Usage: {{CO|options|option2|option3|cat=|catdesc=|nolink=|nowiki=|nobanner=|thumbs=|checks=}}

NOTE: This template should appear somewhere on EVERY Wikibase page that falls within the Champions Online game wiki and does not contain some other template that already places it in Category:Champions Online.

if options is:

option2 and option3 are not used by all GameTags. See the specific docs, below, for information.

if nolink= is not blank, display the tag but add no category links.

if nowiki= is not blank, this game does not support the wiki but we do have a game site for it (Lineage II is a good example). In this case we still want a game tag to flag articles in the ZAM wiki that refer to the game, but it cannot link to a Wiki Main Page for the game, since there isn't one.

On games that use the www.zam.com skin (Runes of Magic, Vanguard, The Agency, DC Universe Online, etc.), nobanner= will suppress the game banner on the Page Title line.

thumbs= and checks= are NEW options that must be specifically enabled for the games where they will be used. They enable a link under the gametag to show the category page as thumbnails or as a checklist and should be used ONLY on category pages! Talk to Bludwyng if this confuses you. :)

The graphic displayed in the tag should be located at Champions Online (Game Icon), a page that should have the image uploaded to it, and contain the following code:


NOTE: This template calls GameTag to perform the actual display. The documentation you are viewing now can be viewed/edited at GameTag Docs.

Unlike most gamebases, where the gametag is intended to go ANYWHERE on the page, usually top or bottom, STO's gametag is designed for the top. This is because of the inclusion of the MenuBar in the gametag code.


For QZ only, if not blank any links to a zone Quest Series page is suppressed.

Additional Options

This template was copied from Aion and has all of the options form that template, for the time being. They will diverge more and more as more options are added/adjusted for this gamebase.

In addition to the standard GameTag options, the following values for option are defined for this game. Use of Q, M, or I indicates a placeholder page with some notes that should be combined with the complete template, later.
