 [purge] Template documentation

## Usage

Code:

```* {{tlx|example|parameter1|parameter2...}}
* {{tlx|SISTER=W:|example|parameter1|parameter2...}}
```

Result:

• {{example|parameter1|parameter2...}}
• {{example|parameter1|parameter2...}}

This template creates example usage syntax for a template, and links the name to the template page. The "SISTER" parameter specifies an interwiki prefix to link to another wiki.

### Examples

## Technical documentation

### Naming

The name is derived from "Template list expanded".

### Behaviour

• Up to 7 pass parameters (numbered) for the specified template are displayed as 'placeholders', and more parameters are shown as "|...", for details see the the Wikipedia talk page.
• If given no additional parameters except `'template name' ({{{1}}}),` it displays a simple link wrapped in braces (similar to {{tl}}).
