Template:Deprecated

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


UsageEdit

Marks a template as deprecated (i.e. do not use this template from now on). Existing templates may be replaced by a suitable replacement.

This template will only be visible (by default) in the Template namespace. If the template is wrapped in <noinclude> tags, it will not be able to categorise instance of the template.

ExampleEdit

{{deprecated|See the replacement: {{tl|new template}}}}

CategorisationEdit

Deprecate templates, template with this template, will be sorted into Category:Deprecated templates.

Pages that use deprecated templates will be sorted into the maintenance category, Category:Pages containing deprecated templates. This function will only work if the {{deprecated}} template is transcluded with the rest of the deprecated template code (ie. it is not omitted by the use of <noinclude> or <includeonly> tags).

Display in all namespacesEdit

To display a warning in other namespaces (to more easily determine where in a page a deprecated template is being used), add the following to your common.css:

.deprecated-template-warning { display:inline!important }
