Nýtsla[rætta wikitekst]

This is a typing short cut for linking to steamship articles named in the format "MS Shipname (Year)". Since ship names are italicized in article text, linking to them in the usual manner means typing everything twice, such as [[MS Shipname (ID)|MS ''Shipname'' (ID)]]. This template halves that to {{MS|Shipname|ID}}.

Formal Usage[rætta wikitekst]

  • {{MS|Ship Name}}
  • {{MS|Ship Name|ID}}, where ID can be the hull number, launch year, or pennant number, as specified in the article title.

Dømi[rætta wikitekst]

Template usage Equivalent wikicode Final result
{{MS|Antenor|1957}} [[MS Antenor (1957)|MS ''Antenor'' (1957)]] MS Antenor (1957)
{{MS|Queen Victoria|ship}} [[MS Queen Victoria (ship)|MS ''Queen Victoria'' (ship)]] MS Queen Victoria (ship)
{{MS|Princess of Norway}} [[MS Princess of Norway|MS ''Princess of Norway'']] MS Princess of Norway

Last example could be used to link to ship index (disambiguation) page

Optional display control parameter[rætta wikitekst]

There is an optional third parameter that controls which pieces of text are displayed in the article. It's value is treated as a binary number and will display the corresponding "bits". So setting the 8's bit will add a slash ("/") in the prefix, the 4's bit will display MS, setting the 2's bit will display the ship name, and setting the 1's bit will display the ID. If binary math isn't your thing, refer to these examples:

Value Parameter(s)
Example Equivalent wikicode Final result
None all {{MS|Antenor|1957}} [[MS Antenor (1957) |MS ''Antenor'' (1957)]] MS Antenor (1957)
1 3rd {{MS|Antenor|1957|1}} [[MS Antenor (1957) |1957]] 1957
2 2nd {{MS|Antenor|1957|2}} [[MS Antenor (1957) |''Antenor'']] Antenor
3 2nd, 3rd {{MS|Antenor|1957|3}} [[MS Antenor (1957) |''Antenor'' (1957)]] Antenor (1957)
4 invalid result {{MS|Antenor|1957|4}} [[MS Antenor (1957) |Invalid Optional Parameter]] Invalid Optional Parameter
5 1st, 3rd {{MS|Antenor|1957|5}} [[MS Antenor (1957) |MS (1957)]] MS (1957)
6 1st, 2nd {{MS|Antenor|1957|6}} [[MS Antenor (1957) |MS ''Antenor'']] MS Antenor
8 all (with "M/S") {{MS|Antenor|1957|8}} [[MS Antenor (1957)|M/S ''Antenor'' (1957)]] M/S Antenor (1957)
13 1st, 3rd (with "M/S") {{MS|Antenor|1957|13}} [[MS Antenor (1957)|M/S (1957)]] M/S (1957)
14 1st, 2nd (with "M/S") {{MS|Antenor|1957|14}} [[MS Antenor (1957)|M/S ''Antenor'']] M/S Antenor
(no 3rd)
{{MS|Princess of Norway|3=2}}
Alternate usage: {{MS|Princess of Norway||2}}
[[MS Princess of Norway |''Princess of Norway'']] Princess of Norway

N.B.: Be careful with the third parameter if not using the second parameter. In the Princess of Norway example above, the "|3=2" means set the third parameter to a value of two, while the alternate syntax shows using a pair of pipes, "||2", to position the value two in the third parameter position.

Using an optional display control parameter value of 6 yields the same results as using {{warship}} to create the same link and text, but saving, coincidentally, 6 characters while editing.

 {{MS|Antenor|1957}} yields the same results as {{warship|MS|Antenor|1957}}
