Returns a generalized term for a page's thingamabob … err … Wotsitcalled? Right … Namespace!

The "return value" is used in several templates to create different phrases and categories or as a condition where {{main talk file other}} is too generic.



Parameter Parameter description req./opt.
{{{1}}} a supplemental noun such as section or paragraph added to thingamabob optional

Known issues

An attempt to create a plural of the resulting string via {{thingamabob}}s may look odd or become grammatically wrong. Localisation can be tough and should probably defer the strings to system messages.

The default behaviour is to return {{lc:{{NAMESPACE}}}}, hence if new namespaces are added to the wiki, {{thingamabob}} may require an update to reflect or "rename" the content type of those namespaces.
