Scope of Use

Purpose

  • This template creates a direct link to a specific thread in the RR forums area


Directly Invoked By

  • Any time a discussion can be linked to a topic for better clarity and to provide a place for discussion
  • The wiki talk pages should not be used for this purpose, as not everyone is aware that they exist


Parameters

There are 3 parameters, two of which are pulled directly from the URL of the discussion thread

  • The name of the forum
  • The message number and identifier
  • You can then supply a more meaningful English name for the thread. You should use the actual name of the thread here


Examples

  • The horizontal lines below separate examples for clarity and do not appear when template is invoked.

*{{Thread|uniden-scanners|383938-sds200-hum-reports.html|SDS200 Hum Reports}}


This was derived from the following URL;

https://forums.radioreference.com/threads/sds200-hum-reports.383938/


How to invoke this template

In the above example, each parameter for the template is separated by a pipe symbol (|).

  • First, the name of the template
  • Next, the forum name is required. As it is no longer shown on the URL, you must get it from the forums display area. Note that if you are using a thread in a sub-forum, use the highest level (the parent) for that forum. The thread above comes from the Tech Support section of the Uniden Scanners forum.
  • The last token of the URL has the data required for the next portion. Follow these steps to reformat it;
    • Take the number at the very end and place it in front, followed with a dash.
    • Put the identifier '.html' at the very end.
  • The last part of the template is a free forum area for a description. Note that the template will hard code 'Thread' at the very end.
