    Module:Namespace detect/doc

    This is the documentation page for Module:Namespace detect

    This module allows you to output different text depending on the namespace that a given page is in. It is a Lua implementation of the {{namespace detect}} template, with a few improvements: all namespaces and all namespace aliases are supported, and namespace names are detected automatically for the local wiki.


    {{#invoke: Namespace detect | main
    | page              = <!-- page to detect namespace for, if not the current page -->
    | main              = <!-- text to return for the main namespace -->
    | talk              = <!-- text to return for talk namespaces -->
    <!-- text to return for specific subject namespaces -->
    | portal            = 
    | category          = 
    | user 	            = 
    | wikipedia         = 
    | mediawiki         = 
    | book              = 
    | timedtext         = 
    | template          = 
    | special           = 
    | media             = 
    | file              = 
    | image             = 
    | help 	            = 
    | module            = 
    | other             = <!-- text to return for unspecified namespaces -->
    | demospace         = <!-- namespace to display text for -->
    | subjectns         = <!-- set to "yes" to treat talk pages as the corresponding subject page -->


    • main - text to return if the page is in the main namespace.
    • talk - text to return if the page is in a talk namespace. This can be any talk namespace - it will match any of "Talk:", "Wikipedia talk:", "User talk:", etc.
    • Subject namespace parameters, e.g. wikipedia, user, file... - the text to return if the page is in the corresponding namespace. This module accepts all subject namespaces as parameters, including namespace aliases and virtual namespaces. See below for a list of supported values.
    • other - text to return if no parameters for the page's namespace were specified. This text is also returned if |demospace= is set to an invalid namespace value.
    • subjectns - if on a talk page, use the corresponding subject page. Can be set with values of "yes", "y", "true" or "1".
    • demopage - specifies a page to detect the namespace of. If not specified, and if the |demospace= parameter is not set, then the module uses the current page.
    • demospace - force the module to behave as if the page was in the specified namespace. Often used for demonstrations.

    Namespace parameters

    Possible values for subject namespace parameters are as follows:

    Namespace Aliases
    farthest frontier project
    file image
    gadget definition

    Table function

    Use the following to display a table with the different possible namespace parameters:

    {{#invoke:Namespace detect|table|talk=yes}}

    To include the parameter for talk namespaces, use |talk=yes.

    Porting to different wikis

    This module is designed to be portable. To use it on a different wiki, all you need to do is to change the values in Module:Namespace detect/config. Instructions are available on that page.

    Technical details

    The module uses a data page at Module:Namespace detect/data. This page is loaded with mw.loadData, which means it is processed once per page rather than once per #invoke. This was done for performance reasons.
