Template documentation (for the template shown above, sometimes hidden or invisible)

Template:Docparam is used to document parameters in template documentation pages. It provides all the necessary information about a parameter and should be used on all template documentations with parameters.


{{docparam |name= |req= |default= |default2= |desc=



Icon required
Name of the parameter. Certain strings are automatically translated to allow for specification of alternative choices or parameter ranges.

Translated strings (all of these need to be enclosed by spaces):

  • >> is converted "up to", to indicate a range of possible parameters.
  • // is converted to "or", for alternative choices.
  • ++ is converted to a comma with a trailing space (", "), for listing parameters which are separate but work the same (e.g. "contentA1, contentB1").
Icon required

  • yes — Required parameter, indicated with Icon required.
