Template:Autoarchive resolved section/doc

The syntax is mostly similar to that of template de:Template:Autoarchiv-Erledigt. For the target (archive) only its current is valid. This type of archiving is done by SpBot (not by MiszaBot).


{{Autoarchive resolved section
 |age =
 |archive =
 |show =
 |level =
 |timecompare =
 |timeout =

SpBot archiving requires the use of either {{section resolved}} or the timeout parameter of this template (normal archiving).

It does not matter where the template "Section resolved" is placed within the section. It will always refers to the last/previous heading of the section to be archived.

To quickly use a standard setup to archive your user talk page, see Template:Autoarchive resolved section/usertalksetup.

Template parameters

Parameter Description Default Status
age Parameter "age" defines the required age of the the template "Section resolved" in days. After this amount of days the section will be archived. empty required
archive You can use variables in your archive-parameter as listed below. Example: archive=Commons:Village pump/Archive/((year))((month:short)) empty required
overview The parameter "overview" can be used to display a link to the location of the archive page. Example code: overview=[[Wikipedia:Redaktion Chemie/Archiv]] Results in: For the archive overview, see Wikipedia:Redaktion Chemie/Archiv. An alternative to this parameter is the use of Template:Archive box. empty optional
latest archive The parameter "latest archive" can be used to display a link to the current archive. Example code: latest archive=[[Commons:Forum/Archiv/2011/October]] Results in: The latest archive is located under Commons:Forum/Archiv/2011/October. empty optional
show The parameter "show" defines if the template should display anything or not: show=yes or show=no. This parameter can be used if the template is used on a page which has an own intro explaining the archiving parameters. yes optional
level Parameter "level" defines which heading level should be archived. Deeper heading levels are treated as part of the specified level.
== talk page section level II ==
Such a heading is level 2.
==== talk page section level IV ====
Such a heading is level 4.
2 optional
timecompare This parameter specifies which timestamp should be used for distribution into the archives. In the parameter "archive" you can use variables refering to the date. "timecompare" defines which timestamp is used for this parameter "archive".
  • timecompare = resolved: Timestamp given by {{Section resolved}}
  • Any other value or empty: the latest timestamp of the whole section
Example: de:Wikipedia Diskussion:Hauptseite/Artikel des Tages/Vorschläge (sorry, this is the only known page yet)
empty optional
timeout Specifies the number of days have to pass by to consider a section as 'resolved' automatically, even if no {{Section resolved}} template was set. Archiving will be proceeded if the specified period of time (timeout) has passed since the last comment. The template {{DNAU}} is supported.
By setting this parameter you can get almost the same service as gived by MiszaBot (see User:MiszaBot/Archive HowTo). In this case, it is no longer necessary to use this template and additional to {{User:MiszaBot/config}}, which are processed by two different bots. Instead, only {{Autoarchive resolved section}} for SpBot is needed.
empty = 0 = turned off optional

The following example is derived from the archiving setup of Wikipedia:Redaktion Chemie. All marked/tagged sections with level 2 (that is ==) will be archived seven days after placement of Template:Section resolved. The archive is at Wikipedia:Redaktion Chemie/Archiv. The archiving will be done to Wikipedia:Redaktion Chemie/Archiv/2007/Januar if the first comment in this section was made in January.

{{Autoarchive resolved section

That will look like this:

SpBot archives all sections tagged with {{Section resolved|1=~~~~}} after 7 days. For the archive overview, see archive.

Signature format

The date and time part of the signature are important for recognition of the timestamp. The default format specified by MediaWiki is sufficient (11:55, 24. May 2015 (UTC)). It corresponds to the following structure:

{{subst:LOCALTIME}}, {{subst:LOCALDAY}}. {{subst:LOCALMONTHABBREV}} {{subst:LOCALYEAR}} (UTC)

Other formats are not supported.
