The {{Tdeprecated}} template notifies users that a given template has been replaced by a different one. This is useful when usage is different (so a redirect won't work) or you'd like to reduce the number of redirects (which makes bot parsing more difficult).

Whenever possible, it should replace the deprecated template's content entirely, so that someone using the template will see the message.


{{Tdeprecated|old template name|new template name|date=August 2020}}

Usage without a date parameter categorises templates to Category:Deprecated templates. Adding the date parameter categorises the template to Category:Templates deprecated from August 2020.

If a deprecated template is still in use on other pages, add <noinclude></noinclude> tags around the {{Tdeprecated}} template. That way the template page will show the deprecation tag, but pages using it will not. If a template has been fully deprecated and is not in use on other pages, the noinclude tags may be removed. That way a deprecation tag will show on any page using the deprecated template. Afterwards consider nominating the template for deletion.
