Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Template:User talk other

From FlightGear wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


The following template description is not displayed when the template is inserted in an article.

Goal

This template can be used to show a different text if it is not used on a page in the user talk namespace, the namespace used for user discussion pages. It can also be used for category suppression, to avoid that a page is categorized if it is not in the user talk namespace

If more than one namespace need to be handled, use {{namespace detect}}.

Usage

{{user talk other|text if user talk|text if other |demospace=}}
text if user talk
Optional text to use if the template is on a page in the user talk namespace.
text if other
Optional text to use if the template is on a page in any other namespace.
demospace
Optional namespace override. If it is empty or undefined the namespace of the page with the template on will be used, if it is user talk then text if user talk will be shown and if it is other or any other namespace then text if other will be used.

Examples

Text selection

Since this is not a user talk page {{user talk other|this text will not be shown|this text will be shown}}.

Since this is not a user talk page this text will be shown.

However with {{user talk other|a little bit of cheating|this text will not be shown|demospace=user talk}}...

However with a little bit of cheating...

Category suppression

Using the template like this will only categorize a page when it is in the user talk namespace:

{{user talk other|[[Category:User discussion pages with welcome template]]}}
