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


Place the {{WikiProject Tennis}} template on the talk page of any tennis related article, filling in the blank spaces. Do not attempt to edit the template itself, unless you are familiar with the coding. If you are familiar with the coding, please use the template sandbox first, before making any changes, as it will affect hundreds of pages.

{{WikiProject Tennis 
 |class= (NA, FA, A, GA, B, C, start or stub, etc.)
 |importance= (Top, High, Mid, Low or NA)
 |attention= (either "yes" or remove it)
 |needs-infobox= (either "yes" or remove it)
 |small= (either "yes" or remove it - only used when there are more than five banner templates on the page)

For a brand new article:

{{WikiProject Tennis|class=stub|importance=low|attention=yes|needs-infobox=yes}}

or with minimal syntax:

{{WikiProject Tennis|class=|importance=}}

Standard player banner: Bio above Sport

{{WPBiography|class=stub|sports-work-group=yes|sports-priority=low|listas=last, first|living=yes/no}}
{{WikiProject Tennis|class=stub|importance=low|attention=yes|needs-infobox=yes}}

Optional parameters

  • attention – set |attention=yes if the article needs immediate attention from experienced editors. Use only if another parameter does not cover the need for attention; this should be used sparingly.
  • class – see the project's quality scale for details.
  • importance – valid values are: top, high, mid, low, na (case-insensitive). See the project's importance scale for details.
  • listas – This parameter, which is the equivalent of the DEFAULTSORT sortkey that should be placed on all biographical articles, is a sortkey for the article talk page (e.g. for Fred Perry, use |listas=Perry, Fred so that the talk page will show up in the P's and not the F's of the various assessment and administrative categories). This is important because it is one source used by those who set DEFAULTSORT on the article; consider also setting the DEFAULTSORT for the article when setting this parameter. For more information about this, please see Wikipedia:Categorization of people#Ordering names in a category.
    It is not required if another WikiProject template on the same page has its own |listas= set, since it not only affects categories used by the banner in which it is set, but it also affects the sortkey of all other banners and templates.
  • needs-infobox – set |needs-infobox=yes if the article needs an infobox. Remember that infoboxes are not suitable for all articles, and can overwhelm short articles.
  • small – set |small=yes to display a small version of the template aligned along the right side of the page (as opposed to at the top). This parameter does not work as expected if the banner template is enclosed in {{WikiProject banner shell}} or any of its redirects.
  • auto – This parameter is for the use of bots and indicates that the article has been automatically rated:
    • |auto=length – based on the length of the article
    • |auto=inherit – because one or more other projects use this class
    • |auto=yes (or |auto=stub), in conjunction with |class=stub – as Stub-Class because it uses a stub template
  • category – set |category=no if, and only if, a banner is being used for demonstration or testing purposes, to prevent unnecessary or undesirable categorization. Otherwise, omit this parameter.
