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


This type of archiving is done by SpBot (not by ArchiverBot). It requires the use of either {{section resolved}} or the timeout parameter of this template (normal archiving).

It does not matter where the template "Section resolved" is placed within the section. It will always refers to the last/previous heading of the section to be archived.

To quickly use a standard setup to archive your user talk page, see #Example.

Template parameters[edit]

Template parameters


Parameter <code>age</code> defines the required age of the the template ''Section resolved'' in days. After this amount of days the section will be archived.


You can use variables in your <code>archive</code>-parameter as [[#.22Archive.22_parameter_variables|listed below]]. Example: <code>archive=Talk:Some page/Archives/((year))/((month:short))</code> (just an example, not really used there)

Unbalanced wikitextrequired

The parameter <code>overview</code> can be used to display a link to the location of the archive page. Example code: <code><nowiki>overview=[[/Archive]]</nowiki></code> Results in an archive overview link at ''<nowiki><code>[[/Archive]]</nowiki></code>''. An alternative to this parameter is the use of [[Template:Archive box]].

Page nameoptional
Latest archivelatest archive

The parameter <code>latest archive</code> can be used to display a link to the current archive. Example code: <code><nowiki>latest archive=[[Wikisource:Forum/Archiv/2016/October]]</nowiki></code> Results in: The latest archive is located under '''[[Commons:Forum/Archiv/2016/October]]'''.

Page nameoptional

The parameter <code>show</code> defines if the template should display anything or not: <code>show=yes</code> or <code>show=no</code>. This parameter can be used if the template is used on a page which has an own intro explaining the archiving parameters.


Parameter <code>level</code> defines which heading level should be archived. Deeper heading levels are treated as part of the specified level.


This parameter specifies which timestamp should be used for distribution into the archives. In the parameter <code>archive</code> you can use variables referring to the date.

<code>timecompare</code> defines which timestamp is used for this parameter <code>archive</code>.
* <code>timecompare = resolved</code>: Timestamp given by {{Tl|Section resolved}}
* Any other value or empty: the oldest timestamp of the whole section


Specifies the number of days have to pass by to consider a section as 'resolved' automatically, even if no {{Tl|Section resolved}} template was set. Archiving will be proceeded if the specified period of time (''timeout'') has passed since the last comment. The template {{Tl|DNAU}} is supported.


"Archive" parameter variables[edit]

You can use the following variables in your archive-parameter:

variable meaning
((year)) year e.g. 2020
((month:long)) full monthname e.g. February
((month:short)) short monthname e.g. Feb
((month:##)) month as two digits e.g. 02
((week)) week date as a number e.g. 15, 4 (per ISO 8601/DIN 1355-1)
((week:##)) week date as a two digits e.g. 15, 04 (per ISO 8601/DIN 1355-1)
((day:##)) day of month as two digits e.g. 31, 07
((quarter)) quarter e.g. 3
((quarter:##)) quarter as two digits e.g. 03
((quarter:i)) quarter as lowercase Roman numerals e.g. iii
((quarter:I)) quarter as uppercase Roman numerals e.g. III
((half-year)) half-year e.g. 2
((half-year:i)) half-year as lowercase Roman numeral e.g. ii
((half-year:I)) half-year as uppercase Roman numeral e.g. II
((FULLPAGENAME)) The namespace + page name of the current page. Same as {{FULLPAGENAME}}, but with normal brackets. Use this instead of hard coding your page name.

Example: archive=((FULLPAGENAME))/Archive/((year))((month:short))


The following example is derived from the archiving setup of commons:Commons:Village pump. All marked/tagged sections with level 2 (that is ==) will be archived one day after placement of Template:Section resolved. The archives are at commons:Special:PrefixIndex/Commons:Village pump. The archiving will be done to /Archive/2017/January if the first comment in this section was made in January.

{{Autoarchive resolved section

That will look like this:

SpBot archives all sections tagged with {{section resolved|1=~~~~}} after 1 day. For the archive overview, see archive.

Signature format[edit]

The date and time part of the signature are important for recognition of the timestamp. The default format specified by MediaWiki is sufficient (11:55, 29. Nov 2020 (UTC)). It corresponds to the following structure:

{{subst:LOCALTIME}}, {{subst:LOCALDAY}}. {{subst:LOCALMONTHABBREV}} {{subst:LOCALYEAR}} (UTC)

Other formats are not supported.

Error lists[edit]

Talk pages containing errors in their main templates or {{Section resolved}} are shown in the following lists and on the corresponding talk page.
