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

The templates in this series are made to be used in a table to make a cell with text in that cell, with a colored background. They are sometimes used in comparison tables.

For example, {{yes}} makes a cell with a green background. The text in the cell is taken from the first parameter; {{yes|Sure}} would output "Sure" otherwise it defaults to "Yes". Most templates allow authors to override the default text in this way, some require text put after the template call and some also need a vertical bar in between: {{table cell template}} text or {{table cell template}} | text. This information, the colors and default texts are found in the table below.

Other table attributes, such as colspan or rowspan, need a special format. For example, to add colspan or rowspan to table cells, use the format below. The table attribute must be entered before the template call. There must not be a vertical bar | between the attribute and the template.

Yes No N/A
!{{Yes}} ||{{No}} ||rowspan=2 {{n/a}}
|colspan=2 {{Yes-No}}

Code[change source]

Common code to most if not all the templates in this series:

style="background: #abcdef; color: black; vertical-align: middle; text-align: {{{align|center}}}; {{{style|}}}" class="automatic table-automatic"| {{{1|text}}}

Code only used in this template:

style="background: #FFD; color: black; vertical-align: middle; text-align: center; " class="partial table-partial"|Pending

To make a new table cell template you can use:

{{subst:Table cell templates| text = default text | bg = background color | class = a class name without prefix | align = standard horizontal alignment}}

You should leave out the align parameter and often the class parameter is unnecessary, too.

Add the new template to the table in the common documentation afterwards. Please consider reusing one of the other templates and please choose the color sensibly.

If you find a table cell template that does not take a parameter and you want to be able to change the text in the cell, do not duplicate the template! Instead, edit the template and change the text to a default parameter substitution. For example, if a template's text is Dropped, change that to {{{1|Dropped}}}.

Notes[change source]

  1. The HTML class of table cell templates may be referenced in a user stylesheet to change appearance.
  2. Does not take a parameter; the content should be placed after the template call, separated by a pipe (|) character.
  3. 3.0 3.1 Does not take a parameter; the content should be placed after the template call.
  4. There is a pre-existing template in Simple Wikipedia named {{good}}. Calling {{yes|Good}} will produce the same output as the English Wikipedia's {{good}} template.
    IMPORTANT! If any page is copied from English Wikipedia, every call to the {{good}} template must be changed to {{yes|Good}}. Failure to replace the good template will result in the icon Good article being displayed in the upper right-hand side of the page, indicating that this is a good quality article.
  5. Does not take a parameter; not really a table cell template at all, but here for completeness
