This is the {{check talk wp}} meta-template.

This template is invisible except under the conditions described below.

Usage

This template may be incorporated into other templates that are intended to be used only on talk pages or "Wikipedia:" space pages. If a template containing it is added to a page in any subject space other than Wikipedia space, then a warning message will be displayed encouraging people to use that template only on talk pages. The current text of the warning message is:

This template is misplaced. It belongs on the talk page: Template talk:Check talk wp/doc.

It also adds the pages to Category:Pages with misplaced templates for easier tracking and rectification.

This template can simply be used like this:

{{check talk wp}}

But if you want to have the ability to selectively turn off this template, for instance if you show your template on a Help page, then use this template like this:

{{check talk wp| nocat={{{nocat|}}} }}

Then you can feed "nocat = true" to your template when you demonstrate it on a page, and then this template will not show any error message and will not categorize it.
