MediaWiki talk:Expand templates intro

Related MediaWiki messagesEdit

Below are the MediaWiki pages related to Special:ExpandTemplates (mw:Extension:ExpandTemplates). Defaults are not shown; they can be found at Special:Allmessages.

  • MediaWiki:expand_templates_intro (talk, backlinks, edit) containing "This [[Help:Special page|special page]] takes some text and expands all [[Help:Template|template]]s in it recursively. It also expands [[mw:Help:Extension:ParserFunctions|parser functions]] like <code><nowiki>{{#if:...}}</nowiki></code>, and [[mw:Help:Magic_words#Variables|variables]] like <code><nowiki>{{CURRENTDAY}}</nowiki></code>&mdash;in fact pretty much everything in double-braces. It does this by calling the relevant parser stage from MediaWiki itself. One can't supply values for template parameters (e.g. <code><nowiki>{{{1}}}</nowiki></code>)."

Protected edit request on 17 January 2019Edit

I request that the following lines be removed from the start of the interface page:

<div class="editsection noprint editlink plainlinksneverexpand" align="right" style="float: right; margin-left: 5px;"><small>[{{fullurl:MediaWiki talk:Expand templates intro|action=edit{{#if:|&section={{{section}}}}}}} edit{{#if:| {{{2}}}}}]</small></div>

Having an "edit" link is abnormal, especially since it also shows up at the special page (Special:ExpandTemplates) and thus I think it should be removed. Thanks,
