Usage[edit]

This template is designed to simplify formatting for patents on Author and Portal pages.

Parameters[edit]

  • country: The country or possessive of the country the patent was issued in. E.g. "United States" or "Canadian". This will be used to construct the link to the patent.
  • number: The number of the patent. This will be used to construct the link to the patent.
    • numonly: Any non-blank entry means that only the number will be displayed (e.g. "285584" instead of "United States patent 285584"). Useful for patent listings when the country is already known.
  • author: The inventor/author of the patent. This is a free-text field, you need to link authors yourself.
  • filed: The filing date of the patent (optional).
  • issued: The issue date of the patent (optional).
  • granted: The granting date of the patent (optional).
  • index: The name of the index of the patent, if uploaded and the index exists (optional).
