Template:Tocright

Description

This template is used to insert descriptions on template pages.

Syntax

Add <noinclude>{{documentation}}</noinclude> at the end of the template page.

Usage

On the Template page

This is the normal format when used:

TEMPLATE CODE<includeonly>Any categories to be inserted into articles by the template</includeonly><noinclude>
{{documentation}}</noinclude>

If your template is not a completed div or table, you may need to close the tags just before {{documentation}} is inserted (within the noinclude tags).

A line break right before {{documentation}} can also be useful as it helps prevent the documentation template "running into" previous code.

On the Template/doc page

Normally, you will want to write something like the following on the documentation page:

== Description ==
This template is used to do something.

== Syntax ==
Type <code>{{t|templatename}}</code> somewhere.

== Usage ==
A more indepth description of when, how this template is used.

== Samples ==
<code><nowiki>{{templatename|input}}</nowiki></code> 

results in...

{{templatename|input}}

== See Also ==
A list of all related links.

<includeonly>Any categories for the template itself</includeonly>
<noinclude>[[Category:Template documentation|{{PAGENAME}}]]</noinclude>

Use any or all of the above header sections. You may also add other header sections as required.

Note that the above example also uses the Template:T and Template:T/piece templates.
