Template:Lua Template:High-use

Module:Television episode short description extracts data from a television episode article's Template:Infobox television episode and creates a relevant short description based on the data available.

This module implements the {{Television episode short description}} template.


Parameter list

The parameter names use a corresponding parameter from Template:Infobox television episode to fill in the data. They are listed below.
