Template:WikiProject Film/doc

The {{WikiProject Film}} project banner template should be added (never subst:ed) to the talk page of every article within the scope of the project. While the template does not require any additional parameters, it has a number of optional ones that add various extra features to the banner.

Basic usageEdit

An article's quality assessment is generated from the |class= parameter in the {{WikiProject Film}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Film|class=}}

The following values may be used for the |class= parameter to describe the quality of the article (see Wikipedia:WikiProject Film/Assessment#Film grading scheme for assessment criteria):

|class=FA (for featured articles only); adds articles to Category:FA-Class film articles Featured article FA 
|class=GA (for good articles only); adds articles to Category:GA-Class film articles  GA 
|class=B adds articles to Category:B-Class film articles if they meet the B-Class criteria B-Class article B 
|class=C adds articles to Category:C-Class film articles C-Class article C 
|class=Start adds articles to Category:Start-Class film articles Start-Class article Start 
|class=Stub adds articles to Category:Stub-Class film articles Stub-Class article Stub 
|class=FL for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class film articles Featured list FL 
|class=List adds articles to Category:List-Class film articles  List 
|class=SIA for set index articles; adds articles to Category:SIA-Class film articles SIA-Class article SIA 
|class=Disambig for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class film articles Disambiguation page Disambig 

By default, any articles with an empty |class= parameter are added to Category:Unassessed film articles.

For redirects and other pages that are not articles, the class will be set automatically. However, the |class= parameter may still be set manually using the following values:

|class=Book for Wikipedia books; adds pages to Category:Book-Class film articles Wikipedia Book Book 
|class=Category for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class film articles Category page Category 
|class=Draft for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class film articles  Draft 
|class=File for files and timed text; adds pages to Category:File-Class film articles  File 
|class=Portal for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class film articles  Portal 
|class=Project for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class film articles  Project 
|class=Redirect for redirects; adds pages to Category:Redirect-Class film articles Redirect page Redirect 
|class=Template for templates and modules; adds pages to Category:Template-Class film articles  Template 
|class=NA for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class film articles  NA 

Optional parametersEdit


  • listas – a sortkey to produce a correct ordering of pages within a category, e.g. for The Fifth Element set |listas=Fifth Element, The
  • needs-image - set |needs-image=yes if the article needs an image, such as a poster or on-set photo
  • needs-infobox – set |needs-infobox=yes if the article needs an infobox, e.g. {{Infobox film}}

To avoid needlessly cluttering up talk pages, it is usually appropriate to remove any unused parameters from the template.
