This is the documentation page for Template:Episode list/doc.
When it is viewed directly, links using variables may appear broken; do not replace these with hardcoded page names or URLs.
Warning When changing this template instead of using it, remember to keep it as small as possible due to template limits. Additions should be rare and heavily discussed.
  • For lists that only want to list titles and air dates, etc, and do not want to include summaries can remove |ShortSummary=, which will remove the colored line separator and any cell coloring.

Parameters

Episode list parameters (and basic guidelines)
EpisodeNumber
(optional)
A number representing the episode's order in the series. For example, the first episode would be 1 or 01, and so on.
EpisodeNumber2
(optional)
A second episode number column. Useful for when a series aired in a different order, or only included certain episodes, etc.
Title The title of the episode. The title will appear bold and in "quotes" when rendered, so it is not necessary to place them in quotes before hand. Only link to an episode article if it's already been created.
AltTitle
(optional)
An alternative title, such as the title of the episode in Japanese if it is an anime, or a title that was originally changed. It will be listed below Title and be presented in "quotes".
Aux1
Aux2
Aux3
(optional)
Optional parameters. The meaning is specified by the table header.
OriginalAirDate
(optional)
This is the date the episode first aired on TV.
AltDate
(optional)
The next notable air date, such as the first air date of an anime in English.
ProdCode
(optional)
The production code in the series
ShortSummary
(optional)
A short summary of the episode. Make summaries specific to that episode (as in, a description that would normally not be confused with another episode).
LineColor
(optional)
Hex codes for the separator line between episode entries. Use code without the #. #00ff00 would be entered as 00ff00. When none is defined the color defaults to "#CCCCFF".


This is where information from the template is placed when rendered ({{{LineColor}}} not shown, since there's no text to display, just a color):

Template:Television Episode

Using the template

When using optional parameters (such as Aux1, AltDate, etc) only list the parameters that are being used, and adjust the table headers accordingly. This will help avoid confusion when one entry has a parameter filled out and another does not. A table cell will be open for a listed parameter, whether it is filled out or not.

To apply an entry to an episode listing add the following where the episode would go in the List of episodes.

{{Episode list
 |EpisodeNumber=
 |EpisodeNumber2=
 |Title=
 |AltTitle=
 |Aux1=
 |Aux2=
 |Aux3=
 |OriginalAirDate=
 |AltDate=
 |ProdCode=
 |ShortSummary=
 |LineColor=
}}

Because this is only part of a WikiTable, you first need to open the WikiTable. You need to edit this example according to the options that you want to show in your table. For example to create a list with: Screenshot, Title, Original airdate, Production code and Episodenumber, but NOT with Aux1, Aux2 and AltDate colums.

{| class="wikitable" style="width:100%; margin:auto;"
|-
! width="20"|# !! Title !! width="120"|Original airdate !! width="120"|Production code

The Television episode template(s) would the follow here

{{Episode list
 |EpisodeNumber=01
 |Title=[[Cartman Gets an Anal Probe]]
 |OriginalAirDate=[[August 13]], [[1997]]
 |ProdCode=101
 |ShortSummary=Space aliens implant a transmitter in [[Eric Cartman|Cartman]] and abduct [[Kyle Broflovski|Kyle]]'s brother.
 |LineColor=333333
}}

After the final episode entry/template you will need to close the WikiTable with:

Example

# Title Original airdate Production code
01 "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe"August 13, 1997101

Space aliens implant a transmitter in Cartman and abduct Kyle's brother.
