Usage instructions

Add {{Icons}} to the top of the article page.


As standard, order the template's fields like so:

{{Icons|good|featured|''HC WIKI LINK''}}

Although the template {{Eras}} can be used too, it won't automatically generate the protection icons if and when an article is protected. Instead, they'll have to be inserted manually every time an article is protected. For this reason, {{Icons}} is preferred

Template:Eraicon defines the following arguments that may be used (all are case-insensitive):


  • real - Real-world articles
  • featured - Featured articles
  • good - Good articles

Protection specifications

  • fprot - Articles fully protected against editing and/or moving
  • sprot - Articles semi-protected against editing and/or moving
  • mprot - Articles fully protected against moving only
