Template documentation [edit]
This documentation is transcluded from Template:Tl/doc. It will not be transcluded on pages that use this template.


The template link template is a simple macro template used to display a template name as a link surrounded by braces, thus showing how the template name would be used in code. Its primary use is in instruction and documentation. A short example is that the code:

{{tl|example}}
generates
{{example}}

More complex variations are described below.

Template:Tl2 differs in that it displays an arguably clearer result like Template:Tlx, and also takes the named parameters 'SISTER=xx' and 'LANG=ll', so that it may also be used to list and link to templates on other English and non-English language sister projects.

Template:Tlx displays with the same enhanced presentation, and also expands several 'placeholder' parameters to generate a sample template call.

Usage

 {{Tl|template name to display}}
and
 {{Tl2|template name to display}} -- local link, just like Tl.
 or
 {{Tl2|SISTER=V:|template name to display}} -- displays a template on Wikiversity
 or
 {{Tl2|LANG=fr.|SISTER=wikisource|template name to display}} -- displays a template 
                       on the French Wikisource sister project.

Example

Code Result
{{Tl|x0}} {{x0}}
