{{tlg}} (abbreviating "[t]emplate [l]ink (with) [g]eneral (options)") is a generalised version of the {{tl}} ("template link") template. It can be used to replace or implement {{tl}} and related templates such as {{tlb}}, {{tlx}}, etc.

Parameters

Named

With the exception of alttext, {{tlg}}'s named parameters are toggles that are either omitted (default) or activated (by being assigned a value such as "on", "yes", "true", "include", etc.). They may be included in any order (see Examples below):

Examples

Note
On the source sister projects, en.wikipedia and Meta, X0, X1, X2, …, X9 are sandbox templates for experimentation on involved templates that need be in template space. An auto-cleansing software facility exists that might be used to duplicate the facility on other Sister projects.
