Wikiquote:Template messages

Templates are used within articles to provide a consistent look to the messages placed into them. Changes to the look, wording, or style of the message can be implemented quickly, because templates are rendered for the reader when the article loads. Spaces in the name are allowed, e.g. {{train topics}}. The first character (only) is not case-sensitive, so {{cleanup}} and {{Cleanup}} both work. This technique is commonly known as transclusion.

Templates can also accept parameters which are then inserted into the output of the template.

Templates in the article namespace exist only to help readers. These can include navigation aids, or warnings that content is sub-standard. Templates that provide information only of service to editors belong on an article's talk page.

Instructions : When you add new template messages to this page, please help keep the tables in alphabetical order.

VLC Icon.svg This article needs to conform to our limits on quotations policy.

The subject of this article is a film, and as a result, there should only be: five quotes per hour (about one quote every 12 minutes).

If you would like to add another quote to the page, you may first need to remove one that is already there in order to keep within the bounds of fair use of copyright material.

Recommended order of cleanup templatesEdit

It is recommended that cleanup and other Wikiquote-maintenance templates be given in a specific order, roughly according to the seriousness of the issues involved:

  1. Deletion templates: {{vfd}}, {{deletebecause}}, {{db}}
  2. Templates raising Wikimedia policy concerns: {{checkcopyright}}, {{copyvio}}, {{npov}}
  3. Merge templates (when applied to the whole page): {{merge}}, {{mergeto}}, {{mergefrom}}
  4. Article introduction or {{no-intro}}
  5. Cleanup templates (except {{no-intro}})
  6. Stub templates
