This template can be used to italicise page titles. It should only be used in articles that meet the criteria for italic titles given in the Article titles policy.

IF IT DOESN'T WORK: Try putting the template after the infobox. If it still doesn't work, use DISPLAYTITLE instead of this template; again, this may need to go after the infobox.

[edit] Usage

  • {{Italic title}} italicises the title automatically under certain circumstances. If the title is less than 50 characters in length, italicisation is always performed automatically:
    • Titles with no brackets () are fully italicised:
      • FooFoo
      • Talk:FooTalk:Foo
    • Titles which contain brackets are italicised before the first open bracket:
      • Foo (bar)Foo (bar)
      • Talk:Foo (bar)Talk:Foo (bar)
  • Titles longer than 50 characters are not automatically italicised. However, you can pass parameters for the template to test the title against: if a match is found, italicisation is performed:
    • {{Italic title| name | bracket1 | bracket2 | ... }}, where "name" is the first part of the title (before any brackets) and the "bracket#" are a list of up to five possible brackets:
      {{Italic title| Foo | bar | baz }} will italicise as follows:
      • FooFoo
      • Foo (bar)Foo (bar)
      • Foo (baz)Foo (baz)
      • Foo (quok)Foo (quok)
  • {{Italic title|force=true}} italicises the entire title including brackets, and will also italicise titles with more than 50 characters.
  • If an infobox is used that has an italic-title autofunction, then the {{Italic title}} template must be positioned after the infobox.
