Template:High use

This module is for generating various english variant notice templates.

Automatically generates "variant" from title template that invokes it (e.g invoking from "Template:American English" gives "American English" as variant).

All templates using this support a Template:Para parameter for oxford spelling and Template:Para automatically.


  • small, form, and including  – unnecessary to use in templates as grabbed when passed in from talk pages
  • id – the HTML id used in editnotices; "editnotice" is automatically appended
  • image – name of file to be used as an icon, without the File: prefix.
  • variant – defaults to the template name; the variant of English, which should be a Wikipedia article.
  • spelling examples –gives spelling examples in parentheses
  • compare –comparison variants of english
  • text – custom text, set only if required to be different from the default
  • doc if set to no, will not load the automatic documentation at Template:English variant notice/documentation
  • editnotice_cat if set to yes, categorizes in edit notice category
  • nocat disables documentation if set to true
  • size set the size of the image (example: Template:Para)
