Template:Languages

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

UsageEdit

GeneralEdit

This template is to be placed on template site of user languages. It is written as (example for English):

{{languages|English|en}}

You write only English (not language: the template writes that by itself).

Language voidEdit

For most languages, saying "language" after it is necessary to direct it straight to the language's mainspace page, but sometimes saying "language" directs it to a red link. To stop this problem put:

{{languages|English|en|langvoid=}}

Different categoryEdit

This template automatically puts the template in its User template category, to redirect to a different User templates category do this, using the Scottish language as an example:

{{languages|Scottish English|en-sco|catalt=en}}

Category sectionsEdit

By default the template categories templates like:

1
Template:User en-1

2
Template:User en-2

And so on, but if you wanted to replace these with different abbreviations such as:

c
Template:User en-ca-1
Template:User en-ca-2

e
Template:User en-1
Template:User en-2

Add |sections= with the abbreviated code, such as "ca" or "en", etc. Do not place the "-", at the end of "sections" as was done previously, this will screw up the chronological order.

Category voidEdit

Some templates such as the blank series and other fictional languages do not deserve to have their own category, to void the category all together do this:

{{languages|Spoken|blank|catvoid=}}

FormatEdit

If all of these functions were used on one template they would look like this:

{{languages|English|en|langvoid=|catvoid=|catalt=en|sections=us|#=N}}

Please note catalt, sections and # cannot exist if catvoid exists.
