Usage[edit]

This template provides a standardised format for collective work header templates. It is not intended to be used directly on pages, rather a template using it is made for each collective work. For example, {{EAm06}}.

Parameters[edit]

Parameter to use from the calling template[edit]

The following parameters can be used from templates using this template (e.g. {{EAm06}}:

  • basename: main page of the collective work, e.g. "The Encyclopedia Americana (1906)"
  • displayname: the title of the collective work that will be shown: e.g. "The Encyclopedia Americana" (optional)
  • author: author of the collective work (optional)
  • editor: editor of the collective work (optional)
  • translator: translator of the collective work (optional)
  • override_author, override_translator (both optional), function as in normal headers
  • disclaimer: disclaimer for the collective work (optional). This will give a link to [[{{{basename}}}/Project Disclaimer]]</nowiki>, which is the standard location for a disclaimer. Enter the display text of the link, e.g. "the 1906 Encyclopedia Americana disclaimer". If this is not given, nothing will be shown.

Parameters to use for the end page[edit]

Other parameters in the template are designed to be used from the end page:

  • previous, next: previous and next articles in the work.
  • noarticle: enter "True" to flag an article as having no text - this will cause it to be categorised into [[Category:{{{Basename}}} articles without text]] (optional)
  • notes: additional notes on the article (optional)
  • Sister wiki links (all optional): wikipedia, commons, commonscat, wikiquote, wikinews, wiktionary, wikibooks, wikiversity, wikispecies, meta
  • Internal links (all optional): related_author, portal

Categorisation[edit]

This template will categorise templates using it into Category:Standardised collective work headers.

This template will categorise articles into [[Category:{{{basename}}} articles]] or [[Category:{{{Basename}}} articles without text]], depending on whether the {{{noarticle}}} parameter is given in that article.

Copy-paste example[edit]

Use the following code to make new collective work headers:

{{Collective work header
 | basename     = The Encyclopedia Americana (1906)
 | displayname  = The Encyclopedia Americana
 | author       = 
 | translator   = 
 | disclaimer   = the 1906 Encyclopedia Americana disclaimer
<!-- Below this point are "pass-though" parameters that shouldn't be edited here -->
 | previous       = {{{previous|}}}
 | next           = {{{next|}}}
 | wikipedia      = {{{wikipedia|}}}
 | commons        = {{{commons|}}}
 | commonscat     = {{{commonscat|}}}
 | wikiquote      = {{{wikiquote|}}}
 | wikinews       = {{{wikinews|}}}
 | wiktionary     = {{{wiktionary|}}}
 | wikibooks      = {{{wikibooks|}}}
 | wikiversity    = {{{wikiversity|}}}
 | wikispecies    = {{{wikispecies|}}}
 | meta           = {{{meta|}}}
 | portal         = {{{portal|}}}
 | related_author = {{{related_author|}}}
 | notes          = {{{notes|}}}
 | noarticle      = {{{noarticle|}}}
}}
