Template documentation (for the template shown above, sometimes hidden or invisible)


The templates P1, P2 and P3 simply return the first, second and third unnamed input parameter respectively. For example:

  • {{P1|foo|bar|baz}} returns foo
  • {{P2|foo|bar|baz}} returns bar
  • {{P3|foo|bar|baz}} returns Template:P3

These templates can be used inside other templates as an alternative to the Template:Pf parser function, to switch between outputs based on whether the input is "1", "2" or "3":

  • {{P{{{1}}}|output if 1|output if 2|output if 3}}

Using {{#switch}}, this syntax is equivalent to

except that the parser function strips whitespace between parameters whereas the templates don't.
