Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible) [ view] [ edit] [ history] [ refresh]
This template is used to standardize the "Starring" and "Guest Starring" sections of Template:Infobox Episode. It can accommodate up to twenty actor/character pairings.
Starring| | <param1> | <param2> | <param3> | <param4> }} <etc.> Every two parameters are considered an actor/character pairing, accepting as many such pairings as you need to include.
Required: param1 is the actor name, with wiki markup for a link if desired: [[Matthew Mercer]]
Required: param2 is the character name (or "-self" designation), and this parameter accepts one of three options:
Any custom text, including wiki markup or HTML;
The letters DM or dm for a Dungeon Master line; or
A single letter from the table below, allowing editors to quickly pick a gendered "-self":
Gender Parameter Purpose Produces Text
f female Herself
m male Himself
z gender-neutral singular Zirself
i inanimate singular Itself
t -or- p gender-neutral plural Themselves
| [[Laura Bailey]] | f
| [[Matthew Mercer]] | m
| Bigby's Hand | i
| [[Umbrasyl (character)|]] | z
| Twitch Chat Critters | t
| Stuffed Trinket | An Adorable Companion
| [[Thordak]] | dm
The original format of this template was limited due to the code specifying a limited number of parameters with repetitive
#if statements and #switches. Revision 19215 marked the transition to new code using Extension:Variables and Extension:Loops.
This template was created by VeganCritter. Feedback is welcome, as this template can surely be improved.
