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


Please note: This template should be transcluded ({{WikiProject United Kingdom}}) and not substituted (subst.), because it employs conditional code. Transclusion also allows easy updating of all the Project's talk pages without having to edit thousands of pages. {{WPUK}} and {{WikiProject UK}} both redirect to the main template.

When you create or find a new page within the scope of WikiProject United Kingdom please add any of the following to the top of its talk page:
{{WikiProject United Kingdom |class= |importance= }}
{{WikiProject United Kingdom |class= |importance= |needs-infobox= |needs-photo= |politics= |Politics of the United Kingdom-importance= |attention= |small= |listas= }}
{{WikiProject United Kingdom
 |class         = 
 |importance    = 
 |needs-infobox = 
 |needs-photo   = 
 |politics      = 
  |Politics of the United Kingdom-importance = 
 |attention     = 
 |small         = 
 |listas        = 
Unused parameters may be omitted. This template automatically adds articles to Category:WikiProject United Kingdom articles.

Optional parameters

  • attention – set |attention=yes if the article needs immediate attention from experienced editors. Use only if another parameter does not cover the need for attention; this should be used sparingly.
  • class – valid values are listed in the custom class mask. See the project's quality scale for details.
  • 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 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.
  • needs-infobox – set |needs-infobox=yes if the article needs an infobox. Remember that infoboxes are not suitable for all articles, and can overwhelm short articles.
  • needs-photo – set |needs-photo=yes to request that a picture or pictures be included in this article to improve its quality.
  • politics – set |politics=yes if the page is under the stewardship of WikiProject Politics of the United Kingdom.
  • 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.
  • auto – This parameter is for the use of bots and indicates that the article has been automatically rated:
    • |auto=length – based on the length of the article
    • |auto=inherit – because one or more other projects use this class
    • |auto=yes (or |auto=stub), in conjunction with |class=stub – as Stub-Class because it uses a stub template
  • 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.
