Example[edit source]

⧼seealso⧽: Template:Autoarchive resolved section/usertalksetup

The following example is derived from the archiving setup of dewiki’s Wikipedia:Redaktion Chemie. All marked/tagged sections with level 2 (that is ==) will be archived seven days after placement of a Template:T block. The archive is at Wikipedia:Redaktion Chemie/Archiv. The archiving will be done to Wikipedia:Redaktion Chemie/Archiv/2007/Januar if the first comment in this section was made in January.

{{Autoarchive resolved section

That will look like this:

SpBot archives all sections tagged with Template:Tlx after 7 days. For the archive overview, see Archive.

Signature format[edit source]

The date and time part of the signature is important for recognition of the timestamp. The default format specified by MediaWiki and automatically created, when ~~~~ or ~~~~~ is entered, is sufficient: 03:40, 14 November 2019 (UTC), also with abbreviated month: Nov. This corresponds to the following structure with Mediawiki variables: {{CURRENTTIME}}, {{CURRENTDAY}} {{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTYEAR}} (UTC) (short month name: {{CURRENTMONTHABBREV}}. When directly entered these variables must be substituted (the according {{LOCAL…}} variants can be used, as well).

Other formats are not supported.

Error lists[edit source]

Talk pages containing errors in their main template usage or in Template:T are shown in the following lists and on the corresponding talk page.
