When you create or find a new page within the scope of WikiProject Netherlands please add any of the following to the top of its talk page:
{{WikiProject Netherlands |class= }}
{{WikiProject Netherlands |class= |needs-photo= |dyk= |muni= |muni-importance= |small= |listas= }}
{{WikiProject Netherlands
|class            = 
|needs-photo      = 
|dyk              = 
|muni             = 
 |muni-importance = 
|small            = 
|listas           = 
Unused parameters may be omitted.

Optional parameters

  • class – valid values are listed in the custom class mask. See the project's quality scale for details.
  • dyk – set |dyk=yes if the page is a Netherlands Did you know article.
  • listas – This parameter, which is the equivalent of the DEFAULTSORT sortkey that should be placed on all biographical articles, is a sortkey for the article talk page (e.g. for Klaas Carel Faber, use |listas=Faber, Klaas Carel so that the talk page will show up in the F's and not the K's of the various assessment and administrative categories; similarly, for topics with titles beginning with an article such as "the" or "a" - e.g. for The Hague Netherlands Temple, use |listas=Hague Netherlands Temple, The so that the talk page will show up in the H's). This is important because it is one source used by those who set DEFAULTSORT on the article; consider also setting the DEFAULTSORT for the article when setting this parameter. For more information about this, please see Wikipedia:Categorization of people#Ordering names in a category.
    It is not required if another WikiProject template on the same page has its own |listas= set, since it not only affects categories used by the banner in which it is set, but it also affects the sortkey of all other banners and templates.
  • muni – set |muni=yes if the article is supported by WikiProject Dutch municipalities.
  • needs-photo – set |needs-photo=yes to request that an image or images be included in the article to improve its quality.
  • small – set |small=yes to display a small version of the template aligned along the right side of the page (as opposed to at the top). This parameter does not work as expected if the banner template is enclosed in {{WikiProject banner shell}} or any of its redirects.
  • category – set |category=no if, and only if, a banner is being used for demonstration or testing purposes, to prevent unnecessary or undesirable categorization. Otherwise, omit this parameter.


  • The parameters |needs-image=, |image-needed=, |photo-needed= and |image-requested= are recognised as aliases for |needs-photo=. If more than one is present, the order of precedence, from highest to lowest, is: |needs-photo=|needs-image=|image-needed=|photo-needed=|image-requested= . Parameters with lower precedence are ignored.
