Template:DeprecatedTpl/Doc

Goal

This template provides a way to mark other templates (or even itself...) as deprecated. This gives visibility on deprecated templates that must be updated while reading a page. The list of deprecated templates can be seen here. Then for each deprecated template you can check out Tools > Page information to list pages that include it.

Usage

DeprecatedTpl takes two optional arguments :

inline
If set, the deprecation indicator will be designed inline, whatever the value. If not set, the deprecation indicator will be design as a block.
use
Indicates the name of the template to use instead, if any.
