Usage

All parameters:

{{Portal maintenance status |{{subst:DATE}} |subpages= |nonstandard= |broken= |incomplete= |upgrade= |manual= |maintainer1= |maintainer2= |maintainer3= |maintainer4= |note=}}

Include the following parameters if they are applicable; otherwise, omit the parameter (or set to no)

  • |manual=yes (or any other value): Portal is manually maintained. You should specify at least one maintainer using the |maintainer[1-4]= parameter.
  • |nonstandard=yes (or any other value): Portal has a nonstandard layout
  • |incomplete=yes (or any other value): Portal is under construction or incomplete
  • |upgrade=yes (or any other value): Portal needs upgrading. Use the |note= field to elaborate.
  • |broken= Portal has issues needing attention. Use the |note= field to elaborate.
    Set to yes, major or serious: for portals that have errors or major problems, such as Lua timeouts, template parsing limits exceeded, or completely wrecked layout
    Set to minor, access or layout: for portals that have minor problems, such as accessibility issues or minor layout issues

The following parameters should be populated, where possible:

  • |date= Date of last template update
  • |maintainer[1-4]=Example: Used to specify users who look after the portal in question.
  • |subpages= Subpage triage status
    Set to untriaged or yes (or leave unset) if the subpages have not yet been checked.
    Once a portal's subpages have been checked, set to:
    checked or triaged or keep (or any other value): if any unneeded subpages have been removed.
    none or single or singlepage or no: if the portal has a single page layout (no subpages exist).

This template can also hold miscellaneous notes:

  • |note=Text goes here: to record notes in plain text or even wikitext markup.

Categories

When in portal space, this template populates the following hidden categories (or their subcategories):

Display

By default, this template produces no visible output when in portal space.

  • To show hidden categories, enable that setting in your preferences ("Appearance" tab, checkbox under "Advanced options")
  • To show a message box like the examples below, add the following line to your personal CSS:
    div.portal-maintenance-status { display:block !important }
    
  • Alternatively, the messages may be viewed on portal talk pages, inside the {{WikiProject Portals}} banner (which automatically transcludes them)
