Template:As of/doc

From Wazeopedia
This is a documentation subpage for Template:As of.
It contains usage information, categories and other content that is not part of the original template page.

Usage

The template {{as of}} is used to mark potentially dated statements, and will add an article to the appropriate sub-category of Category:Articles containing potentially dated statements. This allows editors to catalogue statements that may become dated over time. The date used for a given statement should be the current date (for currently valid statements) or the date on which the cited reference was produced (for example, when using census data). {{as of}} does not require the editor to give a full date. This template should not be substituted.

Note: This template MUST NOT be used in infoboxes which emit a microformat, as its emitted date markup will conflict with that.

This template does not generate a visible hyperlink in text where it is used.

Syntax

The template can be used in the following forms:

{{As of|year}}
{{As of|year|month}}
{{As of|year|month|day}}
{{As of|month-name day, year}}
{{As of|month-name year}}

Please do not use {{As of|{{CURRENTYEAR}}|{{CURRENTMONTH}}}} or similar; that defeats the point of the template.

Several additional named parameters can also be used (see below).

Parameters

Required

  • year (first parameter) – must be in full numerical format (yyyy)

Optional

  • month (second parameter) – full, abbreviated or numerical formats supported (mm recommended)
  • day (third parameter) – numerical format only, not included in link (dd)

Named

  • alt – optional; allows substitution of different wording and case for the visible text output; if present but no value defined, this parameter is ignored; if a value is defined, values for df and lc parameters are ignored
  • df – optional; allows use of American date format with df=US
  • lc – optional; gives lower case "as of date" when defined; recommended syntax is lc=y
  • url – optional; adds an inline external link (hidden by default) suggesting a webpage for future editors to check for updates to the statement; use the full URL with no spaces. See Wikipedia:As of for displaying links.
