This template is used to configure the articles found in non-standard sections on Wikipedia Portal main pages; for example, Selected battle. It is used on the article pages that are linked to the Selected (whatever) sub-page, e.g. Portal:Foo/Selected whatever/1. For the quickest and easiest way to create the Portal:Foo/Selected bar sub-page and related article links, use one of the {{Numbered subpages}} templates.

Template layout

{{Selected X
| image      = 
| size       = 
| side       =
| caption    = 
| text       = <!--- Required --->
| link       = <!--- Required --->
| page       = <!--- Required --->
| pageplural = 
| archive    =



It is unnecessary to include braces, quotation marks or other wiki-markup in the template. The |text= field does allow the use of wiki-markup at the contributor's discretion.

  • image - Image relating to the subject of the article.
  • size - Set the size of the image here, it will default to 250px if no size is specified.
  • side - Set the location of the image here, it will default to left if no side is specified. Use right or center as the variable.
  • caption- Image caption, if any.
  • text - A brief summary of the subject.
  • link - Wikilink to the main article about the subject.
  • archive - Using this field with a value of no will remove the More selected articles link in the lower left corner. Use this field if you are using the |footer= parameter in the {{random box-header subpage}} template on the main portal page.
  • page - What this is a list of selected things of. For example, if you want to link to Portal:Foo/Selected battle, page = battle.
  • pageplural - Used to override simply adding an "s" to the end of "page" to pluralise it. For instance, for Portal:Foo/Selected company', pageplural = companies


{{Selected X
| image   = Coq au vin.jpg
| size    = 
| caption = Coq au vin
| text    =
'''''Coq au vin''''' is a [[France|French]] [[braise]] of [[Chicken (food)|chicken]] cooked with [[wine]], [[lardon]]s, [[Edible mushrooms|mushroom]]s, and optionally [[garlic]]...
| link    = Coq au vin
| page    = food
| pageplural = food

Will produce this:

Coq au vin
Coq au vin is a French braise of chicken cooked with wine, lardons, mushrooms, and optionally garlic...

While the wine is typically Burgundy, many regions of France have variants of coq au vin using the local wine, such as coq au vin jaune (Jura), coq au Riesling (Alsace), coq au pourpre or coq au violet (Beaujolais nouveau), coq au Champagne, and so on.
