This is the {{tlp}} or template link with parameters template.

It can be used in documentation and talk page discussions to show how a template name would be used in code.

Here is how this template looks. Code to the left and actual rendering to the right:

Template:Tlc = {{name|parameters}}

Features of {{tlp}}:

This template belongs to a whole family of similar templates. See the see also section below for some of them. For instance, when writing documentation you might want to avoid a lot of unnecessary links, since it decreases readability. Then on the first occurrence of a template name use {{tl}}, {{tlp}} or {{tlx}}, and then use {{tlf}}, Template:Tld or Template:Tlc.

Examples

CodeResultComment
Template:Tlc {{tlp|...}} Shows its own syntax.
Template:Tlc {{name}}
Template:Tlc {{name|one}}
Template:Tlc {{name|one|two}}
{{tlp|name|a|b|c|d|e|f|g|h|i|j}} {{name|a|b|c|d|e|f|g|h}} Shows up to eight parameters. The rest are dropped.
Template:Tlc {{name|||three|four}} Also shows empty parameters.
Template:Tlc {{name|||three||}} Even shows empty parameters that come in the end.
Template:Tlc {{name}} Equal signs is a problem, but there is a fix.
Template:Tlc {{name|one=a|two=b}} Use numbered parameters to fix it. Remember to start from 2, since the "name" is number 1.

If you have equal signs in your template parameters then some find it simpler to code it using <nowiki> tags. Here's how to do that. Code to the left and actual rendering to the right:

{{tlp|name|<nowiki>one=a|two=b</nowiki>}} = {{name|one=a|two=b}}
