[edit] [purge] Template-info.png Template documentation


The template link template is a simple macro template used to display a template name as a link surrounded by braces, thus showing how the template name would be used in code. Its primary use is in instruction and documentation. A short example is that the code:

{{tl|T}}
generates
{{T}}

More complex variations are described below.

{{tl2}}


differs in that it displays an arguably clearer result, and also takes the named parameters 'SISTER=xx' and 'LANG=ll', so that it may also be used to list and link to templates on other English and non-English language sister projects.

Usage

 {{Tl|template name to display}}
and
 {{Tl2|template name to display}} -- local link, just like Tl.
 or
 {{Tl2|SISTER=V:|template name to display}} -- displays a template on Wikiversity
 or
 {{Tl2|LANG=fr.|SISTER=wikisource|template name to display}} -- displays a template 
                       on the French Wikisource sister project.

Example

Code Result
{{Tl|T}} {{T}}
{{Tl2|T}} {{T}}
{{Tl2|SISTER=M:|3x}} {{3x}}
{{Tl2|SISTER=wikibooks|LANG=de:|WP}} {{WP}}
