{{tlg}} (template link, general) is a general template for inserting a template link. It can be used to replace or implement any of the more specific {{tl*}} templates, e.g. {{tl}}, {{tlx}} or {{tlb}}. Parameters are:

  • <syntaxhighlight lang="text" enclose="none">​bold=yes​</syntaxhighlight>: Boldface the text, like for {{tlb}} and {{tlxb}}
  • <syntaxhighlight lang="text" enclose="none">​italic=yes​</syntaxhighlight>: Italicizes the parameters, like for {{tlxi}}
  • <syntaxhighlight lang="text" enclose="none">​tt=yes​</syntaxhighlight>: Use a monospaced font, like for {{tlx}} and {{tlxb}}
  • <syntaxhighlight lang="text" enclose="none">​code=yes​</syntaxhighlight>: Use the <code>...</code> HTML attribute (usually a monospaced font), like for {{tlc}}
  • <syntaxhighlight lang="text" enclose="none">​nolink=yes​</syntaxhighlight>: Don't insert a template link, like for {{tlf}}, {{tld}}, and {{tlc}}
  • <syntaxhighlight lang="text" enclose="none">​anypage=yes​</syntaxhighlight>: Allow linking to arbitrary page (not just template), as with {{tlu}}
  • <syntaxhighlight lang="text" enclose="none">​braceinside=yes​</syntaxhighlight>: Put braces inside the link, like for {{tn}}
  • <syntaxhighlight lang="text" enclose="none">​subst=yes​</syntaxhighlight>: Add a <syntaxhighlight lang="text" enclose="none">​subst:​</syntaxhighlight> prefix, like for {{tls}}
  • <syntaxhighlight lang="text" enclose="none">​alttext=FOO​</syntaxhighlight>: Specify alternative surface text for a link, like for {{tla}}


On the source sister projects, en.wikipedia and Meta, X0, X1, X2,..., X9 are sandbox templates for experimentation on involved templates that need be in template space. An auto-cleansing software facility exists that might be used to duplicate the facility on other Sister projects.
Code Result Remark
{{Tlg|Abc}} {{Abc}}  
{{Tlg|ABC}} {{ABC}}  
{{Tlg|AbC}} {{AbC}}  
{{Tlg|x0}} {{x0}}  
{{Tlg|x0|bold=yes}} {{x0}}  
{{Tlg|x1|one|italic=yes}} {{x1|one}}  
{{Tlg|x0|code=yes}} {{x0}}  
{{Tlg|x0|tt=yes}} {{x0}}  
{{Tlg|x0|nolink=yes}} {{x0}}  
{{Tlg|x0|subst=yes}} {{subst:x0}}  
{{Tlg|x0|braceinside=yes}} {{x0}}  
{{Tlg|x0|alttext=Link to x0 template}} {{Link to x0 template}}  
{{Tlg|x0|anypage=yes}} {{x0}} Now the expression links to x0 (the spaceship, genetic disease, etc.) rather than Template:x0. Mostly useful for templates in user space.
{{Tlg|x0|bold=yes|tt=yes|braceinside=yes}} {{x0}} No reason you can't combine multiple parameter settings.
{{Tlg|x1|one}} {{x1|one}}  
{{Tlg|x2|one|two}} {{x2|one|two}}  
{{Tlg|x2|bold=yes|tt=yes|one|two}} {{x2|one|two}} Can combine named and anonymous parameters ...
{{Tlg|x2|one|two|bold=yes|tt=yes}} {{x2|one|two}} ... in any order …
{{Tlg|x2|one|tt=yes|two|bold=yes|three}} {{x2|one|two|three}} ... even intermixed ...
{{Tlg|x2|one|tt=yes|two|bold=yes|three|italic=yes}} {{x2|one|two|three}} ... with many different configurations.
{{Tlg|x3|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10}} {{x3|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10}}  
{{Tlg|x4|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10|11}} {{x4|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10|...}} up to 10 parameters, then ...
{{Tlg|x5|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10&#124;11}} {{x5|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10|11}} &#124; for more
{{Tlg|convert|<nowiki>14|m|ftin|abbr=out|sp=us</nowiki>}} unlimited parameters as one nowiki string
{{Tlg}} {{Tlg/doc}} with no arguments, the current page name is substituted
{{Tlg|x1|x=u}} {{x1}} = won't work
{{Tlg|x1|x&#61;u}} {{x1|x=u}} &#61; is okay
{{Tlg|x1|x{{=}}u}} {{x1|x=u}} {{=}} is okay
{{Tlg|x1|<nowiki>x=u</nowiki>}} {{x1|x=u}} sticky nowiki is okay
{{Tlg|x2| |two}} {{x2|two}} empty won't work
{{Tlg|x2|&#32;|two}} {{x2| |two}} &#32; is okay
{{Tlg|x2|&nbsp;|two}} {{x2| |two}} &nbsp; is okay
{{Tlg|x2| &#124; two}} {{x2| | two}} &#124; is okay
{{Tlg|x2| {{!}} two}} {{x2| | two}} {{!}} is dubious
{{Tlg|x2|<nowiki/>|two}} {{x2||two}} empty nowiki string works
{{Tlg|x2|2=|3=two}} {{x2|two}} empty really doesn't work
{{Tlg|x2|2=one|two}} {{x2|two}} two clobbers 2=one
{{Tlg|x2|3=two|2=one}} {{x2|one|two}} right to left okay
