Usage[edit]

When you create or find a new page within the scope of WikiProject Commonwealth please add any of the following to the top of its talk page:
{{WikiProject Commonwealth}}
{{WikiProject Commonwealth |small= |listas= }}
{{WikiProject Commonwealth
|small  = 
|listas = 
}}
Unused parameters may be omitted. This template automatically adds articles to Category:Commonwealth of Nations articles

Optional parameters[edit]

  • listas – This parameter, which is the equivalent of the DEFAULTSORT sortkey that should be placed on all biographical articles, is a sortkey for the article talk page (e.g. for Winston Churchill, use |listas=Churchill, Winston so that the talk page will show up in the C's and not the W's of the various assessment and administrative categories). This is important because it is one source used by those who set DEFAULTSORT on the article; consider also setting the DEFAULTSORT for the article when setting this parameter. For more information about this, please see Wikipedia:Categorization of people#Ordering names in a category.
    It is not required if another WikiProject template on the same page has its own |listas= set, since it not only affects categories used by the banner in which it is set, but it also affects the sortkey of all other banners and templates.
  • small – set |small=yes to display a small version of the template aligned along the right side of the page (as opposed to at the top). This parameter does not work as expected if the banner template is enclosed in {{WikiProject banner shell}} or any of its redirects.
  • category – set |category=no if, and only if, a banner is being used for demonstration or testing purposes, to prevent unnecessary or undesirable categorization. Otherwise, omit this parameter.
