Converted to SVG.svg
All images in this gallery could be re-created using vector graphics as SVG files. This has several advantages; see Commons:Media for cleanup for more information. If an SVG form of this image is available, please upload it and afterwards replace this template with {{vector version available|new image name}}.

This documentation is transcluded from Template:Convert to SVG/doc.

Used to tag images which should be converted to SVG.

The template automatically sets the following categories: Within the main category Category:Images for cleanup either the subcategory Category:Images that should use vector graphics or (for files of the type “JPG”) its subcategory Category:JPG images that should use vector graphics will be used; for JPG files also the tag {{BadJPEG}} will be set automatically.

The type of the image (such as “flag”, see table below) should be given as a parameter, to add the image to an appropriate sub-category (e.g. Category:Flag images that should use vector graphics). If an invalid value is specified the image defaults to “Category:Other images that should use vector graphics”.

Any other parameter value xxxx not mentioned above will cause:

Pictogram voting info.svg Note This scheme might still need some work. Feel free to improve the definition of the respective category types to make them more precise and/or clearer.

You can use a user-script with the following code (the first highlighted line is optional and can be customized). Simply paste it into your common.js (or other MediaWiki skin related) JavaScript page. You can also edit this (script page) per user-preferences:

var convertToSVGTypes = "meteorology, road sign";
importScript('User:Perhelion/fixconverttosvg.js');

If reasonable please notify the uploader(s) by placing the following code on their talk page:

{{subst:SVG/notify|Filename.ext}}

TemplateData

TemplateData is a way to store information about template parameters (the description of those and of the whole template) for both humans and machines. It is used by VisualEditor and possibly other tools like Upload Wizard.


Existing template documentation
At Wikimedia Commons, it is recommended to use {{TemplateBox}} with either ‎useTemplateData=1 or ‎useTemplateData=only on the ‎/doc subpage and transcluding it with {{Documentation}} into the template. ‎<nowiki>-tags can be wrapped around the arguments, if required, to avoid templates being expanded.

Newly created template documentation and imports
Another option, especially for imported templates, or for users with JSON experience, is placing raw ‎<templatedata>-tags into the Wikitext of the template, as described in various Wikipediae.

Discussion
There is an ongoing discussion about that matter. Feel invited to comment if you are experienced in either way, your time permits and if you like to share your opinion or to make a suggestion.
