The template link template is a simple macro template used to display a template name as a link surrounded by braces, thus showing how the template name would be used in code. Its primary use is in instruction and documentation. A short example is that the code:


More complex variations are described below.

{{Tl2}} differs in that it displays an arguably clearer result like {{Tlx}}, and also takes the named parameters 'SISTER=xx' and 'LANG=ll', so that it may also be used to list and link to templates on other English and non-English language sister projects.

{{Tlx}} displays with the same enhanced presentation, and also expands several 'placeholder' parameters to generate a sample template call.


 {{Tl|Template name to display}}
 {{Tl2|Template name to display}} -- local link, just like Tl.
 {{Tl2|SISTER=V:|Template name to display}} -- displays a template on Wikiversity
 {{Tl2|LANG=fr.|SISTER=wikisource|Template name to display}} -- displays a template 
                       on the French Wikisource sister project.
 {{Tl|1==)}} -- use 1= where the template name contains an equals sign (as [[template:=)]] does).


Code Result
{{Tl|X0}} {{X0}}
{{Tl2|X1}} {{X1}}
{{Tl2|SISTER=M:|3x}} {{3x}}
{{Tl2|SISTER=wikibooks|LANG=de:|WP}} {{WP}}
{{Tl|1==)}} {{=)}}
