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

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


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

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


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


Text selection

Since this is a template page {{main other|this text will ''not'' be shown|this text ''will'' be shown}}.

Since this is a template page this text will be shown.

However with {{main other|a little bit of|some cheating|demospace=main}}...

Category suppression

Using the template like this will only categorize a page when it is in the main article space:

{{main other|[[Category:Boeing]]}}
