This documentation is transcluded from Template:Tlx/doc.

This template creates example usage syntax for a template, and links the name to the template page. The name is derived from "Template list expanded".

Up to 7 pass parameters (numbered) for the specified template are displayed as 'placeholders', and more parameters are shown as "|...". An optional SISTER parameter can specify an interwiki prefix to link to another wiki. Examples:
