Note to template editors: Edits to the taxonomic terms (taxa) in this template depend for their effect in manual taxoboxes on the colour-determining taxon being at a rank allowed to change the taxobox colour by {{Taxobox}}, so this may need altering. Colours must be defined using the rgb(..,..,..) format to enable {{Sets taxobox colour}} to work correctly.

Adhbhar - Purpose[deasaich]

This template is one of a number of configuration templates used in the taxobox system, in this case in both manual and automated taxoboxes.

It generates the appropriate colour for a taxobox.

It should only be used by other taxobox templates.

Use by taxonomy templates[deasaich]

Manual taxoboxes call this template from {{Taxobox}}, which looks at the values of ranks given in the taxobox from phylum upwards and uses the taxobox colour for the first colour-setting taxon found (or the error colour if none is found). {{Sets taxobox colour}} is used to decide whether a taxon is colour-setting, which it does by using this template.

Automated taxoboxes use a function in Module:Autotaxobox, which finds a colour-setting taxon by searching up the taxonomic hierarchy coded in taxonomy templates (i.e. templates with names of the form "Taxonomy/taxon-name").

Setting colour within a taxobox[deasaich]

Both manual and automatic taxoboxes usually generate their colours automatically. If this fails, or if for some reason the automatically generated colour should be over-ridden, |color_as= can be used to set the colour based on a supplied taxon. Thus:

| color_as = Animalia

within a taxobox forces its colour to be the one appropriate for animal taxoboxes. The taxon given as the value of |color_as= must be in the switch statement in this template. Thus |color_as=Felis fails and assigns the error colour.

Other configuration templates include:

  • {{Gaelicize rank}} – converts the Latin form that is used in taxonomy templates to the Gaelic equivalent
  • {{Principal rank}} – defines the Linnaean principal ranks that are shown by default in automated taxoboxes
  • {{Is italic taxon}} – defines which ranks cause taxon names to be italicized in automated taxoboxes
