Purpose and naming

Mnemonically 'Template link expanded'. After <tt>{{Tl}}</tt> 'Template link'.

  • This template takes another template-name and some associated pipe-tricked (numbered) parameters (or 'pass parameters'), and displays them as an 'example demonstration' of how the template-name template could be coded, literally. Its primary use is in instruction and documentation.
  • Specifics: Up to 10 pass parameters (numbered or nowiki-keywords) for the specified template are displayed as 'placeholders', and over 10 parameters can be displayed using a coded vertical-bar (as in "&#124;..."). A keyword parameter can be used with equals code &#61; or {{=}} or in nowiki-text: "Template:Tag" or all parameters as a string in "Template:Tag" tags; see Examples at bottom.
  • Exceptions: If the intended template lists numerous parameters, then perhaps this template should really not be used, and just hardcode the usage with Template:TagTemplate:Tag, for example: Template:Tag. If a vertical display, with parameters on their own lines, is desired, this can also be laid out manually in this manner, or more rapidly done with Template:Tag.
