Usage

This template is for cities and towns. The following parameters are required:

  • name (name of the city or town)
  • year (year the city was incorporated)
  • population (self-explanatory)
  • mayor (name of the mayor)

The following parameters are optional, but will display the default if not specified:

  • type (usually "Town" or "City"; defaults to "City")
  • logo (image of city logo; include full image format (e.g. [[Image:Birmingham city logo.jpg|250px]]); defaults to blank space)
  • schools (the school district; defaults to "name City Schools")
  • council (the city's governing body; defaults to "name type Council", if type is specified, else "name City Council")
  • fire (the city's fire department; defaults to "name Fire Department")
  • police (the city's police department; defaults to "name Police Department")
  • website (official web site for the city; use normal external link format (e.g. [http://www.informationbirmingham.com/ informationbirmingham.com]); defaults to "None")
  • map (map of city location; include full image format (e.g. [[Image:Vestavia Hills map.png|255px]]); defaults to blank space)

This parameter is optional (and was added for Adamsville):

  • year2 (additional text after the year of incorporation; does not automatically link)

These parameters are also optional, having to do with the Google Maps link:

  • locate (city name for link; defaults to "name"; used when the name has spaces, which should be replaced with plus signs (+) (e.g. locate=Vestavia+Hills))
  • state (defaults to "AL")
  • zoom (0-17, recommended 10-16; defaults to 12)
  • maptype ("m" for map (default), "k" for satellite, "h" for hybrid)
