Template documentation
This template is deprecated on MediaWiki. It was copied from en:Template:Dated maintenance category. It builds the complicated structure of w:Category:Articles containing potentially dated statements for enwiki that's too elaborate for MediaWiki, so on MediaWiki {{as of}} doesn't call this or {{DMCA}}.
Template:DMC redirects to Template:Dated maintenance category.

Usage[edit]

Syntax[edit]

  • Parameter 1: Default category name (without Category) - the category if there is no date, but also the stem of the category name when there is a date..
  • Parameter 2: Preposition (from, since, in, as of).
  • Parameter 3: Date (month year, e.g. July 2019. Usually the "date" parameter of the calling template {{{date|}}}.
  • Parameter 4: Category all the articles go in, dated or not (if there is one).
  • Parameter 5: Alternative default category, used when parameter 1 is right for forming the dated category, but the undated items need to go somewhere else.

Technical[edit]

The parameter onlyarticles ({{Dated maintenance category}} only) is used for template design, restricting the function of this template to article namespace (as in {{DMCA}} ).

Examples[edit]

Note[edit]

An incorrect date is any date which is not of the form July 2019, e.g. July 24, 2019, or june instead of June, or other spelling mistakes.

Entymology[edit]

DMCA stands for "dated maintenance category - articles". Similar templates exist for certain other namespaces or combinations. DMCA is a metatemplate with highly circumscribed use, and not intended to be "editor facing".
