'''Magic words''' are strings of text that MediaWiki associates with a return value or function, such as time, site details, or page names. This page is about usage of standard magic words; for a technical reference, see {{Mediawiki|<tvar|manual-magic-words>Special:MyLanguage/Manual:Magic words</>|Manual:Magic words}}.

There are three general types of magic words:
 
There are three general types of magic words:
*'''[[#Behavior switches|Behavior switches]]''': these are uppercase words surrounded by double underscores, ''e.g.'' '''__FOO__'''
 
*'''[[#Variables|Variables]]''': these are uppercase words surrounded by double braces, ''e.g.'' '''<code><nowiki>{{FOO}}</nowiki></code>'''. As such, they look a lot like [[Help:Templates|templates]].
 
*'''[[#Parser functions|Parser functions]]''': these take parameters and are either of the form '''<code><nowiki>{{foo:...}}</nowiki></code>''' or '''<code><nowiki>{{#foo:...}}</nowiki></code>'''. See also {{mediawiki|Help:Extension:ParserFunctions}}.
 
  
Page-dependent magic words will affect or return data about the ''current'' page (by default), even if the word is added through a transcluded template or included system message.

* '''[[<tvar|bs>#Behavior switches</>|Behavior switches]]''': these are uppercase words surrounded by double underscores, ''e.g.'' '''__FOO__'''.
  
==Behavior switches==
+
<!--T:4-->
A behavior switch controls the layout or behavior of the page and can often be used to specify desired omissions and inclusions in the content.

* '''[[<tvar|var>#Variables</>|Variables]]''': these are uppercase words surrounded by double braces, ''e.g.'' '''<code><nowiki>{{FOO}}</nowiki></code>'''. As such, they look a lot like [[<tvar|help-templates>Special:MyLanguage/Help:Templates</>|templates]].

Variables and parser functions can use [[<tvar|manual-subst>Special:MyLanguage/Manual:subst</>|subst:]], just like templates. Page-dependent magic words will affect or return data about the ''current'' page (by default), even if the word is added through a transcluded template or included system message.</translate>

<translate>
Numbers returned by these variables normally contain separators (commas or spaces, depending on the local language), but can return raw numbers with the ":R" flag (for example, <code><nowiki>{{NUMBEROFPAGES}}</nowiki></code> &rarr; {{NUMBEROFPAGES}} and <code><nowiki>{{NUMBEROFPAGES:R}}</nowiki></code> &rarr; {{NUMBEROFPAGES:R}}). Use "|R" for magic words that require a parameter like PAGESINCATEGORY (for example <code><nowiki>{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Help}}</nowiki></code> and <code><nowiki>{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Help|R}}</nowiki></code>, or <code><nowiki>{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Help|subcats}}</nowiki></code> and <code><nowiki>{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Help|subcats|R}}</nowiki></code>). Also applicable to <code><nowiki>{{PAGESIZE:</nowiki>''page name''<nowiki>}}</nowiki></code> above.
 
  
The number magic words are formatted in the wiki content language. Since {{r|94680|1.19}}, it depends on the [[page content language]].

Takes an unformatted number (arab, no group separators and <code>.</code> as decimal separator) and outputs it in the localized digit script and formatted with decimal and decimal group separators, according to the wiki's default locale. <br />
 +
The <code><nowiki>|R</nowiki></code> parameter can be used to reverse the behavior, for use in mathematical situations: it's reliable and should be used only to deformat numbers which are known to be formatted exactly as formatnum formats them with the wiki's locale.</translate><br/>
 +
<translate><!--T:205-->
 +
The <code>NOSEP</code> ("no separators") parameter means that no group / decimal separators are changed; formatnum will only transform the digits themselves in languages which don't use the [[w:en:Hindu–Arabic numeral system|Hindu–Arabic numeral system]]. <code>NOSEP</code> can also prevent non-standard digit groupings you wouldn't expect.</translate>

If you really need to format (according the wiki's locale) a number in unknown input format, you could try and use <code>formatnum</code> two times (but not if it can have a decimal group, or its separator will be eaten or the number won't be formatted). Be aware that this is more a hack than a regular way to proceed, thus the output may be not reliable.</translate>

<languages /> Template:TOCRight Template:TNT <translate> Magic words are strings of text that MediaWiki associates with a return value or function, such as time, site details, or page names. This page is about usage of standard magic words; for a technical reference, see [[<tvar|manual-magic-words>Special:MyLanguage/Manual:Magic words</>]].

There are three general types of magic words:

  • [[<tvar|bs>#Behavior switches</>|Behavior switches]]: these are uppercase words surrounded by double underscores, e.g. __FOO__.
  • [[<tvar|var>#Variables</>|Variables]]: these are uppercase words surrounded by double braces, e.g. {{FOO}}. As such, they look a lot like [[<tvar|help-templates>Special:MyLanguage/Help:Templates</>|templates]].
  • [[<tvar|pfunc>#Parser functions</>|Parser functions]]: these take parameters and are either of the form {{foo:...}} or {{#foo:...}}. See also <tvar|help-ext-parser-functions>Template:Ll</>.

Variables and parser functions can use [[<tvar|manual-subst>Special:MyLanguage/Manual:subst</>|subst:]], just like templates. Page-dependent magic words will affect or return data about the current page (by default), even if the word is added through a transcluded template or included system message.</translate>

<translate>

Behavior switches

A behavior switch controls the layout or behavior of the page and can often be used to specify desired omissions and inclusions in the content.</translate>

<translate>

Word</translate>

<translate>

Description</translate>

<translate>

Versions</translate>

<translate>

[[<tvar|manual-toc>Special:MyLanguage/Manual:Table of contents</>|Table of contents]]</translate>

__NOTOC__ <translate>

Hides the [[<tvar|manual-toc>Special:MyLanguage/table of contents</>|table of contents]] (TOC).</translate>

__FORCETOC__ <translate>

Forces the table of contents to appear at its normal position (before the first header, overriding <tvar|notoc>__NOTOC__</>).</translate>

__TOC__ <translate>

Places a table of contents at the word's current position (overriding <tvar|notoc>__NOTOC__</>). If this is used multiple times, the table of contents will appear at the first word's position.</translate>

<translate>

Editing</translate>

__NOEDITSECTION__ <translate>

Hides the section edit links beside headings. This is especially useful, where a heading is created from within a template: the normal wiki section-edit would in this case edit the template code, which is normally counterintuitive to the user. If a template contains multiple headings, it may be necessary to add "<tvar|noeditsection>__NOEDITSECTION__</>" after each heading.</translate>

__NEWSECTIONLINK__ <translate>

Adds a link beside the "edit" tab for adding a new section on a non-talk page (see [[<tvar|meta-help-section>m:Special:MyLanguage/Help:Section#Adding a section at the end</>]]).</translate>

{{ Template:TNTN |version=1.7|compact=y|comment=and after}}
__NONEWSECTIONLINK__ <translate>

Removes the link beside the "edit" tab on pages in talk namespaces.</translate>

{{ Template:TNTN |version=1.15|compact=y|comment=and after|r=47522}}
<translate>

Categories</translate>

__NOGALLERY__ <translate>

Used on a category page, replaces thumbnails in the category view with normal links.</translate>

{{ Template:TNTN |version=1.7|compact=y|comment=and after}}
__HIDDENCAT__ <translate>

Used on a category page, hides the category from the lists of categories in its members and parent categories (there is an option in the [[<tvar|help-preferences>Special:MyLanguage/Help:Preferences</>|user preferences]] to show them).</translate>

{{ Template:TNTN |version=1.13|compact=y|comment=and after}}
<translate>

Language conversion</translate>

__NOCONTENTCONVERT__
__NOCC__
<translate>

On wikis with language variants, don't perform any content language conversion (character and phase) in article display; for example, only show Chinese (zh) instead of variants like zh_cn, zh_tw, zh_sg, or zh_hk.</translate>

__NOTITLECONVERT__

Variables

Variables return information about the current page, wiki, or date. Their syntax is similar to [[<tvar|help-templates>Special:MyLanguage/Help:Templates</>|templates]]. Variables marked as "[expensive]" are tracked by the software, and the number that can be included on a page is limited.

If a template name conflicts with a variable, the variable will be used (so to transclude the template Template:PAGENAME you would need to write <tvar|code>{{Template:</>PAGENAME<tvar|code-end>}}</>). In some cases, adding parameters will force the parser to invoke a template; for example, <tvar|tpl-currentdayname-code>{{CURRENTDAYNAME|x}}</> transcludes <tvar|tpl-currentdayname-result>Template:CURRENTDAYNAME</>, not the variable. </translate>

<translate>

Date and time

The following variables return the current date and time in UTC.

Due to MediaWiki and browser caching, these variables frequently show when the page was cached rather than the current time.

The date and time magic words are formatted in the wiki content language. Since 1.19, they depend on the [[<tvar|manual-pagelang>Special:MyLanguage/Manual:Language#page-content-lang</>|page content language]].</translate>

Statistics

Numbers returned by these variables normally contain separators (commas, dots or spaces, depending on the local language), but can return raw numbers with the ":R" flag (for example, <tvar|nop-code>{{NUMBEROFPAGES}}</> → <tvar|nop-result>437</> and <tvar|nop-r-code>{{NUMBEROFPAGES:R}}</> → <tvar|nop-r-result>437</>).

Use "|R" for magic words that require a parameter like PAGESINCATEGORY (for example <tvar|pic>{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Help}}</> and <tvar|pic-r>{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Help|R}}</>, or <tvar|pic-subcats>{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Help|subcats}}</> and <tvar|pic-subcats-r>{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Help|subcats|R}}</>).

<translate> The <tvar|basepagename>{{BASEPAGENAME}}</> and <tvar|subpagename>{{SUBPAGENAME}}</> magic words only work in namespaces that have subpages enabled. See <tvar|manual-wg-ns-with-subpages>$wgNamespacesWithSubpages</> for information on enabling subpages.

As of 1.15+, these can all take a parameter, allowing specification of the page to be operated on, instead of just the current page:

  • <tvar|code>{{PAGENAME:Template:Main Page}}</> → <tvar|result>Main Page</>
Warning Warning: Page titles containing certain characters, such as apostrophes ' or asterisks *, may produce unexpected results when handled with these magic words, e.g. <tvar

For example, if page name is "<tvar|pagename>L'Aquila</>", the following code will produce the string "<tvar|result>Numeric char encoding</>": </translate>

{{#switch:{{PAGENAME}}

Parser functions

Parser functions are very similar to variables, but take one or more parameters (technically, any magic word that takes a parameter is a parser function), and the name is sometimes prefixed with a hash to distinguish them from templates.

This page only describes parser functions that are integral to the MediaWiki software. Other parser functions may be added by MediaWiki extensions such as the <tvar|ext-pf>Template:Ll</>. For those see <tvar|help-ext-pf>Template:Ll</>.

Namespaces

<tvar|ns>{{ns:}}</> returns the current localized name for the [[<tvar|help-ns>Special:MyLanguage/Help:Namespace</>|namespace]] with that index, canonical name, or local alias. Thus <tvar|ns6>{{ns:6}}</>, <tvar|ns-file>{{ns:File}}</>, and <tvar|ns-img>{{ns:Image}}</> (an old name for the File namespace) all return "File". On a wiki where the content language is French, <tvar|ns-file-de>{{ns:Fichier}}</> is also valid, but <tvar|ns-file-incorrect>{{ns:Datei}}</> (the localisation of "File" in German) is not.

<tvar|nse>{{nse:}}</> is the equivalent encoded for MediaWiki URLs. It does the same, but it replaces spaces with underscores, making it usable in external links.</translate>

<translate>

Takes an unformatted number (arab, no group separators and . as decimal separator) and outputs it in the localized digit script and formatted with decimal and decimal group separators, according to the wiki's default locale.
The |R parameter can be used to reverse the behavior, for use in mathematical situations: it's reliable and should be used only to deformat numbers which are known to be formatted exactly as formatnum formats them with the wiki's locale.</translate>
<translate> The NOSEP ("no separators") parameter means that no group / decimal separators are changed; formatnum will only transform the digits themselves in languages which don't use the Hindu–Arabic numeral system. NOSEP can also prevent non-standard digit groupings you wouldn't expect.</translate>

Template:TNT <translate> Leading zeroes are not removed, you can use {{#expr:00001}} instead if you have <tvar|ext-pf>Template:Ll</> installed.</translate>

Template:TNT <translate> If you don't input numbers in the exact format required, don't expect any reliable output, especially on non-English wikis.</translate>


<translate> If you really need to format (according the wiki's locale) a number in unknown input format, you could try and use formatnum two times (but not if it can have a decimal group, or its separator will be eaten or the number won't be formatted). Be aware that this is more a hack than a regular way to proceed, thus the output may be not reliable.</translate>

<translate>

Formats an unlinked date based on user "date format" preference, and adds metadata tagging it as a formatted date. For logged-out users and those who have not set a date format in their preferences, dates can be given a default: mdy, dmy, ymd, ISO 8601 (all case sensitive). If only the month and day are given, only mdy and dmy are valid. If a format is not specified or is invalid, the input format is used as a default. If the supplied date is not recognized as a valid date (specifically, if it contains any metadata such as from a nested use of these or similar templates), it is rendered unchanged, and no (additional) metadata is generated.</translate>

Template:TNT<translate> Although the ISO 8601 standard requires that dates be in the Gregorian calendar, the ISO parameter in this function will still format dates that fall outside the usual Gregorian range (e.g. dates prior to 1583). Also, the magic word cannot properly convert between negative years (used with ISO 8601) and years BC or years BCE (used in general writing).</translate>

<translate>

Inserts a string of padding characters (character chosen in third parameter; default "0") of a specified length (second parameter) next to a chosen base character or variable (first parameter). The final digits or characters in the base replace the final characters in the padding; i.e. {{padleft:44|3|0}} produces 044. The padding string may be truncated if its length does not evenly divide the required number of characters.

Only the first character of the third parameter is used in versions up to 1.12, but by version 1.15 all the characters are used.

Bug (fixed in r45734): multibyte characters are interpreted as two characters, which can skew width. These also cannot be used as padding characters.</translate>

Localization

Here are the magic words which are used as main localisation tools. Other magic words will often depend on the wiki's locale and configuration or on the chosen language: see in particular [[<tvar|date>#Date and time</>|#Date and time]], [[<tvar|formatting>#Formatting</>|#Formatting]], [[<tvar|misc>#Miscellaneous</>|#Miscellaneous]]. More magic words are added by the <tvar|ext-translate>Template:Ll</>.

The usage of these magic words can be very complex, and the documentation is currently incomplete; there's some more info on PLURAL, GRAMMAR, GENDER.</translate>

Outputs the singular form (second parameter) if the first parameter is an expression equalling one; the plural form (third parameter) otherwise. Its functioning is [[<tvar|meta-help-magicwords>m:Special:MyLanguage/Help:Magic_words#Language-dependent_word_conversions</>|language-dependent]].
Some language codes (ab, av, ba, bxr, ce, crh_cyrl, cv, inh, koi, krc, kv, lbe, lez, mhr, mrj, myv, ru, tt_cyrl, tyv, udm, xal) used 3 plural forms (updated 01.2014):

Outputs the correct inflected form of the given word described by the inflection code after the colon ([[<tvar|meta-help-magicwords>m:Special:MyLanguage/Help:Magic_words#Language-dependent_word_conversions</>|language-dependent]]). Grammar transformations are used for inflected languages like Polish. See also <tvar|manual-wg-grammarform>$wgGrammarForms</>.</translate>

You may also use parameters with translations.
Parameters are designated in messages with: $1, $2, $3, etc.
