Template:Adt/doc

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Adt creates the 'accessdate' field and value for most Citation templates.

Access dates may be implemented in three formats and should be consistent throughout the article:

  • D Month YYYY: 3 July 2020 ("DMY" – day followed by full month name, followed by year; no leading zeros)
  • Month D, YYYY: July 3, 2020 ("MDY" – full month name then day; comma separating the day and year; no leading zeros)
  • YYYY-MM-DD: 2020-07-03 ("ISO" — all numeric, with 2-digit day and month)

Usage

This template MUST be subst'd.

When subst'd, the template provides the accessdate parameter name, the = sign, and the formatted date. You may specify a date format to be consistent with the other citations in the article:

 |accessdate=CURRENTDAY CURRENTMONTHNAME CURRENTYEAR


 |accessdate=CURRENTMONTHNAME CURRENTDAY, CURRENTYEAR


 |accessdate=CURRENTYEAR-CURRENTMONTH2-CURRENTDAY2

 |accessdate=7 July 2020
 (default; the most common internationally)

 |accessdate=7 July 2020
 (same as default)

 |accessdate=July 7, 2020
 (chiefly US)

 |accessdate=2020-07-07
 (ISO 8601; chiefly technical)

Note that the template does not include the leading pipe (|); always precede {{subst:adt}} with a pipe character as in the examples above.
