This template is used to nominate a template for discussion.

Basic usage[rætta wikitekst]

Substitute this template onto the template you wish to nominate, i.e. add the following code and press save.

{{subst:Template for discussion}}

Nominating a group of templates[rætta wikitekst]

To nominate multiple templates for deletion under the same heading, use the |heading= parameter to specify the heading under which the discussion is taking place. Type the following at the top of each individual template:

{{subst:Template for discussion|heading=HEADING}}

where HEADING is the name of the section heading under which you will list the templates for deletion.

Display on articles[rætta wikitekst]

Unless you do something unusual such as enclosing in noinclude tags, articles that use the nominated template will provide a notification and link to the discussion. By default the article will show the following just above the display of the nominated template:

There are various other options, specified by the |type= parameter.

Inline[rætta wikitekst]

To nominate inline templates, set |type=inline. This will help with formatting issues that occur when the large notification is displayed. Type the following:

{{subst:Template for discussion|type=inline}}

The notification on articles looks like this: ‹The template [[Template:{{{page}}}|{{{page}}}]] is being [[{{{link}}}|considered for deletion]].› 

Tiny[rætta wikitekst]

To use even smaller notifications, for inline template nominations, set |type=tiny. Type the following

{{subst:Template for discussion|type=tiny}}

which will produce the following notification: [[{{{link}}}|‹See TfD›]]

Sidebar[rætta wikitekst]

To nominate templates that are used as sidebars, such as infoboxes, specify |type=sidebar, i.e.

{{subst:Template for discussion|type=sidebar}}

which produces:

You can alternatively use |type=infobox or |type=box to produce the same result.

Disabled[rætta wikitekst]

Finally it is possible to disable the notification completely by typing |type=disabled. You can use this when everything else fails.

{{subst:Template for discussion|type=disabled}}

Which type should be used?[rætta wikitekst]

For example, suppose that a template called {{Raisins}} outputs the link "dried grapes". Here's how it might appear in an article:

If the default type were to be inserted into the template, the following would result:

And it is impossible for the reader to identify the template which is under discussion.

Using |type=inline instead generates the following result:

The downside is a greater degree of interference with the article's text, so the decision of which type to use should be made on a case-by-case basis. In rare cases, where the insertion of any template is deemed too detrimental to a large number of articles, it might be advisable to disable the notifications completely.

Categorisation[rætta wikitekst]

Templates that transclude this template will be added to Category:Templates for deletion.
