Usage

This template ({{End date}}) returns a date, or date-time. It also include the same date (and time) duplicated in a hidden (by CSS) ISO date format, for use inside other templates which emit microformats. It should not be used outside such templates. The hidden date degrades gracefully when CSS is not available.

Syntax

{{End date|year|month|day}}

Examples:

  • {{End date|1993|2|24}} -→ "February 24, 1993 (1993-02-24)"
  • {{End date|1993|2|24|08|30}} → "08:30, February 24, 1993 (1993-02-24T08:30)"

An optional parameter, df, can be set to "y" or "yes" (or indeed any value) to display the day before the month. This is primarily used in articles about events in parts of the world where the day precedes the month in a date.

Examples:

  • {{End date|1993|2|24}} → "24 February 1993 (1993-02-24)"

Use in microformats

The template returns the date as hCalendar's (class="dtend"). For example:

(<span class="dtend">1993-02-24T08:30</span>)

(disable CSS or view source to see the hidden ISO-formatted output).

Note: due to the requirement exclusive "dtend" in hCalendar, and the accessibility problems that presents when a date is rendered (as seen without CSS) as 28 March 1999 (1999-03-29) or even 28 February 1999 (1999-03-01) or 31 December 1999 (2000-01-01), the Date end template should not be used for whole-day dates and should have a time of 24:00:00 or 23:59:59.

See the microformats project for further details.
