{{tlg}} (template link, general) is a general template for inserting a template link. It can be used to replace or implement any of the more specific {{tl*}} templates, e.g. {{tl}}, {{tlx}} or {{tlb}}. Parameters are:

  • code: Use the <code>…</code> HTML attribute (usually a monospaced font), like for {{tlx}} and {{tlxb}}
  • bold=yes: Boldface the text, like for {{tlb}} and {{tlxb}}
  • italic=yes: Italicizes the parameters, like for {{tlxi}}
  • nolink=yes: Don't insert a template link
  • braceinside=yes: Put braces inside the link, like for {{tn}}
  • subst=yes: Add a subst: prefix, like for {{tls}}
  • alttext=FOO: Specify alternative surface text for a link, like for {{tla}}
  • nowrap=yes: Prevent line breaks in output


On the source sister projects, en.wikipedia and Meta, X0, X1, X2, …, X9 are sandbox templates for experimentation on involved templates that need be in template space. An auto-cleansing software facility exists that might be used to duplicate the facility on other Sister projects.
Code Result Remark
{{Tlg|Abc}} {{Template:!((:Template:Abc|Abc]]}}  
{{Tlg|abC}} {{Template:!((:Template:AbC|abC]]}} template names are case-sensitive
{{Tlg|abc}} {{Template:!((:Template:Abc|abc]]}} first letter is case-insensitive though
{{Tlg|x0}} {{Template:!((:Template:X0|x0]]}}  
{{Tlg|x0|code=yes}} {{Template:!((:Template:X0|x0]]}} code style
{{Tlg|x0|bold=yes}} {{Template:!((:Template:X0|x0]]}} bold style
{{Tlg|x1|one|italic=yes}} {{Template:!((:Template:X1|x1]]|one}} italic style
{{Tlg|x0|nolink=yes}} {{x0}}  
{{Tlg|x0|subst=yes}} {{subst:Template:!((:Template:X0|x0]]}}  
{{Tlg|x0|braceinside=yes}} {Template:!((:Template:X0|{x0}]]}  
{{Tlg|x0|alttext=Link to x0 template}} {{Template:!((:Template:X0|Link to x0 template]]}}  
{{Tlg|x0|bold=yes|code=yes|braceinside=yes}} {Template:!((:Template:X0|{x0}]]} No reason you can't combine multiple parameter settings.
{{Tlg|x1|one}} {{Template:!((:Template:X1|x1]]|one}}  
{{Tlg|x2|one|two}} {{Template:!((:Template:X2|x2]]|one|two}}

{{Tlg|x2|one|two|bold=yes|code=yes}} {{Template:!((:Template:X2|x2]]|one|two}} … in any order …
{{Tlg|x2|one|code=yes|two|bold=yes|three}} {{Template:!((:Template:X2|x2]]|one|two|three}} … even intermixed …
{{Tlg|x2|one|code=yes|two|bold=yes|three|italic=yes}} {{Template:!((:Template:X2|x2]]|one|two|three}} … with many different configurations.
{{Tlg|x3|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10}} {{Template:!((:Template:X3|x3]]|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10}}

{{Tlg|x5|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10&#124;11}} {{Template:!((:Template:X5|x5]]|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10|11}} &#124; for more
{{Tlg|convert|<nowiki>14|m|ftin|abbr=out|sp=us</nowiki>}} unlimited parameters as one nowiki string
{{Tlg}} {{Template:!((:Template:Tlg|Tlg]]}} with no arguments, the current page name is substituted
{{Tlg|x1|x=u}} {{Template:!((:Template:X1|x1]]}} = won't work
{{Tlg|x1|x&#61;u}} {{Template:!((:Template:X1|x1]]|x=u}} &#61; is okay
{{Tlg|x1|x{{=}}u}} {{Template:!((:Template:X1|x1]]|x=u}} {{=}} is okay
{{Tlg|x1|x<nowiki>=</nowiki>u}} {{Template:!((:Template:X1|x1]]|x=u}} sticky nowiki is okay
{{Tlg|x2||two||}} {{Template:!((:Template:X2|x2]]||two||}} empty parameters work too, even at the end
{{Tlg|x2|2=one|two}} {{Template:!((:Template:X2|x2]]|two}} two clobbers 2=one
{{Tlg|x2|3=two|2=one}} {{Template:!((:Template:X2|x2]]|one|two}} right to left okay
