Template:Template link expanded

{{Template:Template link expanded}}

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

    This template, often abbreviated as {{tlx}}, is used to provide stylized formatting to template displays without actually using the template itself.

    ParametersEdit

    With the exception of alttext, the named parameters are toggles that are either omitted (default in most cases) or activated (by being assigned a value such as "on", "yes", "true", "include", etc.). They may be included in any order (see Examples below). Certain templates have the parameter "on" by default; see the main table for all alternate options.
