Documentation


(this part of the documentation is only available in some languages)

Takes a calendar dates in ISO 8601 extended format (YYYY-MM-DD, e.g. "2018-02-20") and hands it over to {{date}} to display it in localised format. Calendar dates This template is needed to catch some flaws of the automatic conversion by {{#time: }} for non-full dates (e.g. "77-09" for September 77 AD, which would throw an error with {{#time: }})

Usage

{{ISOdate|1=|2=|f=|form=}}

Parameters

Parameter name Description (this part of the documentation is only available in some languages) Default value required or optional?

Supported dates are any proleptic Gregorian calendar or Gregorian calendar dates between 1 January 32 AD and 31 December 9999 AD. Dates from 1 January 1 AD until 31 December 31 are not yet supported cause they are not distinguishable from dates in the format DD-MM-YY (this will most likely change after all ambiguous dates are cleaned up). Dates BC are not yet supported. Note: A date like "99-05-01" or "07-05-01" will always refer to the day in the first century, not the day in the 20th or 21st century. Please always note down the full year.

empty required
parameter #2 (2) language code (only needs to be provided if the language shall be fixed and independant from the user's preferences) value of {{int:Lang}} optional
f format ("Y" for year-only output ["{{ISOdate|2008-08-06|f=Y}}" will result in the output "2008(2008)") empty optional
form allows to specify differing syntactic forms to apply to the date (e.g. in some Polish phrases the month must appear in genitive form instead of nominative, so you have to set form to gen empty optional
