Description Kellen 2005-08-19 04:51:40 UTC
Please add conditional statements to mediawiki. Simple If-else will do.

These would be most useful for templates with named parameters, such that values
could be omitted and the template could more intelligently display the contents
without ugly {{{VARNAME}}} output. On the wikibooks cookbook, for example, this
could be used to show a different "Recipe Summary" for recipes that have an
Image location passed as a variable, without needed a distinct template for this

I hope this isn't getting too "programmy" for mediawiki. I didn't see this in
any resolved bugs.

Please see the [[Template:Qif]] or [[b:Template:If]] (although the Qif template
is supposedly more efficient, since it doesn't call an auxiliary template).
There is also a specialized [[m:Template:If defined call]] template.

Parser functions.
