Usage[change | change source]

  • Attention: Please do not subst this template.

Simply add the tag {{lowercase title}} at the top of a page (and optionally, at the top of its talk page). There are no parameters. The tag will only decapitalize the first letter of the page's name in the title at the top of the page. Examples:

Page name Will display
EBay, IPod, etc. eBay, iPod, etc.
Talk:EBay Talk:eBay

Technical[change | change source]

This template wraps the magic word DISPLAYTITLE so that it works automatically in any namespace (main, talk, template, etc.) to decapitalise the first letter of the name of a page it is transcluded on. (Previously, this template achieved this using JavaScript, but the DISPLAYTITLE method makes the change for all users, even those with JavaScript disabled in their browser).
