Template documentation


Usage[edit]

The template {{as of}} is used to mark potentially dated statements, and will add an article to the appropriate hidden sub-category of Category:Articles containing potentially dated statements. This allows editors to catalogue statements that may become dated over time. The date used for a given statement should be the current date (for currently valid statements) or the date on which the cited reference was produced (for example, when using census data). Unlike the {{update after}} template, {{as of}} does not require the editor to give a full date. This template should not be substituted.

Note: This template MUST NOT be used in infoboxes which emit a microformat, as its emitted date markup will conflict with that.

This template does not generate a visible hyperlink in text where it is used.

Syntax[edit]

The template can be used in the following forms:

{{As of|year}}
{{As of|year|month}}
{{As of|year|month|day}}

Please do not use {{As of|{{CURRENTYEAR}}|{{CURRENTMONTH}}}} or similar; that defeats the point of the template.

Several additional named parameters can also be used (see below).

Parameters[edit]

Required

  • year (first parameter) – must be in full numerical format (yyyy)

Optional

  • month (second parameter) – full, abbreviated or numerical formats supported (mm recommended)
  • day (third parameter) – numerical format only, not included in link (dd)

Examples[edit]

{{As of|2010}} – As of 2010
{{As of|2010|7}} – As of July 2010
{{As of|2010|7|5}} – As of 5 July 2010
