This documentation is transcluded from Template:Anchor/doc.

This template creates an anchor where it is placed, that is, a point which can be linked like a section header either from somewhere within that page, another Commons page, or another website. It has no visual output.

Usage

{{anchor |anchor= }}

1. {{anchor|foo}}

could be linked to with [[#foo|...]] from within the same article,
or it could be linked to with [[articlename#foo|…]] from other articles and from redirects.

2. Anchors can be more suitable for inter-article linking than section titles are. For example,

=={{anchor|foo}} Section title ==
Here, links via [[articlename#foo]] would remain valid even if the section were renamed.

Template parameters

<templatedata>JSON</templatedata> ./. {{TemplateBox}}
TemplateData

TemplateData is a way to store information about template parameters (the description of those and of the whole template) for both humans and machines. It is used by VisualEditor and possibly other tools like Upload Wizard.


Existing template documentation
At Wikimedia Commons, it is recommended to use {{TemplateBox}} with either useTemplateData=1 or useTemplateData=only on the /doc subpage and transcluding it with {{Documentation}} into the template. <nowiki>-tags can be wrapped around the arguments, if required, to avoid templates being expanded.

Newly created template documentation and imports
Another option, especially for imported templates, or for users with JSON experience, is placing raw <templatedata>-tags into the Wikitext of the template, as described in various Wikipediae.

Discussion
There is an ongoing discussion about that matter. Feel invited to comment if you are experienced in either way, your time permits and if you like to share your opinion or to make a suggestion.
