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

Ùsaid - Usage

[deasaich]

The template {{As of}} is used to mark potentially dated statements, and will add an article to the appropriate hidden sub-category of Roinn-seòrsa:Articles containing potentially dated statements. This allows editors to catalogue statements that may become dated over time. The date used for a given statement should be the date of the most recent reliable source (for currently valid statements), or the date on which the cited reference was produced (for example, when using census data). It should not be used for future dates (use {{Update after}} instead). This template should not be substituted.

Notes:

  • This template MUST NOT be used in infoboxes that emit a microformat, as its emitted date markup will conflict with that.
  • This template is not necessary within quotations, and use of the template in such cases should be avoided.

This template does not generate a visible hyperlink in text where it is used.

Usage guidelines

[deasaich]


Using this template with values such as {{As of|now}} or variables such as {{As of|{{CURRENTYEAR}}}} is equivalent to using "currently", which is generally against the precise language guideline.

Syntax

[deasaich]

The template can be used in the following forms, with numeric date information:

{{As of|year}}
{{As of|year|month}}
{{As of|year|month|day}}

Leading zeroes are optional; e.g., {{As of|2024|07|1}} renders: As of 1 Iuchar 2024

Please do not use {{As of|{{CURRENTYEAR}}|{{CURRENTMONTH}}}} or similar. That defeats the purpose of the template.

Several additional named parameters can also be used, including some non-numeric input (see below).


Paramadairean - Parameters

[deasaich]

Required

  • year (first parameter) – must be in full numerical four-digit format (yyyy)

Optional

  • month (second parameter) – full, abbreviated, or two-digit numerical formats supported (01 indicating January, 02 February, etc., but also accepting Jan and January)
  • day (third parameter) – numerical two- or one-digit format only (dd or d)

Named

  • alt – optional; allows substitution of different wording and case for the visible text output (including the date). If present with no value defined, this parameter is ignored; if a value is defined, values for |df and |lc and |since parameters are ignored.
  • df – "date format", optional; allows use of American date format with |df=US. This only has an effect when the full |year|month|day format is also used.
  • lc – "lower case", optional; if given any value at all (e.g. |lc=y) gives lower case "as of date", for use mid-sentence.
  • since – optional; if given any value at all (e.g. |since=y) it changes "As of" to "Since". Use of |lc=y with |since=y gives "since date. Use of |alt= will replace the entire output, including the "Since", as it will with the default "As of".
  • pre – text to insert before the date, and after "[A|a]s of" or "[S|s]ince", e.g. |pre=the first week of used like this: {{As of|1997|pre=the first week of}} produces "As of the first week of 1997".
  • post – text (almost always punctuation) to insert between the date and the superscripted note that is displayed if the user has ".asof-Tag { display: inline !important; }," ".asof-Tag.ref { display: inline !important; }" or ".asof-Tag.ref { display: inline !important; }" added to their common.css page (see Wikipedia:As of § Article maintenance).
    • For these users,
      Teamplaid:Tnl no more bears were found
      gives
      "As of 23 dhen Iuchar 2024,[update] no more bears were found"
      (comma before the superscripted note)
    • while
      Teamplaid:Tnl, no more bears were found
      produces the undesirable result (contrary to WP:REFPUNC) with regard to the location of the comma:
      "As of 23 dhen Iuchar 2024[update], no more bears were found"
Note: the [update] Tag is a Tag that shows when url is not specified and the user has ".asof-Tag { display: inline !important; }" or ".asof-Tag.update { display: inline !important; }" added to their common.css page. It contains a link to edit the page.
  • url – optional; adds an inline external link (hidden by default) suggesting a webpage for future editors to check for updates to the statement; use the full URL with no spaces.
Note: This will only show if the user has ".asof-Tag { display: inline !important; }" or ".asof-Tag.ref { display: inline !important; }" added to their common.css page. It will show as a hyperlinked [ref] Tag after the template. See Wikipedia:As of#Article maintenance.

As of

Use this template to mark potentially dated statements. It will add the article to a corresponding monthly or yearly hidden subcategory of Category:Articles containing potentially dated statements.
