Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


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

Formal Usage[edit]

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


Template usage Equivalent wikicode Final result
{{GTS|Infinity|2001}} [[GTS Infinity (2001)|GTS ''Infinity'' (2001)]] GTS Infinity (2001)
{{GTS|Finnjet}} [[GTS Finnjet|GTS ''Finnjet'']] GTS Finnjet

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

Optional display control parameter[edit]

There is an optional third parameter that controls which pieces of text are displayed in the article. Its value is treated as a binary number and will display the corresponding "bits". So setting the 4's bit will display GTS, 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:

Value Parameter(s)
Example Equivalent wikicode Final result
None all {{GTS|Infinity|2001}} [[GTS Infinity (2001) |GTS ''Infinity'' (2001)]] GTS Infinity (2001)
1 3rd {{GTS|Infinity|2001|1}} [[GTS Infinity (2001) |2001]] 2001
2 2nd {{GTS|Infinity|2001|2}} [[GTS Infinity (2001) |''Infinity'']] Infinity
3 2nd, 3rd {{GTS|Infinity|2001|3}} [[GTS Infinity (2001) |''Infinity'' (2001)]] Infinity (2001)
4 invalid result {{GTS|Infinity|2001|4}} [[GTS Infinity (2001) |Invalid Optional Parameter]] GTS Infinity (2001)
5 1st, 3rd {{GTS|Infinity|2001|5}} [[GTS Infinity (2001) |GTS (2001)]] GTS 2001
6 1st, 2nd {{GTS|Infinity|2001|6}} [[GTS Infinity (2001) |GTS ''Infinity'']] GTS Infinity
(no 3rd)
Alternate usage: {{GTS|Finnjet||2}}
[[GTS Finnjet|''Finnjet'']] Finnjet

N.B.: Be careful with the third parameter if not using the second parameter. In the Finnjet 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.

 {{GTS|Infinity|2001|6}} yields the same results as {{warship|GTS|Infinity|2001}}
