Template:WikiProject Insects/doc

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This template adds article talk pages, category talk pages, template talk pages, etc (whatever it is placed on) to Category:WikiProject Insects articles. It is also used to track article classifications and presents readers with a current "to do" list.

Please be very careful when editing this template if you don't understand MediaWiki Parser Functions. This template is now rather complicated and could easily be broken. (Note that you may find m:Magic words and m:ParserFunctions very helpful in understanding what this does... consider consulting with User:Sarefo before making any changes, please)

Usage[edit]

The template always goes onto Talk pages, not article pages. The template must be transcluded and not substituted (using subst).

{{WikiProject Insects
|small = 
|listas = 
|class = 
|importance = 
|needs-audio = 
|needs-photo = 
}}

For articles which have not yet been assessed, simply use {{WikiProject Insects}}. This default places the article in Category:Unassessed Insects articles and Category:Unassessed-importance Insects articles, and doesn't change the wording of the template in any way.

Optional parameters[edit]

Aliases[edit]

  • The first positional parameter is recognised as an alias for |class=. If both |class= and the positional parameter are present, the positional parameter is ignored.
  • The second positional parameter is recognised as an alias for |importance=. If both |importance= and the positional parameter are present, the positional parameter is ignored.
    • Note: this use of positional parameters is non-standard and may confuse some bots and scripts.
