< Template:Archived extension

PurposeEdit

For archiving extensions in a way that removes them from standard view, but is still accessible in revisions history. This allows the wiki to both respect the original contributor by not completely removing their work, while reducing the amount of content that may inadvertently cause confusion or problems for sysadmins and developers. Also add the page to Category:Archived extensions.

UsageEdit

{{Archived extension|oldID|reason=Depended on a service which no longer exists.}}

{{Archived extension|oldID|AltExtension1|AltExtension2|reason=Depended on a service which no longer exists.}}

oldID
Revision ID of the last revision which contained the extension's information
Can be found in the URL by visiting that revision from the page's history screen
If no oldid is provided, the page will automatically be placed in the category Archived extensions without an oldid.
AltExtension1, AltExtension2
Alternative extensions that perform similar functions
reason=
To provide a different explanation for why the extension is being archived
