This is the {{tl2}} template.

{{tl2}} is similar to {{tl}}. Tl stands for Template link. {{tl2}} is a macro template used to display a template name as a link surrounded by braces, thus showing how the template name would be used in code. Its primary use is in instruction and documentation.

{{tl2}} differs from {{tl}} in that it displays with a wider, monospaced text style, like {{tlx}}, and also takes the named parameters 'sister=xx' and 'lang=ll', so that it may also be used to list and link to templates on other English and non-English language sister projects.

{{tlx}} displays with the same enhanced presentation, and in addition expands several 'placeholder' parameters to generate a sample template call.


  • {{Tl2|template name to display}} – local link, just like {{Tl|template name to display}}.
  • {{Tl2|sister=V|template name to display}} – displays a template on Wikiversity.
  • {{Tl2|lang=fr|sister=wikisource|template name to display}} – displays a template on the French Wikisource sister project.
