The template link template is a simple macro template used to display a template name as a link surrounded by braces, thus showing how the template name would be used in code. Its primary use is in instruction and documentation. A short example is:

{{tl|Example}}
which generates
{{Example}}

<templatedata>{ "description": "This template displays a template name as a link surrounded by braces, thus showing how the template name would be used in code. Its primary use is in instruction and documentation.", "params": {

 "1": {
   "label": "template name",
   "description": "the template name without the namespace prefix “Template:”, which is added automatically",
   "type": "line",
   "required": true
 }

}}</templatedata>

More complex variations are described below.

Example

Code Result Notes
{{tl|Void}} {{Void}} Standard usage
{{tls|Void}} {{subst:Example}} For templates that should be substituted
{{tl2|X1}} {{X1}} This formats the link to show how it would look in code
{{tl2|SISTER=M:|3x}} {{3x}} Same as above, for templates on another Wikimedia project (such as meta)
{{tl2|SISTER=wikibooks|LANG=de:|WP}} {{WP}} For templates on another language project
{{tl|1==)}} {{=)}} Use the format {{tl|1=templatename}} if the template contains template coding characters such as {{=)}} or {{!}}
