Article templates

Jump to: navigation, search

TekWiki offers a number of Wiki templates that generate uniform information boxes, headlines, categories and the like.

Here's how to use some of these.

Oscilloscopes and similar instruments

{{Oscilloscope Sidebar |
  title=Name of model  |
  summary=Short description of what it is |
  image=Photo of XYZ.jpg |
  caption=What exactly is shown in the photo |
  introduced=year the model was introduced |
  discontinued=last year the model was sold + 1 |
  manuals=
  * [http://some.external.site XYZ Service Manual] (PDF, OCR, 13 MB)
  * [[Media:0970-9876-99.pdf|XYZ Operator's Manual]] (PDF, 5 MB)

The template adds [[Category:Introduced in (year)]] to the article. If the introduction or discontinuation year is unknown, please use (?) in its place, e.g. introduced=(?).

Example:

{{Oscilloscope Sidebar |
 title=Tektronix 7603 |
 summary=100 MHz non-storage mainframe |
 image=7603-4trace.jpg |
 caption=Tektronix 7603 |
 introduced=1973 |
 discontinued=1990 |
 manuals=
 * [[Media:070-1429-00.pdf|Tektronix 7603 Manual (PDF, 35 MB)]]
 }}

Plug-ins

{{Plugin Sidebar 2 |
  title=Name of model  |
  summary=Short description of what it is |
  image=Photo of XYZ.jpg |
  caption=What exactly is shown in the photo |
  introduced=year the model was introduced |
  discontinued=last year the model was sold + 1 |
  series=link to the page describing the instrument(s) this plug-in fits |
  manuals=
  * [http://some.external.site XYZ Service Manual] (PDF, OCR, 13 MB)
  * [[Media:0970-9876-99.pdf|XYZ Operator's Manual]] (PDF, 5 MB)

The template adds [[Category:Introduced in (year)]] to the article. If the introduction or discontinuation year is unknown, please use (?) in its place, e.g. introduced=(?).

Example:

{{Plugin Sidebar 2|
 title=Tektronix 7A22 |
 summary=1 MHz differential amplifier |
 image=tek-7a22-front.jpg | 
 caption=7A22 front view | 
 introduced=1969 |
 discontinued=1991 |
 series=[[7000-series scopes]]|
 manuals=
 * [http://w140.com/smb/7a22_sm.pdf  Tektronix 7A22 Manual (OCR, PDF)]
}}

TM500/TM5000 plugins

{{TM500 | mfg=Tektronix | type=DM502 | function=basic 3½ digit digital multimeter | class=multimeter | image=Tek dm502 e1.jpg | introduced=1975 | discontinued=1988 |
 manuals=
 * [http://w140.com/tek_dm502.pdf Tektronix DM502 Manual (PDF)]
 }}
 
{{TM5000 | mfg=Tektronix | type=AM5030 | function=current probe amplifier | class=amplifier | image=Tek am5030.jpg | introduced=1994 | discontinued=(?) | manuals=
 * [[Media:070-8766-05.pdf|Tektronix AM503B AM5030 Manual (PDF)]]
 }}
 

The template adds [[Category:Introduced in (year)]] to the article. If the introduction or discontinuation year is unknown, please use (?) in its place, e.g. introduced=(?).

The template adds [[Category:TM500(0) (class) plugins]] to the article, e.g. [[Category:TM500 multimeter plugins]] in the first example above.

In addition to the sidebar, this template generates a first paragraph as "The (mfg) (type) is a (function) plug-in for the TM500(0) system.", e.g.

The Tektronix AM5030 is a current probe amplifier plug-in for the TM5000 system.
