Template documentation[edit] [history] [purge]

This is the {{high-use}} message box.

It is meant to be put at the top of the documentation for templates used on 200 - 1,000 pages.

For templates used on 1,000 pages or more we instead recommend using {{high-risk}} which has a stronger wording.

Usage[edit]

The template can be used as is. But it can also take some parameters:

  • First parameter is the number of pages. See tools:~dispenser/cgi-bin/embeddedincount.py to find out how many pages use your template.
  • Second parameter is the name of some other talk page if you want discussion to be made there instead. But a better option might be to redirect the talkpage of your template to that other talkpage.

Here are some examples:

{{high-use| 500+ | Wikibooks:Reading room/Technical Assistance }}
{{high-use| 500+ }}
{{high-use| | Wikibooks:Reading room/Technical Assistance }}

The full code for a /doc page top can look like this:

{{documentation subpage}}
{{high-use| 500+ }}
<!-- PLEASE ADD CATEGORIES AND INTERWIKIS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE -->
