Jump to: navigation, search

The {{talkspace detect}} meta-template helps other templates detect what type of page they are on. It detects and groups all the different talkspaces used on Wikipedia into several types:

main = Defines the output if the template is located on main/article talkspace; aka Talk:.
user, wikipedia, file, mediawiki, template, help, category and portal = Defines the output if the template is located on the specified talkspaces; aka User talk:, Wikipedia talk:, File talk:, etc.
default = Defines the output if the template is located on any talkspaces that were not defined as a parameter in this meta-template.
other = Defines the output if the template is located on any namespaces (not the associated talkspace).

Usage

This template takes one or more parameters named after the different page types as listed above. Like this:

{{talkspace detect
| main    = Article talk page text
| user    = User talk page text
| default = Text for all other namespace talk pages
| other   = Text for all namespaces
}}

By using an empty parameter you can make it so the template doesn't render anything for some specific page type. Like this:

{{talkspace detect
| main    = 
| default = Text for all other namespace talk pages
}}
