Template:For timeline/sandbox

Script error: No such module "for outline/sandbox".

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

This template creates a wiki-link which points readers to the corresponding timeline article.


Basic usage:

     {{For timeline}}

This will create an indented and italicized cross-reference like the following:

     For a chronoligical guide to this subject, see Timeline of the Manhattan Project.

The template should automatically detect the correct title of the timeline article, as long as it has been named in one of the more common patterns for such articles (check the link to be sure it worked). If the template doesn't detect the correct name automatically, then add it in manually like this:

     {{For timeline|Title of timeline article}}

Don't wikilink the parameter; the template will do this for you.


The use of this template in a hatnote at the top of an article should be avoided (per WP:RELATED) unless the article and the related timeline article have ambiguous titles. The template can be used at the top or below a narrative section, or below a list in some other format.
