This template is used to nominate inline templates for deletion. Templates which include this template, will be added to Category:Templates for deletion.

Usage

{{tfd-inline|TemplateName|Nomination}}

  • TemplateName: Name of the template being nominated for deletion. Do not include the Template: prefix.
  • Nomination (optional): If this template is nominated together with other templates in a group nomination, set this parameter to the section title, including the Template: prefix if there is one.

This is a variant of {{tfd}}. It should be used to tag TfD candidates that appear inline or in an infobox. See Category:Inline templates for some examples.

Example

For example, suppose that a template called {{raisins}} outputs the link "dried grapes." Here's how it might appear in an article:

Among her favorite fruits were apples, avocados, bananas, dried grapes, oranges, peaches and pears.

If the standard {{tfd}} tag were to be inserted into the template, the following would result:

Among her favorite fruits were apples, avocados, bananas, dried grapes, oranges, peaches and pears.

Obviously, it's impossible for the reader to identify the deletion candidate.

Using {{tfd-inline|raisins|fruit templates}} instead generates the following result:


Among her favorite fruits were apples, avocados, bananas, ‹The template raisins is being considered for deletion.›  dried grapes, oranges, peaches and pears.

As you can see, the downside is a greater degree of interference with the article's text, so the decision of which tag to use should be made on a case-by-case basis. If the insertion of either template is deemed too detrimental to a large number of articles, it might be advisable to place the notice on the template's talk page instead.
