When you create or find a new page within the scope of WikiProject London please add any of the following to the top of its talk page:
{{WikiProject London |class= |importance= }}
{{WikiProject London |class= |importance= |clean-up= |london-districts-task-force= |needs-photo= |small= |listas= }}
{{WikiProject London
|class                       = 
|importance                  = 
|clean-up                    = 
|london-districts-task-force = 
|needs-photo                 = 
|small                       = 
|listas                      = 
Unused parameters may be omitted.

Optional parameters

  • class – valid values are listed in the custom class mask. See the project's quality scale for details.
  • clean-up – set |clean-up=yes if the article requires clean-up to conform to the Manual of Style and other guidelines
  • importance – valid values are: top, high, mid, low, na (case-insensitive). See the project's importance scale for details.
  • 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 Richard Whittington, use |listas=Whittington, Richard so that the talk page will show up in the W's and not the R'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.
  • london-districts-task-force – set |london-districts-task-force=yes if the article is supported by the London districts task force.
  • needs-photo – set |needs-photo=yes to mark the page as needing a photograph
  • 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.

Basic examples

  • Text article: {{WikiProject London |class= |importance= }}
  • List article: {{WikiProject London |class=list |importance=mid }}
