This is the documentation page for Module:Sports table/WDL

Template:Module rating Template:Module rating This style for Lua-based Module:Sports table is meant to build group and league tables for competitions with a win-draw-loss format. Note that this module is used extensively, so test potential changes rigorously in the sandbox and please ensure consensus exists before implementing major changes. The rest of this documentation explains how to use this module with the WDL style in an article or template, check the table of contents for specific items.

Usage

Basic usage

In its simplest form only several parameters need to be used to build a table

In article

What you type <syntaxhighlight lang=moin>Lua error: expandTemplate: template "citation needed" does not exist.</syntaxhighlight>
What it looks like Lua error: expandTemplate: template "citation needed" does not exist.

The main command is the {{#invoke:Sports table|main|style=WDL}} statement which basically calls the module and enables you to set everything up. Then you list the positions of the teams as Template:Para, Template:Para, etc for however many teams you need in the table. You can use full team names there without spaces if you want, but using codes (as in the example) can make it easier. For each team you now define the wins, draws, losses, goals for and goals against by using Template:Para, Template:Para, Template:Para, Template:Para and Template:Para respectively (with TTT replaced by the team code). If you do not define these numbers, it is automatically assumed to be 0. It is good practice though to include them anyway and to align the columns using appropriate spaces (as in the example), so the code is easy to read. The last step now is to define the Template:Para parameters which determine what name is shown in the table, you can use wiki markup and templates in here as well. See #Dating to see how to change the update date.

The Template:Para parameter is automatically forwarded from a template call (see #Team highlighting and partial table); the Template:Para is automatically forwarded to truncated tables, (see #Appearance); the Template:Para is automatically forwarded to control match result visibility, see #Matches.

In template

Using this module in template is now deprecated per this discussion.

Customization

Several things can be customized in these tables

Points, wins or percentage

By default teams are ranked by points, which can be adjusted as follows:

What you type <syntaxhighlight lang=moin>Lua error: expandTemplate: template "citation needed" does not exist.</syntaxhighlight>
What it looks like Lua error: expandTemplate: template "citation needed" does not exist.

As a default a win is worth 3 points, a draw 1 point and a loss 0 points, these values can be overwritten to what you need by Template:Para, Template:Para and Template:Para. Teams can also start the season with bonus or penalty points, this can be included by using Template:Para for that specific team.

Alternatively teams can also be ranked by wins (set Template:Para or Template:Para respectively)

To order the points column before the played column, use Template:Para. To order the percentage column before the played column, use Template:Para.

Header options (points for/against and custom other headers)

What you type <syntaxhighlight lang=moin>Lua error: expandTemplate: template "citation needed" does not exist.</syntaxhighlight>
What it looks like Lua error: expandTemplate: template "citation needed" does not exist.

For sports with points for and against rather than goals, setting Template:Para switches the for, against and difference columns to using points instead. The wording of the D (draw) column can be adjusted using Template:Para and the wording of the Team column can be adjusted using Template:Para. Template:Para removes these columns completely.

The wording of the Grp (group) column can be adjusted using Template:Para in the same way as the draw header.

Order of losses and draws

What you type <syntaxhighlight lang=moin>Lua error: expandTemplate: template "citation needed" does not exist.</syntaxhighlight>
What it looks like Lua error: expandTemplate: template "citation needed" does not exist.

As a default draws are listed before losses. To list losses first, use Template:Para.

Goal ratio/goal average

What you type <syntaxhighlight lang=moin>Lua error: expandTemplate: template "citation needed" does not exist.</syntaxhighlight>
What it looks like Lua error: expandTemplate: template "citation needed" does not exist.

Using Template:Para use goal ratio instead of goal differential. To change the heading to goal average, use Template:Para instead.

Goal percentage

What you type <syntaxhighlight lang=moin>Lua error: expandTemplate: template "citation needed" does not exist.</syntaxhighlight>
What it looks like Lua error: expandTemplate: template "citation needed" does not exist.

Using Template:Para use goal percentage instead of goal differential.

Rules for classification: 1) points; 2) goal difference; 3) number of goals scored.

The footer information can be customized (although notes and status will be inserted automatically if they are called; see XXX and YYY). The update date is set by Template:Para, see below for details. If no source is given a citation-needed tag is shown, Template:Para can provide an actual link. The classification results can be shown with Template:Para, either directly or as a wikilink to a tie-breaker rules section. Using Template:Para suppresses the classification rules (this should only be used in template calls when multiple groups are summarized on a page and the rules are listed elsewhere on that page).

Dating

The default description is match(es), this can be changed by calling Template:Para for any other term.

Active season

{{#invoke:Sports table|main|style=WDL

When the season is active, the footer should include the date of the last match played that is included in the table. This can be achieved by setting Template:Para.

Completed season
What you type
{{#invoke:Sports table|main|style=WDL
|update=complete
}}

Before any games are played, the date of the first game should be indicated by using Template:Para and setting the start date by Template:Para.

Stacking

Using Template:Para makes the table smaller, which may lead to undesired width and linebreaks in the footer that can be fixed with parameter Template:Para. By setting Template:Para (or y, t, true or 1 or upper case variant of those) every new information, such as "source" and statuses, is displayed on a new row.

Only the position, team, matches and points columns can be displayed by defining Template:Para (or y, t, true or 1 or upper case variant of those); Template:Para suppresses the classification rules only (this should only be used in template calls when multiple groups are summarized on a page and the rules are listed elsewhere on that page).

A line can be added between section of the table (if desired) by adding Template:Para with N the position below which the bar should be shown. (Note that this bar will not be shown for the bottom position in the table).

A custom width of the team column can be set by Template:Para, for example when multiple groups exist within one tournament and you want to force the same width on all groups.

The position column header can be customized by Template:Para and the position labels by Template:Para for each team.

When multiple a table compares teams from multiple groups, the group can also be listed by setting Template:Para (or y, t, true or 1 or upper case variant of those) and using Template:Para to indicate what teams comes from what group. The group column header can be customized by Template:Para, for example Template:Para.

Team highlighting and partial table

What you type
{{#invoke:Sports table|main|style=WDL

What it looks like Lua error: expandTemplate: template "citation needed" does not exist.

When using a table on a team (season) page, you might want to highlight the team (and possibly only show part of the table), especially after a template call to a long league table. Team TTT is highlighted by Template:Para. A limited part of the table is shown by Template:Para, with the number indicating the number of position to show (if this is an even number, and it is in the middle of the table, then this number will be rounded up to the next odd number to show symmetry above and below).

A table can also start at position N, by using Template:Para in the module call.

Results and status

The result of the table rankings can be indicated by a coloured bar and text indicating the result. The header of this column is defined by Template:Para with predefined values of Q, QR, P, PQR, PR and R (indicating various combinations of promotion, qualification and relegation), any other entry than these exact codes will print as that entry in the column header. With N the position Template:Para declares the codes (or words if you want that instead) for the results column. Now when RRR is the results column, the colours are defined by Template:Para. The colours green1, green2, green3, green4, blue1, blue2, blue3, blue4, yellow1, yellow2, yellow3, yellow4, red1, red2, red3, red4, black1, black2, black3 and black4 are predefined and should be used preferentially per consensus on WT:FOOTY (you can use either html colours, or RGB colour codes instead if you must [this is not recommended though, because it might violate WP:COLOR]). The text in the results column is now give by Template:Para, which can (and should) link to the relevant competition articles.

Consensus is also to use the colours in the following way: Green should be used for the top-level positive event (promotion, qualification, advancing to next round), blue for the second-level positive events (promotion play-offs when direct promotion exists, play-offs when direct qualification exist, secondary continental tournament), red for bottom-level negative events (relegation) and yellow for other level events. In addition, lower level colours should be used when teams qualify for different rounds (with lower levels corresponding to entry in lower rounds [green1 first, then green2, etc].) Black should be used when teams do not play a full season and their results are expunged or void. This consensus exists to have a uniform table appearance across Wikipedia. In addition, some wikiprojects have more detailed guidelines:

Colour options
Green green1 green2 green3 green4
Blue blue1 blue2 blue3 blue4
Yellow yellow1 yellow2 yellow3 yellow4
Red red1 red2 red3 red4
Black black1 black2 black3 black4
Orange orange1 orange2 White white1

The promotion/qualification/relegation status of a team can be indicated by Template:Para with the letters indicated above (although only the ones in use for this style are shown below the table). The letters will appear next to the team in the order given. Whichever letters are called out in the table will automatically be explained alphabetically in the footer.

These letters can be used for all scenarios as exemplified by the following group phase example with 4 teams that play 3 matches where the first advances directly, the second team will go to play-offs and the remaining two teams are eliminated:

  • Teams start out without status letter
  • Teams that get eliminated get status (E)
  • Teams that can still finish worse than second (and might be eliminated) will remain without status
  • Teams that will finish at least second will get status (T)
  • Teams that will finish for sure second will get status (Q)
  • Teams that will finish for sure first will get status (A)

If these scenarios are not sufficient, some style have wild letters L (marked with a question mark in the overview). They should be accompanied by Template:Para to indicate a non-standard status.

Most styles allow for these letter to be placed after the team name or before, set Template:Para or Template:Para respectively, the default value can differ and its use differs between sports or regions.

When notes are present, they are automatically added to the footer. The following notes are available for teams with Template:Para for a note for a team, when this note is a team code with a defined notes, they will share the note. Results can have notes with Template:Para and the result header can have a note with Template:Para. Head-to-head result tiebreakers are listed in the points column and can be inserted with Template:Para, which can be shared between teams as with all-purpose notes.

The match list can be added by displayed by defining Template:Para (or y, t, true or 1 or upper case variant of those). The column headers for the match results are defined by Template:Para for team TTT. The results for the game TTT vs. SSS can now be input by Template:Para. Future games can be listed with their date (possibly between small tags) or they can be left blank. (Note that this calls Module:Sports results to build the match table.) A note can be added to a result using Template:Para, this note can be shared with team TTT note by setting Template:Para when Template:Para is set. The width of the match columns can be customized by setting Template:Para to the desired width.
