Usage সম্পাদনা কৰক

The template {{As of}} is used to mark potentially dated statements, and add an article in the appropriate "As of..." category. This allows editors to catalogue statements that may become dated over time. The date used for a given statement should be the current date (for currently valid statements) or the date on which the cited reference was produced (for example, when using census data). It also includes the ISO 8601 format needed by hAtom (class="updated") and hCalendar (class="dtstart") microformats through use of the {{Start date}} template. Unlike the {{Update after}} template, {{As of}} does not require the editor to give a full date. This template should not be subst'd.

Syntax সম্পাদনা কৰক

The template can be used in the following forms:

{{As of|year|month|day}}
{{As of|year|month}}
{{As of|year}}

Several additional named parameters can also be used (see below).
