This is the {{editnotice load}} template.

This template is normally only used by the system, it is the editnotice loader used in Commons. It displays the editnotices and the links to them, at the top of pages when editing pages.

Technical details[edit]

This template loads and displays the namespace notice. It also calls the sub-template {{editnotice load/core}}. That sub-template handles the loading of the group and page notices and the links to them. This template does parameter preprocessing, thus simplifying the code.

This template is placed in the main MediaWiki namespace notices named MediaWiki:Editnotice-0, MediaWiki:Editnotice-1 and so on. See Help:Namespaces for the full list of namespace numbers. Therefore this template needs no parameter.

View source or edit[edit]

The editnotices are also displayed when a user "views the source" of a protected page. (When a non-admin tries to edit a fully protected page, or when an IP-user tries to edit a semi or fully protected page.) The group and page notices are displayed, but not the namespace notices.

Most editnotices have useful information even when just viewing the source of a protected page, but in some cases we want to display different information to users who are just viewing the source of the page. This template feeds "notice action = view" to the editnotices it loads when in view mode. This can be used inside the editnotices like this:

{{#ifeq: {{{notice action|}}} | view
| <!--A non-admin is "viewing the source" of a protected page-->
| <!--A user with sufficient rights is editing the page-->
}}
