Template:Sandbox other
Template documentation​[​view​] [edit] [history] [purge]
This page is not a sandbox.
It should not be used for test editing. To experiment, please use the Wikipedia sandbox, your user sandbox, or the other sandboxes.
This template is used on approximately 175,000 pages.
To avoid major disruption and server load, any changes should be tested in the template's /sandbox or /testcases subpages, or in your own user subpage. The tested changes can be added to this page in a single edit. Consider discussing changes on the talk page before implementing them.
This template uses Lua:
This template allows to differentiate between regular Template:... and Template:.../sandbox pages. It is typically used to prevent a /sandbox page being categorised with their main page.
Also
when numbered /sandbox1
Any subpage
/sandboxANYTEXT
is considered a /sandbox. So this includes
/sandbox1
, /sandbox_2.
Also
/doc
A /doc subpage is also considered a /sandbox.
Usage
This template can be used on template documentation pages to ensure that any given template sandbox or template documentation does not populate its main template's category(ies).
This template has two unnamed parameters, |1= and |2=. Near the bottom of a /doc page where the categories are usually placed, install this template as follows:
{{Documentation subpage}} <!-- all /documentation code goes here --> <includeonly>{{sandbox other|| <!-- categories the main template should be in, but not the /sandbox: --> [[Category:(first category)]] [[Category:(second category)]] }}</includeonly>
  • Usage of an empty first parameter (two pipes together, ||, at the end of the first line of code above) essentially means |1=(do nothing) and will not allow the sandbox page to populate the listed categories.
  • Note that the closing template braces (}}) are placed just before the </includeonly> tag. This is the same as |2=(category comment and categories). In "long hand" it may appear as follows:
<includeonly>{{sandbox other|1=<!-- keep sandbox out of categories -->|2= <!-- Categories go below this line; interwikis go to Wikidata --> [[Category:(first category)]] [[Category:(second category)]] (more categories if needed) }}</includeonly>
