This documentation is transcluded from Template:Italic title/doc.


This template italicizes page titles, for example categories named after a ship. Page titles cannot contain wiki-formatting, such as '', so cannot be italicized in the normal way. Instead, place this template in the page, normally at the very top. It will then have the following effect:

  • Titles with no parentheses () are fully italicised except the namespace:
    • FooFoo
    • Category:FooCategory:Foo
  • Titles which contain parentheses are italicised before the first opening parenthesis:
    • Foo (bar)Foo (bar)
    • Category:Foo (bar)Category:Foo (bar)
  • Italicization can be forced on parenthesized text with the |all=yes parameter.

Usage[edit]

Basic usage

{{italic title}}

All parameters

{{italic title|string=text in title|all=yes}}

Parameters[edit]

  • all: if this is set to "yes", text in parentheses is italicized.
  • string: instead of italicizing the whole title, italicize only some specific text. For example, using |string=Ark Royal on the page "Category:HMS Ark Royal (91)" would result in "Category:HMS Ark Royal (91)".

Technical[edit]

This template uses the magic word DISPLAYTITLE. It only affects how the name is displayed at top of the page and not elsewhere like in category listings or search results.
