Template:WikiProject banner shell


Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Usage

This template combines several talk page banners (generally three or more) into a nested shell. They were designed for WikiProject banners and will only work reliably with such templates.

WikiProject assessment bots may change shell templates per this usage guideline when the bot is editing the talk page for other reasons. If local consensus on a talk page is to not follow this guideline, please specify |collapsed=yes or |collapsed=no explicitly to override the bots.

Basic syntax

{{WikiProject banner shell|1=
{{FirstProjectBanner}}
{{SecondProjectBanner}}
{{ThirdProjectBanner}}
...
}}

All parameters

{{WikiProject banner shell|blp=|blpo=|activepol=|collapsed=|1=
{{FirstProjectBanner}}
{{SecondProjectBanner}}
{{ThirdProjectBanner}}
...
}}

The |1= is not optional and must be included at the end of the first line.

Optional parameters

  1. Adding |blp=yes or |living=yes will display the {{BLP}} banner above the shell. This must be added for articles about living people.
  2. Adding |blpo=yes will display the {{BLP others}} banner above the shell. This should be used for articles where {{BLP}} does not apply directly to the subject, but which nevertheless have content that directly relates to other living persons. Cannot be used if |blp=yes.
  3. Adding |activepol=yes will display the {{Active politician}} banner above the shell.
  4. Adding |collapsed=yes will cause the outer table to be collapsed, hiding even the project names. Adding |collapsed=no (the default) will cause the outer table to not be collapsed, showing the summary of the banners.

Limitations and bugs

  • Category:Pages where expansion depth is exceeded issue: This "shell template" adds to the "expansion depth" of the page. In certain circumstances, it can cause the page to exceed the limit. If this happens, find out which enclosed template is already "near the limit" and notify the WikiProject responsible for that template that there is an issue. Include details, as some WikiProject templates only get "close to the limit" with uncommon combinations of parameters. Example report. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 16:24, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
