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.

Notes and examples

Notice License Review
The files from Pixabay need license review. If you aren't an Administrator or a License reviewer, add the tag with the ID (and the optional vid parameter if apply):
{{Pixabay|<id>|vid}}

If you're an Administrator or a License reviewer, replace the {{Pixabay}} tag with the shortcut:

{{subst:PBLR|<id>|vid}}

For adding Pixabay users into the author field you can use a shorter address form without language related part:

[https://pixabay.com/users/example-user/ Example user].

In fact, you can always remove the language part. Pixabay will show something according to your browser settings. This behaviour is used in template {{Pixabay}}.

Files with template, but missing the ID, are added to category Files from Pixabay without file-ID provided.
