[edit] [purge] Template-info.svg Template documentation

This template implements a small box which explains the basics about a specific key.

It should be used on every page of the Key:*-namespace!

Currently it also includes the Template:Languages.

For pages in the Tag:*-namespace, see Template:ValueDescription.

How to use this template

Include the template code on top of every Key:*-page:

{{KeyDescription
| key          = keyname
| image        = File:imagename.png
| image:desc   = description of the image
| description  = short description
| website      = if the key forms part of a URL, link to the parent website 
| url_pattern  = if the key forms part of a URL, the pattern of the URL in the form http://example.com/stem/[value]
| group        = group name
| onNode       = yes/no
| onWay        = yes/no
| onClosedWay  = yes/no
| onArea       = yes/no
| onRelation   = yes/no
| combination  = useful tag to combine with
| implies      = tags implied by this key
| seeAlso      = item cross-references
| status       = Approved
| lang         = en
}}

Replace the parts behind the = with something that fits your need.

  • key= this is the name of your key in lower-case letters for example: key=highway
  • image= name of a example image that describes your key for example: image=Image:Motorway-photo.jpg Use image=undefined if it is not possible to photograph an example for the key (e.g. seasonal=*) which removes it from the category Category:Key pages with missing images.
  • description= short description of your key. try to keep it short but relevant. for example:description=The highway tag is the primary tag used for any kind of street or way.
  • group= Name of a group which this key belongs to. Used as a link to a higher level of wiki.
  • onNode= either yes or no describe on which element your key can be used
  • onWay= either yes or no describe on which element your key can be used
  • onClosedWay= either yes or no describe on which element your key can be used
  • onArea= either yes or no describe on which element your key can be used
  • onRelation= either yes or no describe on which element your key can be used
  • combination= give hints about tags which are good to combine with this one
  • implies= tags implied by this key. I.e. highway=* implies access=yes

  • lang= 2 letter country code for example DE, EN, NL, TR, ...
  • status= state of approval process of this key (Approved / Rejected / Voting / Proposed / Draft / Abandoned / In use / Defacto)

Examples

Translating a existing page

If you like to translate a page into your language you just need to create a page for it for example AR:Key:highway. Once the page exist the link to this side will be seen on every *:Key:highway site.

Do not edit this template to add the link to your translated page!
