[Edit] [Purge] Template-info.svg Template documentation

This template inserts the specified date or date range formatted for human readability.

This template is intended to be used in space-constrained contexts where the year is already obvious to the reader. Date ranges are displayed in a compact form suitable for use in tables. Years are omitted unless the date range spans a new year.

Usage

{{Event date|start|end|lang=xx}}

Parameters:

|start = 
The start date, or the current date if omitted.
|end = 
The end date, or the start date if omitted.
|lang = 
(Optional) The ISO 639 language code of the outputted date, or the page's current language (as determined by {{Langcode}} if omitted.
|raw = 
(Optional) If set, only the date text is outputted and microformats are omitted. Set this parameter if the output is used as input to another module or part of a page name.

|start = and |end = may be relative or absolute timestamps. If only the day and month are specified, the template assumes the current year as of the time the page is loaded – not necessarily the year that the template was used. So you might as well specify a full date including the year. Acceptable timestamp formats are described in the ParserFunctions extension's documentation.

If |end = is set to an earlier date than |start =, an error is thrown.

Microformats

Unless |raw = is set, this template also inserts invisible microformats for the date or date range (in standard ISO 8601 format YYYY-MM-DD), usable by external parsers (such as pin13.net/mf2 for parsing Template:Calendar and generate JSON data) for creating custom calendars.

No indication of time is given: as the default time is at start of the day (at 00:00 UTC), the second date given in date ranges will be converted in the generated microformat at start of the following day (at 00:00 UTC).
