Template:Title

Template:Title is a template to italicise titles (for books, games, journals etc.), make the first letter lowercase (for elvish words), and to make bracketed terms lowercase (for disambiguated items).

Small Brackets

This template will always make brackets lowercase. If all you need to do is make brackets lowercase, put the template in by itself without parameters.

{{title}}

For example:Anardil (King of Gondor).

Italics

If you want to make a title italic, use the "italics" parameter.

{{title|italics}}

For example: The Silmarillion and The Hobbit (1977 film).

Lowercase

If you want to make the first letter of the title lowercase (because MediaWiki automatically capitalise the first letter of page titles), use the "lowercase" parameter. This can be combined with italics.

{{title|lowercase}}
{{title|italics|lowercase}}

For example: Mírdain and Lalaith (word).

Journals

If you have a journal that you want to italicise, you can use the "journal" parameter. However, this can only be used with journals that are in the format "Journal Name #". If the title includes brackets just use "italics" above (e.g. The Catholic Herald (18 September 1981)); if the title includes unbracketed dates or issue numbers do not use this template.

{{title|journal}}

For example: Christian History 78.
