Usage[edit]

This template is intended to hold a short description of an article, which can be edited from within Wikipedia.

Perhaps a bot might be used to import the initial short description from Wikidata – or not as preferred.

The idea is that a class can be set to display differently on desktop Wikipedia from how it displays on mobile view. The intention is to bring the short description within the immediate editing ability of most editors.

Example[edit]

At Oxygen therapy, replace the hidden comment with:

  • {{User:RexxS/Short description|use of high concentrations of oxygen as medical treatment}}

or

  • {{User:RexxS/Short description|1=use of high concentrations of oxygen as medical treatment}}

Use the second form if the text of the short description contains an equals sign (=).
