Documentation Sub-page for Template:Text_CatStateOtherFreq

Scope of Use

Purpose

  • Template:Text_CatStateOtherFreq is designed to be a "text"-template which:
    • functions as the base upon which individual "...Frequencies" categories, and simpler "...Frequencies" categories-templates are built.
      • This creates a standardized presentation-style for the text displayed on all individual "...Frequencies" categories and all "...Frequencies" category-templates. Exceptions should be few.
    • naturally applies to state-, county-, and country-based "...Frequencies" categories
    • is also intended to be used to create "...Frequencies" categories that are not state-, county-, or country-based, such as top-level theme-based "...Frequencies" categories.

Directly Invoked By

  • Template:Text_CatStateOtherFreq should be directly invoked only by
    • simpler "...Frequencies" categories-templates, or
    • top-level theme-based "...Frequencies" categories, or
    • individual "...Frequencies" categories for which a simpler "...Frequencies" categories-template does not exist.

Not Intended For

  • Template:Text_CatStateOtherFreq should not be directly invoked by anything other than "...Frequencies" "categories" pages, or simpler "...Frequencies" "categories"-templates.

Parameters

Parameter Name Parameter Details
State Notes:
  • A value is Required
    This template's use is not limited to politically-defined "states". The parameter State can be assigned a theme-based value instead. See any of Category:Special Topics' sub-categories for example.
State2 Expected Value(s):
  • not specified (Default value)
  • specified with specific value
Notes:
  • When not specified, State value is used in the categories-list
  • When specified with a specific value, the specific value is used to override State in the categories-list, but not in the title.
    • State2's value should be the name of the State-category's primary parent, and should have a value very similar to State's value when possible.
StateParentNotFreq Expected Value(s):
  • not specified (Default value)
  • specified with no value
Notes:
  • When not specified, the word "Frequencies" is appended to the State (or State2 if used) value in the categories-list.
  • When specified with no value, the word "Frequencies" is NOT appended to the State (or State2 if used) value in the categories-list.
  • Please do not assign a specific value to this parameter.
Other Notes:
  • A value is Required unless BOTH HideOtherInTitle and HideOtherInList are utilized to hide the value of Other
Other2 Expected Value(s):
  • not specified (Default value)
  • specified with specific value
Notes:
  • When not specified, Other value is used in the categories-list
  • When specified with a specific value, the specific value is used to override Other in the categories-list, but not in the title.
  • Also, see notes about parameter HideOtherInList
OtherIsNotFreq Expected Value(s):
  • not specified (Default value)
  • specified with no value
Notes:
  • When not specified, the word "Frequencies" is appended to the Other (or Other2 if used) value in the title and in the categories-list.
  • When specified with no value, the word "Frequencies" is NOT appended to the Other (or Other2 if used) value in the title and in the categories-list.
  • With rare exception, Please do not assign a specific value to this parameter.
OtherFreqInState Expected Value(s):
  • not specified (Default value)
  • specified with a State-parameter related value. Examples:
    • OtherFreqInState=US {{{Agency}}} Frequencies in {{{State}}}|
    • OtherFreqInState=United States {{{MilBranch}}} Frequencies in {{{State}}}|
Notes:
  • This overrides the value displayed in the title and the page's example category-statement.
  • This does not influence the list of parent-categories.
  • Values for State and Other still should be assigned appropriately.
Country Expected Value(s):
  • not specified (Default value)
  • specified with specific value, followed by a non-breaking space (&nbsp;)
    • Example: Country=Canada&nbsp;|
Notes:
  • This allows a country-name to be assigned as the prefix to the Other (or Other2) value in the categories-list only. It does not influence the value of Other (or Other2) in the title.
  • When specified, the Country value is displayed in the categories-list immediately prior to the value of Other (or Other2).
  • When not specified, no value is displayed.
  • Also, see notes about parameter HideOtherInList
Parent3 Automatic Value(s):

Using values from parameters above, either:

  • State Other, or State2 Other, or State Other2, or State2 Other2
Notes:
  • Parent3's value is automatically created using the values of State (or State2 if used) and Other (or Other2 if used).
  • Parent3's value cannot be manually assigned by the Wiki-editor; but can be hidden using HideParent3 listed below.
Parent4 Expected Value(s):
  • not specified (Default value)
  • specified with specific value
Notes:
  • When specified, the Parent4 value is displayed in the categories-list.

Other={{{FreqParent|Wiki}}}|
HideOtherInTitle=|
HideParent3=|
MoreText={{{MoreText|}}}|
HideParent4=|
HideParent5=|
HideParent6=|
HideParent7=}}

How to invoke this template for a simpler US (Agency) Frequencies in (State) TEMPLATE

  • Template:Cat_USFedFreqInState is an example of a simpler category-template that is used to build (US Federal Government) agency-level "Frequencies" categories:
{{Text_CatStateOtherFreq|
OtherFreqInState=US {{{Agency}}} Frequencies in {{{State}}}|
Other={{{Agency}}}|
State={{{State}}}|
Other2=US {{{Agency}}}|
HideParent3=|
Parent4=US {{{Agency}}} in {{{State}}}|
HideParent5=|
HideParent6=|
HideParent7=}}

Result


How to invoke this template for a simpler United States (MilBranch) Frequencies in (State) TEMPLATE

  • Template:Cat_USMilFreqInState is an example of a simpler category-template that is used to build (United States Military) Branch-level "Frequencies" categories:
{{Text_CatStateOtherFreq|
OtherFreqInState=United States {{{MilBranch}}} Frequencies in {{{State}}}|
Other={{{MilBranch}}}|
State={{{State}}}|
Other2=United States {{{MilBranch}}}|
HideParent3=|
Parent4=United States {{{MilBranch}}} in {{{State}}}|
HideParent5=|
HideParent6=|
HideParent7=}}

Result


How to invoke this template for a (theme) frequencies CATEGORY

  • Category:Air_National_Guard_Frequencies is an example of a Theme-level "Frequencies" category:
{{Text_CatStateOtherFreq|
State=Air National Guard|
StateParentNotFreq=|
Other=United States Air Force|
HideOtherInTitle=|
HideParent3=|
Parent4=Military Aviation Frequencies|
HideParent5=|
HideParent6=|
HideParent7=|}}

Result


How to avoid common error(s) while invoking this template

  • Purpose: To avoid unintended spaces in parameter-values
    • Technique: Place the vertical bar at end of parameter-value, not at left-margin.


  • Purpose: To correctly assign no-value to a parameter
    • Technique: Place the vertical bar at end of parameter-value, not at left-margin.


  • Purpose: To avoid confusion with template's closing braces
    • Technique: Put "Hide..." parameters at end of template-call to help ensure the closing braces are used and not confused with the value of another parameter.


  • Example: Category:Air_National_Guard_Frequencies
    • The following template-code is correct, because
    1. The vertical-bar ends immediately after each parameter-value, or immediately after an equal-sign thereby indicating "no value":
    2. The template's closing pair of braces immediately follows the last parameter-value and is not on a separate line where it could become confusing and orphaned or even deleted during later editing.
    3. The "HideParent..." parameters are placed at the end and immediately followed by the template's closing braces. This becomes more apparent when using parameters "Articles" and "MoreText".
{{Text_CatStateOtherFreq|
State=Air National Guard|
StateParentNotFreq=|
Other=United States Air Force|
HideOtherInTitle=|
HideParent3=|
Parent4=Military Aviation Frequencies|
HideParent5=|
HideParent6=|
HideParent7=}}
  • The following template-code is not correct, because it introduces unintended spaces and risks the closing braces becoming orphaned, lost, or deleted during later editing, especially if values are assigned later to parameters "Articles" and/or "MoreText":
{{Text_CatStateOtherFreq
|State=Air National Guard
|StateParentNotFreq=
|Other=United States Air Force
|HideOtherInTitle=
|HideParent3=
|Parent4=Military Aviation Frequencies
|HideParent5=
|HideParent6=
|HideParent7=
}}
