Explanation[edit source]

{{tlg}} (template link, general) is a general template for inserting a template link. It can be used to replace or implement any of the more specific {{tl*}} templates, e.g. {{tl}}, {{tlx}} or {{tlb}}. Parameters are:

  • bold=yes: Boldface the text, like for {{tlb}} and {{tlxb}}
  • italic=yes: Italicizes the parameters, like for {{tlxi}}
  • tt=yes: Use a monospaced font, like for {{tlx}} and {{tlxb}}
  • code=yes: Use the <code>...</code> HTML attribute (usually a monospaced font), like for {{tlc}}
  • nolink=yes: Don't insert a template link, like for {{tlf}}, {{tld}}, and {{tlc}}
  • anypage=yes: Allow linking to arbitrary page (not just template), as with tlx tlu
  • braceinside=yes: Put braces inside the link, like for {{tn}}
  • subst=yes: Add a subst: prefix, like for {{tls}}
  • alttext=FOO: Specify alternative surface text for a link, like for {{tla}}

Examples[edit source]

Code Result Remark
{{Tlg|Abc}} {{[[Template:Abc|Abc]]}}  
{{Tlg|ABC}} {{[[Template:ABC|ABC]]}}  
{{Tlg|AbC}} {{[[Template:AbC|AbC]]}}  
{{Tlg|x0}} {{[[Template:x0|x0]]}}  
{{Tlg|x0|bold=yes}} {{[[Template:x0|x0]]}}

{{Tlg|x0|braceinside=yes}} [[Template:x0|{{x0}}]]  
{{Tlg|x0|alttext=Link to x0 template}} {{[[Template:x0|Link to x0 template]]}}  
{{Tlg|x0|anypage=yes}} {{[[x0|x0]]}} Now the expression links to x0 (the spaceship, genetic disease, etc.) rather than Template:x0. Mostly useful for templates in user space.
{{Tlg|x0|bold=yes|tt=yes|braceinside=yes}} [[Template:x0|{{x0}}]] No reason you can't combine multiple parameter settings.
{{Tlg|x1|one}} {{[[Template:x1|x1]]|one}}  
{{Tlg|x2|one|two}} {{[[Template:x2|x2]]|one|two}}  
{{Tlg|x2|bold=yes|tt=yes|one|two}} {{[[Template:x2|x2]]|one|two}} Can combine named and anonymous parameters ...

{{Tlg|x2|one|tt=yes|two|bold=yes|three}} {{[[Template:x2|x2]]|one|two|three}} ... even intermixed ...
{{Tlg|x2|one|tt=yes|two|bold=yes|three|italic=yes}} {{[[Template:x2|x2]]|one|two|three}} ... with many different configurations.

{{Tlg|x5|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10&#124;11}} {{[[Template:x5|x5]]|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10|11}} &#124; for more
{{Tlg|convert|<nowiki>14|m|ftin|abbr=out|sp=us</nowiki>}} unlimited parameters as one nowiki string
{{Tlg}} {{[[Template:Tlg/doc|Tlg/doc]]}} with no arguments, the current page name is substituted
{{Tlg|x1|x=u}} {{[[Template:x1|x1]]}} = won't work
{{Tlg|x1|x&#61;u}} {{[[Template:x1|x1]]|x=u}} &#61; is okay
{{Tlg|x1|x{{=}}u}} {{[[Template:x1|x1]]|x=u}} {{=}} is okay
{{Tlg|x1|<nowiki>x=u</nowiki>}} {{[[Template:x1|x1]]|x=u}} sticky nowiki is okay

{{Tlg|x2| {{!}} two}} {{[[Template:x2|x2]]| | two}} {{[[Template:!|!]]}} is dubious
{{Tlg|x2|<nowiki/>|two}} {{[[Template:x2|x2]]||two}} empty nowiki string works
{{Tlg|x2|2=|3=two}} {{[[Template:x2|x2]]|two}} empty really doesn't work
{{Tlg|x2|2=one|two}} {{[[Template:x2|x2]]|two}} two clobbers 2=one
{{Tlg|x2|3=two|2=one}} {{[[Template:x2|x2]]|one|two}} right to left okay
