From Tygron Support wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
  • type: table:
    • tableclass: If this has a value, the table has the indicated styling class applied (for example: "table sortable overlay"). If no tablestyle is specified, the default is "wikitable".
    • suppresscategory: If this has a value, no category tag is added.
    • allowselflink: If this does not have a value, a class is added to the table preventing a link to the same article from becoming bold.
    • content: The rows for the table.
    • attribute: If it has a value, treats the first provided value as an attribute name (i.e. fully capitalized).
    • icon: If provided, treats the second provided value as an icon. Placing it ahead of the first entry and injecting a predefined image syntax around it.
    • iconsize: The size of the displayed icon, if "icon" is provided. If no iconsize is specified, the default is "75x75px".
    • prefix: If provided, a prefix is added as a clarifying term in in the link url.
    • postterm: If provided, serves as a postfix before the clarifying term in parenthesis in the link url.
    • postfix: If provided, a postfix is added as a clarifying term in parenthesis in the link url.
    • category: The category to add the article to (if not suppressed).
    • 1...n
  • type: row:
    • named parameters as defined by the table structure

Implementations of this template are automatically listed here: //support.tygron.com/w/index.php?title=Special:WhatLinksHere&target=Template:Collection+table&namespace=10


Create an intermediate template with the following approximate structure. This example will be called "template:panel attributes":

{{collection table<!--
Fixed pass-through parameters-->
| type={{{type|table}}}
| suppresscategory={{{suppresscategory|<noinclude>template</noinclude>}}}
| allowselflink={{{allowselflink|}}}
| linkoverride={{{linkoverride|}}}
| content={{{1|}}}<!--

Configurable attributes-->
| attribute=true
| postfix=Panel Attribute
| category=Panel Attributes<!--

Actual content structure-->
| Attribute name | {{{attribute|}}}<!--
-->| Unit | {{{unit|}}}<!--
-->| Description | {{{description|}}}<!--

Set the category to the category the individual entries need to be collected under (plural). Set the postfix to the clarifying term in the parenthesis in the title (singular). The remainder of the attributes come in pairs: The name in the header, and the parameter used in the rows.

The first value is always a link to a specific article.

Category is automatically included on the page that template is used on (unless supressed) if a category is configured. The first value in the table is automaticallly postfixed if a postfix is configured.

The following parameters must be used when using the final template:

  • type: table to specify the table is being defined
    • suppresscategory: on the overview page
    • allowselflink: on the overview page
    • 1: the content for the table
  • type: row to specify the row is being defined
    • linkoverride: if specified, rather than the automatically generated link for the first entry, use this parameter verbatim
    • attributes defined in the intermediate template for content of rows

On the overview page, structure the template as follows to create a seamless overview:

{{panel attributes|suppresscategory=true|allowselflinks=true|
{{:Visible (Panel Attribute)}}

On the specific page, structure the template as follows to allow for inclusion onto an overview page:

{{panel attributes|
<onlyinclude>{{panel attributes|type=row
  |description=Whether you can see it
}} </onlyinclude>
