{{tlx|template|first parameter|second|third|...}}{{template|first parameter|second|third|fourth|...}}

Purpose and naming: Mnemonically 'Template list expanded'... after {{tl}} Template list'

  • This template takes another template-name and some associated pipe-tricked (numbered) parameters (or 'pass parameters'), and aggregates them into an 'example demonstration' of how the template-name template might be used. It's primary use is in instruction and documentation such as this passage.
  • Up to five pass parameters (numbered) for the specified template are displayed as 'placeholders', and more parameters are shown as "|...", for details see the this talk page.

  • If given no additional parameters except  'template name' ({{{1}}}),  it presents the same as the similar {{Tl}} macro template -- a blue link nested in curly-braces-- the same as a user would apply the template without parameters, but with a noticably clearer font and spacing on most modern browsers.
  • {{tl|Tl}} display compared to {{tlx|Tl}}: (Tl: {{Tlx}} versus Tlx: {{tl}})
  • Comparatively, {{tl}} will not take or display additional parameters, and for minor technical reasons, may preferred for mere listing and referencing in long pages involving a lot of template expansions1.
  • Additionally, Tlx will take a 'named' parameter 'SISTER' to link interwiki to other sister projects such as one of these examples: '|SISTER=W:', 'Tlx|SISTER=M:', 'Tlx|SISTER=Q:', 'Tlx|SISTER=S:', allowing documentation or discourse about a template across interwiki boundaries. Small 'front end' Shell or convience templates {{tlxw}} and {{tlxm}} are typing-aid templates available at Meta for automatic substitution in discussions about templates on Wikipedia or Meta.

This usage also applies to interwiki capable template variations
  1. {{Tlxc}} -- which links to templates on Wikimedia Commons (The Commons).
  2. {{Tlxm}} -- which links to templates on Meta
  3. {{Tlxw}} -- which links to templates on Wikipedia

Documentation[mèzi]

{{Tlx}} is a generalization of {{tl|x}}, {{tlp|x|y}}, etcetera with arguably better readable output. This depends on the browser, but too narrow uses of "{", "|", "}" in conjunction with links can be hard to read.
