Module:Check for clobbered parameters

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This module may be appended to a template to check for uses of tuples of conflicting parameters.

Usage[change source]

Basic usage[change source]

{{#invoke:Check for clobbered parameters|check
|nested=1
|template=Some template name
|cat={{main other|Category:Some tracking category}}
|arg1a; arg1b|arg2a; arg2b; arg2c|...|argNa; argNb}}

Here, (arg1a, arg1b), (arg2a, arg2b, arg2c), are tuples of the conflicting parameters.

By default, the module ignores blank parameters which is useful for {{if empty}} chains of parameters. For nested chains of parameters, use |nested=1 to consider blank parameters as well.

By default, the delimiter for the tuples is ; but this can be changed with |delimiter=.

The value of |template= is used to for the text of the preview warning message. When omitted, the module will use a generic message.

Example 1[change source]

{{Infobox
| above = {{{name|}}}

| label1 = Founder{{#if:{{{founders|}}}|s}}
| data1 = {{if empty| {{{founders|}}} | {{{founder|}}} }}

| label2 = Headquarters
| data2 = {{if empty| {{{headquarters|}}} | {{{hq|}}} | {{{location|}}} }}

}}<!-- 
  end infobox, start tracking
-->{{#invoke:Check for clobbered parameters|check
| template = Infobox example
| cat = {{main other|Category:Pages using infobox example with conflicting parameters}}
| founders; founder
| headquarters; hq; location
}}

Example 2[change source]

{{Infobox
| above = {{{name|}}}

| label1 = Founder(s)
| data1 = {{{founders|{{{founder|}}}}}}

| label2 = Headquarters
| data2 = {{{headquarters|{{{hq|{{{location|}}}}}}}}}

}}<!-- 
  end infobox, start tracking
-->{{#invoke:Check for clobbered parameters|chec
| nested = 1
| template = Infobox example
| cat = {{main other|Category:Pages using infobox example with conflicting parameters}}
| founders; founder
| headquarters; hq; location
}}
