Usage[edit]

The {{WikiProject Orissa}} 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:

Template display formatting parameters:

  • small - show the normal or reduced size template; shows the reduced size template if small=yes.
  • pre - for pre-independence articles; changes flag image to a map of sub-continent if pre=yes.

General parameters:

  • class – a rating of the article's quality; see the assessment department for more details.
    • FA - The article has reached Featured article status.
    • A - Could be submitted as a Featured article candidate; probably could use some small updates to make it Featured quality.
    • GA - The article has reached Good article status.
    • B - Satisfies all C-class criteria, but also has a majority of the material needed for a comprehensive article. At minimum, it should also have some references to reliable sources. Nonetheless, it has some gaps or missing elements or references, needs editing for language usage or clarity, balance of content, or contains other policy problems such as copyright, Neutral Point Of View (NPOV) or No Original Research (NOR).
    • C - The article is substantial, but is still missing important content or contains a lot of irrelevant material. The article must have a defined structure (a lead section, one or more sections of content, and a section dedicated to providing references). The article should be free from major grammatical errors, and should also contain supporting materials such as an infobox, images, or diagrams.
    • Start - The article is more than a stub, but may lack some important aspects of the topic's discussion.
    • Stub - The article is a stub; it likely contains one of the Odisha stub templates.
    • Needed - The article does not yet exist but has been identified as a subject that should be covered.
    • Disambig or Dab - The article is a disambiguation page.
    • Redirect or Redir - The article is a redirect page.
    • Template - The page is a template.
    • Category or Cat - The page is a category.
    • Image or Img - The page is an image.
    • List - The page is a list.
    • Portal - The page is a portal.
    • NA - The page is not an article and should not be rated; it could be a template, image or category, for example.
  • importance – a rating of the article's importance; see the assessment department for more details.
    • Top
    • High
    • Mid
    • Low
  • portal – if the article is used in the selected article queue of the Orissa Portal, the subpage number of its entry.
  • portal-picture – if the image is used in the selected picture queue of the Orissa Portal, the subpage number of its entry.
  • attention – "yes" if the article requires immediate attention; this should be used sparingly.
  • collaboration-candidate – "yes" if the article is currently a candidate for the project's Collaboration of the month.
  • past-collaboration – week of <date> the article was previously a Collaboration of the week, the dash-separated dates of the collaboration period; must be left blank otherwise.
  • failed-collaboration – <date> the article was nominated for the Collaboration of the week, but failed to quality; must be left blank otherwise.
  • peer-review – "yes" if the article is currently listed on the project's peer review department.
  • old-peer-review – "yes" if the article was previously listed on the project's peer review department.
  • orphan – "yes" if the article is not currently supported by an Orissan WikiProject.
  • needs-infobox – "yes" if the article lacks an infobox, otherwise remove this line.
  • auto – "yes" This parameter is for bot-use.
  • map-needed – "yes" if the article needs a map, otherwise remove this line. It adds articles to Category:Wikipedia requested maps in Orissa.
  • image-needed – "yes" if the article needs pictures, otherwise remove this line. It adds articles to Category:Orissa articles needing images. The template automatically categorizes the articles into "Wikipedia requested photographs in" location categories based on taskforce parameters. For example, if chennai=yes and image-needed=yes, will place the article talk page into Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in Chennai. The feature can be disabled with a parameter, photocat=no
    • photocat – "no" This parameter is used to disable automatic categorization when image-needed is "yes".
    • in – Used in conjunction with the image-needed parameter to place the image request into a specific Orissan location. Leave blank or delete if not. For example, "in=Tamil Nadu" will place the article talk page into Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in Tamil Nadu.
    • Additional in2 and in3 – parameters used in conjunction with the image-needed parameter may be used to specify up to three total location categories.
  • portaldykdate – Date on which the article was displayed on the DYK section of the Orissa portal. Format: [[Month]] [[day]], [[Year]].
  • assess-date - Date last assessed. Example: assess-date={{subst:CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{subst:CURRENTYEAR}}

Portal specific parameters

  • group-portal(1-5): Can list selected articles of up to 5 portals
  • group-portal-list(1-5): Can list selected lists of up to 5 portals
  • group-portal-picture(1-5): Can list selected pictures of up to 5 portals

Field parameter

  • field(...field1, field2, field3) - allows for setting up statistics for subject areas even if a taskforce for the subject does not exist. The articles can be moved to the taskforce once it has been setup. For projects using the field parameter, see Category:Orissa articles using field parameter.

Wikiproject specific parameters

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