Template:Equipment page


This template is intended to be used on all tool pages (except pages of tools that are no longer at Protospace—those should use Template:Equipment page removed). Follow the procedure outlined on the Adding New Tools Procedure page to add a page for a new tool.

The template's syntax is as follows:

{{Equipment page
| toolname      = Type of tool
| model         = Make and/or model of tool
| serial        = Serial number (if applicable)
| owner         = Original owner/donor (or buyers if the tool was group-bought)
| loanstatus    = Short-term loan, semi-permanent loan, or donated to Protospace
| arrived       = When the equipment showed up
| location      = Where one can find the tool/where it belongs
| status        = "Functional"/"Working", "Broken"/"Needs fixing", etc.
                      (If it needs fixing, please elaborate later in the article.)
| permission    = "Private", "Ask owner first"," Open to full members",
                      "Open to members & friends", "Open to all", or something else as appropriate
| certification = "Self-taught" or "Certification required" as appropriate
| id            = Unique ID number redirecting to the tool's page
| caption       = (optional) A caption for the image
| photo         = (optional) A file link to a photo of the tool.
                      Standardly filename.jpg with the appropriate filename and extension substituted.
                      (You will need to upload the file if it doesn't already exist on the wiki.)
}}

It generates the following on the tool page:

← Back to tools we have

NoImage.png
Type {{{toolname}}}
Make/Model {{{model}}}
Serial number {{{serial}}}
Original owner {{{owner}}}
Loan status {{{loanstatus}}}
Arrival date {{{arrived}}}
Location {{{location}}}

It also adds the page to Category:Tools.
