Template:City Summary

The UESPWiki – Your source for The Elder Scrolls since 1995
Jump to: navigation, search


This template provides a uniform look for all cities, and should be used at the top of the pages. It automatically fills in the breadcrumb trails, primary image, and primary description. The description is also made available for other templates, such as {{Place Link}}.


Note that several parameters are case-insensitive for backwards compatibility. Lower-case parameters are customary for templates. Parameters marked as being "autolinked" can be provided either as links or plain text and will convert plain text to links.
