Usage

When you create or find a new page within the scope of WikiProject COVID-19 please add any of the following to the top of its talk page:
{{WikiProject COVID-19 |class= |importance= }}
{{WikiProject COVID-19 |class= |importance= |needs-infobox= |needs-photo= |imagedetails= |in= |in2= |in3= |unref= |attention= |small= |listas= }}
{{WikiProject COVID-19
|class         = 
|importance    = 
|needs-infobox = 
|needs-photo   = 
 |imagedetails = 
 |in           = 
 |in2          = 
 |in3          = 
|unref         = 
|attention     = 
|small         = 
|listas        = 
}}
Unused parameters may be omitted. This template automatically adds articles to Category:WikiProject COVID-19 articles.

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 – valid values are listed in the custom class mask. 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 Italo De Zan, use |listas=De Zan, Italo so that the talk page will show up in the D's and not the I'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.
  • needs-photo – set |needs-photo=yes to request that an image or images be included in the page to improve its quality.
    • This parameter populates Category:Wikipedia requested images of COVID-19-related topics.
    • imagedetails (appears only if |needs-photo=yes is set) – Additional details to describe the image that is requested.
    • in – if |needs-photo=yes is set, |in=place also adds the page to a further category, Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in place.
    • in2 and in3 are similar, allowing |in2=place2 and |in3=place3 for Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in place2 and Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in place3.
  • 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.
  • unref – set |unref=yes if the page lacks sufficient references and/or adequate inline citations.
  • 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.

Aliases

  • The parameters |infobox-requested=, |infobox-needed=, |infobox= and |infoboxneeded= are recognised as aliases for |needs-infobox=. If more than one is present, the order of precedence, from highest to lowest, is: |needs-infobox=|infobox-requested=|infobox-needed=|infobox=|infoboxneeded= . Parameters with lower precedence are ignored.
  • The parameters |needs-image=, |image-needed=, |photo-needed= and |image-requested= are recognised as aliases for |needs-photo=. If more than one is present, the order of precedence, from highest to lowest, is: |needs-photo=|needs-image=|image-needed=|photo-needed=|image-requested= . Parameters with lower precedence are ignored.
