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


The {{WikiProject Iran}} project banner template should be added (not subst:ed) to the talk page of every article within the scope of the project. While the template does not require any additional parameters, it has a number of optional ones that add various extra features to the banner. The full syntax is as follows:

{{WikiProject Iran
|class           = 
|importance      =
|attention       =
|mapneeded       =
 |mapdetails     =
|imageneeded     =
 |imagedetails   =
|needs-infobox   =
|portal1-name    =
 |portal1-link   =
|small           =
|unref           =
|Zoroastrianism  =
|Persian literature =

To avoid needlessly cluttering up talk pages, it is usually appropriate to remove any unused parameters from the template.

A portal may be specified, via the parameter portal1-name.

  • portal1-name – if the article has been selected for use on a portal, the name of that portal. The name should be given without any formatting or namespace prefixes.
  • portal1-link – the portal subpage location where the article may be found on the corresponding portal. This should be given as a pure unlinked subpage name.
  • For example, Abbas Kiarostami was featured on the Iran portal during March 2007. Therefore, the parameters would be "|portal1-name=Iran|portal1-link=Selected article/2007/March ".
