This documentation is transcluded from Template:Event/doc.


This template is for displaying information about single real-world events (e.g. Wikimedia in meatspace). It adds pages to the relevant "Events in <year>" categories.

It implements (some of) the h-event microformat.

Usage[edit]

{{event
| what     = Descriptive title of the event
| when     = Date and time, e.g. 2017-06-15 14:30 UTC+8:00
| end      = Date and time, e.g. 2017-06-15 16:30 UTC+8:00
| location = Location of the event
| who      = Responsible organisation or person
| url      = External URL if applicable (defaults to current page)
| summary  = General description paragraph
}}

Notes:

  • The end parameter is optional.
  • If no url is given, it defaults to the canonical URL of the page on which the template appears.
  • Events in the future will be added to Category:Future events and displayed with a yellow star in their box's header.
