Explanation

{{tlg}} (template link, general) is a general template for inserting a template link. It can be used to replace or implement any of the more specific {{tl*}} templates, e.g. {{tl}}, {{tlx}} or {{tlb}}. Parameters are:

  • ​code=yes​: Use the <code>…</code> HTML attribute (usually a monospaced font), like for {{tlc}} {{tlx}} and {{tlxb}}
  • ​bold=yes​: Boldface the text, like for {{tlb}} and {{tlxb}}
  • ​italic=yes​: Italicizes the parameters, like for {{tlxi}}
  • ​nolink=yes​: Don't insert a template link, like for {{tlf}}, {{tld}}, and {{tlc}}
  • ​braceinside=yes​: Put braces inside the link, like for {{tn}}
  • ​subst=yes​: Add a ​subst:​ prefix, like for {{tls}}
  • ​alttext=FOO​: Specify alternative surface text for a link, like for {{tla}}
  • ​nowrap=yes​: Prevent line breaks in output

Examples

Note
On the source sister projects, en.wikipedia and Meta, X0, X1, X2, …, X9 are sandbox templates for experimentation on involved templates that need be in template space. An auto-cleansing software facility exists that might be used to duplicate the facility on other Sister projects.
