  • startyear – first year that has an archive. Should always be specified as it cuts down the number of expensive parser functions (too many of these will break the display of the page)
  • monthformat – format used for months in the naming scheme. Should almost always be specified with one of the following values: (it also cuts down the number of expensive parser functions)
    • m – numerical, single digits for 1 to 9
    • mm – numerical, double digits for 01 to 09
    • mmm or shortname – short names (Jan, Feb, etc)
    • mmmm or longname or name – long names (January, February, etc)
    • If ommitted or set to anything else, the default is to check for numerical (either single or double digits) and long names. This involves around three times as many expensive parser functions, and should be avoided if possible
  • root - should be used to specify the root of the archive structure (./Archives for example). Defaults to current page
  • Also allows through most of the other parameters of {{Archives}} (note that, for this template, the default for title is Archives)
