Usage[edit source]

This template ({{Start date}}) returns a date, or date-time. It also includes the same date (and time) duplicated in a hidden (by CSS) ISO date format, for use in microformats. This hidden date degrades gracefully when CSS is not available.

Syntax[edit source]

  • {{Start date|year|month|day}}
  • {{Start date|year|month|day|HH|MM|SS|TimeZone}} (MM and SS are optional; TimeZone may be a numerical value, or "Z" for UTC; see examples)

Examples:

  • {{Start date|1993}} returns "1993 (1993)"
  • {{Start date|1993|02}} returns "Februeri 1993 (1993-02)"
  • {{Start date|1993|02|24}} returns "Februeri 24, 1993 (1993-02-24)"
  • {{Start date|1993|02|24|08|30}} returns "08:30, Februeri 24, 1993 (1993-02-24T08:30)"
  • {{Start date|1993|02|24|08|||+01:00}} returns "Februeri 24, 1993 (+01:00) (1993-02-24T08+01:00)"
  • {{Start date|1993|02|24|08|||-07:00}} returns "Februeri 24, 1993 (-07:00) (1993-02-24T08-07:00)"
    {{Start date|1993|02|24|08|30|23}} returns "08:30:23, Februeri 24, 1993 (1993-02-24T08:30:23)"
  • {{Start date|1993|02|24|08|30|23|Z}} returns "08:30:23, Februeri 24, 1993 (UTC) (1993-02-24T08:30:23Z)"
  • {{Start date|1993|02|24|08|30|23|+01:00}} returns "08:30:23, Februeri 24, 1993 (+01:00) (1993-02-24T08:30:23+01:00)"
  • {{Start date|1993|02|24|08|30|23|-07:00}} returns "08:30:23, Februeri 24, 1993 (-07:00) (1993-02-24T08:30:23-07:00)"

An optional parameter, df, can be set to "y" or "yes" (or indeed any value) to display the day before the month. This is primarily used in articles about events in parts of the world where the day precedes the month in a date.

Examples:

  • {{Start date|1993|02|24|df=y}} returns "24 Februeri 1993 (1993-02-24)"
  • {{Start date|1993|02|24|08|30|df=yes}} returns "08:30, 24 Februeri 1993 (1993-02-24T08:30)"

Note: The template will appear broken when the parameters are left blank (as seen above).
