]] MS Antenor (1957)
{{MS|Queen Victoria|ship}} [[MS Queen Victoria (ship)|MS ''Queen Victoria'' (ship)]] MS Queen Victoria (ship)
{{MS|Princess of Norway}} [[MS Princess of Norway|MS ''Princess of Norway'']] MS Princess of Norway

Label format options

By default, the wikilink is build like this:

  • {{MS|Antenor|1957}}, the targetpage is
[[MS Antenor (1957)]].
Then the template by default adds the formatted label:
[[targetpage|label]]
[[MS Antenor (1957)|MS ''Antenor'' (1957)]], showing as:
MS Antenor (1957).

The default label can be changed with a simple parameter. The extra third position, unnamed parameter allows setting which elements of the ship's full name are shown in the wikilink. It sets the label in the link: For example, in your article, the hull number (disambiguator) may not be needed to show. In that case, add option |2, and the result is:

  • {{MS|Antenor|1957|2}}
[[MS Antenor (1957)|''Antenor'']]
Antenor

The options are:
