Usage[edit]

This helper template is used to determine if the status parameter in the {{VIC}} and {{VIC-thumb}} templates used for the display of Valued images candidates is set to a valid value. The template is called using the status as the first argument and returns "1" if the status is valid and "" (empty string) if not. Thus, when used in conjunction with #if, the first clause will be rendered if the status is valid, and the second if it is not valid:

{{#if:{{VIC-is-valid-status|{{{status}}}}}
  |Do what you intend to do as the status is valid
  |Indicate to the user that the status field is wrong}}

Valid values of the status parameter[edit]

The status parameter is case-sensitive. Valid valued are

  • nominated
  • supported
  • discussed
  • opposed
  • promoted
  • declined
  • withdrawn
  • undecided
