Usage[संपादन करीं]

This is a typing short cut for linking to steamship articles named in the format "MV Shipname (Year)". Since ship names are italicized in article text, linking to them in the usual manner means typing everything twice, such as [[MV Shipname (ID)|MV ''Shipname'' (ID)]]. This template halves that to {{MV|Shipname|ID}}.

Formal Usage[संपादन करीं]

  • {{MV|Ship Name}}
  • {{MV|Ship Name|ID}}, where ID can be the hull number, launch year, or pennant number, as specified in the article title.

Examples[संपादन करीं]

Template usage Equivalent wikicode Final result
{{MV|Aurora|2000}} [[MV Aurora (2000)|MV ''Aurora'' (2000)]] MV Aurora (2000)
{{MV|Capt Steven L. Bennett|T-AK-4296}} [[MV Capt Steven L. Bennett (T-AK-4296)|MV ''Capt Steven L. Bennett'' (T-AK-4296)]] MV Capt Steven L. Bennett (T-AK-4296)
{{MV|Blue Marlin}} [[MV Blue Marlin|MV ''Blue Marlin'']] MV Blue Marlin

Last example could be used to link to ship index (disambiguation) page

Optional display control parameter[संपादन करीं]

There is an optional third parameter that controls which pieces of text are displayed in the article. It's value is treated as a binary number and will display the corresponding "bits". So setting the 8's bit will add a slash ("/") in the prefix, the 4's bit will display MV, setting the 2's bit will display the ship name, and setting the 1's bit will display the ID. If binary math isn't your thing, refer to these examples:

8 all (with "M/V") {{MV|Aurora|2000}} [[MV Aurora (2000) |M/V ''Aurora'' (2000)]] M/V Aurora (2000)
13 1st, 3rd (with "M/V") {{MV|Aurora|2000|5}} [[MV Aurora (2000) |M/V (2000)]] M/V (2000)
14 1st, 2nd (with "M/V") {{MV|Aurora|2000|6}} [[MV Aurora (2000) |M/V ''Aurora'']] M/V Aurora
(no 3rd)
{{MV|Blue Marlin|3=2}}
Alternate usage: {{MV|Blue Marlin||2}}
[[MV Blue Marlin |''Blue Marlin'']] Blue Marlin

N.B.: Be careful with the third parameter if not using the second parameter. In the Blue Marlin example above, the "|3=2" means set the third parameter to a value of two, while the alternate syntax shows using a pair of pipes, "||2", to position the value two in the third parameter position.

Using an optional display control parameter value of 6 yields the same results as using {{warship}} to create the same link and text, but saving, coincidentally, 6 characters while editing.

 {{MV|Aurora|2000}} yields the same results as {{warship|MV|Aurora|2000}}
