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

Usage[change source]

  • This template can be used to display a status indicator along the top of your user page and/or user talk page.
  • It accepts five parameters that should be placed in Special:Mypage/Status: online, busy, around, offline, sleep
  • It is compatible with the Qui status system developed by Hazard-SJ and TheDJ
  • It will only work in the user/user talk namespaces.

By default, the output will be as follows
  • Status: Online Ledgreen.png - online
  • Status: Busy Ledorange.png - busy
  • Status: Around Ledblue.png - around
  • Status: Custom Ledblue.png - custom. (if sleep= is defined)
  • Status: Offline Nuvola apps krec.svg - offline
  • Status: Sleeping Nuvola apps krec.svg - sleep (default)
  • Status: Unknown Ledgray.png - if your status is not being reported correctly
The first parameter is optional and may be used to point to a status page other than Special:Mypage/Status
Can also accept named parameters
  • offset: can be used to offset the status display further to the left
  • offsettop: can be used to offset further down
  • sleep: redefine the "sleep" parameter to anything you like
Example usage
  • {{Statustop|offset=30}}
    – the offset parameter is in px units
  • {{Statustop|link=User talk:Xenocidic/Status|offset=500}}
    – the default is to leave the text and image unlinked
  • {{Statustop|link=User talk:Xenocidic/Status|img_link=Template:Statustop|offset=10}}
    – the img_link parameter accepts both wikipages and external URLs
  • {{Statustop|User:SomeOtherUser/Status}}
    – could be used on a bot page to display the bot-op's status.
  • {{Statustop|sleep=IRC}} - for setting the custom parameter

Unknown status[change source]

If the template is showing as "unknown", then you haven't set your status. You can use the Qui status script or this one to easily update your Special:MyPage/Status page.
