Basic use

(Note: In the following examples, ellipses (groups of three dots, e.g. ...) indicate where parameters have been omitted.)

{{tlx|Template|first parameter|second parameter|third|...|tenth}} produces: {{Template|first parameter|second parameter|third|...|tenth}}

Where parameters might contain one or more equals-signs ("="), replace each equals-sign with {{=}}:

{{tlx|Template|first{{=}}something|second|third{{=}}something|...|tenth}} produces: {{Template|first=something|second|third=something|...|tenth}}

For more than ten parameters, possibly also containing equals-signs, use <nowiki> thus:

{{tlx|Template|<nowiki>''first''|''second''|''third=something''|...|''999th''</nowiki>}} produces: {{Template|first|second|third=something|...|999th}}

Purpose and naming

Mnemonically, "[t]emplate [l]ink e[x]panded" (after {{tl}}, "[t]emplate [l]ink").

This template allows an example of calling a template, accompanied by one or more parameters, to be displayed without also causing the template to be called.


  • If the only parameter supplied is {{{1}}}, i.e. a template's name, {{tlx}}'s output is the same as {{tl}} – i.e. a link within braces – but in a monospaced font:
    • {{tl}} produces: {{tl}}
    • {{tlx}} produces: {{tl}}
{{tl}} will also not take nor display additional parameters.
Named parameters


Setting this parameter to any non-blank value will prefix the string subst:. This is useful to indicate when a template should be substituted. For example, {{tlx|Unsigned|subst=Y}} produces: {{subst:Unsigned}}.
