This is the documentation page, it should be transcluded into the main template page. See Template:Documentation for more information

This template is used to mark features exclusive to a specific edition or editions of Minecraft. It lists the editions specified by the parameters in a message box, either centered above the page or at the left margin above a section. It also adds the page to the related maintenance categories.

This template may only be used for pages or page sections that in their entirety describe content that is exclusive to those editions; when just mentioning a feature, use {{only}} instead.


Anonymous parameters[edit]

The template accepts any number of anonymous parameters, one for each version that has the feature. Known parameter values automatically select an associated edition name to display, page name for linking, and maintenance category. If an unknown parameter value is encountered, default values are generated by a formula (and might produce redlinks, which might or might not be intentional).

Named parameters[edit]

In addition to the anonymous parameters, the template accepts the following named parameters:

Named Parameter Effect
section=1 Changes the msgbox style to one more suited to an article section. Place this after a section header.
customtext=substitute text Replaces the msgbox text with substitute text.
nocat=1 Prevents the page from being added to any maintenance categories. Use this in documentation, talk pages, etc.
