Template:Craft propulsion

From FlightGear wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

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


Convert a craft's propulsion into a link to a category page and append the category to the calling page.


{{craft propulsion
| propulsion
| pre =
The aircraft, spacecraft, vehicle, or seacraft propulsion. Although this can be any text, special parameter values, independent of capitalisation, will be associated with a category. This will result in the creation of an internal wiki link to the category as well as appending the category to the article. See the Craft propulsion section below for a table of values.
Text to prefix prior to the link text. This is useful for creating lists.

Craft propulsion

The following tables show the special values for the propulsion parameter. To extend these lists, both the {{craft propulsion}} template and {{craft propulsion/doc}} documentation template need to be updated. Translations of the link text are supported.


This is for the Category:Aircraft by propulsion subcategory of Category:Aircraft.
