Template:PeriodS

From LifeWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This template can be used to quickly and easily embed a link to the category of spaceships with a given period. For example,

The frobnozzle is a {{periodS|20}} [[c/2 orthogonal]] [[spaceship]].

becomes

The frobnozzle is a period 20 c/2 orthogonal spaceship.

(This is much more convenient than having to type the equivalent of

The frobnozzle is a [[period]] [[:Category:Spaceships with period 20|20]] [[c/2 orthogonal]] [[spaceship]].

everytime you want to link to a spaceship period category.)

The template takes two parameters, the first of which is the period and can be passed without a name or as period=. The second one is passed without a name and removes the "period" from the resulting text:

The first known spaceships of periods {{periodS|2|brief}} and {{periodS|3|brief}} were found in 1989.

becomes

The first known spaceships of periods 2 and 3 were found in 1989.
