Usage[edit]

  • Attention: Please do not substitute this template.

The tag will decapitalize the first letter of the page's name in the title at the top of the page (and only that). Simply add the tag {{lowercase}} at the top of a page (and optionally, at the top of its talk page). There are no parameters. Examples:

Page name Will display
EBay, IPod, etc. eBay, iPod, etc.
Talk:EBay Talk:eBay

Technical[edit]

This template wraps the magic word DISPLAYTITLE so that it works automatically in any namespace (main, talk, template, etc.) to decapitalise the first letter of the name of a page it is transcluded on. (Previously, this template achieved this using JavaScript, but the DISPLAYTITLE method makes the change for all users, even those with JavaScript disabled in their browser).
