[Edit] [Octicons-sync.svgpurge] Template-info.svg Template documentation

Displays a tag: key-value and (optionally) links to the corresponding wiki page.

Traditional format


{{TagValue|key|value linked|value displayed}}
{{TagValue|key||value without link}}

If the third argument is used, the link goes to the key page.

What you display What you type What you link
motorway {{TagValue|highway|motorway}} Tag:highway=motorway
type of the way {{tagValue|highway|motorway|''type of the way''}} Tag:highway=motorway
To force it to not link to the specific page, skip the second argument and put the text in the third or fourth argument like:
shelter {{TagValue|amenity||shelter}} Key:amenity#amenity-shelter
yes {{TagValue|bridge|||yes}} Key:bridge
ref number {{TagValue|ref|||''ref number''}} Key:ref

The main Key:name pages (using map features templates) need to be modified to work with this template in order to link them to anchors in these pages such as Key:name#value. For each value described, the matching row in tables listing and describing key values, and which starts with a leading line


must be changed (by ionserting an identifier suitable as HTML anchors) into:

|- id="name-value"

with the name and the value separated with -, and with spaces changed into _ (note that some values containing separators such as #, , or ; cannot be anchored with valid identifiers). E.g. :

|- id="amenity-ferry_terminal"
