Template documentation

This is the WikiProject banner template used by WikiProject Stub sorting to keep track of articles within its scope.

Basic usage

Place this on the talk page of relevant articles:
{{WikiProject Stub sorting }}

Full usage

It is usual to remove any unused parameters from the template call.
{{WikiProject Stub sorting
 |listas=
}}

Parameters

  • 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 Jack Harkness, use |listas=Harkness, Jack so that the talk page will show up in the H's and not the J's of the various assessment and administrative categories). 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.
  • 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.

Example

{{WikiProject Stub sorting |listas=Harkness, Jack }} produces
